We’ve all been there. You work hard, have a series of interviews and then there is a sudden void of any feedback. Eventually after chasing the recruiter or the company directly, you are told that you have not been successful with little or any constructive feedback.
Clearly that is frustrating and can leave a negative impression for you of the company. It shows a lack of respect for a candidate’s time and doesn’t allow for them to learn from the experience.
Yet perhaps, that is fair enough. After all, you have given up your time too and allowed them the opportunity to potentially join the company. It is not your fault that they failed the interview, especially if they were unprepared or late.
Ultimately, we believe at Worldy People in always giving feedback both before and after the interview as much as we can. Sometimes, we are in the hands of the client, but this should not enable us to pass this off as an excuse. Credible business should dictate a general level of respect and politeness. And there is the old adage of today’s failed candidate is tomorrow’s client.
Treat people as you would want to be treated yourself. Fairly obvious, but shouldn’t that be the general rulebook we should abide to. Or maybe that is just too nice???
