Top 5 Apps for Recruiting in HR
The proliferation of mobile apps has seemingly affected and improved every facet of life. Mobile apps have even simplified the responsibilities of human resource (HR) recruiters. Specifically, mobile apps have effectively improved their productivity, connected recruiters with more diverse prospects, and offered video interviewing to HR recruiting professionals. The following list is comprised of the top 5 apps that are used for recruiting by HR professionals.
HireVue is the top HR recruiting app on this list because it was designed specifically HR professionals. This outstanding app offers a new and improved way to conduct video interviews without having to bear the expense of pricey video equipment.
HR recruiters simply email prospects a link with questions. The candidate is then prompted to record their responses through their smartphone camera or webcam. Then the HR recruiter can watch the video, share it with teammates, and even rate the interview for later comparison.
Turboscan is a powerful production app that morphs an iPhone into an impressive document scanner. This easy-to-use app allows users to create PDF files by taking pictures or with existing images on the camera roll. It also allows users to resize images, add second pages to PDF files, and send the files in a variety of ways.
This app allows HR recruiters to practically mobilize their office. With the ability to scan new hire documents, make digital images for filing, and scan business trip receipts, this app allows HR recruiters to do more from everywhere.
Sonar is an amazing social discovery app that lets you know how you are connected with the people that are close to you. Instead of focusing on where others are located, this app works to solve the problem of how you connect with the people that you can visibly see are in the room. Sonar offers assistance with situations where you simply cannot remember how you know a person. This app pulls data from several social networks, explains your connection to those around you, and then offers you a one-click option to contact them.
This app was obviously designed with human resource recruiters in mind. HR recruiters can simply open the app to discover who is in the room and how they are connected. Even more impressively, Sonar gives recruiters the social proof to make a warm approach and begin the recruiting process.
Glancee is one of the first apps to converge location, interest graphs, and social networks into an attractive interface. By using interest graphs from Facebook, you can actually be matched with others who have similar interests that are in your geographic location. “Favoriting” other members will allow you to create a connection and send messages in real time chat.
For HR recruiting, this app is an amazing networking tool. If you simply use the same terminology that prospects use on social networks, you can match and potentially connect with countless qualified and compatible individuals.
Dragon Mobile Apps
Dragon Mobile Apps use the world-renowned Dragon NaturallySpeaking software to deliver uncanny productivity with your smartphone. This app allows the use of voice commands to e-mail, text, or even search the mobile device. The dictation provided through the Dragon software is extremely proficient and provided through an easy-to-use interface.
This app will make any HR recruiter’s life significantly easier. With the ability to simply record the recap of any meeting, phone interview, and every other type of HR correspondence, recruiters need nothing more than their voice. Recruiters can even use this app to write blog postings about available jobs.
