Obviously as we move further into the twenty-first century technology becomes more and more vital as we can communicate in a multiplicity of ways. However, one distinct issue that plagues the recruitment industry is the lack of comprehension that comes with the more simple and direct forms of communication. With many of our forms of communication we expect a delay, a period that we have to wait before we can actually do anything about certain situations, the delayed e-mail, the slow postal service, or even the forgetful co-worker. But, the one issue I’ve noticed is people being available to talk on the phone. Leaving messages is one of the tasks I begrudgingly carry out, I would much rather get hold of the candidate and talk properly, allowing us to discuss the position and not have to wait for hours or days for a response is ideal. If we call you there is a reason, and that reason is that you are generally perfect for the position we have available. Communication is key to see if our recruitment senses were tingling because we are right, (which we pride ourselves on being), or wrong about a candidate. Without a friendly casual chat we can’t determine this, without a phone-call you may miss your dream career.
