Imagine with me.
You’re top talent with a lot of options. You only work for a company because you want to, not because you have to.
With this in mind, you’re aware of everything. The company website, the recruiter you spoke to, and everything about the interview process.
As managers, let’s me mindful of the experience of the interview process.
From the moment someone walks into the office.
Is there music playing?
Did the receptionist kindly greet the applicant?
Did she give an energetic that says “We’re expecting you and glad you’re here?”
All these things matter. They plant seeds.
They aide in getting the initial “yes” and these same impressions last long into employment.
