Candidate Experience

Create an experience that engages your potential new hires throughout the selection process

Your perfect candidate could be located in any number of talent pools — passive candidates, active job seekers, or even entrepreneurs. Your recruiting strategy has to have a sourcing plan to gather candidates with the skills and experience you need, as well as engage them through the entire selection process. A sub-par candidate experience can deter applicants from accepting positions and even damage your reputation as an employer of choice. Learn how to design and implement an experience that engages the emotional, physical, and cognitive aspects of your potential new hires.
