How to attract candidates for an interview


There are countless articles on how interview candidates should behave in order to attract HR professionals. But what the opposite? Do you know how to get candidates to take your place? Especially in the field of IT, it is not easy for HR professionals, because the supply of work significantly exceeds the demand. So how about that?

Be authentic

An exaggerated formality in a company that actually has a relaxed corporate culture at the interview won’t get you anywhere. Conversely, being relaxed for an interview and then requiring a strict dress code and formal conduct may get you an employee, but it will definitely not keep you. This applies not only to the interview, but also to the writing job advertisement. He should be interested in the candidate, but it should already clearly indicate what corporate culture the future employee can expect.

Be honest and communicate

Honesty and directness are also related to authenticity. Answer the candidates’ questions directly and communicate with them during the individual rounds of the interview. Especially if they ask you a question. Ignoring human resources is one of the worst signals you can send to your candidates on behalf of your company.

Don’t worry about salary conditions

The next point begins in the writing of the advertisement or communication via social networks. Don’t ask about salary information. This will not only gain more potential employees, but will also save time for yourself and the candidates. There are, of course, several reasons for not stating a salary in the advertisement, but everything can be solved at least by stating the salary range in which you can move with the offer.

Engaging employees and especially the IT specialist is an increasing problem and there is definitely no prospect of improvement in the foreseeable future.

Remember that the candidate judges you as much as you judge him

Today it is no longer so common, but in some personalistech there is still a feeling that they are the ones who have the upper hand and can often behave arrogantly.

Of course, at the interview you need to find out if the candidate meets the requirements of the position. Nevertheless, it should rather be a conversation between equals and equals. Do not make job applicants a student in front of the board, you will definitely not move anywhere.

It is not easy to attract employees today, especially in the field of IT. Are you failing? Get advice from experienced HR professionals with experience in IT.
