Virtual work is a concept that has been introduced previously in the professional world, especially in the tech industry. Most companies are embracing remote and hybrid work to expand their employment pool and maximize efficiency and output. This was confirmed in a study by Cielo in 2020 – The Future of Work Survey. The study showed that 64% of recruiters are now more open to virtual work.

The popularity of remote work skyrocketed with the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic that took the world by storm, causing worldwide lockdowns and closure of non-essential businesses. To save their companies, CEOs adopted remote work. Although the pandemic is under control and it’s full steam ahead for all companies, many have retained remote or virtual employment.

However, remote, and physical work require different strategies to maximize their potential. Therefore, relying on the exact procedures for hiring, onboarding, and training workers would be detrimental.

Without face-to-face interaction with your employees, assessing their potential, hard and soft skills, professionalism, and whether they would be a good fit for your organization is challenging. The good news is that there are multiple ways you can replicate the physical experience of interviewing, hiring, onboarding, and training employees without wasting resources and time.

This article will discuss ways to maximize virtual recruitment and training for app development.

1.    Plan virtual recruitment events

Recruitment events are an excellent opportunity to expand the talent pool, boost brand awareness, and establish connections with potential candidates. Job fairs are relatively easy to set up depending on the platform you choose and other third-party software services you include.

Indeed and Brazen are two of the most popular platforms you can use to organize job fairs. You can create an account, sign up, and create your virtual event in minutes. After creating your event, you can link to other apps like Zoom to allow for video conferencing. Although, some apps come with video conferencing tools embedded in them.

A day before the event, you can open the ‘lobby’ and let other interviewers in and prepare for the fair by customizing greetings and questions.

Brazen is a crowd favorite because of its ‘booth’ feature that allows companies to share information about their culture and environment that is readily available to anyone who registers for the fair. This information includes pictures, videos, short text, and links to other relevant pages.

Once applicants register for a fair, a landing page automatically collects their resumes, cover letters, and additional information.

At the end of job fairs, recruiters can take the next steps with candidates who stood out, such as direct messaging, emailing them or forwarding their information to concerned parties for further assessment.

2.    Request video applications

You can opt for video interviews if you want to get a real feel of a face-to-face interview without the awkward silences, tension and wait times. In addition, video interviews are a creative way to get an insight into the behavior of your potential employees.

For video interviews, you can send out questions they can answer in a self-recorded interview that they have to submit before a specific time. For instance, you can ask them to answer hypothetical questions directly related to the role they are applying for, their strengths, weaknesses, experience, qualifications, and achievements they are most proud of.

Video interviews can help you infer whether an applicant is confident, honest, ambitious, and skilled and whether they would fit your company well.

3.    Grow your employer brand

Employers want to hire the crème de la crème in each field to build top-notch apps. However, this is easier said than done. If you want to hire the best talent, you have to ensure that they know about your company’s existence. If you are just starting out, this can be pretty challenging, especially when you want to recruit remotely.

One way to fix this is by increasing brand awareness. Developers need to know about your company, and they should want to work with you. You can start by working on your online presence—open social media accounts on all appropriate platforms like LinkedIn, Indeed, Twitter, Facebook, etc. In addition, populate your website with information about your company, such as the culture, vision, mission, portfolio, and events.

Add real pictures of employees at the workplace if you have a physical office, and even create virtual tours so applicants can get a sneak peek into your work environment.

Note: You can outsource your PR work to professionals if you want a highly effective brand presence.

Lastly, monitor reviews about your company on platforms like Glassdoor. You can learn much from an objective perspective on your company.

4.    Make use of ATS

Application tracking software is a lifesaver for HR teams. Screening, interviewing, and hiring candidates can be an overwhelming experience, especially for jobs that can be done remotely, like app development. You will have more than the average number of applications if you open the role to any qualified applicant worldwide.

Application tracking software will help you cut the hiring process by days. ATS takes care of receiving resumes, cover letters, and contact information and storing it. ATS also handles screening candidates and rooting out unqualified candidates to reduce the load recruiters have to deal with personally.

In addition, it lets candidates see their application status and handles the scheduling of interviewers.

