Have you ever interviewed someone who seemed like the perfect fit for the job on paper but during the interview, you just didn't have the "feeling" with them? Maybe the candidate did everything right during the hiring process but your gut was telling you that something was off?
Candidate experience refers to the feelings and perceptions that you create to your candidates during the hiring process. Creating happy candidate experiences is important because it not only sets the basis for happy employee experiences but also helps you engage the right talent during the hiring process. Happy candidate experiences also drive positive word-of-mouth when the candidates talk about their experience to others.
