Jobvite Blog: The Place Where Recruiters Gather

3 Ways to Gather Candidate Feedback

You can employ the most advanced ATS systems and software available, but how do you know that you’re maximizing candidate engagement through the hiring process? Hiring the right people is not just about finding the right person; it’s about being able to convince them that you’re a company worth working for.

Even though gathering feedback is well worth the effort involved, in many cases it is time-intensive and clunky, making for an awkward experience for everyone involved. Here are three ways to gather the feedback you need to entice the candidate that you want.

1. Send a Survey

This may be somewhat awkward if the interview didn’t go well, but make it a part of your recruiting process to automatically send a survey to the candidate asking them to rate the experience. Instead of asking generic questions about whether they were comfortable, ask more direct questions pertaining to brand awareness, how the pre-interview process went (phone calls, emails, etc.) and the behavior of the interviewee (whether they were on time, asked relevant questions, etc.). By asking these types of questions while the interview is still fresh in the applicant’s mind, you’ll be better able to shape the format for future sessions.
