Hiring Made Human - Our New Home!
By ConnectedWell Talent Advisors • Issue #10 • View online
Hi there! Come on inside :)
Over the past 9 months, I have been working on refining and finding my voice for the newsletters I want to publish regularly. That journey has led us here to this new home:
Hiring Made Human - Smart, actionable weekly email newsletter for jobseekers, recruiters and talent acquisition professionals.
I really hope you will enjoy it here.
And, as a housewarming gift, I have a deep dive, below, of four smart ways you can improve candidate experience during these “unprecedented times” based on my Coffee With Hiretual chat last week (youtube). (though, I prefer my herbal tea, cough cough)

If you’re a little tired of hearing about these “unprecedented times” here’s perhaps something you can do about that if you’re on the “front lines” of a team lucky enough to be hiring and dealing with an inbound flood of applicants.
Four ways your recruiting team can manage your candidate experience during COVID-19 times include: 
  1. Better job advertisements
  2. Stated, public SLA updated for COVID-19
  3. Better, more human approach to rejection
  4. Stop lying
I think companies who find ways to do a better job of connecting with applicants and finding how to really and truly express what they want from an applicant and being bold in that will find their applicant pools are actually way more interesting.

Please share feedback on this new letter and format by emailing me: robert @ or @ me on twitter or instagram.
And please forward this to recruiters or jobseekers who could use a little pick me up! We could all use some extra ❤ these days!
