The most pressing issue that the intake meeting deals with is ensuring good candidates do not walk away halfway through the recruitment process.
During times of low unemployment rates, the job market belongs to talented candidates. They can be more choosy about the roles they desire, and also the organizations they wish to work for. They will not wait for you to clear the roadblocks your recruitment process has. With that in mind, it is obvious that time costs you great candidates. By asking lots of questions during the arranging of the intake meeting, you can save a great deal of time.
This workflow will allow you to look ahead and identify any future roadblocks. Some of the process steps it covers include:
- Questions you should ask the hiring manager
- Your communications strategy
- Agreeing on interview dates
- Deciding who will be on your interview panel
