Recruiters can use social media for sourcing candidates. However, the hiring process doesn't end here. Recruiters need to contact, assess and onboard candidates without any biasing. The next step after sourcing candidates is contacting them regarding the job opportunity and asking for CVs. The most common format of a CV that recruiters receive is Word or PDF form. Even though these formats are easy to read, computer interpretation is more complicated. Now, here Edith Pro comes into the picture.
