Latest Blog Posts: ATS or not to ATSAs hiring is becoming more analytical and data-driven, companies have found ways to incorporate technology to help hire and recruit more efficiently. ATS, also known as an applicant tracking system, has become one of the most widely adopted technological recruiting tools to date. In fact, according to data from Capterra: Best Ways to End a Cover Letter with ExamplesIncluding a cover letter with your resume is a great way to introduce yourself to the hiring manager, tell them why you’re the ideal fit for the role, and provide context about your personal situation. A strong cover letter will give you an advantage over other applicants. But it’s important that you structure it properly and write it powerfully so that it carries an impact. This article will discuss how to end a cover letter effectively so you catch the eye of a hiring manager and increase your odds of landing an interview. Read on to learn more. to Write a Follow-Up Email for a Job Application?Most times, we have to do more than submit a "sugar-coated" resume to land our dream jobs. Going the extra mile to follow up on your job application can increase your chances of employment. Additionally, it may even help you get confirmation sooner on whether you are seriously being considered for the job or not. to Address a Cover Letter With ExamplesIt’s easy to get caught up in focusing on your resume – how it looks, what it says, and whether it’s going to land you a job interview. Because there is a big focus on building the perfect resume, job searchers often overlook the importance of a high-quality cover letter. Your cover letter plays a huge role in your first impression. It humanizes you and provides context for your resume. to Conduct a Performance Review (With Examples)In a world where the smallest mistake can cost your business tens of thousands in lost revenue, your talent is key to keeping your edge on the market and driving growth. However, managing a workforce of any size can be a challenge. Employees come with their own particular skill set, ambitions and flaws. So, it can be difficult to uncover their individual drivers. Not to mention the challenges brought on by the hybrid and remote working models where in-person interactions have become few and far between. to Recruit Passive CandidatesLearning to recruit passive candidates is a different ballgame than recruiting active ones. While an active candidate is someone who is currently looking for a new job, a passive candidate tends to be the opposite. Passive candidates are either already working or not looking to work. So, instead of these candidates coming to you, you'll have to find them and reach out to them first. to Make a Job Offer More CompetitiveMoney alone makes it hard to attract and retain top-notch candidates, especially when you are competing with larger businesses and corporations in your industry. So, instead of focusing on money, figure out how to make a job offer more competitive when you can't offer more money.
