Advertising Job Openings
Applicants can’t apply for job openings that they don’t know are available. An applicant tracking system often includes a branded careers page that becomes a part of the company’s website. In the hospitality industry, this careers page is often where candidates apply for open positions. An ATS can also post job openings on popular jobs boards to reach even more candidates. Social media is also increasingly used as a hiring platform. Many ATS software platforms also post job openings to social media.
Improved Candidate Experience
Top candidates can look for jobs with any company they like because they’re in such demand. It’s important for a company to make a good impression on the candidates it really wants to hire. An applicant tracking system can help improve candidates’ experience by streamlining communications between the hiring manager and the candidate. Some applicant tracking systems also offer candidate portals, where the candidate can check on their application status and more.
Reduced Hiring Time
In the hospitality industry, it’s important to fill vacant positions as quickly as possible. At the same time, hiring managers shouldn’t rush into hiring decisions. An applicant tracking system can help to reduce the time it takes to hire, however. This increased hiring speed can help hospitality companies fulfill their hiring needs for all types of positions much more quickly without sacrificing candidate quality.
Automated Resume Parsing
It’s essential for those working in the hospitality industry to meet the right qualifications for their positions. Hiring managers don’t have the time to sift through thousands of resumes looking for the right candidates. An applicant tracking system can instead automate that process. Hiring managers can select which qualifications they would like the system to search for and the ATS will look for appropriate candidates.
Once a company has found the right candidates, it’s time to hire and bring them onboard. Despite the name applicant tracking system, the ATS’ job doesn’t end with finding the right candidates. Most applicant tracking systems also include onboarding features. An ATS can help hiring managers to make sure that every step of the onboarding process is completed at the right time via helpful reminders and checklists. Much of the hiring paperwork can even be completed before a candidate’s first day.
