5 Things Recruiters Won’t Tell You Through The Hiring Process. Things recruiters won’t share about the job interview process and about hiring managers. Recruiters want the best for both candidates and the company. However there are things which are confidential, there are some interview secrets, recruiters can’t share them with you but I will:
#1. You didn’t stand a chance after a bad first impression. First impressions still mean a lot. There are some recruiters which will put the first impression aside. But unreturned calls, bad manners, sloppy interview will definitely hurt your chances for then next round.
#2. You could have gotten a higher salary. Salary negotiations are a bit tug-of-war. Both job seekers and recruiters try to get the most suitable deal. No company would ever admit that they would actually pay more. There is often a salary range that recruiters have for each role. And a lot of times the initial salary offer can be negotiated to a higher amount.
#3. Your references were bad. If a recruiter or hiring manager have doubts about you, they won’t let you know if your unflattering references confirmed their doubts. Bad references can ruin your candidacy as much as good ones can make it stronger. If you give out references, it should be of those who will say positive things about you. However backdoor references is now a sneaky way, for hiring managers and recruiters, to gather more information about you.
#4. Your social media ruined your chances. What you’ve heard is true! Almost 80% of recruiters or hiring managers use social media to check out their applicants’ social media presence. Which is why your social media has to reflect the image and the brand you are projecting. It should complement your resume and in a way speak on how truthful everything about you is.
#5. Your appearance matters. Unfortunately, “Don’t judge a book by its cover” do NOT apply to most of job interviews. The candidate’s appearance should be irrelevant, but it can very much influence a hiring manager, it can either appeal to them or scare them.Of course the company is hiring you for your skills and capabilities, but the way you are dressed and groomed is important as well. Even if you are interviewing for a casual work environment, the general rule is to come well-groomed for an interview.
