Watch Out For An Inflated Ego–Editor’s Notes, May 7, 2012

It’s not surprising, but it is regrettable, that hiring managers and HR professionals appear to be on a neverending ego trip.

Their treatment of job candidates of late leaves much to be desired in the way of common courtesy and simple professional manners. We know that they don’t have time to respond to all of the resumes that they receive, but their correspondence with candidates they are interested in displays a remarkable lack of understanding.

It’s easy to forget the other person when you’re really,really busy. (Not an excuse, simply a fact.) However, most HR and hiring managers are over whelmed because they are not using the right tools, or a sustainable system. Like any business process, hiring should have a fine-tuned system that helps them to hire the right people, and leave everyone with a great experience. You never know when these candidates may become potential customers, vendors or suppliers!
