Almost all applicant tracking solutions (ATS) offer a candidate based career portal. This allows candidates to browse through current positions at your company. One of the best components for attracting candidates back to your career portal is with the RSS feed. It is designed to allow visitors to receive information automatically about future positions as they become available.
This week’s tip is to try subscribing to the RSS feed. By doing so you will be able to:
1. Ensure the functionality is correctly working and in a timely manner.
2. Receive the same information as your potential candidates. This is important for checking accuracy of position information and being able to quickly relate to the format if a candidate contacts you with a question or issue.
The same tip applies if your career portal has the ability to email candidates when a new position opens. In the end, it is about attracting quality candidates back to your career portal while ensuring a smooth and positive experience.
Best of luck!!!
