The process which comes out of the box doesn't fit my companies hiring process. We need to customize the process and add additional stages to the process.
I created an applicant and went through the onboarding process, then went back to the home screen and wanted to search for that individual again. The search only searches jobs. If you're managing a high volume of individuals over time you probably want to search for them, perhaps.
I didn't see there was an option to hire for multiple openings of the same role on the same active job. It would be extremely valuable to a hiring manager and recruiter to have 1 active job to manage when there are multiple openings of the same role. This would also give more visibility to track status of hiring for multiple roles. As a hire is made, the active job order will show one less opening so a recruiter and hiring manager would always know how # of openings remaining.
When creating a job, it appears it automatically defaults to the hiring manager as the person creating the job. In many companies, job openings while approved by a hiring manager, are entered by a recruiter. It would be valuable if a recruiter could also initiate the creating of an active job and invite the hiring manager to engage on the job order. There could also be some feature added to create an approval process for the hiring manager to approve the active job.
It would be helpful if the last name of the applicant appeared on the dashboard to be able to easily filter who the candidates are in the process especially when there are multiple candidates with the same first name.
It's often distracts users in the UK if they they US-centric terms. A stronger term for 'Resume' under the en-GB language preference would be CV:
In any stage in the process I want to view and compare applcations side by side. Assume we interviewed 4 candidates and collected feedback. Now I want to see these 4 candiates side by side to easily compare the interview feedback and make my hire/nohire decision.
A lot of customers would like to see a way to make maximum use out of LinkedIN takeover to match based on skill profile of the job posting. This matching engine should be using intelligence like Textkernel to be able to deal with unstructured data. The resulting people should be easily selectable and invitable from Attract. This is now usually a tedious task, and would still be without this functionality. If Microsoft would really want to provide a 'killer' recruitment app, they would definitely add more intelligence to LinkedIN Recruiter integration. And if I may say so, I think this will have a tremendous business case.
Would be good, if system shortlist Candidates based on different parameters using Azure machine learing techninques.
Thought: Maximize the real estate on the page around “productivity”. For instance the blue section at the top looks cool but just takes up space. One piece of feedback on the 2 primary systems recruiters at MS currently have is there is wasted real estate. We would rather be able to see more things like; resumes, lists of jobs, other important or useful items to each user. I would prefer to be able to see more info, verses having to scroll down, over, or worst case keep clicking deeper to get to the important, usable data or information I need.
