Company culture starts during the interview process. Jane Pesch, a Principal with WinterWyman’s Finance, HR & Administrative division, breaks down how to give a positive candidate experience from the get-go in under 1-minute.
Some things that hiring managers can do to turn off a job seeker could be lack of politeness throughout the interview process, so things like keeping people waiting for a long period of time or not offering breaks throughout the interview. Other things would be general communication things like not acknowledging receipt of resumes received or following up after interviews to get them feedback.
If a hiring manager does things like this it can send a message to the candidate making them think that perhaps what’s happening in their interview process is going to be what the culture is of the actual company itself. This happened to me in an interview what’s going to happen to me when I’m actually there.
Keep the golden rule in mind. Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself.Candidate experience | Hiring top talent | Video | WinterWyman