5.    Keep lines of communication open at all times

Although virtual hiring may be commonplace for your company, some applicants may be new to the entire process. It can feel like an isolating and scary process because they don’t have candidates the comfort and camaraderie of other candidates, they would have met at the interview venue. To get the most out of your remote hiring and onboarding process, you should ensure that your potential employees are as comfortable as possible.

You can achieve this by keeping lines of communication open and responsive at all times.

Below, I will share a few tips to make the process easier for candidates.

  • Create a comprehensive document that will be shared with all applicants

To avoid confusion and chaos in hiring, you can create a simple document that answers most of the questions candidates may have. For instance, the video interview date, the hiring process, its stages, who will be conducting the interviews, how long the interviews will be, and what sample questions they can expect.

Candidates are always unsure about video interviews because each company conducts their interviews differently. In the PDF, let them know whether it will be a video interview or an audio one. If they must have their video on, state the dress code and whether they should join early and stay in the waiting room.

You can also let them know if they need a pen and notepad ready to take notes. By clearly outlining all this, you are guaranteed confident and prepared candidates.

  • Hold AMA sessions

As we mentioned earlier, virtual interviews mean applicants don’t have the luxury of meeting other candidates and sharing extra information about the job or company. To remedy this, you can hold ‘Ask Me Anything’ sessions to let them ask any questions they may have about the organization and role they are applying for.

In addition, you can acquaint them with the hiring process, how long it will take and how they will know if they’ve made it to the next level.

AMA sessions are a great idea because they let candidates get familiar with the company and allow you to feel the candidates out. You will be able to see the candidates who are chatty, confident, enthusiastic, and confident by the frequency with which they ask questions and voice their concerns and issues.

Every employer wants a social candidate who isn’t afraid to stand out. AMA sessions are an opportunity to express that.

Bonus: You can record these sessions and save them for future purposes. Instead of holding them whenever you are hiring, you can share them with potential employees and save time.

6.    Take shortlisted candidates for a trial run

Source: Unsplash

If you want to be sure of your potential candidate’s hard skills before you commit to a full-time role, you can make the final stage of the interview process a simple paid job that they have to complete in a given amount of time.

Alternatively, it can be a simple live test during their interview to ensure they don’t have outside help. Finally, successful candidates can be hired and offered the role in a formal email.

7.    Send out welcome packages

Who said virtual hiring has to be impersonal and cold? You can take the seriousness out of hiring by sending a surprise welcome SWAG bag to the hired candidate. It can include a brochure, branded products, a company laptop, you name it. If your pockets are deep, you can throw in a fun extra gift like a box of chocolates or a Starbucks gift card.

Wrapping up

If you borrow most of these tips, hiring and training remote workers can be the most seamless and rewarding experience.

A pivotal trend in successful recruitment processes for businesses is candidate experience. This strategy is novel and could become a new approach for years to come. Candidates with positive experiences during the hiring process find it easier to secure a job, and some may even refer others to join the company. A survey by Kelly Services revealed that 95% of candidates impressed by the recruitment process would reapply, and 55% would share their experiences on social media, enhancing the company's reputation. This also contributes to strengthening the relationship between the company and potential candidates. To be at the forefront of recruitment trends and establish a modern hiring environment, this job search app is not merely a tool but a reliable companion in the job search journey. With numerous unique features and conveniences, this app has revolutionized how candidates and career consultants interact and collaborate. Beyond a Simple Recruitment App The job search app is pioneering and unique, marking a breakthrough in the current market.

