Hiring Manager is P*ssed and You Are to Blame. What to do next.

March 27, 20244 min read

So, you or your talent team has found yourself in the crosshairs of a furious hiring manager.

What in the world did you do to deserve such fury?

From Misfires to Hires l FREE eBook Download

We've all been there - the hiring manager fails to provide all the necessary information or opts for a moving target strategy. Consequently, you end up presenting candidates who are far from suitable for the role. Another classic scenario is when the hiring manager demands 5-8 years of experience but offers a salary appropriate for someone with only 2-3 years under their belt. And let's not overlook those candidates who vanish into thin air because your recruitment process moves at a pace akin to a snail race in slow motion. It's almost like a comedy of errors, isn't it?

But hey, before you begin drafting your resignation letter, let's pump the brakes and talk this out. I'm not here to throw you under the bus – in fact, quite the opposite. I'm here to help you turn this ship around and become the hiring hero you were meant to be.

“If you’re not making mistakes, you’re not trying hard enough.” ~ Vince Lombardi

First things first, let's ditch the blame game. Pointing fingers won't fix the mess. Trust me, I've been to this rodeo before, and it's entirely avoidable by fixing one crucial mishap. There's a light at the end of this tunnel, and it's not an oncoming train.

So, what's the secret sauce, you ask? It's simple: take charge of the narrative and communicate like your job depends on it. Because, well, it kinda does.

It's straightforward but not entirely effortless. However, once put into practice, it will make all the difference. Here's the quick game plan: position yourself as the recruitment expert and maintain open lines of communication. Throughout the Intake with the hiring manager, emphasize proactive communication by addressing all potential scenarios, including the positive, the negative, and the challenging aspects that may arise in each new hiring process. Each position potentially has their own idiosyncrasies, so asking strong questions, typically "How" or "What" type questions. Master these aspects, and you'll swiftly earn a reputation as a recruitment champion. And guess what? There's more – I assure you, it's not cliché.

To establish yourself as the go-to recruitment expert for hiring managers, seize control of the intake call. Delve into the specifics: job descriptions, ideal candidate profiles, realistic timelines, market salaries, and contingency plans for when things get tough. When challenges arise - and they will - don't shy away. Embrace them, demonstrate your expertise, respond promptly, and navigate through with confidence.

“If you make a mistake, admit it, correct it, and never repeat it.”

Now, let's address the elephant in the room: So, are you to blame? Maybe. The good news is you are now aware of how to address this mistake and can avoid in the future. Will the hiring manager be fuming mad at you again? Well, that's entirely up to you and what you learn from here…
