Many of Select International’s clients are in an enviable situation from a hiring perspective; they are the employer of choice in their area, or they have thousands of applicants for a small number of job openings. Under these circumstances, organizations are interested in utilizing hiring processes that facilitate an easier review of large volumes of applicants. However, streamlining internal intake procedures shouldn’t translate to making the process overly burdensome or less informative for candidates. Although organizations won’t be able to place all job applicants, it’s still in their best interest not to discourage candidates from applying or annoy them in the process. Sure, plenty of applications aren’t worth a thorough examination by the HR team, but there is a fine line between implementing job-relevant screening procedures and alienating the most talented job seekers due to stringent application requirements.
