BirdDogHR VP Operations Michelle Stedman

BirdDogHR’s VP of Operations, Michelle Stedman, recently contributed an article titled How to Hire the Right Person to The Business Woman Media about building a candidate profile and hiring the right person.

Recruiting new talent isn’t easy, too often employers get bombarded by a pile of resumes and sorting through them to find the ones that should be interviewed is no easy task. That’s where a candidate profile comes in. It’s a list of 4-6 traits that would be expected on an ideal candidate – it’s not that hard to write but it makes a world of difference when you’re shuffling through resumes.

Automation gears image

Gone are the days of sifting through documents and spending hours on organization. Filing cabinets and stacks of loose papers are out and the age of automation is here to stay. Here are the days of one click and you’re there. Here are the days of safer, faster and easier. Job seekers, employees and future retirees are looking for a modern organization that makes the employment experience an automated one.

Pre-Hire Automation

When job seekers apply to jobs, it is an expectation that the apply process is online and accessible from a mobile device. According to ERE Recruiting, over 50% of job seekers are using their mobile devices to search and apply for jobs. Don’t expect to attract great, long-lasting employees if your job postings aren’t accessible from a mobile device, because the perfect, long-lasting employee you want is applying to your competitor’s job posting from their tablet or phone.
