The “After Interview Shuffle”

Little girl waitingOk, we have all been there.  We interviewed with a great company, for a position we could knock out of the park, and then we sit and twiddle our thumbs for an indefinite amount of time, waiting to hear back.  For days, weeks, even months we wait for feedback only to hear the singing of crickets.  Why is it that even the most experienced and talented individuals often times do not get closure after an interview?  Since interviewing itself is such an important process, one that we put countless hours of thought and preparation into, we feel we need to see results in a timely manner.

Now, there are three sides from which one can view this thorn in the side of modern talent acquisition, we must see it from the employer’s perspective, most likely represented by the hiring manager or HR personnel, the candidates perspective, and just because its my line of work, the Recruiters perspective.

From the Employers perspective, most would agree while it might be polite to inform a candidate when they are no longer in the running for a role, until the ink is dry on the contract they might still need to pull from previously eliminated candidates.  This causes delays in feedback, and when combined with the volume of positions needing to be filled in larger organizations, closure directed to candidates is often overlooked.  Every company has different hiring policies and procedures, so the time frame from interview to hire is very difficult to predict.  Many companies see this as a PR issue and have implemented automated systems that notify applicants when a position applied for has been filled.

From the candidates perspective, a minor adjustment in the way of thinking could alleviate unnecessary stress and worry.  In today’s volatile job market where the most successful talent leverages competition to further their careers, job hopping ever 2-4 years is commonplace.  Today’s savvy professionals understand that every job is temporary, and that interviewing itself is an important skill pivotal to advancing ones career.  Candidates must learn to do the “After Interview Shuffle” and put it behind them the moment they walk out the door.  Good candidates interview regularly even when happy in their current position.  This keeps them informed on what is available in the market, the salaries of their competitors, and keeps their skills sharp for when they are needed most.

For recruiters, feedback is the lifeblood of our business.  We sell talent, and unless we have a clear picture of what talent the organization is looking for, we cannot calibrate our efforts.  One of the major advantages of working with a recruiter is that we push for honest feedback and hiring managers will divulge weaknesses in the candidates that they would never share directly.  We can then calibrate our searches for better results and enlighten our candidates on nuances in their interviewing techniques.  A good recruiter will not only give you closure after an interview, they will give you constructive criticism so they can sell you more effectively to the next client seeking your skill set.

So, in conclusion,

Employers,

Please let us know where we stand, and be sure to give recruiters as detailed feedback as you can muster.

Candidates,

Do the “After Interview Shuffle” and walk away.  Never stop making yourself more employable, and if you are working with a recruiter, make sure you use their connections with the hiring managers to become a better candidate.

Recruiting Oil and Gas Accounting Teams in Denver

Why is it so difficult to find the right Accounting and Finance team for Oil and Gas companies here in Denver?  Why do we need staffing agencies when our organization has in-house recruiters?  Why should I use Ben over at RemX to find the missing members of my team?

Well, let me explain.  RemX is part of a 2 Billion + dollar staffing agency, so we have strategic relationships with major providers throughout the nation.  One of those relationships is with Career Builder, America’s number one job board.  To understand why you can’t find that specific candidate for your team, you need a birds eye view of the market.  Recently, I finished a search for a JIB Accountant with one of the larger Exploration and Production companies here in Denver, this is the data I started with:

Supply and DemandWhere they workIn the last 2 years, there have been 303 active candidates with the Title JIB Accountant, and 329 open positions.  This indicates a high demand position.  45% of the JIB accountant active in the last few years have Oil and Gas experience in their background, which leaves us with 136 potential candidates.

The position I was working on was for a larger organization, so I needed to ensure that my Company Sizecandidates have relatable experience and could work with the volume that was expected of them.  Of the active candidates, 63% have experience in companies with less than 200 people, that knocks them out of the running with my client.  We are also looking for that sweet spot of 6-10 years of experience, and only 13.9% of active candidates fall into that category.

Most of the postings for JIB Accountants are with 5 companies, 2 being search agencies, indicating that a good portion of the candidates are only available through an agency.  Candidates education levels are as follows:

Education

 

With their degrees when applicable coming from the following universities;

UniversityIn addition to the information you see in this brief post, I have about 15 pages of charts, graphs and pivotal information to help shape the appropriate recruiting strategy, identify the best companies to pull from, and determine what it is going to take to find the right person for this role.

So in conclusion, why would you not use RemX?  Using RemX as a supplemental recruiting tool to help provide market insight and additional candidate flow is the wisest thing an in-house recruiter can do.  How can you be expected to develop a strategy if you don’t even know how the market is poised?
