Hirextra initiative to advance the career of job seekers during the COVID-19 pandemic

With the never-ending pandemic situation the COVID 19 has brought to this world, enterprises are forced to run from remote working circumstances. But the truth be told, many companies are still short of employees and they badly want to kick off their recruitment processes to get on with work on full force.

1. What is remote hiring?

When the whole interview happens without the candidate and recruiter having to meet face to face and discuss the prospects with the help of gadgets, it is termed as remote hiring. Fortunately, we are well equipped with technical aspects to make this happen with the least amount of resources.

2. Being a recruiter, what should I follow to establish remote hiring in our team?

We will see a few simple measures that you can practice to get started with remote hiring.

3. Train your hiring team

Working with virtual tools can be overwhelming at first. Hence before initiating the operation, ensure that every member of the hiring team is well trained on how to operate the virtual assistance tools.

The transition from in-person to virtual mode may not be smooth. But upon consistent effort, we can smoothen the course of action

4. Analyze and restructure the interview process

It is not possible to handle the interview in the same way as to how it happened before. Have a meeting with the hiring manager and streamline the interview process based on available sources. Formulate efficient ways to evaluate the candidates through remote hiring and start working on implementing them.

5. Widen your candidate search circle

It is not possible to handle the interview in the same way as to how it happened before. Have a meeting with the hiring manager and streamline the interview process based on available sources. Formulate efficient ways to evaluate the candidates through remote hiring and start working on implementing them.

You can also use unconventional ways to spread the job vacancy and social media plays a huge role here.

6. High-quality video and audio calls

Won’t that be irritating when video or voice gets stuck due to technical issues or poor connectivity? It is the need of the hour to maintain excellent internet connectivity and update the tools so that they don’t breakdown.

Check the microphone and camera functioning before the commencement of the interview. Also, send a basic set of instructions to candidates for a seamless interview process.

7. Flawless and effectual email communication

Whether it is inside the team or to the prospective candidates, maintain precise and quality email content, and leave no room for further explanations overcall.

Also, it is crucial to reply to them within a short span of time so that communication is clear and updated.

8. Clear and concise goals and progress tracking

Working as a team in a remote environment is not a child’s play. Everyone from the recruitment team should adhere to the basic ground rules and work efficiently to achieve this together. There should be a common platform where they can update their everyday status for quick tracking purposes.

Communication through phone and emails has to take place at regular intervals and strong support should be offered to everyone by each other

9. Utilizing AI principles

There are many AI-based tools that simplify and optimize the recruitment process. Its high time that companies grasp the need for automation in this cumbersome, clumsy sector. Utilizing machine learning and predictive analysis tools can change the whole hiring world upside down.
