3 Reasons to Give Unsuccessful Candidates Feedback

Posted: 2017-08-03 00:37:47

Here it is, a dream job, the wait for an interview but after all of that, a rejection! When it comes to interviews, there’s nothing worse than not knowing what went “wrong”. 4 out of 5 people in the UK claim that they have never received feedback after a face-to-face interview.

Without feedback, candidates can struggle to identify what they need to work on in future to secure that next dream opportunity so here’s three reasons why you should be giving feedback to your unlucky candidates.

Speedier Recruitment

If every company were to give feedback to every rejected candidate, every candidate should improve techniques and be able to nab an opportunity sooner in addition to companies being able to recruit better-suited candidates faster.

Candidate Skills Improvement

Candidates can more effectively work on their technique to better themselves meaning more people working, benefiting the workforce as a whole.

Company Reputation

With sites such as Glassdoor becoming more and more popular, if a company isn’t willing to give feedback, it can give candidates a poor view of a potential company and this may turn them off from applying for the company at all or applying for future roles that they are better suited for potentially losing valuable candidates.
