Recruitment is not an easy task and especially when you may go through with this process you may have many bad experiences. These bad experiences may give you distress and sometimes some meaningful lessons. Being a recruiter is not a cup of tea it is an underappreciated and most difficult job I ever experienced.

It’s a general perception that candidates mostly faced recruiter’s attitude and arrogance but in fact, it’s two-way suffering in which along with candidates sometimes recruiters also had many screaming stories. As a recruiter, I can explain these stories in a better elaborative way. For the last year, I experienced many things sometimes irritating and sometimes funny but bad. Here are some stories which maybe you can also relate to yourself.

Great meeting but a terrible contract

Once we have to fill a vacant situation with the best suitable candidate. So, we follow the procedure and go with the candidates’ interviews. After a struggling process, we finally found an ideal candidate for our vacant position. The up and comer how about we call him Jhon had a solid resume, yet he truly prevailed upon the group during the meeting procedure. Jhon appeared to be shrewd, solid and steady posed attentive inquiries about the job. Jhon was appeared to be an incredible fit for our association.

In any case, not long after procuring Jhon, we understand we’ve committed an error. In addition to the fact that he seems like an unexpected individual in comparison to the one, we met—however he additionally tries to gain proficiency with the job, commits a few exorbitant errors, and demonstrates to be exceptionally hard to work with.

This situation is a bad dream for scouts and procuring groups in addition to the fact that we failed to select a top ability, yet we currently have the additional stress of managing a deficient worker. What’s more, albeit a terrible contract may appear just a bother, procuring an inappropriate representative can seriously affect your primary concern.

I learned from this experience that in the recruiting process recruiter should keep away from this enlisting bad dream by putting his competitors under serious scrutiny. Present-day innovation can avert terrible contracts by breaking down an applicant’s experience to foresee how connected with and compelling they’ll be as a representative.

In any case, regardless of whether you don’t approach the most recent enlisting programming, you can even now put each activity applicant under serious scrutiny. Make a useful exercise or task that copies the real duties of the job, for example, a composing brief for content journalists or a training deals call for agents.

Accept and withdraw

Another bad experience during the recruiting process was when I put an applicant through a broad screening and meeting process. My employing group was sure that we have discovered the best possibility for this job. So normally, we go for a deal with an offer and get it over to the applicant as quickly as time permits.

But unfortunately, we came to know that, hold up an hour before we get an email from the competitor saying they readily acknowledge. Extraordinary news, isn’t that so? Only days before the competitor’s anticipated beginning date, they send the email each enlisting supervisor fears—they’ve altered their perspective and never again wish to push ahead with the job. Presently, we have to start over from the beginning.

Maintain a strategic distance from this enrolling bad dream by figuring out how to spot warnings at an early stage. It’s everything except difficult to destroy this issue completely. All things considered, most employment propositions aren’t legitimately restricting agreements, so there’s nothing to prevent a competitor from pulling out of an idea ultimately. So, one should take steps at first hand.


In this article, I am just explaining these two horror stories to digest and relate. It is also concluded that you experienced a new thing and also something significant from every experience.
