The welcome mat and your candidate experience

Whenever you go to a new hotel or a new bar or even visiting a house,you get a feeling about what the place is like when you first go through the door. You form an impression on first sight about whether it is going to be interesting, or if it is going to be less than welcoming. We might consider this to be intuition, or gut feel, and often our first impression is proved to be wrong but we form it none the less. I have thinking about this quite a lot recently because I have been taking a look at just how welcoming some career sites are when it comes to the business of applying, and I have noticed some fairly scary things that have a real impact on the applicant experience.
