So, you posted a job online and received a lot of interesting applications. But after a few weeks, you only have a few candidates who are interested in moving forward with their applications.
It may also happen that the selected candidates do not show up for the scheduled interview. Or they may also back out at the last moment before the joining date.
The major challenge that any recruiter faces is finding suitable talent for the job opening. Even if you get a lot of applications, none of them might have the right skills and qualifications for the job.
This is because most ideal job candidates are likely already employed. These candidates are generally referred to as passive candidates.
As a human resources professional, you might be receiving various applications for a job opening at your company.
Each corporate job posting attracts approximately 250 resumes. Out of these, four to six candidates are called for interviews, and only one will be hired.
Gone are the days when recruitment included only posting job openings and waiting for your dream candidate to apply. Hiring the best possible candidates to perfectly suit the needs of your company is an overwhelming job. Despite the proliferation of digital recruitment software, finding qualified candidates is still a challenge in the 21st century.
The idea of candidates ghosting a prospective employer might come as a surprise to most people. However, it does happen quite often.
A 2021 research report by a leading job portal found that around 28% of job applicants ghosted a prospective employer over the last year.
Did you know that more than 60% of candidates believe that employers do not communicate on time? Besides communication, various obstacles in the hiring process might force a candidate to drop out. If you provide a positive recruitment experience to candidates, they are 38% more likely to accept your job offer.
Success is often a result of doing a common thing uncommonly. A well-crafted careers page encapsulates your organization’s story. It is a potent means to inform, influence, and inspire. It forges the connection between the employer and prospective employees.
The Talent Board research showcases that your careers page is the number one platform where candidates go to research about your company.
