Ep 235: A Model Candidate Experience

Contact: matt@metashift.co.uk It seems like we have been talking about the candidate experience forever, and while some employers have made progress in improving things, there is still a long way to go.

It seems like we have been talking about the candidate experience forever, and while some employers have made progress in improving things, there is still a long way to go. One of the issues has always been the lack of a recognized model to explain and then consequently strategically address the candidate experience.

To tell us all about this, my guest this week is Susan LaMotte, Founder and CEO of Exaqueo.

In the interview, we discuss:

  • Process versus experience
  • Phases of the candidate experience
  • The unification of candidate experience and employee experience
  • Why so few employers are fixing their candidate experience
  • Measurement
  • Source of influencer versus source of hire
  • Talking points and messaging for employee referrals
