6 Things your Candidates Want you to Stop Doing


If your hiring process is hampered by a lack lustre talent pipeline and a steady drop-off of candidates, it needs an overhaul. Pay attention to what your candidates want and stop doing these six things now to improve your talent acquisition success:-

Posting vague job adverts : Attention grabbing job titles that bear no resemblance to the job description, an absence of salary details and job posts that provide little or no information about career development and flexible working will contribute to your growing candidate drop-off rates. Today’s job seekers prioritise job security and flexible working and will check your company out online to verify your claims about career prospects and company culture. An analysis of your most successful job posts will help your business to align your future vacancies with the expectations of your talent pool.
