Things move fast in recruiting. You speak to dozens of candidates daily, giving both positive and constructive feedback.
Today, we are studying the case of a candidate named Kelly G.
Kelly earned an MBA from Duke and worked in mid-management marketing positions at Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines over the past four years. She looks great on paper, but does not get past the first interview. Hiring managers go from excited before the interview to cold as ice afterward. Feedback typically is along the lines of: “Just not a good fit,” and “We found another candidate that was a better fit.” In other words, she blew the interviews.
