Daily Employer Tip: Providing Feedback to Candidates

January 7th, 2011 | Hiring Resources | No Comments »

While not every unsuccessful candidate will want to know why they weren’t hired, some will, and you’ll have to decide what that feedback will consist of if you decide to provide it. Keep the following tips in mind. Feedback should be objective rather than subjective and emotional. When possible, refer to notes you took during the interview rather than recalling details from memory. Most candidates want this evaluation so they know how to improve in the future, so try to be helpful and constructive. Try to be supportive and positive – remember that it takes some guts for someone to ask for feedback. Overall, be honest and open, leaving the candidate with a good impression of your company.
