Problem: Double the usual number of active searches for our clients + double the usual number of active applicants seeking work. How can we make the hiring process more engaging and user-friendly for our candidates, given these increased demands?
Solution: For select openings, we’re using a new tool that gives you a better opportunity to communicate with us at your convenience, tell us more about your interest and your qualifications, and receive quicker feedback. Watch for email invitations to complete a digital interview as a next step.
We’ve been using these recorded audio interviews for about two weeks. They’ve already been a success! One applicant whose résumé seemed not quite strong enough for an Inside Sales position convinced me through his concise and informative responses. He has an interview with my client next week! Another applicant whose résumé seemed not quite strong enough for a blended accounting and administrative support position shared pertinent details that wouldn’t be on her résumé. She convinced me with her recorded responses! She completed the recorded interview a week ago, interviewed in person with me on Monday, met with the client on Wednesday, and could well have an offer on the table before the snow starts this weekend.
When you apply for an advertised opening and receive an email invitation for a phone-based next step, we hope you’ll welcome the opportunity to tell us more ~ and convince us!
