Recruitment can often be a balancing act between daily admin tasks and investing time in finding your new candidates and clients. Take a look at our top 3 ways to improve recruiter productivity:
In pretty much every office, there’s always someone who boasts about how good they are at multitasking. But did you know your brain simply isn’t wired to handle doing multiple complex tasks at once. This often means you’ll find yourself spending more time on each task because you have to go back and correct mistakes.
Recruiters tend to be especially guilty of this, trying to manage multiple candidates at once while simultaneously searching for new recruits. Instead, focus on one candidate at a time, ensuring that all records are complete before you move on to the next.
While prioritizing your tasks is important, don’t let yourself get overwhelmed by a block of complex tasks. In between more challenging assignments take some time to do simpler, less engaging tasks like sorting your email or filling out expense reports. This will give your brain a chance to reset.
Give your inbox a break
Recruiters spend a significant amount of time checking their email. While that may seem productive, it can slow you down and lead to distraction. Consider pausing your inbox for certain periods of time so that you can focus on other tasks. Also consider creating additional folders within your inbox to make it easier to allow you to prioritize your important emails.
Stay focused with your use of social media
Any good modern recruiter will already have impeccable social media skills, but there’s always room for improvement. While social media platforms are a powerful driving force for recruitment, they can be easily mis-managed.
Whenever you’re using social media, be sure what you’re doing is primarily productive for finding and communicating with candidates. If you need a little help with managing different social media platforms there are apps to help you make your time spent online more efficient.
