The candidate checks your website to see where their CV is in the recruitment pipeline; much like checking the whereabouts of a parcel dispatched via UPS. • The web can be used to create a virtual community around your brand. This can also form the basis of another feedback loop. Let client‟s let off steam in „virtual‟ public via an open forum. Demonstrate your attention to customer care by handling the complaint via the open forum, and thereby impress onlookers.
