Interview Feedback

Tuesday, 04 December 2012 08:26

In the current competitive job market applicants for jobs are plentiful and applying for a position is extremely time consuming in terms of adapting the CV and writing a bespoke supporting statement. However, feedback from some of my clients is that feedback after interview is often poor. It seems to me that if people have put a substantial effort into their application and prepared for an interview then the least a prospective employer can do is give quality feedback.

What do I mean by that? Well, if you are going to turn an applicant down then merely telling them someone else had more experience is not that helpful. In my view employers should systematically interview prospective employees against clear criteria and then they provide specific feedback which helps the unsuccessful applicant identify areas of development for their future. A little bit more work for the employer but a great bit of PR for your organisation where unsuccessful applicants will value their interaction with you. .
