The Method of Building a Strong Candidate Experience

The Method of Building a Strong Candidate Experience

The candidate experience you provide says a lot about how your company values its employees. It’s an indication for potential new hires of how they’ll be treated if they become an employee. To avoid jeopardizing hiring top talent, just treat your candidates like humans. Treat them the way you’d expect to be treated in their shoes.

During this webinar, we’ll be walking through a few of the programs and processes that Cara and the team at BuzzFeed utilize as part of their overall candidate experience which benefits recruiters, our hiring managers and business leads, and most importantly, our candidates.
