It is no secret that finding suitable candidates for a specific job is not an easy, and could be extremely challenging. Resumes in many cases do not reflect the capabilities and skills of the candidates. In other words, the terms used in the resume are hence very and need to be fitted to the vacant position or to the relevant terminology (i.e. Systems Engineering, IT, administration, sales, etc.) which harms their prospects to “be chosen” by HR managers who are looking for the best and most suitable people for the job.
Now that numerous resumes of candidates are in Niloosoft’s System, it is all a matter of efficiency: how to find the best candidate for the job?

“Hunter’s candidates”. A window will open us search options that allow us to type in the same keywords that will lead us to the perfect candidate. This is a user-friendly system that saves precious time and thus optimizes the recruitment process.
Since HR managers are familiar with Hunter EDGE system, they can upgrade their search for the perfect candidate by using the following guidelines and suggestions:
Let’s begin by making sure that each and every CV consists of the following parameters:

When HR managers are looking for candidates with Niloosoft recruitment system, they need to first define their profiles. What are they looking for? System engineers with managerial experience? Must they specialize in a certain field? What languages must they speak/should speak? Has the client (the potential employer) defined the requirement of a certain specialty or work experience? Having substantial experience with specific systems or software-? Where did they serve in the military? (Especially if there is relevance to the job) and more.
After completing the job description, HR managers filter the candidates according to various pre-defined parameters such as qualifications, skills, professional experience and education.
Let’s take, for instance, a radar system engineer’s resume as a candidate for a top position.
The first paragraph should include the candidate’s qualifications, capabilities and skills:

- Skilled Design and integration of electronics equipment and interfaces to software, hardware and RF.

- Ability to lead and manage multidisciplinary teams.
To locate the most suitable candidates for the job, look for the relevnt professional terminology in the field. For example:

Let’s go back to the radar systems engineer.
If we defined the position as management (executive), we must carefully examine the level of skills, education including professional experience of the candidate mostly by working with worldwide companies.
In addition, we must be very clear in terms of their personal and professional qualifications as listed under their English resume under “Qualifications”

I always compare this to deciphering the codes as if we are dealing with opening a SAFE at the bank. If you are precise, you will open that safe.
You will then close that deal or in this case, find the PERFECT candidate for your client.
As mentioned, finding a suitable candidate for each position is sometimes a complex task that requires experience and professionalism nonetheless when the task is to find professionals such as engineers, project managers in the field of space industry, radar and other systems. Therefore, it is important to strongly emphasize that when you, HR managers, meet the person who is looking for a job, make sure he/she send you a professionally written CV with precise terms that will allow the identification of high quality candidates for the relevant position.
