Attracting a large pool of applicants for a particular job listing is a great start. As a recruiter, you have the opportunity to meet with many talented individuals to ensure the candidate you end up selecting is the best fit for the job. However, this also means having to repeat the screening process, over and over again.

High-volume recruiting may be overwhelming, stressful, and mundane. Reviewing thousands of resumes and waiting on interview confirmations can be discouraging, especially when you’re on the search for top candidates to fill your open roles. This hurdle is even more so daunting when you’re in the midst of a pandemic, making in-person interviews impossible.
