Anyone with a foot in this world, knows that we are in the age of opinion. One bad review can spread like wildfire, and can immediately influence a buyers level of engagement with a business. In the recruitment world, why should the expectation for quality of service be any different? How are you treating your customers (your Candidates) through your product (your Recruiters)? When the product is people, how do you find out if your candidates like your product over another company? How is your product performing?
Recruiter Insider, solves a lot of these problems. By seeking out real time candidate feedback, it allows you to consolidate and evaluate data on each recruiter. Subsequently you can cumulatively rate and rank recruiter performance within the agency, and within the greater RI community.
By linking to your JobAdder, Recruiter Insider, allows you to monitor compliance in terms of job ad and data entry accuracy, and evaluate the levels of activity over time against sentiment analysis of candidate feedback.
If you’re looking to be compliant, knock the candidate experience right out of the pipeline and have full transparency of your recruiter performance than this might be something for you.

Do you find yourself doing things sometimes without any real sense of purpose, or reason why? Maybe just because everyone else is doing it, or because you’ve always done it?
Some time after I turned 40 I started to notice things in my life that just made no sense whatsoever. My life had changed dramatically in the preceding decade, with 2 children, a growing business, lots of business travel, and dozens of other challenges I never faced in my 20s and 30s. And yet I was still doing some things that I had always done, with little thought to whether they made sense or not.
The first major thought provoking event for me was losing my mobile phone in a taxi and deciding “bugger it, I keep losing phones, and I hate them anyway so I will go without”. I went without a mobile phone for over a year and it was bliss. I blogged about it here.
After abandoning the use of a mobile phone I had the immediate realisation that it had been consuming an enormous part of my life, almost without me realising it. I suddenly had all this extra time in my day, and much less angst. I was sleeping better, waking up on time without the alarm, and there was not one single moment in 12 months where I felt like I needed a phone (although my wife would say she missed the “arrived safely” and “on way home” texts).
Some time after that I realised I felt the same way about Facebook and that it had been consuming a similar, disproportionate amount of my life. I did not think I used Facebook much, until I didn’t have it on my phone. Once the mobile was gone, so were the constant beeps, buzzes, flashes and red lights telling me someone I knew had had an anniversary, or a sandwich, or a manicure. So I closed my Facebook account. It did take me two attempts and a few weeks before finally hitting the “delete everything forever” button. And just like that Facebook was out of my life.
There was another important reason I quit Facebook, and one that does not get discussed anywhere near as much as I think it should. After having children it occured to me that we were all mindlessly posting pictures of our children to the internet, where they will likely remain forever, without ever asking their permission. My daughters were too young to care, but soon enough they will be teenagers and then adults, and they will discover hundreds of photos of them were posted to Facebook by their parents, grandparents, friends of the family and other assorted random people. There are going to be generations of children whose privacy has been violated, and they may have little to no recourse.
With facial recognition software now accessible to anyone with a computer, and becoming increasingly used by Governments and businesses, I had the shocking realisation that I had absolutely no idea how my children’s images might be used later, and by whom. Were my daughters going to go travelling the world after school and find out they were known and recognised by software systems in stores in London and bars in Paris because of my proud-parent Facebook posts? Were their friends going to pull out silly pics of them from when they were tiny and embarrass them at their 21st birthday party? (Note that these are some of the least objectionable scenarios I can imagine too).
Recent Facebook privacy breaches only underscore that my decision to delete Facebook was absolutely correct for our family.
A few months later we moved to the countryside and I found myself with a 1.5 hour drive to work. Without a phone it was difficult to listen to podcasts and audiobooks on my drive, so against my better judgment I went and bought one.
With no Facebook, my new phone experience was much improved, but I still had a number of other sites that were behaving the same way and creating almost non stop noise and distraction. So I first deleted the Slack app from my phone, then the LinkedIn app (I will blog later about our struggles with Slack at JobAdder and the recent decision to remove it from our business).
After a few months I went further and deleted my LinkedIn account altogether. Of all the social sites LinkedIn was by far the most difficult account to delete. Not because I had second thoughts but because they deliberately make it nearly impossible.
