Many times, interviewees are treated as second class citizens. They are not informed of any changes to the interview dates, or changes in time, and so on. Unknown to the interviewers, an interviewee is a fellow human being who if honored could bring out the best.
Sometime back, we agreed as a hiring panel that when each interviewee comes into the interview room, all panel members should stand up as a way to honor the interviewee.
It is an honor to have someone come for an interview. Never assume that people are coming because they are desperate. Even if they were desperate, if you honor the interviewee, it is a great way to represent your brand.
You may not end up hiring all the interviewees, but wherever they go, they will remember you and your organization; and there are high chances that they go around talking good about you.
On the other hand, if you treat people well during the interview, if you hire them, you will have given a great first impression of the organization. Please treat others the way you wish to be treated.
