WHAT TO ASK CAN­DI­DATES WHO DE­CLINE JOB OF­FER

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

Ev­ery com­pany gets re­jected by

job can­di­dates, and you’re missing a big op­por­tu­nity if you don’t ask why they did it. The next time you get a “No, thank you” call or email, ex­plain that there are no hard feel­ings and dig deeper for more in­for­ma­tion.

Fo­cus on ques­tions like: What did

you see as the pos­i­tive as­pects of the role? What were your con­cerns about the role? What were the most im­por­tant fac­tors in the de­ci­sion you made? What feed­back or sug­ges­tions do you have about your in­ter­views, in­ter­view­ers, and the in­ter­view process it­self? Can you pro­vide feed­back or sug­ges­tions for the hir­ing man­ager, hu­man re­sources, or the or­gan­i­sa­tion over­all?

If you don’t so­licit feed­back from

peo­ple you’ve in­ter­viewed, they may give that feed­back pub­licly, like on a web­site such as Glass­door.
