Our top candidate took another job, what happened?  

When you start interviewing a new potential employee, they are judging you as much as you are judging them. According to Indeed, the average candidate applies for up to 15 jobs a week and the average hiring process takes 3 to 6 weeks, from the time the candidate sends in their resume to the time they accept an offer. 

When there are delays in the interviewing process candidates start wondering why! Here are a few concerns delays bring up:

·        Is your company slow to make decisions?

·        How much red tape / bureaucracy is there in this company? 

·        Are they slow to answer customers’ questions, respond to special requests or price inquires, etc.?

To avoid these concerns, here are some things you need to do to make sure you have a solid interviewing process and put your company in a position to hire top candidates.
