Advice for Recruiters - Candidate Feedback
Candidates can provide some valid feedback to recruiters to help make the process more successful for everyone. Here is some advice from TIC teacher, Andy Funnell.
Staff at the International School of Qatar
“Simple, timely communication throughout the entire recruitment process is very helpful. I applied for some jobs in November and only heard back from them in April and May. Once you’ve got an interview it would be helpful if schools encouraged additional communication to address questions or concerns. Personal emails from the school really help; so much more than standard replies. They make you feel far more confident that you are being treated like an individual and make you more confident to go for the job offer. I know people who have pulled out of a job after receiving an offer but before signing the contract simply because the time span between the two stages has been too long, they haven’t heard anything and, as a result, have lost confidence in the school. If you’re making the big move from your home country abroad, then it’s easy to lose confidence at the last minute if you’re not well communicated with. My simple advice for recruiting schools is don’t leave me hanging!”
