Attracting talent to your organization seems like it would be pretty simple – just post a job description on your website or the job boards and let the resumes roll in. But how you create that job description plays a huge role in the quality of candidates who apply. There are several common mistakes companies can make when developing job descriptions that can impact the success of their recruiting. When you fail to provide sufficient information about the job and the type of person needed to fill it, attracting the right candidates becomes a huge challenge.
Interviews are an essential part of the hiring process. They give employers the chance to have far-reaching, insightful conversations with their job candidates about what they can bring to the company. In addition to talking about an individual’s education, experience, skills and ideas, the conversation will often turn to salary – and the interviewer must be prepared to have a meaningful, two-way conversation about the topic.
