This post by Lou Adler gives insights into the art of influencing the Hiring Manager.
He stresses on the point of increasing the involvement levels both during screening and during the interview process.
Other points of note – do a solid preliminary screening. Get detailed example of the major accomplishments of the candidate. It surely helps to know more.
And the final note – Recruiters must Lead the Hiring Process – primarily by conducting a solid interview and then following it up with a thorough debriefing session.
Wonderful post some great insights. Now, to start with I would like to implement atleast 10% of what the post says in our processes.