LinkedIn has been an interesting one for people to understand and I get asked about it more than I did about not having a phone. As CEO and founder of a tech company, some people struggled to understand how I could not be on LinkedIn? The reality is; very easily! It is not like I didn’t give it a red hot go – I had used LinkedIn continually since opening my account in 2005. I had a lot of contacts and followers and many of my posts had upwards of 100,000 views. However, it was really a one way street all along. LinkedIn benefited from my investment of time and energy, but I was the product the whole time, not the beneficiary. I don’t think I got anything like the return or value from my investment in LinkedIn, relative to the effort I put into it. It was a bad relationship and I have plenty of other amazing relationships in my life that I would like to focus on.
Today I have a mobile phone with a Gmail app on it, Audible, Castbox, a few games my kids play, and nothing else. This is a much healthier, more sustainable relationship. I also came to learn that my previous animosity towards my phone was not caused by the phone itself, but by the apps on it.
Now, when I am going to sleep there is no anxiety-invoking beeping and flashing to draw me in. When I wake up there is nothing for me to check or start stressing about before the day has even started. I can play music, listen to a podcast or book, call someone and say hello, message my wife, check the weather, and very little else. This works for me and this is how it will stay.
I decided not to spend paragraphs listing all the benefits I have experienced since quitting social media and Slack. My experience is personal and so is yours. There are also hundreds of other posts on Google on the subject and I agree with most of them. What I will say however is that I am a very happy quitter and it is addictive once you start. I am noticeably more present for my family and colleagues, I am looking at my phone a hell of a lot less than I used to, I am less stressed, sleeping better and I have more time in my day. Any one of those reasons would have been enough to have made it worthwhile.

You asked and we listened! This month we’re excited to bring more improvements to the JobAdder mobile app to give your fingers a rest (finally!). The mobile team is back with Automatic Notes Creation and Speech-to-Text features.
Watch the video below for a quick explanation of how these features work.
Automatic Note Creation
Have you ever called a candidate from the JobAdder app but forgotten what the conversation was about or the next steps you have to take? Automatic note creation is here to help across every category in the app (Jobs, Job Applications, Candidates, Contacts, Companies & Placements) for calls, emails or SMS.
Once you complete an action using the JobAdder app (such as calling that contact) and return to the app, a screen will appear with the following information pre-filled:
Once you’re happy with the content of the note (you can even edit it), tap ‘Save’ and it will be visible in the JobAdder app and JobAdder on the web.
Study says speech-to-text is 3x faster than typing on your phone. Yes, you read that correctly, 3 times faster! With that in mind, we’ve added this feature to the JobAdder app to help you save time and recruit on the go.
It’s super easy to use, from the note creation screen just tap the microphone button and start speaking. Once you’ve finished, tap the button again, and your text will be on the screen. Give your fingers a rest and record notes when rushing to that next important meeting. We know you don’t have time to waste.
Don’t be a Kermit, give it a whirl today!

Youtube, Snapchat, Facetime, Skype, Zoom, Instagram stories – it’s clear that video is transforming the way we express ourselves and communicate with friends and colleagues.
Video is now routine and has started taking hold in the job application process as well. Why? Because you’re hiring a real person. Soft skills, such as communication and character are a lot harder to gauge via CV, even for experienced recruiters and hiring managers.
That said, we’re thrilled to launch the video cover letter functionality in JobAdder (and completely free of charge!).
If you haven’t checked it out already, we’d love you to give it a test drive. Simply tick the “allow video cover letters” box next time you’re posting a job ad, and we’ll automatically enable it across your application forms.
From then on, candidates can record and upload a 60 second video cover letter on their mobile, tablet or desktop device. Recruitment professionals can then watch candidates’ video submissions straight from the job application quick view.
But wait – there’s more! Simply click on the “Get share link” to copy a share url for the video straight to your clipboard. From there you can share the cover letter with a team member working on the job with you, or send your best candidates straight to your hiring manager for review.
