Recruiting Practices Reflect on You

Great recruitment processes engage recruits from the start.

Chris Brablc, Marketing Guru for SmashFly Technologies, recently attended the RecruitFest event in Boston, and penned a blog about a session titled “The Candidate Bill of Rights.”  The session was led by recruiting industry professionals, Gerry Crispin, Charlie Judy, Chris Hoyt, Mike Ramer, and Jason Lauritsen .

Brablc writes that the session, “focused on what companies owe candidates during the recruiting process and how to better engage with them during it.” A few engagement ideas from the session include:

  • “Turn on auto-reply feature in your ATS to send an email when an applicant submits a resume.”
  • “Create a system where candidates can log in and see how their application is doing.”
  • “Include salary in the job description.”

Engagement is crucial during recruitment and Brablc presents some wonderful ideas for enhancing the perception of your company throughout the process. One suggestion for doing this is to “set expectations early.” If you reply to candidates right away, you will be seen as a highly responsive, organized company.
