Are you currently being ghosted?
Are you applying for positions directly and not hearing back?
How does that make you feel about the organisation?
Hiring managers, I wanted to share and give a friendly reminder that a guaranteed way to damage your employer brand is not to provide a professional experience when a job seeker is applying for a position with you.
This year more than ever emotions are heightened and the need to secure a new role may be greater than ever. Balancing the incredibly large volume of applications with the need to provide an experience that you would like to receive yourself is a challenge for any business.
3 simple tips to help give a great first impression:
1. Have adequate resources internally who have the time to dedicate to high volumes of applications & be able to respond & screen applications within a reasonable timeframe
2. Outsource the full recruitment process to a talent or search partner – ask your partners about their points of difference with candidate experience & process management
3. Engage a talent partner who is able to offer an unbundled service to manage job applications from start to shortlist
