Applying for a Job the Modern HR Way

April 23, 2014 By: Steve Viarengo

Remember the days of walking into a business and seeing a sign that said ?We are hiring, see us for an application?? The fact that your loyal customers are people who know and enjoy your product or service and have the potential to be your best employees is not new and will likely never change. However, the process for getting those employees into your recruiting process has changed dramatically.

Is there anything less pleasant to a potential employee than asking for a paper application, to borrow a pen, and then sitting down on the spot to fill out multiple pages while trying to remember all of the relevant details critical to getting hired? And if that prospective employee walks out of your business with the application, what are the chances that she will come back with it filled out? You can direct the candidate to go to your website to apply online, but once she leaves your business and is no longer in the moment will she apply?

Now picture a Modern HR alternative. You see a sign that says ?We are hiring? followed by a QR Code. The interested candidate scans the QR Code with her mobile device and a mobile job application immediately pops up. She can apply for the job there on the spot by importing the data from an online profile such as Linked In and can also attach a resume from a cloud based document storage location such as Google Drive or Dropbox. The application then flows directly into your ATS and your potential best hire ever is now a candidate in your database. That is applying for a job the Modern HR way and a modern talent management solution can help you get there.
