How POD brings structure and organization to campus recruitment

A successful campus recruitment drive requires a good strategy, proper structure and organisation to get the desired results. It involves a lot of internal processes before the HR finally heads out to visit the campuses and hire candidates from them. Having a proper plan chalked out beforehand reduces the last-minute confusions and allows the HR to focus completely on evaluating the candidates for their skills and shortlisting the best ones. Today, with the help of technology such as artificial intelligence and machine language incorporated in many recruitment tools, the process of hiring candidates from campuses has become a more streamlined and organised process. The hiring team doesn’t have to follow the traditional method of managing all the tasks manually and can instead rely on automation tools that not only reduce the manual work but also intelligently help them to identify and hire the best candidates for the job.

How Pod.ai can help you conduct a campus recruitment drive?

Pod.ai helps to tackle this situation with ease as it provides both custom and standard assessments that can be used in the recruitment process to select the good candidates who can be further evaluated in the interview rounds. This tool also helps the HR to come up with the right interview questions that they should ask the students to shortlist the best ones among them and hire the most suitable candidates in the firm.
  7. Conduct drives on behalf of the company: Pod.ai manages each and every step of the recruitment process on its own without much manual work from the HR team. From collecting information about the colleges and students to communicating the individual candidate scores to other members in the recruitment team, Pod.ai does it all on its own with the help of its team and intelligent software which functions using the AI and ML technology. This way, Pod.ai has the ability to conduct the entire drive on behalf of the company.

The data-driven tool collects all the relevant candidate information and screens those who match the desired skill sets required by the company. It suggests the right colleges and also mentions the right time to visit them. It provides the feature of creating custom or standard assessment tests and stores the scores of each student, making it accessible to interviewers who evaluate the shortlisted candidates for other skills. Overall, the tool and team guide the HR from the initial searching process until the rolling out of the job offers and onboarding the shortlisted candidates into the team.
