Rusher Roger’s weekly wrap-up report on what’s happening in the world of Rusher Rogers, our clients, our candidates and the recruitment market.
The importance of accepting decisions especially if they are negative, with grace, has really resonated with me this week. Accepting decisions and learning from that experience is a real skill and not easy when you weren’t expecting a different outcome or disagree with the decision. So what can you do to make the best of it? Take the opportunity to learn and grow from the experience is the best advise that I can give and advice that I sometimes have to remind myself of too.
One of the most difficult things to do as a recruiter is to deliver news that a candidate has missed out on a role. It’s never easy as you know what the impact will be for that person. That’s why good quality and comprehensive feedback is important to get if you can, but that is not always forthcoming as the decision between candidates can be as arbitrary as being based on a ‘gut’ instinct when you have to choose between two ‘gun’ candidates. This is almost harder to hear that than a solid and distinctive reason. It can be such a vulnerable time for a candidate, so empathy, encouragement to get back up on that horse and try again is really important and something that I hope professionals in our industry never loose sight of.
