The article, ‘7 Crucial (but Missed) Ingredients for a Great Candidate Experience’, is written by Adrie Smith and dives into the topic of how to ensure a pleasant journey for candidates during the hiring process.

With social media and online forums, it’s now far easier for people to recount their experiences, both good and bad, to a worldwide audience. If their experience is enjoyable, they are sure to tell others. After all, most online reviews are either five star or one star, there’s not much in the middle. This makes it doubly important for recruiters and HR departments to rethink their application process to ensure a positive candidate experience. Adrie Smith’s tips include:

  • Reach out without any delays
  • Record important information on your candidate profiles
  • Outline your hiring process in the job description
  • Share the LinkedIn profiles of the interviewers ahead
  • Outline what candidates can expect after each step
  • Keep in touch in between offer acceptance and onboarding
  • Be open to giving and receiving feedback
