Recruiters often have to perform complex searches on their own database as well as on external databases (like LinkedIn) to find suitable candidates. Innovative technologies can help with this process. Yvette van der Vliet and Tim de Raadt of YER explain how they used Textkernel’s technology to be able to match candidates and jobs faster.

Starting situation: poorly searchable databases

“To find suitable candidates for filling in a vacancy, we had to perform complex searches on multiple databases. This took a lot of time and was very complicated. “, says Yvette van der Vliet, Director Recruitment & Interim Solutions at YER. Yer’s data could not be searched well. Candidates could be searched for by keywords and difficult boolean strings. YER faced the challenge: how could they match candidates and vacancies faster and more effectively?

Solution: Use of Textkernel’s recruiting tools

yvette“After extensive market research, we have chosen the combination of Textkernel’s recruiting tools Extract! CV parsing, Search!, Match! and Jobfeed to facilitate and accelerate the matching process for our recruiters”, Yvette explains. With Match! YER is able to convert a vacancy text in a search with just one click and match this on their database. With the Jobfeed connection, YER is able to match all online Dutch jobs to their candidates. The semantic search software Search! makes it easier for recruiters to search their own database (with Extract! CV Parsing structured profiles) as well as external databases like Linkedin for the best candidates. The tools integrate seemlessly with the existing systems.

Result: faster and easier matching candidates and jobs
