Step 4 – Candidate preparation and schedule interview
We prepare the candidate with all the relevant information for them to have the best opportunity during the interview process. However, we never forget we’re working for the client, so we will coach the candidate to be genuine and not to say and do bogus things! We want them prepared, for our client to have a fair and accurate appraisal of them.
Step 5 – Feedback – typically
At this stage we gain feedback from the client and candidate to assess their perceptions of their suitability and performance during the interview process. We will investigate and explore any areas of concern, ensuring our client has complete confidence in the candidate and our service.
