As a Resourcing Manager I regularly pre-screen CV’s prior to invitation to interview.
One recent applicant is adamant he should have been interviewed for a role despite not passing the 75% pass mark at this initial screening stage.
Despite a lengthy telephone conversation & 2 letters providing feedback and explaining why he wasn’t proceeded with, he has now written a 3rd time saying he had the required experience for this role between 1987 – 1990 as explained on his CV.
To add to the complication of possible discrimination he is a member of our company Communication Forum Group.
My questions are:
1)Is this discrimination based on experience gained 16 years previously and from within a different industry?
2)Anyone else had similar experiences &/or suggestions on how to address this?
Your ideas would be appreciated…thanks
