We're always talking about how you can make the recruitment process as streamlined and positive for candidates as possible so they come away feeling satisfied, regardless of the outcome, but what can you do if your target audience won't even consider applying for the role in the first place?
This latest research by CV-Library gives an interesting insight into the fear factors associated with applying for a new job, particularly among 18-24 year olds.
How can organisations engage with these younger audiences better and remove some of these preconceived fears? These stats shout out loud and clear that it's time to look at different ways of attracting and engaging talent otherwise you won't even get a look in.
Job hunting can be a daunting time for many. For some candidates, it may be difficult to see through the brutalities of trying to find new employment - a period of time which is often defined by rejection, recruiter ghosting and rigorous resume revamps. And, new research conducted by CV-Library has confirmed that more than half of Brits are scared by the job seeking process. The study, which surveyed 1,200 UK employees, found that 9.4% have even avoided turning up to an interview because they were put off by the unknown.
