Marketplace Mashup: Candidates On-Demand

In this podcast…

In recruiting and HR departments, we’re always looking for the latest HR technology to drive efficiency and profitability. The step that takes the most time? Sourcing. Why? If you’re not a boolean black belt or a long-time recruiter, it’s not always so easy to go to the corners of the internet to find that purple squirrel and there’s no advanced degree in finding great talent online.

Inevitably, we then fall into the broken time-old tradition of posting and praying. We pay the advertising fees to share our job descriptions on the job boards and we’re left with hundreds, sometimes thousands, of resumes that may or may not be a good fit. It’s a broken methodology when you boil it down; here we are posting jobs to save time and the response costs the minutes we saved. Where are the candidates on-demand?

Here’s an idea: post your job to sourcers, let them scope out your top candidates and then start your interview process two steps ahead. That’s the idea behind Relode.

In this podcast, our hosts – Amy (Ala) Miller and Katrina Kibben – join Jen Warneld, Director of Quality and Training at Relode, to learn more about their technology (which she thought was so great,  she left her home office and working in sweatpants for it. Seriously.)

Why You Should Listen:

  • See why we think Relode could really work
  • The value of an on-demand candidate pipeline
  • Why post-and-pray is a broken strategy (and how Relode can fix it)
