While the coronavirus crisis is fatal for Shipping and delivery companies, Grocery stores and delivery services, Online learning companies, Remote meeting and communication companies, Childcare providers industries, it offers a sudden opportunity for certain other industries. Some companies are in need of additional workforce in order to support the growing need for their services. Offices are closed and we are all working from home – remotely. HR professionals and recruiters who want to survive this crisis have to adapt – and they have to do it quickly. Hiring a large number of candidates in a short period completely remotely won’t be possible without specialized recruitment software. The challenges recruiters face while screening resumes: The high volume of resumes received – up to 88% of them are unqualified – greatly increases time to fill. Recruiters face increased pressure to show quality of hire but lack tools to link their resume screening to post-hire metrics.
For high volume recruitment, generally all candidates that meet the minimum qualifications move forward to the interview process. For low volume recruitment, generally only the top few candidates that meet both the minimum and preferred qualifications receive an interview.
