When it comes to applicant tracking systems, it’s things like features and user experience that matter most in my opinion. This includes the user experience as a candidate which makes sense. We want job candidates to find the application process easy and intuitive. Equally important but often overlooked is the recruiter and hiring manager experience. We want everyone involved in the hiring funnel and process to take advantage of the HR technologies we invest in. We want to encourage them to leave feedback, gather candidate information, and share their point of view making the hiring process truly a collaborative and interactive one.
JazzHR does it all. Their interface is easy to navigate, customizable, and offers great features and integrations that make the hiring process flow for everyone involved including the candidate, hiring manager, and recruiter alike.
Easy Access Hiring Dashboard with Customizable Features Including Text Messaging
One of my favorite features is the job dashboard which offers easy filtering by candidate stages. From the dashboard, you can look at the bigger picture of the candidate pool by job opening or dive into more granular and access candidate profiles. The ability to easily toggle between profiles, individual job openings, and bigger picture candidate information offers recruiting leaders quick access to important hiring data.
One of my favorite features within their candidate profiles is their new texting feature which is built in and is powered through a Chrome extension as well as mobile app. This allows you to stay engaged with your top candidate prospects even when you are on the go. In such a competitive market, especially for small to medium sized businesses, looking to streamline the recruiting process with quick messages even job offers by text. These small details make a difference and provide a competitive advantage. Even more important, text details and the data are easily accessible in a single place while also protecting your recruiters personal cell phone numbers and details.
Calendar Integration That Hits a Home Run for Recruiters and Job Seekers Alike
Interview scheduling is no longer a chore. JazzHR integrates directly with my favorite calendar scheduling tool, Calendly. This expanded features allows again for quick engagement. Calendly works within the JazzHR platform allowing for the recruiting coordinator to quickly view available dates and times for hiring managers and other interviews to meet. Additionally, users can also reserve meeting rooms within the technology. No more running around minutes before an interview searching last minute for an interview or meeting room.
Group scheduling sessions allow you to select a location, meeting room, or conference room quickly and easily. Even better, JazzHR allows you the ability to add specific interview guides for those interviewing candidates to use allowing for a more consistent and efficient hiring experience for everyone involved.
The candidate experience isn’t just about seamless interviewing and scheduling. It really starts even before the apply. At the heart of the candidate experience is the career site. JazzHR’s career pages are mobile optimized for their clients offering candidates a mobile experience perfect for any mobile device or tablet. Small details like a responsive career site layout can make a huge difference in your candidate funnel.
Increasingly important when it comes to the candidate experience is the importance of source of hire and reporting. JazzHR offers custom source code tracking which is essential for the modern recruiting team who is data driven and focused on hiring strategies and sources that produce the best results.
JazzHR’s career site offering provides widget options for easy career site customization using html coding. They also offer great search engine optimization (SEO) features for job postings to increase the searchability of job postings from job boards, search engines, and job aggregators. These small details can really give you a competitive edge especially as Google expands its focus on job posting search results with Google for Jobs.
JazzHR offers so many features, details, and customization that support the entire recruiting process end to end. Their painstaking detail to supporting an organization’s recruiting process has me extremely impressed with how JazzHR can elevate your recruiting and hiring efforts.