View the video, then skim the CV
It’s time to buckle your seatbelts. Video cover letters have the power to truly transform the way you screen and shortlist candidates.
These days, it’s normal for recruiters to ask for a written Cover Letter, CV and LinkedIn profile. While these flat summaries allow you to assess a candidate’s experience on paper, they make it hard to evaluate someone’s soft skills.
This is where the beauty of video cover letters comes in. With just a click of a button and 60 seconds or less of your attention, you can assess candidate’s personality.
This could mean the difference between spending precious hours of your day organising and conducting phone screening/face-to-face interviews, or progressing/rejecting candidates in under a minute!
How to create an effective cover letter?
Think of your video cover letter as a “movie trailer”, and your career as a movie. Make it exciting, memorable and give just enough information to really interest the recruiter or hiring manager.
Here are some tips to help you create an effective video cover letter:
Trial the new video cover letter feature in JobAdder, and don’t be shy to give us your feedback. We’ll be bringing some more exciting new improvements very soon!
If you have any ideas or feedback you’d like to share, reach out to Akahsha at email@example.com.
In your job description, don’t forget to ask applicants to record a short introductory video cover letter and submit it along with their CV.
This will serve you well! You’ll be able to see how the candidate interacts, gauge their personality, and quickly eliminate any inappropriate candidates. By reviewing both the CV and video cover letter, you can easily find the right person for the job!

By now, most recruiters are in tune with the importance of a diverse and inclusive workplace. It’s proved that teams with a broader range of experiences and perspectives perform better. However, a vast body of research shows that the hiring process can be biased. Whether conscious or not, it can play a big role in whom we hire. This is especially likely to happen when recruiters have to screen dozens of job applications every day, and simply don’t have enough time to accurately assess everyone’s communication ability.
With the globalisation of the workforce and an ever-expanding access to a diverse talent pool, it’s extremely important for recruiters to be able to quickly and accurately assess candidate’s English language communication skills. To help recruitment professionals make low-risk hiring decisions and increase diversity, FluentIQ has developed a robust test that allows for almost instant assessment of someone’s English language communication abilities in a real-world context.
A bit about FluentIQ
FluentIQ is a test of real-world English communication designed for the talent industry. Using FluentIQ provides an easier way to hire and build more diverse teams, at lower cost.
The online, one-hour test assesses candidate’s speaking, listening, writing and reading skills, and provides an overall score of combined abilities alongside a compartmentalised breakdown. Even better, recruiters have the option to weight the test by capabilities, in response to the requirements for each individual role. Recruiters are then quickly able to see where candidate’s abilities align within a role and acknowledge potential for development within existing teams.
Unlike existing English tests, the FluentIQ test is designed to assess the real-world communication skills needed for talent acquisition and development. Fluent IQ helps recruiters avoid unnecessary elimination of talent who would have been great hires, remove bias from the hiring process and build diverse teams with minimal effort.
The FluentIQ test also has a built-in fraud protection that aims to give recruiters complete confidence that the person on the certificate is the same person who took the test. Added peace of mind is provided by way of a video of the test taker embedded into the digital certificate.
JobAdder and FluentIQ work together
Having FluentIQ integrated into JobAdder allows JobAdder customers to seamlessly bring the FluentIQ test into their recruitment process. Quickly send out tests to multiple candidates and compare results in JobAdder. FluentIQ’s test assesses English language fluency across the board, analysing an individual’s speaking, listening, reading and writing abilities. Once verified by Fluent IQ (24 hour process) the test scores are populated on the Candidate’s record in JobAdder.
Get started straight away
It’s really easy to get started with FluentIQ and JobAdder.
If you’re new to FluentIQ, head to the FluentIQ website to check it out and sign up for an enterprise account. Once you have your account set up, contact JobAdder to enable the integration. Our team will link your FluentIQ Enterprise account to your JobAdder account. Finally, you are ready to go! Change any job application status to “Send FluentIQ Invite” for 15mins and an invite will be emailed to your candidate.
To see FluentIQ in action, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
