An experiment on recruitment seriousness

Really cool idea and in my favorite future fashion store (https://gammagamification.wordpress.com/2013/07/30/how-i-imagine-my-favorite-future-fashion-store/) or in any other company I would found I think of empowering employees to react at least in the second way (“The accessible office”). I want to call candidates that I applied and ask them when they want to have a coffee with me in their/my city. If we both are required to find out quickly if we should rather sign a contract or let it be I would offer a 3 months-long, fully paid (with the later salary) internship to find out if we match. If we are not required to sign the contract instantly, I would meet again after 2-4 weeks and talk again, this time showing the office and some cool projects, too and offering an internship if I am not 100% sure by this time.
I think what companies really need to change is this bizarre “Don’t call us, we call you”-thing that does not match with their “Oh my god we have so many jobs to offer and we do not find any good candidate”-attitude. Either a company is search for new employees and really want to employ someone or the company is just trying to occupy HR and dreaming about the perfect employee they might employ. If they did not annoy him/her already in the application process…
Thank you very much for this great post, Daniel!
May the force be with you,
Chris
