If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Cam submitted. He's been working at a job for awhile, but recently overheard a hiring manager making fun of a candidate with autism right after an interview-not only awkward, but VERY unprofessional!
During our weekly live Office Hours on our YouTube Channel, we get lots of questions lots of questions around recruiters and best practices on reaching out and working with them.
Here are just a few highlights from some of our recent episodes around recruiters:
In this week's episode of "Well This Happened", we want to know what you would do if witnessed a hiring manager at your organization making fun of a candidate who they had just interviewed who had autism.
We want YOU to be the career coach and tell us which one is the RIGHT answer!
Think you know? Vote below, and stay tuned for later this week when we announce the right answer (and why the other ones are wrong).
Ever feel like the hiring managers at your company don’t respect what you do? Are you finding it hard to get candidates through your process because hiring managers aren’t making hiring a priority? Do your hiring managers act like you have a “candidate tree” in the backyard you can just pick from as needed? You are not alone. Recruiters often fail to get the trust and respect they need from the hiring managers they serve. In fact, many hiring managers don’t understand or appreciate what it takes to find top talent to fill their positions.
Some organizations, attempting to deal with shortages of candidates and much needed skills, are implementing “fast track” hiring. From my perspective, it’s come about 15 years too late. It has been needed for a long time. But because it’s now an emerging trend, it’s important to examine the implications for candidates.
