Australian Job Market – Findings on Current Recruitment Processes
According to a new and recent survey (of approximately 800 professionals) conducted by Robert Walters, it was revealed that the two biggest influences on job-seekers’ opinions of an employer are: the length of the recruitment process; and the person(s) conducting the interviews. The survey showed that over 75% of prospective employees were turned off a job/employer by a lengthy recruitment process. Specifically, the research found that 79% of job seekers were turned off from a job by a long recruitment process; and 45% had withdrawn from a recruitment process because they did not like the person(s) conducting the interviews. These findings are consistent with feedback regularly received from candidates.
