Employers across the USA have positions to fill, cash to spend and benefits to offer. And even despite an improving economy, many companies still avoid hiring. After all, 38 percent of employers have positions open they just cannot find the right candidates to fill.
While employers think it should be easy to attract qualified candidates in a job market that’s hot, a few things go missing during the hiring process that steer away top candidates who could be the next best hire.
So what are they?
> Confusing job descriptions – Skip the “blah – blah” fancy words and overly long job descriptions that likely aren’t fully read. Candidates want general expectations of what their job task will be. Bullet points work great to outline this information.
> Time consuming application systems – While online application systems have made the hiring process seem like a breeze to many, is your application system convenient for candidates? Stick to a simple resume upload and yes/ no questions. Asking candidates to fill-in enormous text box of information often will leave half filled applications and the top candidates saying “forget it” to the job possibility all together.
> Too many interview – How many interviews did you hold for your last hire? More than three may be too many…. Often times, companies can’t “pull the trigger” on offering a job and continue to bring back the same final two or three candidates for five or six interviews. It begins to seem like the candidate is a professional interview and just doesn’t get a salary for spending hours of their time in your office. Respect each candidates time. Avoid canceling interviews last minute, likewise, leaving them waiting in the lobby for hours on end before an interview.
> No seeing of growth for the company – Hiring is a two way street. Candidates may not see a potential for growth with the company interviewing with. Change that by presenting a growth and futuristic forecast with a 1, 5, and 10 year business plan. Prove your company is worth working for.
