Pass It Forward – Spread the Job Seeker Experience Survey

Gerry Crispin alerted me to the work of an Intern to Shaker Consulting Group in Cleveland, Ohio a few weeks ago. Joe Murphy, a principal of that firm.

Shaker Consulting Group developed an excellent survey of 29 questions that delves into the details of what a candidate might reasonably ‘expect’ from an employer.

The results will be public and not sold nor used for marketing. They have about 200 responses but the ‘n’ is too small given the various ways they want to cut the data and getting to jobseekers is not a trivial task.

I find the cause to be a good one and anything we can do to assist the job seeker experience is incumbent upon us to try and to pass the word as widely as possible.

Please take this job application process survey and tweet about it to spread the word:

    Fortunate to be at Gerry’s presentation at Technology Association of Georgia in Atlanta about 10 days ago.

    He is “spot on” regarding employer trends in candidate experience.

    Although venue time didn’t allow, I’m curious whether we recruiting consultants are adequately managing our “personal brand” by posing similar candidate & client experience questions of ourselves.

    Gerry, I’m glad you posted this, as I wouldn’t have been aware of the survey otherwise.

    Having just completed it, I felt it was well constructed. It takes a few minutes to complete but I felt the time was well worth it.
