After ticking all these checkboxes, the candidate has to be sharply negotiated and successfully hired. If not, the whole process has to get repeated. This requires a lot of time and effort!

Don’t worry, we have got you covered! We are pioneers in providing high-caliber candidates to support business growth and achieve organizational goals. This blog provides insights of common hiring mistakes that employers make while hiring candidates.  

Here are some of the common mistakes done while boarding talents. 

Mistake #1: Never trust the first impression

Yes, you read that right! Never judging the candidate from the first impression. It may misguide you throughout the hiring activity and there are chances you might lose high-caliber candidates in the selection process. Also, there are other congestions too!

Where a bad hire can lead you to-

  • Trusting them because they seem to be good conversationalists. But it doesn’t mean they will have good work ethics.
  • Resume may look crystal clear but it doesn’t mean their personality will have a good mesh with the other team members. 
  • The individual may lack experience but you can see their goals and work ethics suit the position. 
  • Some may talk much about themselves but it doesn’t mean they keep their words with work.

Mistake #2: Stop glorifying the Job

As a recruiter, it’s your responsibility to fill the job posting but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should try too hard to convince the potential candidate. Stressing the candidate with ‘how great the job will suit you’ may guide the candidate to feel that you have trouble in filling the position. This case could become even worse if the applicant has competitive experience. You can still talk about the excitement of getting the job but to some extent or this will turn into a major red flag for the position. You may fail to fill top talents. 

Mistake #3: Not highlighting the work culture

Seems to be a minor one but it is a costly mistake. One of the greatest ideas to get the candidate’s attention is- including what’s appealing about the job position. Now, you don’t want to glorify the position anymore. Describe your company’s culture and tell them why it feels great for you to work there. Further, add more value by including other interesting stuff like perks, benefits, and flexibility. 

For instance, VDart is continuously evolving with great culture and mutual respect for each other. We are so proud to say that: VDart hasn’t fired any employees since the pandemic situation. Instead, we doubled our hiring numbers. Due to the economic crunch, several companies are forced to lay off their employees, but VDart hasn’t laid off any of their employees during the pandemic situation. Know more about VDart culture. 

Mistake #4: Not making use of social media platforms

A recent survey suggests that- around 80% of members drive major business decisions. Also, the chances of getting a job through LinkedIn is 71%. All these stats make us understand the majority of the qualified candidates are scoping out jobs through social media platforms. Now, the question is- how effective are you with social media platforms? 

  • Your profile needs to be updated with the latest information about your company.
  • Make sure all your content is engaging with your followers.
  • Ensure the job application procedures are simple to apply.
  • Make use of technology like chatbots to make your hiring process easy. 

Mistake #5: Ignoring diversity

Teams with diverse backgrounds are normally more creative and productive. The reason is that the individuals originate from various backgrounds and skillsets. The experiences over the years add more value to produce wider thoughts. The outcome of such teams generates different and helpful ideas for the betterment of the organization.
