As far as I’m concerned too many companies are spending too much time, money and energy on improving the candidate experience after the person applies. In my opinion, a better approach is to rethink the candidate experience before the person is hired.
By improving the pre-candidate experience it will be easier to manage the true candidate experience. And by focusing on how you engage talent before they apply, you’ll be bringing in people who are more qualified for the role.
