Capture and better manage more leads with Clinch kiosk mode for recruiting events

Maura McElhone

How effectively are you handling lead capture at events?

When your company has a presence at a recruiting or careers fair, how do you keep track of the hundreds, if not thousands of candidates you meet?

More importantly, how easy is it for you, using your current processes, to follow up with those candidates and nurture the relationships that will ultimately lead to applications?

Clinch’s “kiosk mode” allows users to capture details for multiple candidates via one landing page, on a single device. This feature is perfect for recruitment events and career fairs, enabling the fast and secure capture of candidate information on your company laptop or tablet.

Top 4 Ways to Attract, Identify, and Engage College Students

Paddy O'Grady

In the ‘War for Talent,’ your business faces stiff competition to find interns/graduates with data analysis, programming, and foreign languages to name but a few of the most sought after skills. To improve the effectiveness of your talent acquisition strategy, your relationship with these candidates should begin before they start looking for a job. In order to establish yours as an employer of choice with this target group, you should be engaging with passive prospects while they are still in college. By giving your brand visibility early on in the candidate journey and cultivating that relationship, you ensure that when the time comes for top talent to make an employment decision, your organization is front and center in their minds.

The best talent engagement is the simplest...really!

KC Donovan

We’re just about at the tipping point where the majority of our adult working population will be under the age of 35.

Let that sink in for a second. 

These are people who grew up post Internet, where surfing the web was akin to changing a TV channel. They saw their parents spend a lifetime climbing the career ladder where either a promotion or a pink slip waited regardless of ability — and they want no part of that. A common thread for them is their negative view of the concept of “career.”

The art and science of nurture: Bill Boorman white paper for Clinch

Bill Boorman

I think we are all agreed that the lines between recruiting —largely viewed as a sales activity— and marketing —traditionally seen as an activity conducted by someone else— have become blurred. 

Outside of the related hype, however, and the overuse of the tagline, "recruitment is marketing," the real question is, “what does this blurring of lines really mean, and what does it look like day-to-day?”

What we must acknowledge is that, while already overloaded recruiters have been asked to don new marketing hats and take on extra responsibilities for things like content creation, engagement and candidate experience, there has been no significant let-up in the demand from hiring managers and the chiefs of the business for hiring now and filling seats.
