The following are purely from my perception as someone who takes part in the recruitment process, you may have different opinions and the most important thing is, that is ok. On average I participate in up to 100 job postings a year and for many of those postings I actively participate in the screening and interview process, especially when hiring for managers or above.
I have noticed, wide differences in quality when the recruiting process is taking place, some good, some great and some, needing improvement.
- First and foremost, respect the candidates. We have told ourselves as an industry that there is a never ending line up of candidates and can treat the process of recruiting like a cattle ranch. Every submitted application is someone taking the time, rather long or short to say “hey! I want to work for you!”.
