How Recruiting Software can Help you Make the Right Hire


According to a 2013 hiring study from CareerBuilder, 66 percent of U.S. employers have been affected by a bad hire. Besides wasting your recruiters’ time and your company’s money, bad hires can profoundly affect the long-term viability of your organization. Recruiting software, when used correctly, can help you make the right hire to grow your business.

If you were to ask your talent acquisition team for suggestions on how to improve your hiring process, you’ll likely hear as many different ideas as there are stars in the sky. However, it all boils down to two main problems:

  • Too many applicants
  • Not enough applicants

Simple, right?

Sure, there are other concerns, but the root of most recruitment issues is applicant volume. Thankfully, a well-designed (and properly utilized!) applicant tracking system (ATS) like Recruiterbox can alleviate issues surrounding applicant volume — both too much and too little.
