You can now see search through multiple fields using Boolean operators, any chosen filter or both. Easier, quicker filtering for your candidate data.

It’s now much quicker to add and remove filters on your candidate lists. Simply search for the attribute or field you want to filter by and easily see which filters are already applied. To learn more about this update see our docs or check out your new Search here.

With the acceleration of technology and the current sprightly job market, companies don’t have a problem with not having enough candidates. It’s having the right candidates.

While amassing a database of 500+ candidates after just a few months of recruiting sounds impressive, its immediate implication is that the more candidates you have, the harder it is to find them again.

With any luck, a search bar does exist in your system for storing candidates. 90% of the time it seems to not work unless you input the exact names of the candidates. The pain of spending hours wrestling with multiple search terms just to get “0 candidates found” in your database of hundreds or thousands of candidates can be agonizing.

This is where we come in. With Recruitee’s brand new Search feature, you will never get lost in your candidate database again. Every candidate can be found, as well as every CV and cover letter.

There are three ways you can hunt through your candidate database with Recruitee’s Search.

1-Search with filters

From evaluations to tags, every filter is designed to help you find the candidates most relevant to your search criteria. You can easily combine and benefit from more than 100 search options, making those candidates you need to find within reach, literally.

2-Search with Boolean operators

Boolean search is the most powerful addition to the Recruitee Search. Whether you are a beginner or a veteran, you can make use of the Boolean search within minutes.

Simply put, Boolean search makes use of five operators to connect your search terms in a meaningful way.

AND: All your search terms will appear in the search results

OR: At least one of your search terms will appear in the search results

NOT: Excluding certain search terms in your search results

( ) Parentheses: Combine multiple searches

“ ” Quotation marks: Searching for an exact search term

Imagine your search terms as Lego bricks and these Boolean operators as the interlocking mechanism. They hold the search terms together and produce the result you want.

From a short string:

“ruby on rails” AND “angular”

to a long string:

(“xHTML” AND “HTML5” AND “CSS” AND “jQuery” AND “WordPress”) AND “Python” AND (“git” OR “subversion” OR “mercurial” OR “LESS” OR “SASS” OR “ExpressionEngine”) (Source)

Boolean search gives you the power to dig up the candidates you need no matter how big your database is.

3-Search with filters and Boolean operators

Yes, you can! You can use both filters and Boolean operators at the same time in the Recruitee Search. When you opt for both, the search results will show candidates who fulfill the filters you selected AND the Boolean search you typed.

When you’ve got the ultimate search settings that you want to use again, you can save them as favorites with one click in Recruitee. If you need a team member to keep an eye on a specific search, you can also choose to share that search while saving with no extra hassle.

Don’t get bogged down by a messy database. Even if it’s like finding a needle in a haystack, Recruitee’s Search will help you surface the candidates you need in no time. Who knows, the right candidates for your new job openings might have been there all along.

Have fun recruiting!

Being able to automate tasks between Recruitee and other apps is the great wish of many Recruitee users. Today your wish comes true. We’re excited to launch our own Zapier integration to help you automate your recruiting tasks and improve your time-related metrics (i.e. time to hire, time to fill, and time to contact).

First off, if you wonder “what is Zapier,” imagine it as the duct tape of the online world. It combines apps and makes them work together. The best part: You don’t need coding knowledge to make it happen. Read it as: You don’t need to bother or coax any developers into doing you a favor. Despite is advanced ability, Zapier is simple and easy to use (just like duct tape). As long as the apps you want to use have integrations with Zapier, you can connect them within a few clicks.

Second, task automation is one of the ingredients of a happy and productive work life, especially for recruiters. Your time is too valuable to waste on simple, repetitive tasks. Who would enjoy sending your team a Slack message whenever a new candidate applies? Who would be fond of making an Asana task for every new applicant? With Zapier, you can make such tasks happen automatically by setting up automated workflows, known as ‘zaps’. Simply put, each zap = trigger(s) + action(s). You choose a data point as a trigger in one app and another data point as an action in other app(s). When a trigger happens, Zapier will complete the action for you. Sweet, right?

Here are some examples of what you can automate and save time by using the Recruitee-Zapier integration.

Recruitee-Asana

What gets automated: Every time a new candidate profile is created, Zapier will make a task (with a predefined template) in your Asana account.

Action: The candidate’s contact details are added to your MailChimp.

These are just a handful of hundreds of apps you can connect to Recruitee. You and your team, from recruiters to hiring managers, will definitely find an automation that will make your recruiting life easier and more pleasant. Set up your automation for tedious tasks now and spend time on what matters, like making those hiring decisions.

