- The job market is extremely competitive and so, CVs have to be an enjoyable read, whereby recruiters and employers can extract the information they need quickly.
- While candidates might think that a complicated looking CV will earn them points with employers as it makes them look sophisticated and clever, it is not necessarily true.
- To achieve this successfully, candidates should consider dividing your CV up into sections that are identifiable and will make employers want to read more.
- Your CV is your way of showing potential employers who you are, what you do and how you can benefit them and so, you need to portray a professional image.
- This will enable candidates to communicate their values to readers quickly and efficiently, therefore, they should consider keeping their CV under two pages in length with minimal wasted space.
- Communicating with candidates in one-on-one, instant messaging conversations on platforms like Facebook Messenger and text messages, chatbots can ask candidates about their experience, answer common questions, and collect all kinds of info and inquiries for a human recruiter to review.
- A candidate only needs to talk to a chatbot once to establish a relationship says Luc of Job Pal, a custom chatbot builder.
- To get a deeper sense of how candidates might interact with chatbots, check out this candidate experience journey created byKellyOCG, a staffing consultancy client of Job Pal.
- Luc of Job Pal has found that candidates are eager to interact with their chatbots.
- While many chatbots run through a series of standard, scripted questions (in effect, serving as a form that candidates fill out via instant messaging), many users treat chatbots like real conversation partnersgoing off-script and asking the bots organic questions.
