Well said! I just sent an outstanding candidate to a start-up for a first round interview.
His feedback? The place “had no vibe” and he could practically hear crickets because it was so quiet. Not exactly a great impression.
Fortunately, the candidate is intrigued enough by the opportunity that he will be heading back for next rounds. I will be sure to mention the importance of creating a great corporate culture to my client. Don’t want anyone walking away for the wrong (and fixable) reason!
