Don’t Scare Away Great Hires In Your Industry

When it comes to hiring there are a few different things that every potential employer should think about. The first is of course how to avoid scaring away talent in your industry. It is not all that uncommon for employers to scare away talent with unrealistic expectations, too much of a workload, or large requirements. These factors can make a world of difference when it comes to the hiring process as a whole. There are a few different ways to prevent scaring away top talent and knowing how to keep these candidates coming is the best way to prepare.

  1. Create Realistic Expectations- the first thing any employer needs to do is create realistic expectations. This means set standards and goals that are attainable. Do not require that every candidate have a doctorate in microbiology unless it is crucial to their ability to complete the job. Make sure that the qualifications that you need are essential to the job. Though making outlandish requirements can help weed out excess applications, it can also scare away good potential candidates.
  2. Make Sure You Are Clear- another way to scare off potential candidates is by not stating clearly what the requirements of the job are. One great way to get the proper candidates is to tell these individuals just what will be required of them and what will not. Being very clear about expectations and what is required is the best way to insure that you are getting the right candidates for the job at hand. It is important that you clearly state what is required so that if a candidate does not feel they can complete what is require by the job, they can go without applying.
  3. Give Ample Time For Interviews- the last way you can scare off potential candidates is by not giving them enough time to show you their talent. If a talented individual believes that they will be rail-roaded and not given enough time to show their talent, they are less likely to apply. It is important that you give ample time for interviews, take the time to listen to what a candidate has to say, and that you give them an adequate platform from which to show their talent and abilities.

Keeping these issues in mind when embarking on the hiring process is the best way to insure you only get the applicants you want and that you do not end up losing tons of applicants in the process. Taking the time to understand what a potential employee may see in your hiring process and knowing how to go about hiring is the best way to insure you do not scare off great employees
