Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Phone
Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Recruitment is a very challenging job. We receive hundreds of applications for the open positions in the organization & it becomes really difficult sometimes, to keep a track on them. I would prefer a follow-up Mail by the applicant to keep track on the application. It helps to understand what exactly we were discussing (position/skill,etc.) & helps maintaining the communication thread for future opportunities.
Things That Impress You In A Candidate: I love talking & connecting to people with good communication & inter-personal skills. They seem very approachable & knowledgeable to me. A candidate with updated CV, with all the necessary details mentioned for the required job attracts my attention. Showing keen interest in the opportunity & organization is what I expect from a candidate interested for a particular role.
Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: To be considered for a job, candidate should have a well written CV with all the important details mentioned. His experience needed for a job, achievements in a particular role would help me to know how good he can be for a role I am hiring for. Educational details, Personal Details, Previous organizations he has worked for, Skill set/Expertise should be included.
Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: For me, following are things why I would disqualify any candidate-
- Poor/Unclear communication skills
- Lack of energy/interest in the opportunity
- Incomplete CV
- Poorly dressed
- Superficial knowledge
