The Interview Process for Gen Y

As you know, each time you interview a young recruit, he/she is going to feel a LOT of stress.  And…it never feels great to get an e-mail or form letter saying “Sorry…you didn’t get the job”.

Each time this happens, a young recruit goes out and tells 20 people that the denial came in such an impersonal way.

As you are interviewing young hires, make them feel at home.  Be upfront about the job they are seeking and what exactly you are looking for.  If the candidate is not a good fit for the position, do yourself a HUGE favor and give them a telephone call explaining exactly why they did not get the job.  Fill them in on what they can do to be a stronger candidate in the future (because they DO want to know)..
