If you’re a recruiter, you likely have a list of your favorite interview questions. But do the questions you’re asking really help you learn more about a candidate and their potential fit to the role you’re recruiting for?
Some clients we speak with here at GeneCoda® already have a front-runner candidate before their search launches. Often, companies find a prospect early on in the search process, which has come through advertisements or employee referrals.
Having a solid prospect is often welcome news because it ensures a quicker start. However, to ensure your company has located the best talent the market has to offer, it’s helpful to consider performing additional research to find more potential hires rather than go with the candidate who walks through the door first.
Like resumes for candidates, job descriptions are an employer’s chance to make a positive first impression on job candidates. Your tone, company details, and method of approach will determine how your candidates feel about your job posting, and by extension, your company.
