Top 3 ways X0PA AI can help to target passive job candidates

16 March 2021

Recruiters around the world already know the power of passive candidates. This heavily desirable talent pool often comes with tried and tested experience, little to no competition in recruitment, and sometimes a highly specialised skill set that is much harder to find inactive jobseekers. But how to attract passive candidates?

With research suggesting that passive candidates are more likely to make a strong initial impact upon hiring, it starts to make a compelling case for hiring managers to target those who aren’t actively looking.

The downside is that these candidates are often the hardest to recruit, due to the fact they are already employed or not actively seeking a new job, and therefore not as present on traditional hiring channels. With 70% of the global workforce made up of passive candidates, how do you strategically expand your talent acquisition process to include these highly-prized candidates?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has now become a vital solution for recruiters and hiring managers in the battle to locate and attract the best in passive candidates. So we have rounded up our top 3 ways to make the most out of X0PA AI technologies in passive talent acquisition.

#1 – Automated Candidate Sourcing via AI Sourcing

AI technology is a powerful way to collect and analyze a wide variety of data on passive candidates, which is available through job boards, social media networks, websites, posts and online resumes. Most professionals nowadays have previously searched or applied for a role online, or are active on professional networks such as LinkedIn and other industry websites. Using AI to automatically crawl through this data, recruiters can quickly match their job requirement criteria to the perfect passive candidates. 

So how does X0PA AI Recruiter work? Once you have a job description ready, this intelligent solution will go to work to pull a qualified list of highly-suitable active and passive candidates from over 40 open-sourced platforms, and then funnel them straight into an Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Rather than searching manually through LinkedIn and old resumes, recruiters can now get access to more than 750 million profiles instantly, with the added comfort of knowing the chosen candidates will be objectively matched against specific criteria to ensure best-fit. 

For even more insights, once candidates are added to the pipeline, they will be scored on the relevance of their CV, loyalty and performance metrics. Recruiters can even actively provide feedback on the suitability of the candidate profiles recommended so that Machine Learning algorithms can adjust and fine-tune future search results to specific user preferences. 


#2 – Retarget former applicants fast

Former applicants are a commonly overlooked talent pool just waiting to be tapped into, with the added benefit of knowing that since the individuals have been interested in your company previously, there may be a higher chance of response. It’s not unusual in the hiring process for CVs of previously unsuccessful candidates to be discarded or just put aside, with no future considerations. Utilizing AI gives recruiters the ability to quickly sort through a company’s existing database of CVs to detect and zoom in on suitable former applicants for current job offerings. 

X0PA’s AI Recruiter uses advanced analytics to tap into a company’s existing talent pool to surface credible candidates. Through AI-powered retargeting, past applicants who were not successful will be automatically matched and recommended in consideration for other roles that they are best suited for. The AI scores candidates in the existing talent pool based on X0PA’s patented algorithms and recommends candidates who are a strong fit for the open roles in a business, based on their scores for CV relevance to the job, loyalty and predictive performance metrics. 

#3- Identify the perfect profile on LinkedIn and find similar candidates

Found someone you think is perfect for the role but they are not available or looking for similar profiles to this perfect profile? Using X0PA AI Recruiter, you can actually “clone” their LinkedIn social profile and automatically be recommended to other ideal candidates on LinkedIn with similar profiles and skills. This revolutionary fast way of searching for talent can empower any hiring manager or recruiter to find perfect candidates in a matter of seconds. Once selected, these candidates can then be added to your talent pool for future follow up.
