Recruitment Nightmare Week

I am currently quite annoyed, fed up & downright down beat!

This week I have been interviewing for one post & shortlisting for another, both with really disappointing results:

for the first post (which has a c.40K salary & needed a degree & post grad degree qualifications), I had 7 interviews lined up over TEAMS, one person did not turn up & later emailed to say they had left their phone at home, sorry, one thought they had applied for a job in Salford & stated they had never heard of Bradfordshire (?! ?), then had the cheek to ask if I was sure I'd advertised the job correctly, one was clearly out of their depth & had obviously lied on the application & the one I offered the job to stated they only wanted a 3 day week - so why apply for a full time role?

For the other one (c.30K salary), I was shortlisting for a role that clearly stated an essential qualification for the role was a specific post grad certificate, of the 11 applicants, only 2 had the said qualification!

Right, rant over, I'm off for a lie down...

Good grief, B, what are the roles? I'm reliable and don't tell fibs 😇

What a pain and a bit of a waste of time for you.

When I was a catering manager I spent all day interviewing about 12 people for a supervisor role and not one of them was suitable so a complete waste of a day and Iíd been so poorly for a few days and dragged myself in to do these interviews I shouldíve just stayed in bed

Hope you get some suitable candidates soon

I am told, don't shoot the messenger, that if men fit 1/3 of the job description they apply. If women only fit 2/3 they don't apply. Not sure if this is true.

I agree, most are time wasters but, I'm sad you didn't consider the person who only wanted 3 days a week. Three days of a good person is worth 10 days of a chappy worker and the cost is lower. Better someone who is happy working part time than one that is grumpy working full time.

I have a 10 yard swimming certificate so would that get me either or both jobs?

I'm sure if we examine the certificate it's for 1 yard and you added the 0 later.

I have been helping a friend trying to recruit a mid level tech support with Mac skills ( we donít ask for degrees as these are usually not relevant to the roles or an accurate measurement of whether someone can do the job ) £35k and we have made 4 offers all have taken jobs offered elsewhere. Two recruitment companyís have suggested that if we want to get someone we need to offer in the interview

Still doesn't prevent someone considering other offers, or accepting but holding out for something else ; there's a new thread by a Dibber asking for similar advice as we speak.
