In the fast paced world of recruitment it can sometimes be easy to forget your manners and ensure that all candidates are treated with the same respect and courtesy.
It can be a long process to head hunt a candidate to fill a specific role, ensure the profile is a perfect match and employment history ticks all of the boxes. So what happens when contact is made and you are faced with a negative response – they just aren’t interested in the role? Using basic skills and responding with a thank you email at this stage is vital to ensure that when the candidate is ready to make the move they contact you – not someone else. It shows you respect and value their time, and an appreciation that they made the effort to respond. Ultimately, listening to your candidates is key.
