‘Invite to Apply’: What It Is and Why It’s A Game Changer
Employers who use ‘Invite to Apply’ receive over 2.5 times more job applications than those who don’t.
According to ZipRecruiter, ‘Invite to Apply’ acts as a personal recruiter for jobseekers and businesses. It enables “finding candidates who are a strong fit for the business’s open roles and presents them to the hiring managers.”
In addition, this feature is also essential due to a high number of passive candidates – this is corroborated by research by LinkedIn which stated that 70% of job candidates are passive. Thus, there is a need to maximize this segment efficiently, one of which is through ‘Invite to Apply’.
How it works
Gone are the days of post-and-pray recruitment.
‘Invite to Apply’ feature enables recruiters to quickly find the right candidates with suitable qualifications before the candidates apply to the roles themselves.
It then presents these job seekers to the employers. After the hiring managers consider the candidates’ educational qualifications, work experience, certifications, and more, they can invite their chosen candidates to apply.
Why it’s a game-changer
Candidates who were invited to apply are three times more likely to get hired.
In the current COVID-19 pandemic where many jobs were lost, ‘Invite to Apply’ also sends a crucial signal to job seekers that their skills and talents are needed in the continuously-changing labor market.
