1.Delaying a Decision
Candidates are often interviewing with more than one company, so if they are a great catch, they may be snapped up before the company makes a decision. This is usually a side effect of multi-stage interviews and waiting for feedback from a number of managers.
2. Unclear Expectations on Both Parts
Being absolutely clear about the company’s intentions, wage compensation and benefits is vital to avoid any unexpected surprises at the end of the process. Let the candidate know your timeframes for each stage and when they can expect news.
In addition, the hiring company must know absolutely what they’re looking for in a new-hire. They need to understand where the organisation is lacking and what kind of experiences and knowledge needs to be introduced.
3. Culture vs. Skill
Although the culture of a company is important, don’t be too put off if they aren’t an immediately perfect fit. Your skilled and experience candidate may be able to adapt to the ethos of a new company and be an asset to the firm.
4. Validate Your Sources
During the interview process, speak to the candidate’s references and verify their experiences. If they have tangible evidence of previous successes, ask to see them and speak to other people involved during the projects.
