It is every recruiter’s dream to find candidates and fill the position fast as possible. But, for many reasons, this won’t go according to the plan. And most of the time, after publishing a job post, the next big question we often have is how to attract more candidates. It can be really simple if you do it right. In this article, we highlight specifically how to attract candidates the right way using Rooster’s ATS feature and how to get the best out of it. 😄
Let’s take a look at a few ways how to attract more candidates on Rooster ATS.

Social media is the way to go in the modern world. On average, a person spends about 2 and a half hours on social media.
