The Recruiter platform provides you with a ton of important data that can help you monitor and improve you recruiting efforts. You can track statistics such as the response rate and recruiter actions by leveraging the Reports feature.
[Voiceover] As you use Recruiter it may be valuable for you to analyze how successful your recruitment strategy is. Are you contacting the right people, how often you get responses, are there people in your recruiting team who are getting more responses than others? Fortunately, Recruiter keeps statistics of your activity so that you can get a picture of how well your strategy is working. Let's take a look at where you can access this data. I'm going to go up to the top and select Reports. And from here we have several different options. First I'll click on the top one which is Recruiter Usage.
Here I can see data about how the different seat holders on this contract have been using Recruiter. By default it shows me data for the past seven days, but on the left I can adjust this. So I can adjust for the timeline. I can also adjust for the specific recruiter I'm looking at. And right now by default it's showing me all of the recruiters. So here I can see information about unique daily log-ins. It tells me how many each of the users on this contract have logged in. I can see information about how many searches I've performed, how many profiles each user has viewed, InMails sent, status set, tags added, and more.
This can give you an idea of how effective your searches are. Say for instance you're viewing hundreds of profiles, but only contacting a few people. Then you might need to improve your search filters. Now, all the way down at the bottom of this page is the Usage Details table. This gives you great data about how you use Recruiter. Here you can see how many searches that you've performed compared to how many profiles you've viewed and how many InMail messages you've sent. I can see here how many of those messages have been accepted or declined.
The Acceptance Rate and Response Rate are very valuable statistics. If you have a very low Acceptance Rate or Response Rate then you might be contacting the wrong people. Or maybe you need to re-evaluate the actual text in your messages. You might consider rewriting your template so that it's more engaging and relevant and results in more responses. Now there are other sets of statistics in the reports menu that you might want to take a look at. I'll go up here to Reports again and let's take a look at Job Analytics. Now again, I don't have a lot of data in this account, but this data will grow as you use Recruiter.
If you post jobs through your Recruiter account you can review statistics on how many people view and apply to your job, which can also be very valuable. Here on this page I can see the summary, but if I go to Views by clicking on this link I can see a chart of how many people have viewed each job on any given day. Looking at tangible numbers of how many people are viewing and applying to your job over time can help you review and adjust your strategy. If one of your job postings is getting significantly lower views and clicks than others you might want to re-evaluate that posting.
If you see a significant drop off in views and application numbers you might choose to close that job, review the current candidates, and leverage the open job slots for a different posting. But if a job still gets a lot of views and applications, it might be a good idea to leave it posted for a while longer. So, don't just send messages and post jobs and hope that the right candidates come to you. Check your reports and statistics inside of Recruiter and get an idea of what strategies are working for you, which give you better response ratios, or more job posting views.
Let the statistics help you as you develop and refine your recruitment strategy.
