Without a single global view of candidate touchpoints, the Abercrombie & Fitch Co. Talent Acquisition Team not only spent a lot of time collecting candidate data but also frequently found themselves reaching out to the same candidates. With LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect, candidate data can be viewed in one workflow, so recruiters can avoid overlap and cut down on research time.
With candidate data spread across multiple platforms, A&F Talent Acquisition Team member Jared Best regularly spent valuable time between systems collecting data on candidates. Disconnected systems meant Best and the other recruiters operated in silos, frequently dealing with gaps in candidate history that often caused overlap on candidate outreach.
A comprehensive view of candidate data
For quick and easy access to complete, accurate, and up-to-date candidate information, the A&F team activated LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect. Now data in both LinkedIn Recruiter and their applicant tracking system, SmartRecruiters, is available in a single, robust view, which helps avoid overlap in outreach. Connected systems not only save Best and the team time on candidate research, but with the full recruitment history of a prospect in hand—as well as up-to-date employment status—recruiters can personalize messaging to create a more positive candidate experience with the brand.
Consolidation of data via Recruiter System Connect cut candidate research time in half.
Improved team efficiency
Accurate information about a candidate’s history with the company helps recruiters avoid overlap in candidate outreach.
Better-informed candidate outreach
Access to all candidate data in a single view means A&F recruiters can confidently tailor candidate messaging.
“We now have the ability to pull up a candidate’s profile in either SmartRecruiters or LinkedIn Recruiter and see any interaction we may have had with that candidate. Having this organized view saves us time and enhances the candidate interaction with our talent brand.”
