Quite possibly, hired candidates who were dissatisfied with the selection process will abandon the organization as soon as soon as they can, or earlier than they would have had the experience been more enjoyable."

Improving the Candidate Experience
To improve the candidate experience, you need to look at how your organization communicates with candidates at every step in the process. Once you determine the steps, it’s time to figure out the needed degree of communication and the best vehicle to provide it. Positive candidate experience is driven by the level of education and communication you provide candidates from when they first interact with your recruiting organization to when they leave your recruiting process (as a hire or a rejected candidate) and you need to focus both on process and engagement to be successful.

77% Think Less of Brands that Don’t Respond to Job Applicants

77% Think Less of Brands that Don’t Respond to Job Applicants | Candidate Experience Project | Scoop.it
If your organization is like most companies, you spend thousands of dollars annually on customer acquisition, marketing, and courting a positive public opinion of your corporate brand.

 

Great post by @ckforman and shared on @smartrecruiters

 

 

"They’re engaged in a stressful job search, and want to know if they’re making progress and where."

 

 

"You may even want to tell potential candidates that they can expect to hear back from you – even as you advertise your job openings: 96% of our survey respondents said they are more likely to apply if they know you’ll follow-up."

 

"However, the truth is that applicants are (usually) not involved in recruiting or human resources. They don’t know about the countless other applications you’ve seen for the same position."

Get Serious about the Candidate Experience

Organizations across the world are beginning to understand that the candidate experience is no longer just a recruiting issue but an overall business and branding issue.  A bad experience of a candidate not receiving a response on their application can have the same affect a bad customer service experience for a company.

Deloitte Exec: Why We Hire Only 3.5 Percent Of Applicants

Deloitte Exec: Why We Hire Only 3.5 Percent Of Applicants | Candidate Experience Project | Scoop.it

RecruiterLarry's insight:

The company, which employs roughly 50,000 professional services workers, most of them accounting, auditing or tax professionals, says it receives about 500,000 applications a year. And only about 3.5 percent -- 17,000 -- are hired.

That's an acceptance rate lower than Harvard's.

So how exactly does one make it into the ranks of that 3.5 percent? Jen Steinmann, picture above, is Deloitte's chief talent officer and oversees hiring. In an interview with AOL Jobs, Steinmann spoke frankly about what it takes to make it through the hiring process onto Deloitte's staff.

Does Candidate Experience Matter | Performance I Create

Does Candidate Experience Matter | Performance I Create | Candidate Experience Project | Scoop.it
RecruiterLarry's insight:

The candidate experience extends beyond getting people excited for an interview.Candidates that are treated well and have a great experience will endorse your company – whether they go to work for you or not. Candidates who are treated poorly will not only decide to eliminate you as a potential employer and take their talents elsewhere, but they will spread the word about their poor treatment throughout their network, both IRL and on social media.

What are candidates saying about your company?

Candidates, like consumers, respond in line with how they are treated, and if they believe they were ignored, under-appreciated or sidelined this will directly affect their opinion of the company on both a candidate and consumer level.
