The candidate interview experience is an essential component of the hiring and interview process that helps define what candidates think about your company. The candidate experience begins when you post your job application online into the interview and through the onboarding process.
If your company is spread out, fully remote due to COVID-19 or has locations across the world, it can be challenging to build rapport with qualified candidates.
Here are Ninja Gig’s top hiring tips to help ensure that remote candidates have a great experience with your company during the entire interview process.
- Stand out from the crowd with a compelling job description
- Tell job seekers about your company and list your values in the online job posting
- Consider adding interviewer bios and videos to your site with a link so they can learn more before applying and during the hiring process
- When communicating with applicants, add pertinent company information to your emails
- Connect through video when hiring
- Ask questions that acknowledge candidates and let them share about themselves
- Treat candidates like customers
- Always personalize communication with applicants
- Say thank you
- Always compensate for screening tasks
- Provide constructive feedback if you turn down applicants
These simple yet effective hiring and interview techniques can help companies find the right remote candidates for their organization.
