As a board member for the Candidate Experience Awards and evangelist for improved talent acquisition technology – I’ve been in more than one conversation around improving the hiring process this year. The theme this spring was challenges in the interview process – more specifically, the phone screening process.
So, over the summer, I partnered with Video Interviewing Provider Wowzer and, surveyed hundreds of recruiters, hr professionals, hiring managers and candidates to get their thoughts on the interview process – what worked, what didn’t and what needs to be fixed.
We found out A LOT about the hiring process and confirmed recruiters are VERY busy!
- Recruiters have 22 open positions and 3100+ resumes to review at any given time
- A position is open on average for 45 days
- It takes someone 5 1/2 hours per opening just to schedule phone screens
- Video calling/meeting services have been well adopted by recruiters, hiring mangers & job seekers outside of interview process
Until the full report is finished, which will dive into impact on business and talent acquisition departments, we wanted to share some of the key findings about cost of interviewing via an infographic now!
