Leading cloud-based recruitment software provider releases research report on the impact of candidates’ experience with employers
HOLMDEL, N.J. [July 16, 2018] – More than two-thirds of employed Americans agree that the application, interview or offer process would make or break their decision on whether to take a job, according to a new report from iCIMS Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based talent acquisition solutions.
iCIMS’ Candidate Experience Report explores the experience people go through as they search, apply and interview for jobs, and how the quality of that experience is affecting employers.
“When searching and applying for a job, candidates expect the same ease of use and functionality they see in the apps, search engines and websites they already use every day,” said Susan Vitale, chief marketing officer at iCIMS. “Particularly in today’s tight labor market, if companies do not prioritize the candidate experience, they will not only turn off applicants and lose out on great talent, but they will also hurt their company’s reputation and ability to deliver business results.“
In addition to the survey of U.S. adults employed part-time and full-time, the report also includes data points from iCIMS’ platform, which is drawn from a database of more than 61 million applications and 3 million jobs posted per year by more than 3,500 customers worldwide.
