Using Automation to Navigate High Applications per Req

With over 18 months of dramatic shifts in the labor market, talent acquisition (TA) teams are remaining agile, adopting automation and AI strategies to fill roles with top talent quickly. That’s not to say it accomplished easily.

The talent market is competitive and will require talent teams to act swiftly and intelligently to out-hire their competition in the coming year. At our annual event, Recruiter Nation Live (RNL), on December 7, TA professionals shared their hopes for amplifying recruiting in 2022 including tips on sourcing candidates quickly, using automation to improve time-to-hire and even a panel on outrageous ideas for recruiting top talent.

Diamond RNL sponsor and Jobvite partner, LinkedIn, presented their actionable strategies on using automation in recruiting in their event session outlining how talent teams can improve their processes with LinkedIn ATS integrations.

This is especially exciting for Jobvite customers as Jobvite is a Platinum member of LinkedIn’s ATS Preferred Partner Program, offering multiple LinkedIn Hiring integrations to customers and driving adoption of these solutions at scale.

Find quality candidates quickly with LinkedIn and Jobvite

Grow your talent with the Great Reshuffle

Over the past 18+ months, employees have gone through a massive reshuffling of jobs and employers – and it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down any time soon. A record number of candidates are transitioning careers around the world – up 50% in June-August of 2021 on LinkedIn. This means that talent strategy innovation and eliminating steps in recruiting workflows should be high priorities for recruiters.

ATS integrations help uncover qualified candidates

LinkedIn Recruiter’s hiring integrations enable recruiters to access real-time candidate information to make effective talent decisions and power positive candidate experiences across both LinkedIn and Jobvite. Additional LinkedIn integrations functionality, Unified Search and Recommended Matches, allow recruiters to find and source relevant, qualified talent, smarter and faster within the Jobvite workflow leveraging the LinkedIn platform. Next on this list of integrations going live is Apply Connect, which will allow customers to automatically post jobs and leverage LinkedIn applicant highlights (including relevant skills) to quickly identify quality candidates in Jobvite. Candidates too will have a more seamless experience applying to roles without having to leave LinkedIn to complete their application.

Utilize smart reporting to improve candidate experience

No matter how evolved your recruiting team is, there are always ways to save recruiting time and effort in the hiring process. Use ATS-enabled reporting in LinkedIn to evaluate different points in the hiring funnel and gain valuable insights on how to improve the sourcing, interviewing, and hiring processes for both candidate and recruiter.

Source smarter and faster

During high levels of turnover and reshuffling, integrations help create a positive experience and improve productivity for recruiters. Jobvite has been a long-time partner with LinkedIn to bring TA teams world-class integrations with Jobvite’s Applicant Tracking System. Recently, LinkedIn announced the release of their new integration with applicant tracking systems (ATS), Apply Connect. This tool is designed to help TA teams streamline the application, requisition, and evaluation processes to save time and effort in finding the best talent.

Recruiters can easily identify qualified applicants leveraging LinkedIn skills data and custom screening questions— all with the Apply Connect integration. In a time where many companies struggle with candidate conversion rates, this tool has been able to increase applicant volume by up to four times on some teams.
