Streamline the application process
Cover letters, nice résumé paper and large submission packets are a thing of the past. The environment thanks us for that.
But in many companies, they have been replaced with cumbersome web forms. These exercises in data entry force a candidate to rehash their entire résumé in a new format in order to be ingested into your specific screening application.
When faced with a dozen pages asking for entry of personal data and experience that are literally a duplicate of the Word file they already prepared, some candidates simply give up.
Even if it’s harder for your process, you need to develop a way accept an email and a Word or PDF file from interested applicants. A simple way to apply via existing job boards is also a popular method.
