Do you struggle to find awesome candidates for important positions, only to have them turn down the job when offered? What’s going on?
A recent study from Top Echelon identified the top three reasons candidates turn down job offers—today, though, we’ll focus on the third reason: timing in recruitment. According to the study, 22 percent of job candidates turned down a job offer because the company took too long to make the offer.
Scheduling six or more individual interviews with a candidate may be fine if they all happen on the same day or at least in the same week. Hey, hiring the perfect candidate is important, and those interviews make all the difference! But when the interviews are spread apart four to eight weeks, then we have a problem. Because when you drag out the hiring process, three unfortunate things happen: you leave a bad first impression, your best candidates accept other offers, and you waste time and money. At NewConfig, we will help you fill each role with ease and confidence, so you can speed up your timing in recruitment.
