Of course, not all HR people use such tactics and work hard to fill the position with the best candidate so that it's a win-win for the company and the job seeker. But it's also important to be aware that there are some HR people or recruiters who may cut corners to fill a job quickly and move onto their next task.
For example, Dawn Graham, a former corporate recruiter, explains how she and her team were compensated and measured on the number of interviews and roles filled, leading them to do whatever they could to fill jobs as soon as possible, including the use of outdated job descriptions and making below-market compensation offers.
"It’s not you, it’s the hiring process. It's broken. Companies proudly boast that people are their greatest asset, and then force applicants to jump through multiple time-consuming hoops without any guarantee they'll even have the chance to speak to a live person about their qualifications," she says.
