Which candidate should be invited for an interview?
You are on a search committee. Your goal…to choose the best possible candidate for the job!
After carefully reviewing the applicants’ resumes and cover letters (Module 7 – go to the dropdown menu and then to “self assessment”), return to the discussion. Use the following questions to structure your discussion with the other members of the search committee.
1. Of these three candidates, who do you think should be first in line for an interview? Second? Third? Why?
2. What specific revisions would make each candidates’ résumé and cover letter more effective?
3. For all candidates, are there stages in the communication process that you think the candidate should have paid more attention to? What are they? What would you suggest the candidate do when applying for a job the next time?
