Recruiting: Candidate Experience
Transcript of Recruiting: Candidate Experience
Before In-Person Interviews
Usually the Recruiter and the hiring manager have both phone interviewed (or Skyped) with a candidate before they decide that a candidate should come in to the office and meet some of the team in person. We like to take a few extra steps to make sure the candidate is ready!
This is the most important and meaty part of the candidate experience. It's really important to the candidate's overall experience.

Be Prepared. It's important to know a little bit about the candidate before you meet them. *SCENARIOS
