It is important to conduct the recruitment process in a way that is fair and transparent. If even one of your candidates for an open position has a feeling that the recruitment process is unfair, the candidate will get a negative view of your practice and may even vent their frustrations online, which could damage the reputation of your dental office.
This is why the candidate experience is so very important. Candidates who take part in the recruitment process will network with each other and let others know about their experience. This is especially so if it is bad. By doing this, many people will be put off from applying for any jobs in future. This may mean that you will miss out on the best talent and make it harder for you to fill open positions with the best candidates in future.
What measures can you take to improve the candidate experience? Here are just a few tips to help you on your way.
Communicate with Your Candidates
There is nothing worse from a candidate’s point of view when the employer fails to respond to a candidate’s application. Candidates often spend hours on their application, and if they don’t even receive a polite email back, it can be hard for them to accept. This is why you should keep each candidate up-to-date with the progress of their application.
Tips for Candidates for the Future
For those who don’t make the cut, it is important that you offer tips on how they can improve for the future. By doing so, you will be able to leave a positive impression on the candidate and they may apply for future positions that may become available. This will then save on recruitment costs in the future.
