How The Best Recruiters Prepare Candidates For Sendouts


If you’re sending candidates to interviews and they’re not getting hired, it may be that your hiring manager could use help with their interview skills and probing for adequate information, or that your candidate didn’t present well despite being a strong sendout.

One way to mitigate both circumstances? Prep your candidates. It may seem like one more time-eater on your already overfull to-do list, but consider this: Helping your sendouts prepare for interviews can reduce your sendouts per hire by as much as 30 percent. That means you’re setting up fewer interviews and spending less time going back out for searches to replace the candidate that didn’t fit, for whatever reason.

And a prepared candidate not only presents better, they can actually help weak interviewers by using their knowledge to subtly guide the interview.
