How to Work and Hire with Recruiters Effortlessly using Milestone.

January 27, 2023

What is Milestone?

Milestone is a cornerstone feature that makes working with recruiters easier than ever. The dashboard gives you a quick overview of all the candidates you receive from every recruiter. They’re intelligently categorised into different columns for the different stages in a recruitment pipeline, so you can easily pick up from where you left off.

Visually, you will find it similar to other ATS (Applicant Tracking System). It’s designed this way to utilise the UX Mental Model to minimise the learning curve for first time users.

A PRODUCTIVITY TOOL DESIGNED FOR THE MODERN HR

Today, HR professionals are managing 30-40+ recruitment assignments simultaneously. Milestone was designed specifically with the modern HR in mind and ultimately make every recruitment journey effortless.

In Milestone, you can easily action on any candidate easily. Want to schedule an interview with a candidate? No problem, It’s only one click away. Traditionally, working with recruiters has been very time-consuming that takes a lot of back-and-forth. It takes multiple phone calls and emails in order to complete simple tasks like scheduling an interview for a candidate or sharing feedback on a candidate interview. On Milestone, these tedious tasks are completed with just a few clicks of a button, so you can quickly get back on growing your business.

SEAMLESS COMMUNICATION AND WORK THE WAY THAT FITS YOU.

You can access Milestone in any settings, anytime; when you are in a meeting / in office / at home. That means you can keep your collaboration with recruiters seamless in-between your meetings / commitments without being interrupted.

Just like a WhatsApp, your communications are stored securely, and can be shared with members of your team. You will be away and won’t be available for recruitment for a few days? No problem, your team can take over the recruitment while being perfectly up-to-date on what has happened.

MILESTONE IS AN ATS AND A RECRUITER COLLABORATION PLATFORM ROLLED INTO ONE.

Why did we build Milestone?

At Find Recruiter, we want to provide a more effective way for recruiters and employers to build meaningful relationships. We noticed that many of existing methods that recruiters and employers use to collaborate can be vastly improved by the use of modern Technology.

Better transparency for both recruiter and employer

Miscommunication is an expensive problem in recruitment. Many misunderstandings between a recruiter and an employer are caused by the lack of transparency. It happens even when both parties are genuinely trying to work together. What if there is a platform that allows you to maintain a transparent relationship with your recruiters effortlessly?

That’s why we built Milestone: We want a modern tool for you to collaborate with remote recruiters as if they are part of your in-house hiring team.
