If you’re recruiting engineers, don’t waste their time.
To cut through the noise and provide a thoughtful experience, simply give these candidates all the information they need before they apply so they can choose if a conversation is worth their time.
This is about them. They choose.
We live in a world where empathetic communication + relevant information wins.
By removing all the guesswork and aligning your activity with market behavior, you’ll have more productive conversations with the right people who are actually in-market.
This is the information engineering candidates want before they apply.
Put this into an FAQ doc and include it with every message you send to candidates.
- What does your company make?
- How much money will I make?
- What will I personally do/make/create?
- Are the hours flexible and/or can I work remotely?
- How many people are on the team I’ll be joining?
- Who will I report to?
- What’s the culture like?
- Is the team I’m joining respected by leadership?
- Is there someone I can talk to before I apply?
Don’t overcomplicate this.
This approach alone will show that you're different and position you to be part of the conversation when the conversation is ready to happen.
