A programme this week on ITV underlined this problem. It featured Alan Sugar and was aimed at helping young people who are finding it tough to find jobs. Apparently on average 250 people apply for every job advertised and only 15 are interviewed.
This is clearly a challenge for the candidates but also for the employer. How do you cope with these volumes and make sure you see the best candidates? One way is to use a psychometric tool like The McQuaig System to help do this. A CV alone, with all the “inaccuracies” they contain, is not going to be enough.
A fast, effective sifting tool like McQuaig can make all the difference and ensure you get the best result from a large pool of applicants.
