Many hiring managers still view the interview stage as a top-down, one-way process where the candidate is being assessed and the interviewer is asking all the questions. But things have changed.

Communication is undoubtedly one of the cornerstones of great recruitment, but it’s also something recruiters seem to get wrong often. Candidates complain about slow communication, lack of responses, and generally, mismanaged expectations. When you consider how many processes a recruiter is managing at any given point, it’s no wonder that good communication practices are left by the wayside. For those managing a high volume of vacancies, recruiting email templates can be a powerful tool to keep your candidate communication in check and help you attract better talent.

A job description with a standard job title and a long list of duties and responsibilities is not just downright boring but also ineffective.
Imagine an online matrimony site that says, “If you are good looking, have an attractive package and an EMI-free home along with a luxury car. Please get in touch”. This is exactly how most job descriptions are actually drafted. If you think about it, no organization wants to hire a generic person. Every employer is looking for a talented professional.
