Does your hiring process take too long? Are you unsatisfied with your candidates? Have you ever felt that you are in a rush to hire? Have you ever been influenced by a biased team member? Most companies have the above challenges, yet they are not aware of it. Here are some tips for hiring top candidates.
Clear job description
The job description (JD) is the most crucial element in the hiring process, it is how job seekers learn more about the position. But most of the time, the person who writes the JD doesn’t know about the skills and experience level it requires, and the accurate keywords relevant to the position. So it is important to pay attention to these details. Talk to your team members about what kind of skills and experience you are looking for and make sure the job description is current, accurate, and reflects the requirements and keywords related to the position. If not, you may receive an influx of irrelevant resumes.
There are many tools and methods that can ease your hiring process, but it is important to use the most appropriate hiring tool for you. For example, try a tool like Unnanu Hire that helps from publishing the job to the onboarding process. Use the applicant tracking system and features like Resume Auto Validation to evaluate resumes, schedule interviews, and communication with the candidates.
Just calling candidates for interviews isn’t enough, it is very important to get ready for this process. Otherwise, you may end up with an unfit candidate. So before scheduling interviews, check who will conduct the interview and their availability, check whether others are on board, and decide on the process. Make sure everyone is aware of the hiring timeline and the deadlines.
When you decide your best candidate for the job opening, do not settle on just one candidate. Stay in touch with a few of the top candidates. Let them know that they are in the consideration process until one of them takes the offer and gets on board with the company.
