Do you have so many applications flooding in for each position that you don't know how you can possibly get through all of them? Recruiters and HR Managers are becoming increasingly overwhelmed by the volume of resumes they receive, especially since the democratization of the application process allows job seekers to apply for hundreds of positions, very quickly.

Smaller companies simply don't have the resources to deal with a large number of applicants, and only 19% of hiring managers at small companies look at the majority of resumes they receive. Larger companies rely on their Applicant Tracking System to narrow down their candidate list, but the keyword matching it uses can be gamed by unqualified candidates and may allow great candidates to slip through the cracks.

So, how do you weed out unqualified candidates quickly, without losing your top candidates to faulty keyword matching algorithms? This presentation (and accompanying webinar) discuss some tips and tricks to narrow down your candidate pool faster, so you can:

-Reduce time to hire
-Hire the right candidates, the first time
-Keep top candidates from getting away