      Mass Recruitment in the Digital Age: The Future of Hiring

      Finding enough "good" candidates is always the biggest problem when we talk to organizations of all shapes and sizes. When businesses must fill a large number of openings quickly, the issue becomes more challenging. For recruiting teams, who struggle to handle the mass recruitment, this is a major headache. The solution to problems will be supportive technology software and applications, which will simplify the hiring process for both the company and the candidates. What is Mass Recruitment? Mass recruitment refers to the process of hiring a significant number of individuals within a particular time frame. This approach is often utilized when a company is rapidly growing or requires many new employees simultaneously, such as when opening a new branch or during peak periods in service industries. In contrast to low-volume hiring, the mass recruitment procedure necessitates more preparation work and takes longer to choose candidates. Because of this, focusing more on hiring speed, automation, and efficiency is necessary for mass hiring, especially when it comes to getting rid of manual processes that become unworkable at scale. Why Should You Make Use of Mass Recruitment? Although it is uncommon to come across many businesses using this method of hiring employees, it is the most effective choice when it comes to incorporating the right candidates for brief periods of time. Those advantages mentioned below will prove that assertion. Speed and Efficiency Let's say you are the head of recruitment, and one day your boss announces that a new branch will open early in the next following year. It's exciting news that shows how well-run and quickly expanding the company is. However, you are aware that the new branch will need to hire hundreds of new employees quickly and your boss will not put up with any sort of compromise on the candidate's quality. Then the most effective solution that can meet the criteria of time and quality is definitely mass hiring. This is the proper hiring procedure that aids in selecting the best candidates. However, these steps can be streamlined with the help of recruitment automation, which is crucial when hiring large numbers of candidates. Recruitment automation uses digital technologies to speed up the hiring process by automating various tasks and workflows, increasing productivity, and assisting recruiters in saving time, money, and resources while also improving the overall quality of candidates. Access to a Wider Pool of Candidates Reaching a large number of candidates is not too difficult due to the popularity of social networking sites and recruitment websites. According to Jobvite, while the average job posting only attracts in less than 50 candidates, the high volume hiring draws in more than 250 candidates. Mass hiring entails luring a sizable pool of applicants, whose resumes are all logged by the company. Every time a new position becomes available, the recruiting team cannot simply search for new applicants. The past candidates' profiles contain useful information that recruiters should also consider. The larger candidate pool gives recruiters more opportunities to gather pertinent information, which enhances the effectiveness of your hiring decisions. Cost-Effectiveness The Economist estimates that businesses around the world have spent more than $400 billion on human resources services. A Glassdoor study found that the average cost of hiring an employee is about $4,000. However, organizations have been able to cut costs significantly through Mass Recruitment. With this hiring method, recruiting costs are significantly decreased because less wasteful advertising, administrative costs, and employee costs are incurred. How to Best Optimize your Mass Recruitment Strategy? Rapid employee growth can be achieved through mass hiring, but there are certain risks involved, most notably negative candidate experiences. However, with careful planning, these problems can be avoided. Define Your Criteria If you first define the objectives of your organization, you can save a lot of time during the hiring process. Explain to the hiring team the qualities you're looking for in candidates, such as skills, work experience, background education, or even personality and attitude. You can also create a screening template that specifies the inquiries you'll make and the kinds of responses you want from applicants. As with any hiring process, each position must have a detailed job description. If you are recruiting multiple people for the same job, this process becomes much easier. With the final description, you are ready to provide potential candidates with a clear picture of the job. Develop a Strong Employer Brand A strong employer brand will attract more applicants for open positions, better-qualified candidates, and lower turnover. From a survey by CR Magazine and Cielo Talent , 69% of workers said they would not choose a company with a poor reputation, even if it is the only offer they get. Businesses must work on their employer brand to demonstrate that they deserve to be chosen as an employer to attract qualified candidates, especially for Mass hiring, where more than just job postings is required. Keep the Candidate’s Experience in Mind Mass hiring increases both the positive and negative aspects of your hiring process because many candidates will likely contact your business quickly. From the first contact to the moment you make the job offer, you can still give each candidate a personalized experience even though you need to hire many candidates quickly. It's a candidate-driven market because there is a global talent shortage. Companies that do not care about the candidate's experience will struggle in the current labor market. At every stage of the hiring process, candidates should be updated on the status of their applications and the next steps and given plenty of guidance and support to help improve their chances of success. For this reason, you should try to automate communication with candidates whenever you can. Use Technology to Streamline the Process Automation Technology is the key to any success mass hiring. Miahire can be an excellent option if you're looking for an automation solution to improve workflow and further lessen the need for manual or repetitive tasks. Miahire is a video interviewing solution that enables you to screen candidates more quickly and efficiently by digitizing the process of large-scale recruitment. Manage and set up the interview: Miahire makes it simple to make a list of questions, create an automatic interview schedule, and easily adjust the format and allotment of time for each candidate to respond to questions.Evaluate candidates: Using evaluation forms that have already been created for each job position, recruiters can quickly and fairly assess candidates by comparing positive responses.

