The hiring process can seem labor-intensive from the recruiting – and applicant – perspective. There is so much to process from creating the job application to finally filling the role. Candidates are expecting more from us, and the great thing is that we finally have technology that can help us live up to their expectations.
Early in my career, I had the good fortune to work as a financial analyst for a Fortune 50 company. During a meeting where the president of a $2 billion group was presenting his business plan for the next year, he was lambasted by the corporate CEO with the following:

We’ve been hearing a lot about the concept of future-proofing your business like it’s something entirely new. In reality, wise companies have been future-proofing all along. Regardless of its roots, future proofing—which we’ll simply define as the ability to remain relevant among your competitors—is critical to the long-term success of any organization. While there’s lots of reading out there surrounding corporate-wide future-proofing strategies, our focus is as always on the HR side of things.
One of the greatest barriers to opting for recruiting automation is fear that recruiters will end up being replaced. Not to mention that automation could cost an arm and a leg.
But nothing could be further from the truth! Recruiting software is one aspect of HR tech that is tried and tested, and continuously improving. Recruiting automation systems are user-friendly, and recruiters can easily be upskilled. Plus, it’s accessed from a SaaS platform.

Recruitment is an ever-changing landscape. You may think you have the best recruitment process in place but guess what you may be wrong. There is a big disparity in perception between how you view your recruitment practice versus what your candidates think.

Increasing demand for talent creates intense pressure on staffing companies to constantly look for better ways to hire. Staffing leaders agree that the most challenging part is identifying the right candidate from a large pool of candidates as quickly as possible. Many staffing companies are currently doing this and other mundane tasks manually.
Thanks to new technologies that prove effective in streamlining some of the complex and repetitive recruiting efforts, automation helps recruiters become more efficient and increase the speed-to-hire.
We recently caught up with Jay Curry of TalentRobot to ask him what his favorite HRTech tools are and why. Jay is an experienced recruiting and HR leader who’s spent a lot of time in house, and recently launched his own business where he’s gotten to see the insides of many different companies.
We thought it’d be interesting to get his insights on the tools he uses on a day to day basis. Some of these we’ve heard of, and we’re excited to say that some are new to us.
As a busy HR professional, think about all the technology you use every day that was unfathomable not so long ago.
You post jobs online; track and analyze candidates with AI; measure the pulse of your organization; provide real-time feedback to employees – all in a bid to be more productive, strategic and stay ahead of the huge demands on your shoulders.
