Thanks to Echobot’s platform, I can cut the time spent on recruitment processes in half!”

Abstract

If you said that Echobot’s software pushes sales and marketing teams to a new level, you’d be absolutely right. But our tools can give other departments a boost too!

Yasemin Gündüz from our recruiting team gave us some exclusive insights into how she uses our platform for her active sourcing processes. Finding the right candidate for the job has proven to be more effective for her with AI.

The Challenge: The Tendious Task of Finding New Talent

Finding the right person for a role isn’t always easy. It’s often quite the opposite. Recruiting teams across all branches can confirm that the current challenge of finding qualified talent isn’t getting any easier.

Even here at Echobot, we’ve been actively searching for the right fit for our teams.

Did you know…?
…that active sourcing (or active recruitment as it’s also known) consists of two phases? Recruiting has to identify and contact their ideal candidate and use various recruitment methods such as over a business network like LinkedIn. This turns the recruiter into a headhunter so they can find the best candidate for the role.

Usually, our recruiters turn to business platforms like LinkedIn or Xing to source talent. However, using external platforms presents a new set of challenges: the tedious switching between platforms and always having to keep eye on your searches.

Another issue that business platforms present is that the talent that might be a perfect fit, aren’t even on them. That means our recruiting team is missing out on skilled talent.

The Solution: Speeding up Recruiting Processes with Echobot

We already have customers in the headhunting and human resource branches who use our platform for their talent searches. So, it was an obvious choice for us to also turn to our own platform for our own recruiting needs.

There are a lot of advantages to using Echobot for our talent acquisition processes. For example, you can set filters to fit your criteria to pinpoint the kind of candidate you’re looking for. Not only that, but our tools are cross-platform and cross-source.

That means that even if your ideal candidate doesn’t have a profile on a business platform, you can still find them because our crawlers scan “About Us” pages or current company news.

Great right? Let’s take a closer look at a search query that Yasemin carried out for a role in Marketing:

Online Marketing Manager Search

Example search for an online marketing manager and similar roles in Echobot

With the help of our Sales Intelligence Platform, you can combine several roles to get a large pool, but still a very specific set of results.

Did you know that…
…Echobot will suggest similar job titles so that way, you won’t have to perform another search?

The results are diverse and can be filtered down even further with hierarchy, location and much more.

Query: Role Description, Location, and Hierarchy

Echobot will now display everyone in the database that matches your search criteria. In our case, Yasemin wanted to find people who live no further than 30km from Karlsruhe and who were not in upper management.

Contact Search Target

The best part is that recruiting will also be able to see other publicly available information such as telephone numbers, email addresses, or social media accounts! Great for active sourcing.

Success from within!
The example above is actually part of Yasemin’s success story as a recruiter. Thanks to the platform and being able to select her exact criteria, she was able to find a fit for one of our open positions. Yay!

Outcome: Turning Good Recruiting Processes into Great Recruiting Processes

As you saw in the examples: Echobot isn’t just a win for sales and marketing anymore! You now know how to streamline your recruiting processes with our platform and can do away with combing through prospects on LinkedIn or Xing.

Of course, we asked our recruiting team what the secret to successful recruiting in general is. Yasemin had her answer at the ready:

“Even if someone doesn’t seem like the perfect fit at first glance, it pays to dig a little deeper and ask someone directly if they might be interested in the job. We often end up having interesting exchanges which lead to us discovering that they are a great fit for the role!”
