As a recruiter, you have the responsibility to be honest to candidates. You should tell them the truth about their skills, their experience and what they can expect to be paid.
Remember that your candidates are real people and they deserve that from you. While you may be worried about your multiple openings, the number of candidates you reach out to each day or the number of positions you’re closing – realize that regardless of what it is, candidates appreciate the truth. They value follow up. They want to know where they stand in the process and that you value their time. They want to trust that when they engage with you, you’re not just telling them what they want to hear.
Not only does your reputation depend on honesty, but so does your agency’s. Don’t mislead candidates about the job or even tell white lies about the status of their application.
Communication is the most important factor in your relationship with candidates. No matter whether it’s good news or bad news, in order for to do your jobs properly, share the information in a timely matter.
Because at the end of the day, all you have is your word and your integrity.
