What is Candidate Management?

Candidate Management refers to overseeing, building and maintaining relationships with candidates.

Candidate management is a crucial component of every recruiter’s role, with both active and passive candidates.

The relationships that recruiters build with candidates allow them to develop a diverse pool of talent and to exercise good judgment when putting candidates forward for job vacancies. Ultimately, candidate management allows recruiters to make better matches between candidates and clients.

It’s important for recruiters to invest one-on-one time in order to create relationships with candidates. Once these relationships are established and a recruiter has a strong talent pipeline, their candidate management activities can be automated using a good CRM System.
