Eptiva, LLC, a provider of on-demand human resources and recruiting solutions, helps independent recruiters and search firms see dramatic improvements in their placement success rates. A new return-on-investment calculator shows how.
Eptiva’s Job Hunter Pro Virtual Candidate Coaching system reduces lost placements brought about by a job candidate’s poor presentation and interview skills. It takes job interview coaching to a new level by making it easy and accessible for all job candidates.
Sadly, even the smartest and most competent of job applicants can have poor interview skills. This is not surprising when you consider most people never receive any formal training in this area and that going through an interview is a fairly infrequent occurrence.
Job counselors and outplacement professionals know there is a direct correlation between good interview skills and placement success. As a result, they will spend many hours coaching their clients on the nuances of a successful interview.
Knowing this, it’s somewhat ironic that recruiters and placement professionals don’t spend more time coaching their job candidates. However, time constraints and other realities of their jobs make it difficult to do so. This is where virtual candidate coaching saves the day.
The concept is simple. Virtual candidate coaching provides on-demand job interview coaching via the Internet. All a recruiter has to do is provide their job candidates with an Internet link and login password. When the candidate logs in, they gain access to a wide range of resources and tools designed to help them excel during the job interview.
Job Hunter Pro covers it all, starting with how to make a great first impression, and ending with how to close out the interview on a positive note. It includes a job interview eBook, an interview-training program with over 500 practice questions, a mock interview, and a wide range of job interview preparation and execution tools.
User profiles enable delivering distinct content to job candidates based upon their login. The ability to provide recruiter- or company-specific content facilitates a highly personalized user experience. Plus, it’s available 24/7, when and where users need it.
From a return-on-investment (ROI) perspective, virtual candidate coaching is hard to beat. The Job Hunter Pro website has an ROI calculator where recruiters can input their own numbers and see for themselves.
The cost of virtual candidate coaching can be as low as a few dollars per recruiter per month, and independent recruiters without a website get a web presence in the process. It’s HR business process outsourcing at its best.
Companies and independent recruiters interested in learning more about virtual (on-demand) candidate coaching can access a fully functional demo site. While there, they can list themselves in a free recruiter directory. Links can be found at http://www.jobhunterpro.com.
