Hire by Google, a new recruiting app that integrates with G Suite has now added a new capability in beta that makes recruiting easier with “candidate discovery.”
Candidate discovery, a new intuitive search feature that saves recruiters time as the can now quickly create a short list of past candidates who are a fit for new positions. Recruiters can now easily identify and re-engage known candidates instead of spending time trying to find new ones.
Google notes, that existing Hire customers testing this feature through the Trusted Tester program have found it useful in filling jobs faster.
Listed below are some features this new candidate discovery functionality offers to recruiters and hiring managers:
Find Qualified Candidates immediately upon Opening a Job
The first step in filling a role should be checking who you already know that fits the job criteria. Candidate discovery creates a prioritized list of past candidates based on how their profile matches to the title, job description and location.
Use Search Capability that Understands What they are Looking for
Candidate discovery takes search phrase, like “sales manager Bay Area” and immediately understands the skills and experiences relevant to that job title, as well as which cities are part of Bay Area. That means the search results will include candidates with sales management skills even if their past job titles are not an exact keyword match.
Easily Search by Previous interactions with Candidates
Using Hire recruiters can search and filter candidates on the previous interactions, such as type of interview feedback or whether you extended them an offer before. Candidates with positive feedback will rank higher in search results than those without, and candidates who received an offer in the past but declined will rank higher than those who were previously rejected.
The new candidate discovery capability is available in beta to all Hire by Google customers.
