- Narrowing the pool of candidates to a manageable number. A smaller number of candidates allows for deeper, more informative conversations with those candidates.
- Communicating with candidates the search team chooses not to interview. Informing candidates that they are no longer in consideration frees them up to make good choices about other search opportunities.
- Sending additional information on the position, church, and community to candidates the search team plans to interview. Transparency breeds trust.
