As with many other areas of corporate governance, technology has provided executives with the tools that can make recruiting a much easier process. Today’s technology can help collect and sort applications, offer communication tools to ensure recruiters have a safe place to talk to their prospects, and many of them even offer contract services that can expedite onboarding.
With so many options, however, not everyone is necessarily familiar with these recruiting tools. Below, 11 members of the Young Entrepreneur Council discuss the most valuable software and solutions they use in their recruiting processes and why these tools help bring the right talent into their company.

1. An applicant tracking system
An applicant tracking system (ATS) is a recruiting solution that can vastly improve the hiring process for your company. An applicant tracking system processes applicants from job vacancies, processes resumes and tracks interviews for an all-in-one solution so you can select the best applicant for your company. – Stephanie Wells, impressive shapes
We use BambooHR because it has a platform that can be used to manage different stages of the hiring process. It’s also a great HR management tool with an easy-to-use interface. We can go through different processes seamlessly, e.g. B. Create and approve job postings, collect applications and carry out the onboarding process from the same place. – Syed Balkhi, WP beginner
I would indeed recommend it. The online tests and the ability to filter applicants are perfect for us. Plus, you can chat instantly and, depending on your location and other options, have a better chance of being seen by applicants. – Daisy Jing, banish
4. LinkedIn Recruiter
I like to use LinkedIn. With LinkedIn alone, I can find the mutual contacts, educational information, work experience and recommendations of the potential employee. The LinkedIn Recruiter feature is especially helpful when I dig deeper into their background and also look for recommendations. You can also automate parts of the hiring process to narrow down your applicants. – John Rampton, calendar
5. Recruiter box
Recruiterbox is a web-based recruiting software solution that small and medium-sized businesses can use to manage their processes. It contains the tools you need to automate the hiring process and select qualified candidates for your company. – Jared Atchison, WPForms
I’m a fan of SignalHire, a social profile aggregator that collects public data from applicants across social media, GitHub, and other professional websites. When looking for a candidate, all publicly available data, including education level and work experience, is displayed and readily available from any device. – Tyler Gallagher, Regal Assets
7. Spark Hire
Long before the pandemic, our company used Spark Hire to conduct remote video interviews. This software allowed us to interview candidates from all over the country, but it still felt like we were gaining the traditional interviewing experience. That way we were able to find the perfect solution for our company and our new attitude continues to be an essential asset to our business. – Bryce Welker, CPA examiner
Workable works well for us. Navigation is easy and incredibly effective thanks to all of the third-party integrations. The ability to integrate it with Google Workspace so that all emails and events work seamlessly with the platform makes it a breeze. Our recruiters love it, and so do our hiring managers. – Myles Hunter, TutorMe
9th working day
The working day is great as it comes in handy in terms of scaling. As your business grows it will definitely help you stand out from the competition. In addition, it has an a la carte feature that allows you to purchase only the services your company needs for recruiting. – Andrew Schrage, Money Crashers Personal Finance
I’ve used ZipRecruiter in the past to hire new team members, and those team members are still with our company today. I found it easy to create a new list, reach qualified candidates, and sort applications with their easy-to-use interface. – John Brackett, Smash Balloon LLC
11. Zoho Recruit
One software or online program that we found particularly useful is Zoho Recruit. This is an excellent program to aid with the online recruitment system and assist employees with human talents in managing resumes, candidates, clients, and client contracts. – Kevin Leyes, Leyes Media & VVS, from Leyes Empire
