At the same time, recruiters are pressed for time as companies increase the number of their employees –Especially for technical positions.
The question then is: How can recruiters increase their recruitment while creating a personalized and enjoyable experience for each candidate in their pipeline?
This is where automation Kicks. Automating core recruitment functions frees up recruiters to do what they excel at: building relationships with candidates.

As experts in the field, CodeSignal and GoodTime have identified some easy ways to leverage recruitment automation to free up time for recruiters.
1. Automate your interview scheduling
Scheduling interviews is one of those activities where more time spent is not equal to more value accrued. In fact, an automated interview scheduling tool tends to make mistakes much less than a person and can maneuver between multiple interviewer schedules in a fraction of the time it will take for a recruiter. However, many recruitment teams still schedule interviews manually.
A recent study by GoodTime Find that using an automated interview scheduling tool can increase the productivity of a recruiting team b Up to 200 percent.
At their best, these tools can turn all scheduling back and forth with candidates, including:
- Request for candidate availability
- Match the availability of the candidate with the calendars of the interviewing team
- Send calendar invitations with relevant information and links in advance
- Optimize efficiency by scheduling in minutes, not hours
Set up automated emails for tracking and reminder
Reminder and follow-up message automation is one of the easiest automation breaches to recruit because it is probably a feature of a tool you are already using, such as ATS or your technical assessment platform. An email reminder before an upcoming interview is an easy way to do this Increase the number of touch points That create a positive experience for the candidate.
These emails do not have to be very personal – they just need to be helpful. This is entirely possible with a template, an automatic email.
Take advantage of the integrations between tools you already use
Integrations are an effective hack but often do not utilize time savings for recruiters. Well done, integrations can Reduce the number of external tools A recruiter has to navigate his daily work from a dozen to only 2-3: his ATS, LinkedIn and email, for example.
Here are some of the most useful combinations for recruiters:
