I typically start with a small chat, then thank them for their interest in our posting followed up an introduction of my own. I then explain the purpose and process on this preliminary interview. Talk about the position/client and move into asking questions about their resume. The questions are typically focused on filling in any gaps or areas that need elaborating. Next I give an opportunity for the candidate to ask questions. Once answered, I conclude with next steps. I provide them with my contact information and a general timeline of when to get information regarding the next steps.
I call/email the candidate. Thank them for their interest and time in applying for the position and inform them their application will not be moving forward at this time. Should anything change I will be in touch.
Successfully matching candidates and clients is thrilling and noble work. Most of us need to work to live and being part of that is rewarding. Clients need to find that puzzle piece that will make their business successful or less stressful which is most satisfying.
I love a variety.
I have specialized knowledge and experience in agricultural roles. I use my network to identify the most suitable candidates for a particular role.
My favorite interview question is “What would you say is the most proud moment in your career history that is not listed on your resume?”
Based on my experience, the key element that contributes to a successful recruitment process is my personal connection with each candidate and the client. This improves communication and sets up a successful search.
