How To Turn Your Candidate Hiring Process Into An Irresistible Experience

  In a tight hiring market like the Bay Area, companies are looking for an edge wherever they can find it. A dynamic interview process is a great way to establish that advantage. The standard interview process looks something like this: Screen candidates through phone interviews. Invite the most promising ones in for an interview with the hiring manager and direct boss. Then invite the cream of the crop back for a final round of meetings. That approach is straightforward, but it’s also uninspiring.

How To Hire a Candidate in a Tight Market

  Top finance & accounting candidates are highly sought-­after and passive job seekers. These are MBAs and CPAs, and they’ve had strong career progression during the course of several years. When BVOH engages with candidates, we’re looking at the top 10 percent. Out of 15­20 relevant candidates, we typically select two to three with whom we’ll represent. These candidates aren’t job-­hoppers. They’re thoughtful about advancing their career and have work experience that shows constant progression at good companies. These candidates are constantly being recruited, but they won’t leave their position for a company they know little about and a position that doesn’t sound exciting.
