Why Interview feedback is so important
Interview feedback, whether it is positive or negative, it is crucial during the hiring process.
Why it is important for the candidate:
Property Managers are busy people we all know that they have offered their time and effort and providing feedback shows you value them and also says something about your business values
Silence, no feedback speaks volumes, they will form their own feedback if they hear nothing, this will most likely be negative, along with a negative opinion of the company. Word of mouth is a powerful thing
Remember being a junior in the industry? Look where you are now, this feedback can go a long way in shaping you as a professional in the industry, everyone has to start somewhere
Why it is important to you as an employer:
Everyone should walk away wanting to work for you, if feedback isn’t given, or given too late then this will form a negative opinion of your company, creating a bad reputation in the industry
You can build your own talent pool of candidates who may be suitable in the future, they will think of you highly if you give them efficient, constructive feedback and you can hire them in years to come, once they have gained more experience and qualifications
The candidate is going through your interview process, which means they get a real insight into the company’s internal processes, in the candidate’s mind, if it’s taking you over a week to come back to them, what else is it taking you a week to do?
How to give constructive feedback?
The main thing is, to be honest, use the real reasons they aren’t suitable and deliver it in a positive way, this means they can improve for their next interview, and gain the experience they may be lacking, and in the future, they may be the right person for you
