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

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.

But did you ever stop and wonder what happened to those candidates who didn’t respond?

Is your careers site working for you, or against you? Find out with a free review from Clinch

Maura McElhone

Every great candidate experience starts with great content. A strong careers page or site is central to that content offering. As the preferred destination for candidates seeking information on a company and/or job, your careers site must be up to par in order to engage and convert the best talent.  

Of course, it can be difficult to make an objective assessment of how effective (or not) your own careers page is — every parent thinks their kid is the cutest, right?
