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.

How to Use Pre-Screening Questions to Easily Identify Top Candidates

No HR professional wants to sort through endless stacks of resumes for every open position, but a manual hiring process often leads to this common conundrum.

To easily identify top candidates, pre-screening questions can be a powerful tool in the early stages of the hiring process. While it’s always important to clearly evaluate everything that a candidate can bring to the table, a few simple “Yes / No” questions at the very beginning can save you a lot of time and energy in the long run.

Vet-O-Matic: An ATS for the Serious HR Professional

Vet-O-Matic An ATS for the Serious HR Professional

Remember those persuasive infomercials that touted a machine that processed all kind of food ingredients into precisely what you wanted? That 1960’s machine was (and still is) “Veg-O-Matic”, one of the first food-processing appliances ever invented. Then there was “Super Bass-O-Matic 76”, made famous by Dan Aykroyd on Saturday Night Live in the 70’s. That machine was so efficient that you could “process the whole bass without scaling, cutting, or gutting.” Well, fast-forward 40+ years and you’ll find that the same phenomenon beginning to emerge in the HR space. Yes, a tool that ‘automatically attracts, vets, and presents quality applicants that meet your specific criteria instead of settling for large quantities of applicants that don’t.’ Enter “Vet-O-Matic”.

6 High-Impact Interview Questions for the Most Qualified Candidates

6_High_Impact_Interview_Questions

Does your interview process push candidates to effectively showcase their abilities? If top candidates are often turning down your job offers, it could be because you’re not challenging them enough during the hiring process, including your interview questions.

“Top candidates routinely dislike standard interviews because they find them tedious and predictable,” says Dr. John Sullivan on ERE.net. “Most interviews are simply not designed to allow a top candidate to show off their capabilities, ideas and innovativeness.”
