Recruiting is difficult enough without candidates that appear and disappear like a balloon at 60,000-feet.
How do we combat this latest joy? Well, let us provide a methodology to resolve the dilemma of these oh-too-frequent ethereal candidates.
Firstly, what are the triggers of this behavior?
So, if these are some of the triggers what are the cures?
Conduct a gap analysis consisting of 2 audits:
When do you reach out to a candidate? Current communication milestones may look like this:
Is that enough? When are you losing them?
Understanding how you communicate is just as important. Are you using these communication platforms?
At what points in the process? To achieve what? How often?
What are you measuring?
While these are important metrics, does the candidate care? How can candidate satisfaction be measured?
The only thing a candidate cares about is time to interview. So, if you do track this how are you improving this metric over time?
There may be hidden power in your current tech stack that is not currently being used, that can easily be turned on. Once the outcomes of the communication audit are measured, establish how to use your current technology to address the misses. This may mean buying an extra module or having an SME enhance the current setup.
These audits give you the roadmap to a solution.
Are there ways to increase the touchpoints within the current tech stack and process without extending internal resources further? If not, there may be a need to embrace the growing number of text and chatbot vendors that are filling the RMA space.
This is a growing space that focuses on candidate experience and thus inherently exorcises the ghosting candidate.
Using such tools or adopting the modules within your current tech stack enables you to differentiate yourself. This differentiation -and the power of the technology application - will combat ghosting.
These demographic and technological changes are not a fad. We need immediacy and waiting days/weeks to find out if you can qualify for a job is just too long. Candidates of all ages see WAIT as a 4-letter word of pronounced vulgarity.
The RMA offering is relatively new and sparingly used, but soon it will be expected and commonplace.
If ghastly candidate apparitions are populating your day these audits are the key to your future sanity and company’s revenue growth.
