I am being encouraged to interview a candidate with a 17-page resume - what can I do with this candidate?
In the economic down-turn I accept that there should be more candidates and I should be able to set the bar high. However the actual situation is that I have to interview all applicable internally benched candidates.
And the only one put forward has submitted a 17-page resume! And I would like some advice on how to deal / confront this.
My thoughts are that I should request a 1-page summary, and provide a short deadline - thereby testing whether the candidate is capable of producing presentable documents within deadlines.
Any advice please?
