Hiring Headaches: What You're Doing to Turn Job Seekers Off

hiring headaches

If you’ve ever been single, pursuing a relationship of some kind, then you know how unsettling the process can be. One person tries to impress the other, communication flies back and forth, and if, at any point, one person thinks he or she is doing well but the other does not, everything breaks down. The expectations of the eager person are crushed, and the other person moves on in pursuit of something better. 

Job seekers face similar perils when job hunting. There’s the anxiety of the unknown and the reality that rejection will probably happen before the search is over. But the responsibility of presenting well does not strictly fall upon the pursuing job applicant—companies have an obligation to attract the best candidates, too. And not all companies do a good job of putting their best foot forward.

As our co-founder Patrick Clark told Mashable last May: "It's infinitely more expensive to acquire a new customer than it is to keep an existing customer happy. The best way to keep them with you is to pay attention to them.” The following three qualities are integral to creating a customer-first culture within your organization.

The Intersection of Hiring Managers and HR Automation

In everyday life we make choices. From the gas station we choose, to the brand of clothing we wear, to the grocery stores at which we shop, we somehow concluded that these buying decisions are a right fit for us. As creatures of habit, we tend to stick with our choices – that is until something better comes along. We’re then free to change our mind and try something new. In our work life however, we don’t always have that freedom.
