Effective Planning: Mastering the Job Search Timeline

Expert planning is essential to any job search. By thinking ahead, your team can stay organized and inform candidates of important milestones and expectations. When you begin to map out milestones that candidates can look forward to, be sure to select realistic, attainable dates for you and your team. Try not to spread yourself too thin by setting short deadlines in hopes of a quicker search process, especially if you already have a full plate of other projects and daily tasks. A rushed process can discourage candidates from applying, and rescheduling dates repeatedly can cause applicants to wonder if something is wrong and potentially withdraw from a search.
