We are serious about adding the best talent to join our team. This means we’re always open to unique ideas that we might want to absorb into the Infinite Promotional Solutions hiring experience. These are some of the most appealing suggestions we’ve heard:
- Increased Transparency: Waiting to hear back from a company after you’ve submitted a résumé can be a stressful time, but it doesn’t have to be. Software exists that allows a candidate to see when his or her application has been reviewed. There are also programs that let hopefuls know how many other people are applying for a position, so they can gain a sense of how long it might take for their résumés to be reviewed, and how much competition there will be.
- Helpful Feedback: It’s difficult to find out you won’t be getting a job you applied for, but the pain could be lessened by helpful feedback. Some hiring managers are giving applicants the chance to post their résumés to a forum that would allow peers to make suggestions and comments. Another popular idea is already an Infinite Promotional Solutions practice – write blogs that give interview tips to prospective team members.
By making the application process as pleasant for candidates as possible, not only do we create goodwill with our new colleagues, but those who don’t join Infinite Promotional Solutions feel good about us as well. For more about interviewing, like us on Twitter.
