Building a team is a balance of priorities, personality and lots of paperwork! Use Slack to streamline recruitment plans, progress and decisions by keeping your whole search committee on task and in the loop.
Why use Slack for recruitment?
Gather all recruitment info in one searchable place.
Track candidates as they progress through the interview process.
Keep turnaround and feedback loops tight by using dedicated channels.
Create a #recruitment-job-listings channel to share listings with recruiters. Invite your recruitment team and any HR staff, finance staff or executives involved in the process.
Use a system ofemoji reactions to keep recruitment moving forward. React with eyes 👀 to let others know you’re reviewing a listing, then add a tick ✅ when it’s ready to publish.
When you’re ready to post an opening, you can push listings from Slack to external job boards with apps like Greenhouse or Hired.
Third-party app Teamtailor can pull job applications into Slack as they’re submitted. Create a #applications-[job title] channel to view potential employees as they roll in.
Anyone in the channel can react to and comment on candidates, which means you can quickly decide who to move forward with.
Track candidate progress
Add a private interview-[candidate name] channel for each person you’re considering. This is where you can pin the candidate’s CV, schedule the on-site meeting and even debrief post-interview. Just make sure that the channel is private to protect candidate privacy!
You can create a public #new-starter-approvals channel to let the whole team know when a candidate becomes a new member of the team.
Tip: When you fill an opening, archive the related #applications,#interview and#offer channels to keep Slack organised.
Coordinate the new employee induction process
When they accept their job offer (🎉), HR can invite new employees to a private new-employees-[date] channel so they can begin onboarding.
With Hello Talent, you can organise candidates into talent pools to better assess who should be considered for what role. Share these groups with your search team and receive updates in Slack whenever a change is made to your pool.
Connect Slack with Recruitee and get real-time updates on the recruitment pipeline. Track candidates’ status and feed notes into a predetermined channel.
