Wednesday is Administrative Professionals’ Day. While this is sometimes a discrete position, I find most recruiters’ responsibilities include a chunk devoted to these types of tasks. This is in a competitive marketplace; running your own desks or as part of a small boutique team, you need to be do-it-all ninjas.
I don’t know about you, but that last frame in the image above definitely sums up how I feel trying to take care of the data and tracking side of this business. Spreadsheets galore, intricate Post-It note systems, clunky software that feels like the functionality hasn’t been updated since the days of hair bands. If my iPhone works so simply and intuitively, why can’t my ATS?
This was one of the frustrations turned inspirations of our founder, Matt. Netflix revolutionized how we search content by using simple visual tiles that people instantly recognized. Steve Jobs brought Apple back from the brink with an insane focus on simplicity (as humorously contrasted to Microsoft here). In the same vein, Loxo’s mission became “to be the most trusted, user-friendly software platform that intelligently matches talent to opportunities, enabling recruiters to achieve their greatest potential.”
What impact does this have on your day-to-day activities? Think of Loxo as your intelligent assistant who simplifies the data and administrative side of applicant tracking, allowing you to focus on your passion — helping people find their ideal next career opportunity.
