When companies interview candidates for available positions and they are interested in hiring a certain candidate, it’s important to get feedback to the candidate within the first week.
If candidates don’t hear back within the first week, 46% lose interest after 1 week of the interview and if they don’t hear anything by 2 weeks after the interview, they move on.
Hiring managers are very busy and it’s easy to put off letting the candidate know that they are being considered for the position or with a time frame as to when a decision will be made.
Many excellent candidates are lost to other companies because they don’t receive feedback on their interview in a timely manner.
So when you interview a candidate and you are interested in that candidate, take a few minutes to send a quick email with feedback on the interview.
