Halloween Special: 13 Spooky Talent Acquisition Horrors
July 13, 2023
Sometimes, talent acquisition is no different from a haunted house. It can be dark, gloomy, and full of terrors.
After the rough year recruiters experienced last year, ghosts or ghouls will have a hard time giving us a fright this Halloween. From remote recruitment terrors, job posting nightmares, to brushing off cobwebs in hiring pipelines – we’ve seen it all.
But don’t hide beneath the blankets just yet.
While these talent acquisition horrors are not your average Halloween movies – they’re no less terrifying for anyone associated in HR.
Here, we give you your horror fix with some spooky talent acquisition horrors that still haunt many recruiters (who haven’t leveraged a hiring platform yet!)
Read on, if you dare!
When all your candidates turn up at the same time
When candidates don’t show up prepared for the video interview
When you’ve got to fill an urgent role by tomorrow
When job posting turns into a headache
When you have to chase down top talent
When your job descriptions don’t really match the requirements
When you’re haunted by Excel spreadsheets
When there aren’t enough hours in the day
When a competitor nabs your perfect candidate
When you get that one candidate who won’t stop calling
And the candidate who ghosted you….
When the team is extremely agitated and under pressure
And you have to do everything all over again
Do you recognize or relate to any of these talent acquisition horrors? We’re pretty sure you even have a few more to share!
