Candidate ExperienceHere is our weekly feature in which we share the top articles we enjoyed from the past week about recruitment marketing, social recruiting and anything else in the recruiting space. In this article, we’ll be talking about candidate courtesy, Halloween, Goldman Sachs, recruiting experience and active candidates.

Here are the articles that interested us this week (in no particular order), enjoy!:

Great piece from Charlie on the common sense ways to treat candidates with courtesy.
