The Class of 2014 will include more than 1.5 million graduates with bachelor’s degrees. Companies may experience hundreds of applications flooding in from qualified candidates competing for open positions; so, what can you do to determine who will be a perfect fit for your organization?
Various technology is readily available for companies to take advantage of in order to effectively and efficiently hire the best people:
- 6 in 10 HR managers are using video interviews to screen candidates
- 94% of recruiters and staffing pros utilize social media for communicating with candidates