Quickly evaluate a candidate by asking the right questions

Now you can easily have a clear overview of your candidates. There is little room for bias if all evaluations are standardized, everyone sticks to the same structure, and every candidate is judged with the same measure. It’s another way to improve your hiring process, reduce the impact of confirmation bias and making sure every candidate is judged with the same measure.

The field of recruitment tech is constantly changing. After all, the most important element in growing any business is acquiring the very best talent.

As recruitment becomes increasingly internalized, data and automation have proven to be absolutely vital for successful hiring. As a result, we at Recruitee have decided to build some of the most advanced data analytics and reports, to help bring about change in the future of data-driven recruitment.

Perhaps your hiring process takes more time than it should. Or your main sources have more unqualified candidates than you first thought. Without proper data, you will never know. If you begin with zero data points, you will have zero starting points and end up with zero learning points.

Figuring out where to start is also a challenge in itself. From applicant conversion rate to time to hire, there may be more than 50 metrics that need to be constantly updated, tracked, and improved upon. Not many of us can afford to do just that day in, day out. Not many tools can satisfy the specific needs of your hiring team either; think about the wide range of metrics from operational KPIs (for recruiters) to more strategic KPIs (for hiring managers). That’s why we decided to build a brand new, state-of-the-art Reports feature for Recruitee.

There are two goals we want to achieve with this: 1) Centralizing all the recruitment metrics of your team, and 2) Catering fully to your team’s needs.

Recruiting metrics - Recruitee recruitment software - YouTube

1–Centralize all of your team’s recruitment metrics

Our first task was to find out what kind of metrics and KPIs most recruiting teams use. We rolled up our sleeves and talked to as many users from diverse teams as we could. Our research went beyond the metrics they track and uncovered the metrics they inherently need.

From recruiters, hiring managers, to executives, we got to know what they regard as the one metric that matters and what goals they’re trying to achieve with the data. From the various KPIs we got from recruiting teams, we recognized universal patterns spanning across four key categories: candidates, job openings, team members, and interviews.

With the first installment of the Recruitee Reports, we decided to focus on the core metrics regarding the first three key categories: candidates, job openings, and team members. Here are some typical questions you can answer at a glance using the Recruitee Reports:

• What are the min, max, and average time we need to hire candidates?

• Which source gives the best candidates?

• What is our careers site’s visitors vs. applicants (via our careers site) ratio?

• What are the bottlenecks in our hiring pipelines?

• Which recruiters are the most responsive to candidates?

• What time of the year do we have the most job openings?

And more than 15 different metrics you can track in real time. Since Recruitee registers all your team’s hiring activities as they happen, there will be no interval of time between the moment a data point occurs and the moment you can see it in the Recruitee Reports.

After figuring out the main recruitment metrics to measure, we moved on to the second task: making the right metrics accessible by the right team members. Depending on their role in Recruitee, a team member will see reports on the data they have access to.

In order to maximize the accessibility of all reports, we have designed them in a transparent and self-explanatory manner. This will ensure that every team member gains instant value from the recruitment metrics regardless of their experience in data analytics.

2–Cater fully to your team’s needs

Although we based the Recruitee Reports on the universal metrics, we knew that they would need to be as diverse as the teams using Recruitee. Every recruiting team should be able to gain insights and make decisions within the unique context of their company. So we commenced our third task: enabling teams to tweak each report the way they want.

Within each report, team members can apply filters to drill down as deep and compile as many granular data points as necessary.

Once they are satisfied with the customized report, they can save it for future reference. This is perfect for recruiters to track their own KPIs. Hiring managers can also choose to share specific customized reports whose KPIs the whole team needs to work on.

One of our final tasks was to make the Recruitee Reports work seamlessly with your team’s tooling ecosystem. If you want to get the recruitment data from Recruitee to feed into your analytics tools or data warehouses, you can export it as a .csv file and import it to the preferred destination with just one click.

By anonymizing the personal information of your candidates, we make sure that you do not have to worry about data privacy issues under the GDPR. If you are interested in learning more about our data security measures for the GDPR, have a look at this article.

Nowadays you need a proactive talent strategy and your whole team executing on it to get the best talent out there. You can’t do so in the dark or with guesswork. It’s as crucial as ever to collect relevant and reliable data to align your team’s hiring practices. With the Recruitee Reports, you can power a data-driven recruiting strategy, which in turn will result in a data-driven hiring process. We have built this feature to be one of the best tools for talent analytics out there, and we have enabled it for all Recruitee users to provide meaningful insights into their recruitment activities. If you are looking for a way to improve your recruitment process and join the future of hiring, start measuring your effort today.
