Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: LinkedIn
Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Phone contact. Before anything else, I need to know the ins and outs of the candidate's motivations and their requirements. As a result, I will set up a phone call at the candidates convenience and run through, in detail, the specifics of what it is they are looking for. This will help save us both a lot of time in the long run, and will reduce the risk of any last-minute fall out later in the process!
Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Honesty. Punctuation. Professionalism. Honesty. Punctuality. Detail. Honesty. Someone who will come back to me asap if they miss a call or get an urgent email from me!
Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Relevant qualifications. Relevant experience. Their short/long term goals. Their contact information!
Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Poor spelling and punctuation. Someone unresponsive for days. No clear instruction as to what they specifically want from their next role. A poor attitude and work ethic. False information.
Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes
