How accurate is your OCR technology?
Rakuna’s OCR has constantly been parsing resumes with over 99% accuracy rates, given the snapshots are taken in decent conditions by Mobile App users.
How long does it take for the parsing to be done? (for the information to show up on the My Candidate’s list)
Snapshots are handled in batch, and processing time may vary depending on the quantity, image quality, etc. But the parsing job has always been completed shortly after an event is over. Therefore, when your team returns to your office, all the snapshots should have been processed and ready to view.

Want to process candidates even faster?

What’s the candidate’s response rate to the survey question?
Statistically, the candidate response rate to surveys always remains above 80% - that is amazingly high.

There is an urge for them to complete the survey ASAP to be recognized by the employers.
Whether attending an online or offline event, a recruiting team should identify their ultimate goals.
Quick brainstorming questions:
How many hires do you have to make for which departments?
What do you require from your candidates for the positions?
What are you going to do to connect with those students?
Every hiring plan has a budget, and it’s not limitless. Your ROI will eventually tell how effectively you’ve spent your expenditure, and that’s why you won’t wish to waste your money on non-feasible sources.
Be wise in choosing colleges and universities for your recruiting strategies. If there are old partners that no longer bring back promising results, don’t hesitate to find new partnerships. The key here is to try a little harder by looking into schools’ programs and picking those that meet your needs.
When you have a list of schools you want to work with, contact their career centres. They can provide you with the information you need and assist your team in completing preparatory tasks.
First impressions are scientifically proven to be essential, and in campus recruitment, they matter! Therefore, having the right people to welcome prospective candidates and present your company’s image is vital.
To find the most suitable representatives, your team should make a list of qualities and requirements for each specific campaign. These bulletins can vary from event to event. But in general, a good representative is supposed to be knowledgeable, socially intelligent, and passionate.
If you have an employee who used to go to the school you are working with, bring that alumnus to the fair. Alumni tend to be more familiar and reliable with their own experience and personal connection with the school and its students.
