The weekly discussions that we have are very insightful so if you aren’t already a member then you’re missing out on some insightful perspectives mind you. At Sourcing Adda we encourage our fellow Talent Acquisitionist to express their views on several Industry related topics.
The discussion we had this time shared some light on the topic, “Can Sourcing Play a Role in Identifying Fake Candidates while screening or should it be taken care of at the interview stage by the panel/recruiter?” This topic was suggested by one of our Hike Group members Siby and here’s what we discovered… This brings an end to this great discussion and it’s safe to say that although Sourcing does play a role in identifying fake candidates even Recruiters do; but especially the testing and QA team are far more effective in fake candidate’s identification. And even though a fake candidate is identified as highlighted from the conversation above it would be wise to let the candidate on-board to give them a chance to prove themselves besides we can always decide later whether to continue to keep them; provided they perform well.
