Goodbye talent shortage, hello active recruiting!

#Trends / 24.09.2018

The prevalent lack of talented specialists poses challenges for recruiters on a daily basis. It makes it even more difficult to find the right person for the job. Things are no different for Robert, an old-school recruiter. He has also noticed the lack of qualified applicants. This doesn’t come as a surprise; according to the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, the German labor market will lose 4 million wage earners by 2030. No wonder 95% of employers find it hard to fill positions. They also lose nearly €45 billion in sales every year because of positions that haven’t been filled.

Active recruiting made easy

It is the same for Robert. His applicant database is empty, and he is investing a lot of time in the recruiting process, which isn’t too successful at the moment. One day he discovered an applicant management system that solved his problem of finding applicants thanks to its integrated talent pool and active recruiting capability. He is now able to contact potential candidates who are not actively looking for work. Prescreen, an applicant tracking software, features a state-of-the-art level of active recruiting, and it makes the entire recruiting process easier for Robert thanks to direct access to XING TalentManager. The days of waiting for applications and not finding qualified applicants are over. Robert is taking advantage of active recruiting, so he finally has time for other things.

Prescreen: the applicant tracking software with candidates included

As a cloud-based applicant tracking software, Prescreen eliminates problems related to finding, organizing and communicating with the right applicants. By integrating XING TalentManager, you can manage 14 million potential candidates from the XING Talent Pool directly in the applicant tracking software and contact them. A single tool allows you to access the right profiles and contact information and to send invitations to applicants. By integrating active recruiting into your daily recruiting process, you save time. However, detailed reports also help you to optimize your own processes. This new function won Robert over completely – recruiting has never been easier!