          Integrating IAP with Other Features in React Native

          Following the series about React Native IAP (In-App Purchases), in this article we will discover how to integrate IAP with other features. Integrating In-App Purchases (IAP) with other features in a React Native application can enhance user engagement and maximize revenue. This article will explore how to combine IAP with other monetization methods, sync IAP data with backend services, and use IAP data to personalize user experiences. We'll provide examples and code snippets to illustrate these integrations. Let's explore other articles in this series. Implementing IAP (In-App Purchases) in a React Native App Best Practices for React Native IAP (In-App Purchases) Combining IAP with Other Monetization Methods To diversify revenue streams, you can combine IAP with other monetization methods like ads and affiliate marketing. Example: Combining IAP with Ads You can offer an ad-free experience through IAP while still generating revenue from users who prefer the free version with ads. Integrate Ad SDK: Use a library like react-native-google-mobile-ads to display ads. import { BannerAd, BannerAdSize, TestIds } from '@react-native-google-mobile-ads'; const AdComponent = () => ( <BannerAd unitId={TestIds.BANNER} size={BannerAdSize.FULL_BANNER} requestOptions={{ requestNonPersonalizedAdsOnly: true, }} /> ); 2. Offer Ad-Free Purchase: Create an in-app purchase for removing ads. const productIds = ['com.example.remove_ads']; const buyRemoveAds = async () => { try { await RNIap.requestPurchase(productIds[0]); } catch (err) { console.warn(err.code, err.message); } }; // Example button to trigger purchase <Button title="Remove Ads" onPress={buyRemoveAds} />; 3. Conditional Rendering: Check if the user has purchased the ad-free version and conditionally render ads. const [adsRemoved, setAdsRemoved] = useState(false); useEffect(() => { const checkPurchase = async () => { const purchases = await RNIap.getAvailablePurchases(); setAdsRemoved(purchases.some(purchase => purchase.productId === productIds[0])); }; checkPurchase(); }, []); return ( <View> {!adsRemoved && <AdComponent />} {/* Other app components */} </View> ); Syncing IAP Data with Backend Services Syncing IAP data with a backend service helps maintain user purchase records, validate transactions, and provide a seamless experience across devices. Backend Setup: Create a simple backend to handle receipt validation and store purchase data. Here’s an example using Node.js and Express: const express = require('express'); const bodyParser = require('body-parser'); const app = express(); app.use(bodyParser.json()); app.post('/validate-receipt', async (req, res) => { const { receipt } = req.body; // Validate receipt with Apple/Google servers const isValid = await validateReceiptWithStore(receipt); if (isValid) { // Store purchase data in database await storePurchaseData(receipt); res.json({ success: true }); } else { res.json({ success: false }); } }); const validateReceiptWithStore = async (receipt) => { // Placeholder for actual validation logic return true; }; const storePurchaseData = async (receipt) => { // Placeholder for storing data logic }; app.listen(3000, () => console.log('Server running on port 3000')); 2. Client-Side Validation: Send the receipt to your backend for validation after a purchase. const validateReceipt = async (receipt) => { try { const response = await fetch('https://your-server.com/validate-receipt', { method: 'POST', headers: { 'Content-Type': 'application/json', }, body: JSON.stringify({ receipt }), }); const result = await response.json(); return result.success; } catch (error) { console.warn('Validation error', error); return false; } }; useEffect(() => { const purchaseUpdateSubscription = RNIap.purchaseUpdatedListener(async (purchase) => { const receipt = purchase.transactionReceipt; if (receipt) { const isValid = await validateReceipt(receipt); if (isValid) { // Complete the purchase await RNIap.finishTransaction(purchase, false); } } }); return () => { purchaseUpdateSubscription.remove(); }; }, []); Using IAP Data for Personalized User Experiences IAP data can be leveraged to personalize the user experience, making the app more engaging and tailored to individual preferences. Unlocking Features: Use IAP to unlock premium features. const [premiumUser, setPremiumUser] = useState(false); useEffect(() => { const checkPurchase = async () => { const purchases = await RNIap.getAvailablePurchases(); setPremiumUser(purchases.some(purchase => purchase.productId === 'com.example.premium')); }; checkPurchase(); }, []); return ( <View> {premiumUser ? ( <PremiumContent /> ) : ( <RegularContent /> )} </View> ); 2. Personalized Offers: Provide special offers based on past purchase behavior. const [specialOffer, setSpecialOffer] = useState(null); useEffect(() => { const fetchSpecialOffer = async () => { const purchases = await RNIap.getAvailablePurchases(); if (purchases.length > 0) { // Fetch special offer from backend based on purchase history const response = await fetch('https://your-server.com/special-offer', { method: 'POST', headers: { 'Content-Type': 'application/json', }, body: JSON.stringify({ userId: user.id }), }); const offer = await response.json(); setSpecialOffer(offer); } }; fetchSpecialOffer(); }, []); return ( <View> {specialOffer && <Text>{specialOffer.description}</Text>} </View> ); Conclusion Integrating IAP with other features in a React Native app can greatly enhance user engagement and revenue. By combining IAP with ads, syncing purchase data with backend services, and using IAP data for personalization, you create a more dynamic and user-friendly experience. Following these practices ensures that your app not only generates revenue but also provides value to your users, leading to higher satisfaction and retention.

