7 Ways To Provide Candidates With A Good Recruitment Experience
An interview experience indicates whether the interview has been successful or not. When looking at it from a candidate’s perspective, the interview experience defines the complete process experience from the first interaction with the recruiter till the final outcome of the interview process. Providing candidates with a good hiring experience gives them insight into the organization's processes, affects their decision to join the company, and is critical. In addition, a candidate is likely to be interviewing at multiple companies, and providing candidates with a good experience encourages the candidate to join the company if offered a role.
Below are the 7 ways you can provide candidates with a great recruitment experience, encouraging them to join your company and become your next new hire.
Keep an open two-way communication
Communication is the key to making things work out. Having open two-way communication with candidates regularly gives them a positive impression of the company. For example, explaining about the company and the role clearly, gives them clarity on what would be the expectation from this role. Furthermore, asking candidates for their availability for the interview gives them the impression that their time and availability are valued.
Additionally, keeping in touch with your candidates throughout the process is also a sign of professionalism.
Provide a well-explained job description
Recruiters must provide candidates with a job description that explains the duties and responsibilities that the candidate is expected to perform if selected for this role. This helps in setting the right expectations about the role before the further stages of the recruitment process. This job description will ensure that the expectations of the candidate about the role and the expectations of the employer from the employee are in sync with each other.
Follow a great hiring process
Ensure that candidates are communicated about the complete hiring process and the multiple steps they may need to follow, Eg: organization's assessment test, multiple interview stages, etc. A clear, structured hiring process shows that the company invests in hiring and ensures that processes in the company are properly followed.
Inform candidates about expectations from the role
Candidates must know the company's expectations from the candidate joining this role, even before joining the company. This will enable them to make an informed decision regarding whether this role is aligned with their professional goals or not. For example, if you wish to hire a social media marketer, clearly inform the candidate that they will be required to engage in activities like posting on social media accounts, engaging with other social media accounts, social media analytics, etc.
Ask candidates if they have concerns
Addressing employees' concerns on time ensures that they have less doubts about finally joining the company after the interview. While communicating with candidates, ask them if they have any concerns that need to be addressed regarding the working environment, working culture, etc.
Tell candidates about your values
During the interview stage, a candidate will try to look at the company’s values and whether they are in sync with their values. Examples of company values include honesty, fairness, equal opportunity and inclusion.
Ensure that there is seamless coordination of the human resource executive/other decision-makers at the company with the candidate. For example, coordinate with the candidate during processes like sending the required offer letters, letter of intent, etc., document verification of the candidates’ educational qualifications, etc.
