Risk Control: How Paper Applicant Processes Place You in the Red Zone

Risk Control

The job ad read: “Mail a cover letter and résumé to P.O. Box…” The request seems innocent enough but it is actually a slip into what cheekily refer to as “the red flag zone.”

The biggest obstacle to a company’s success is a paper résumé. Red flags that come to mind are:

  • Résumé sits on someone’s desk, creating a backlog until they can review it
  • Résumé cannot be objectively parsed to determine if experience matches job requirements
  • Any notes made on the résumé are not shared with multiple stakeholders

And looking ahead to your growing needs, we see no opportunity for continuous improvement with a paper résumé. Instead, our online applicant tracking system integrates the entire process — from the moment a Hiring Manager fills out a requisition with HR to the efficient onboarding of your new hire.
