Candidate Expectations Report

To help recruiters understand candidates better and improve their processes, we surveyed 6,500 candidates who had applied for a job in the past 12 months. We wanted to hear directly from the candidates themselves about their preferences, frustrations and expectations in the hiring process.

The results of this survey give recruiters and talent acquisition teams real insight into what candidates expect and want. We found a clear link between scheduling, candidate engagement and the perception of a potential employer!
