Why informed candidates are invaluable and how to find them

What makes an informed candidate and why you should want to hire them

It can be difficult to reach and identify informed candidates, as their research into prospective employers – through company websites, LinkedIn, workplace review sites, and the national press – make them more discerning in their applications

Webinar One hour Employee engagement Talent & recruitment Learning & development

The candidate looks great on paper, they have all the necessary skills but appear to know nothing about your organisation in the interview. 

This is the uninformed candidate; qualified, yes, but seemingly lacking the commitment. But it can be difficult to reach and identify the more desirable informed candidate, as their research into prospective employers – through company websites, LinkedIn, workplace review sites, and the national press – make them more discerning in their applications. 

Manage the communication channels that you control poorly and you may lose out on prime candidates who are put off by poor or vague messaging, confusing social media feeds, actions that seemingly contradict mission statements, and more.

In this webinar we’ll discuss why informed candidates are desirable, how to refine your application process to identify them, and how to communicate your organisation's goals, mission and values to potential candidates clearly and effectively, before and after they make an application. We’ll also look at the role of the interview in informing candidates – how much you could reasonably expect them to know about your organisation beforehand, and the essential things you should be telling them about your company.
