Selecting Candidates for Job Interviews
The job interview is one the most important part of the recruitment process. It is the only time when you can have a long conversation with a candidate and explore whether they are able and willing to do the job. It is also a time for you to assess if he or she will fit well into your company’s culture. The job interview offers you a better sense of the candidate’s personality and character much more than reading a CV or an email from the candidate.
If you are not working with a recruitment firm, you will have to sort out the job applications that have come in as a result of your job advertisements, and shortlist suitable candidates.
If you are working with a recruitment firm, the firm will help you search and filter applicants for the job interview stage. The quality of their recommendations depends very much on the firm’s search strategy and experience. Ideally, you want to partner a recruitment firm that recommends candidates who are more just than a keyword match.
Experienced recruitment consultants seek to understand the client’s requirements thoroughly, have deep knowledge about the industry and the role, and take time to understand the candidates’ career aspirations. For example, at Evolution, all consultants are fully trained and equipped with knowledge in the technology area he or she recruits for. They are well-positioned to understand clients' requirements, as well as what candidates are looking for.
Depending on the agreement between your company and the recruitment firm, the recruitment firm may also receive and vet all job applications to select the most suitable applicants for you and your hiring team to interview. For example, through Talent Guaranteed, Evolution consultants review all job applications. Our clients receive progress updates throughout the search, summary of consultants’ initial phone interviews with the candidates, as well as market intelligence reports about compensation and benefit trends.
