With millions of qualified candidates creating resumes on Indeed every month, many of the world’s leading organizations turn to Indeed Resume to find the right candidates by searching for the exact skills and expertise their organization needs.
Indeed Resume provides a simple way for employers to find talent -- just as people use Indeed to search for jobs, recruiters and hiring managers use Indeed Resume to search for, and connect with, prospective hires. The large pool of candidates using Indeed Resume enables recruiters to get targeted results in an instant.
Talent acquisition professionals can search using one or two fields -- they also have the option to drill down and create specific searches based on a candidate’s experience and education. For instance, the advanced search feature makes it easy to find someone as specific as a “Bilingual Engineer” with 3-5 years of experience in New York. Recruiters can sign up to receive free email alerts, and get a summary of newly added and recently updated resumes which match their search query.
Indeed Resume makes it simple to search for quality candidates, and here are three tips to contact candidates successfully.
1. Personalize your message
Recruiters can increase the chances of a candidate responding to their message by referencing the job seeker’s skills and experience, and clearly explaining how they are the right match for the role. Personalizing a message takes more time, but it demonstrates the recruiter has spent time researching the candidate and leads to more responses from quality job seekers.
2. Explain the opportunity
When reaching out to candidates on Indeed Resume, give as much detail as possible about the role, the benefits offered and life at the company. Hiring managers should try to anticipate a candidate’s questions by including answers to common queries. This message is a chance to make a great first impression that will attract candidates to your opportunity.
3. Make yourself available
Organizations should always consider what’s best for the job seeker, which means providing enough information so a candidate understands the role and how to proceed with the application process. Recruiters should be open and available, sharing their name, the company they are recruiting for, and a link to the job posting. By providing these details, recruiters can humanize the process and engage quality candidates.
