The Hiring Process is a Two-Way Street

Reading through resumes, interviewing candidates, and narrowing down to the ideal few candidates are critical aspects of hiring a new employeeEmployers may feel like they are always in full control. But the job candidates have a significant amount of control as well.  The hiring process is a two-way street.  A company creates a concise list of ideal candidates. Likewise, the best job candidates usually have a few potential companies as strong candidates to hire them.

The Hiring Process is a Two-Way Street

Before selling your ideal candidate on the job, make sure that you are confident that they are the right candidate for your job position.  In order for you to convince your ideal candidates to choose your company, remember this:

While you are interviewing them, they are interviewing you. 

Can you convince them of why your job position is the best fit for them? How can their talents and skills have a positive contribution to your company?  Can you offer them unique benefits that no other company can come close to? If you want the strongest, most desirable job candidates to choose you over other job opportunities, you need to inspire them in your company’s values, goals, and mission.

The hiring process is a two-way street.  While those strong job candidates are in your presence, realize that they are assessing you just as much as you are assessing them.  Make a unique impression so that your company is at the top of their list.

    Is it a dream ? I am actively seeking a new position as a CFO in France for now more than 2 years and I had a lot of final interviews as the company only kept 2 candidates in order to choose one of them.
    This is a unique opportunity to ask all pending questions on the job or on the company before to have eventually to make a decision. We may then imagine that the discussion is very open and that the hiring process is a two way street. Don’t dream ! In Europe and more specifically in France , the lack of good opportunities makes that your very legitimate questions are very often considered as a too self confidence attitude and leads you to the second place….This will last as long as the number of good candidates for one position will be so high ! one advertising for a CFO job in France is bringing now between 150 to 300 accurate applications letters.
