From Recruiter - August 19, 2017

1. AngelList

When we put out the call to our network for suggestions for this list, AngelList got a lot of support, with more respondents citing this website than any other tool.

Wondering why? Heres what Arya Ghavami, founder and CEO of Focus: Map of Your World, had to say: Without a doubt, the single most underrated hiring tool is AngelList. AngelList uses an applicant tracking system called Track that provides an all-in-one searching, recruiting, interviewing, and hiring platform. Its incredibly easy to use, far more focused and customizable than LinkedIn, and even provides a better list of candidates across job types.

2. We Work Remotely

We Work Remotely is a board that specializes in remote work opportunities. As remote work options gain popularity, We Work Remotely and job boards of its ilk will become more and more valuable to employers.

Ive had a lot of success finding great remote opportunities as a job candidate and finding amazing remote talent as an employer, says Diane Elizabeth, the founder of Skin Care Ox. Ive even had a lot of success using We Work Remotely to find expert temporary freelance consultants for shorter-term projects. Ive found that a lot of highly skilled individuals who are not working remotely browse the site to find potential remote opportunities, so its a way to find key team members.

3. Facebook

Sure, Facebook isnt underutilized as far as social media networks go, but its new job posting feature definitely isnt being leveraged as widely as it should. Theres been a lot of hype surrounding the feature, but recruiters and hiring managers shouldnt stop at reading the articles. Being able to post job ads directly to companys Facebook page and accept applications through Facebooks Messenger feature makes sourcing a lot easier.

As Brad M. Shaw, president and CEO of Dallas Web Design Inc., pointed out when he nominated Facebook for our list, Facebook has by far the largest talent pool online, with over 1.8 billion users.

4. Cammio

There are a lot of video recruiting platforms out there, but Cammio is one of the best.

Its all cloud-based, and you can select from live, automated, or video pitch interviews, says Scott Wesper, hiring manager for Arch Resources Group. Its a really great tool for pre-screening your candidates in an innovative way thats enjoyable for the candidate, the recruiter, and the hiring manager. In todays digital age, it makes sense to go beyond the CV when assessing a candidate. Instead of just relying on someones work experience and education, you can get a feel for their personality and cultural fit, which can often shed light on qualified prospects who are overlooked.

5. PeerPilot

PeerPilot takes an interesting approach to recruiting. Groups of candidates collaborate on business cases, so employers can assess candidates based not on their resumes, but on their performances on relevant tasks. Candidates participate anonymously, too, which helps eliminate bias from the process.
