How do you measure your own performance?
If I called your current supervisor, what would they tell me about you?
Be honest and let the candidates know, “We have 1 role and 20 applicants”
Always follow-up with all candidates to let them know your decision
Remember, these candidates were all existing or potential customers for your company. Treat them
with the same level of respect as your paying customers. If you do not hire them, you do not know who
will. It is all about creating a great experience for the individual and when you say YES to the “One” and
NO to the many hopeful applicants, they will feel much better about your company! Cheers to happy
