Seeking employment is an intensely personal process. Job candidates “put themselves out there” and hope to be treated with respect. In fact, the Society for Human Resource Management found that how you handle candidate rejections matters. A recent article says: “How applicants feel they were treated, whether or not they ultimately get the job, is critically important to a company’s brand.”
When candidates are rejected in a dismissive manner — or worse, they never hear back from you at all — that news travels fast. Whether it’s through social media or word of mouth, potential candidates will get wind of your hiring process.
Applicants took the time to apply and showed interest in your company. Why would employers want to squash that interest by ignoring them?
Improve your approach quickly, responsively, and enthusiastically with an automated system that nurtures your candidate relationships — and keep them in the top talent pipeline for other opportunities.
