Suppose you are a hiring manager recruiting for an open entry-level management position in your organization. You posted the position on LinkedIn, Indeed, NetRecruiter, Monster & other popular job listing websites and have collected over 100 applications. You are now in the process of determining which candidates will be asked to interview the position.
Your plan is to select the top 10 candidates and then to invite 5 to phone interviews. So, you asked this group of 10 to send you an Email discussing their pertinent information about why they think they are the best candidate.
You’re looking for the best 5 candidates. What would you be looking for in their eMail messages? Education? Experience? Income expectations? Specific professional skills? Character? Work Values? Spelling & grammar?
What would you like to see that would help make them stand out from the other candidates?
What other attributes would you be interested in learning about them?
