Recruitment and dating…
The recruitment process is a lot like dating in many ways. How? well, the end goal is the same. The end goal for both is to find someone who’s a good team fit.
With technology changing and evolving rapidly, online dating and online recruiting follow similar steps in the process.
1.The first stage interview = the 1st date
2.Keeping candidates “warm” and engaged = the follow up chat, usually via Whatsapp
3.Arranging the next stage in the interview process = will there be a 2nd date?
4.Catfishing (candidates pretending to be someone they are not)
7.The offer, will they accept? = will there be more dates?
8.The perfect match has been found, everyone’s happy
9.Rebate period … sometimes, things don’t work out
10.The fresh search … we go again!
