And so, I actually am a marketer at heart, I've been in marketing for over 15 years, I have a public relations advertising degree. And about seven or eight years ago, as I was working in healthcare marketing, I was looking for something new, and I wanted to grow my career and work for a larger company.

Omer Molad  0:02 Hey, Chuck I'm great, how's it going? Chuck Solomon  0:05 It's going very well. Thanks for being a guest on the podcast today. Omer Molad  0:10 Thanks for having me. Chuck Solomon  0:12 Appreciate it. So before we get into talking about candidate experience, can you give like a, you know, quick overview of sort of how how'd you get into the hiring industry? Omer Molad  0:24 Sure. So this startup that I'm a co founder of Vervoe is really my first kind of official foray into the hiring industry. Prior to that, I, my only experience in hiring was being hired or trying to get hired and, and hiring people as a hiring manager, which, which I did a lot of, in a past life, but I was not a recruitment practitioner in any in any form before starting this company. Chuck Solomon  1:02 Sure What, you know, you talk to a lot of companies out there, and I'm, like, you've seen a lot of, sort of can't good candidate experience bad candidate experience? Like, what are you seeing, like, where companies are getting candidate experience? Where they're doing it well? Omer Molad  1:22 Unfortunately, it's the minority of companies that, that do it? Well, in my opinion, and, sure, yeah, and if I had to really sort of boil it down to something really simple. A good candidate experience is an experience that sets a candidate up for success and, and gives them an opportunity to, to put their best foot forward. And a bad candidate experience is one that creates obstacles for the candidate, and makes it difficult for them to put their best foot forward. And all the rest is really just detail. Right?

Bonus: Millennials & Gen Z in the workplace
 Welcome to this bonus episode in which I’ll share some recent research on Millennials and Gen Z in the workplace.  This week I am talking with several great guests and just haven’t decided yet who I’ll air on Friday. I’ll make a decision by Thursday and post a Trailer then. According to InsideOut Development, more than 75% of Gen Z employees believe they should be promoted in their first year on the job, these findings from a recent survey of 1,000 individuals ages 18 to 23. These findings are something for HR and Hiring Managers to think about so they can best manage the expectations of this newest generation to join their workforces. Here's the link to the WSJ article for you to read more https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-office-rookies-who-ask-for-the-world-11554730098? Would love to get your reactions. Thanks for listening!

Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good -- Alicia Parr
Thanks to Alicia Parr for sharing her wisdom on this episode of The Candidate Experience Podcast where we discuss the good, bad, and ugly of the candidate journey.  Alicia is the Principal of Performentor,  a management consultancy where they use people science to help you grow your business fast with fewer speed bumps. She paraphrased the quote attributed to the French philosopher, Voltaire "Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good". We couldn't agree more, incremental improvements to the candidate experience are all good.  Here's the quote I read to start off this podcast from Peter Cappelli ... Companies often say people are their most important asset. But, for many, you’d never know it by the way they actually go about hiring those people. Also, here's the link to the full article The Mistakes Firms Make With Hiring. Sorry it's behind the WSJ's paywall. Thanks for listening and please subscribe!
