Most of the emphasis on resume writing and online submissions is for job seekers, but anyone who runs an HR department has a potential institutional headache on their hands. The Resumator aims to help this situation by creating a simple-to-use central resume processing point that can be embedded directly on a business website. This website widget, provides a straight-forward set of instructions for the job applicants along with tools for capturing all of the relevant contact details. Job seekers can also upload a cover letter or supporting files.
From this point, the information is organized using a unique resume tracking system, in which applicants can be reviewed and ranked without having to flip through printed documents or sifting through your email inbox which can be cumbersome and hard to track. The HR dashboard also enables multiple people such as hiring managers to review the candidates in a central location and add their comments or questions to the HR manager. It’s a great way to collaborate with the key participants in the hiring process and avoid having good candidates fall through the cracks.
The only problem with the Resumator is that it works exclusively with the Resumtor’s own widget and hosted careers website. What this means is that users cannot necessarily track resumes from other job boards: Craigslist, Monster.com, Career Builder, etc. There are ways around this: such as prompting applicants to apply on site, rather than through a Craigslist email, for example, but this means that every type of resume might not necessarily be organized by this system. Even with these limitations, the Resumator offers a powerful, read-to-use hiring platform that can streamline any businesses hiring process.
