Last month I got my ass handed to me for daring to consider that those who interview with a company, should pay for interview feedback. Not just normal interview feedback — like thanks, but no thanks — but something really good and developmental.
Most people think that idea is bad. They feel interview feedback should be free.
It’s not that I really want to charge people who interview a fee to get feedback, it’s just I think we could do so much better in terms of candidate experience, but we have to get out of our current mindset to shake things up a bit.
Could you get more interviews if you paid?
This all leads me to the next idea (hat tip to Orrin Konheim @okonhOwp) what if companies paid interviewees for their time?
We’ve built this entire industry on shared value. Organizations have jobs, candidates want jobs, so let’s all do this for free.
