According to a new report, there are four major flaws in organisational recruitment processes that frustrate graduates.
The study, by Talent Q, asked over 500 graduates and undergraduates about their experience of applying for jobs, whilst at or soon after leaving university. The results showed that they were most frustrated by a lack of communication and feedback, enduring long, drawn out selection processes, rude and condescending interviews and finding that the position that they’d applied for was actually quite different to the role that’s really on offer.
According to the study, only 49 per cent of organisations explain why they are using assessments in the recruitment process. Of the graduates who undertook assessments, only 49 per cent were given feedback on the tests they had undertaken. Of these, less than half were satisfied with the detail of that feedback.
