It’s one of candidates’ biggest pet peeves: companies that never call after an interview. Now candidates are fighting back.
Savvy HR pros do their best to notify candidates when they didn’t get the job, but the step sometimes falls through the cracks.
Candidates who’ve been left hanging have a new way to tell those HR and hiring managers how they really feel — a Web site called http://www.emailyourinterviewer.com. Users enter an e-mail address and the site sends an anonymous form letter calling the manager out on his or her treatment of job candidates.
“A quick e-mail or form letter letting the candidate know he or she is no longer under consideration — that’s all it takes,” the letter reads. “Candidates deserve that. And so does your organization, which looks unprofessional when you leave candidates hanging.”