            Troubleshooting Common Issues in React Native IAP

            Hi tech fellows, this is the third article in the React Native IAP series. Using in-app purchases (IAP) in a React Native app can be complex. Despite careful planning, various issues can arise during development and after deployment. This guide will help you troubleshoot issues in React Native IAP, ensuring a smoother experience for your users and fewer headaches for you. Implementing IAP (In-App Purchases) in a React Native App Best Practices for React Native IAP (In-App Purchases) 1. Network Issue Network issues are common, especially in mobile environments. These problems can interrupt purchase flows and frustrate users. Solution: Implement Retry Mechanisms Ensure your app can handle network disruptions gracefully by implementing retry mechanisms. For instance, if a purchase fails due to network issues, inform the user and provide an option to retry. 2. Interrupted Purchases Purchases can be interrupted for various reasons, such as app crashes or users closing the app mid-transaction. Solution: Handle Pending Transactions Check for and handle pending transactions when the app restarts. This ensures that any interrupted purchases are completed or properly reverted. 3. Receipt Validation Receipt validation is crucial to ensure that purchases are legitimate. However, developers often face issues with validation, leading to rejected transactions or fraud. Solution: Implement Server-Side Validation While client-side validation can be a quick check, server-side validation provides an additional layer of security. Here's a basic example of how you might handle this: Client-Side: Server-Side: 4. Product Configuration Issues Sometimes, products do not appear in your app because of misconfigurations in the app stores. Solution: Double-Check Configurations Ensure that your product IDs match exactly between your app and the store. Also, confirm that the products are approved and available for purchase. 5. Platform-Specific Bugs Bugs can be platform-specific, affecting either iOS or Android but not both. Solution: Test on Both Platforms Always test your IAP functionality on both iOS and Android. Utilize device simulators and real devices to cover a range of scenarios. Keep an eye on the library's GitHub issues page, as many common bugs are reported and discussed there. 6. User Cancellations Users might cancel purchases midway, leading to incomplete transactions. Solution: Handle Cancellations Gracefully Detect and manage canceled transactions by informing users and reverting any app state changes made in anticipation of the purchase. 7. Debugging Tools Debugging IAP issues can be challenging without the right tools. Solution: Use Debugging Tools Utilize debugging tools like Reactotron or Flipper for React Native. These tools help you log and inspect API calls, including those made by the react-native-iap library. 8. Updates and Deprecations Libraries and APIs are frequently updated, which can lead to deprecated methods and breaking changes. Solution: Keep Your Library Updated Regularly update the react-native-iap library and other dependencies. Check the library's documentation and changelog for updates and breaking changes. This ensures that your implementation remains compatible with the latest versions of React Native and the app stores' requirements. Conclusion Troubleshooting issues in React Native IAP involves addressing network issues, handling interrupted purchases, ensuring proper receipt validation, and managing platform-specific bugs. By implementing robust solutions and using appropriate tools, you can resolve common issues effectively, ensuring a smoother and more reliable purchase experience for your users. Regular updates and thorough testing across both iOS and Android platforms are key to maintaining a successful IAP system in your app.
