A good testament to a solid hiring process, is not only understanding the end of that journey, in essence, if you got the position for which you applied for or not, but also, have you been able to share who you are as an applicant, and learn a bit more about the organization you’re currently discussing the opportunity with (from the applicant perspective at least). Good barometers for a successful hiring process should be anchored on responsiveness, transparency, humanity and insight. There are indeed tasks that can be automated, but when creating a product that aims to streamline the hiring experience, I humbly suggest that those considerations be brought to the forefront. Every candidate is different, and ultimately forcing tools or some tasks on applicants may be more alienating than alluring. Hiring is ultimately about sharing stories, professional stories, where a person narrates their own journey. It’s fundamental there is an invested party listening, since that recruiter person, is the first bridge, the first contact into the organization. Technology should indeed empower or close the gap between the two parties, and not function as a de-humanizing tool. Interesting concept!
