Recruiting software should be easy-to-use, with intuitive, simple navigation that can also handle all of the different day to day undertakings of the recruiter. Here we’ve helped you to simplify this intimidating process by giving some advice as to how to go about choosing the perfect CRM software.

First and foremost, it is important to identify what your most valued features are within recruitment software.  Here are a few of the most valued features:

  • Requisition management and approval
  • Job posting/career portals
  • Pre-screening and assessment
  • Work-flow automation, communication, and interview management
  • Reporting and analytics

Consulting with the future users of this software within your office will be key to choosing software that works well for everyone.  Making the choice of software a collaborative effort, in terms of getting feedback from your team on what they value most, will hopefully point you in a direction towards software that is tailored to fit your company’s individual needs.

Which brings us to our second thing to look for when selecting a recruitment software.  Is this software able to grow with your company? Is it customizable to fit your growing and changing business needs?  Making sure you pick software that is along for the long haul is essential.  The last thing you want is to have to go through this entire process and reevaluate your software needs anytime soon.  Pick software that will grow with you.

Finally, it is important to evaluate logistics.  Is this software the best software at the best price?  Ask yourself if you are getting all the features you need for an affordable price.  If you are not getting the features you need from your current software, it may be time to reevaluate.

All in all, this process is time-consuming and tedious, but finding the right recruiting software is essential to the success of your business.  Taking the time to find what features your company and team values, if and how the software can grow with your company and finally if it is worth its’ monetary value, will guide you in selecting the best software for your recruitment firm.
