Give a Realistic Job Preview

One common reason for candidate failure and early turnover is the candidate being misled about the job or company during the recruiting process. It's only natural to paint an overly rosy picture of the job, but the net consequence of over-glamorizing is that many new hires quickly become disillusioned, disappointed or even angry when they find out that their real job compares little to the one outlined in the interview.

An effective approach for avoiding this rosy description is to give the candidate a realistic job preview. This should include both positive and negative aspects of the job. It generally includes not just the types of bad and good things that occur, but also their frequency of occurrence. For instance, we have flexible scheduling, but only 10% of the employees take advantage of it.
