How technology is solving the most annoying thing about recruiting?

Every company tends to have its own ‘Holy Grail’ when it comes to recruitment and staffing, this includes attracting, screening, selecting and on-boarding!

For the past couple of decades, recruitment process was all about finding the candidates, tracking them and hiring them using some old school methods. However, the inception of web technologies such as video marketing (vlogs), blogs, social media, etc. have begun to turn the tables for human resources professionals and talent acquisition experts when it comes to recruitment. 

Old-school recruitment process requires the HR department to navigate through heaps of resumes and applications, which is tiring and full of hassle. On the other hand, technology or data –driven recruitment comes as a boon for recruiters all over the globe, since it makes the entire task a cakewalk.
