Part 1: Delivering a Remarkable Candidate Experience

Are you remarkable?  Absolutely!

What about your candidate experience?

Transform your candidate experience and make it remarkable by applying the same usability principles used in E-Commerce.  Start by reviewing your hiring process and identifying the obstacles the candidate faces while trying to convert, or in this case, apply for a position.

  • Does your career site answer, “What’s In It For Me”?
  • Does it communicate why someone should pick you?  Expand on the content in your careers section to include testimonials and videos about the  company culture, benefits, and mission.
  • Is there one-click access to apply?  Make the button big, bold, and beautiful.
  • Answer “now what?”  Is it clear what you are asking them to do, how they need to do it, and what happens next?
  • Do they have to type everything in?  How frustrating!  Provide functionality to parse their contact information from a social profile, and/or resume parsing to fill in an application.
  • Provide help via telephone, email, support wizard, live chat; SOMETHING.
