Improving candidate experience doesn’t require much time; significant expertise or resources, unlike other elements that contribute to a successful employer brand. Here are a few ways to help you improve your candidate experience.
Don’t waste candidates’ time
Many candidates will give up on a position they have applied for if they don’t hear back from the company after two weeks of applying. This due to the never-ending possibilities that a candidate can have. If it takes you too long, candidates will choose an employer who appreciates their time more than you do.
Set clear expectations
For an applicant, the worst thing is not knowing what the next step will be. Will he/she be contacted by an HR manager by next week? Will he/she ever get an answer? In order to solve this problem, you must let the candidate know what they should expect in terms of communication immediately in the job ad.
Get feedback from the candidates
He easiest way to know what needs improvement is to ask the candidates that have already had an experience with the process. A great example is a poll. A poll can be sent to all candidates that have a had an initial interview and ask them about their thought regarding the hiring process so far.
Have a clear process for every step in hiring
You should let your candidate know exactly what steps are included in the hiring process, as they apply. A well-informed job applicant is more likely to be satisfied with the company. Even though transparency should be a core element for your company, transparency in hiring is essential in order to provide a good experience for your candidates.
