Allegis Global Solutions: Back to the Basics: HR Technology and Candidate Experience

Apply for a random position at your organization and see what it is truly like. You might be surprised!  When you put yourself in the candidate’s shoes, you can then get a realistic view of what people are going through. Some people that design these tedious application processes have not formally applied for a job in years! A relatively large amount of upper-level employees don’t even have to go through the standard application process as candidates, or it’s done as an afterthought. So, if you really want to get an honest grasp of your company’s candidate experience – read this article and start from square one.
