4 tips to keep in mind during the software selection process

  1. Figure out which recruiting software features you need right now, as well as what you'll need as your business grows. Use these lists when you talk to software providers and select a tool that offers all (or most) of them.

  2. Make sure that your chosen software integrates with your existing HR management system.

  3. Choose software that fits your budget and is scalable, in terms of the number of licenses or users. Ask about any hidden costs or fees before you purchase a solution.

  4. Opt for free trials and ask software providers for demos to ensure you're purchasing a tool that offers hiring and recruitment as a core feature.
