Truth about why candidates ghost during the recruitment process

More and more frequently, employers are reporting that candidates are ghosting them during the recruitment process. Ghosting used when a candidate abruptly stops responding to communication from a potential employer, without giving any explanation.

This phenomenon is having a negative impact on businesses, as it causes disruption and wasted time and resources. It also negatively affects the candidate’s experience and can lead to a negative perception of the company.

There are a number of reasons why candidates might choose to ghost an employer. In some cases, it might be due to a better offer from another company. In others, it might be due to a lack of engagement from the recruiter.

Candidates ghosting potential employers are unprofessional. If they’re no longer interested in the role, candidates should communicate with the employer. If you’re an employer, try to create a more engaging and positive recruitment process.

The job market is incredibly competitive. With so many people vying for the same positions, employers often receive hundreds of applications for a single opening. In such a competitive market, it’s not surprising that candidates might feel overwhelmed and decide not to write back to an employer after an interview.

However, this is a mistake. While it’s understandable that candidates might feel overwhelmed, not writing back is a missed opportunity. Employers want to hear from candidates, and not hearing back can send the message that you’re not interested in the position.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed after an interview, take a deep breath and reach out to the employer. A simple note expressing your interest in the position can go a long way.

Although candidate ghosting is likely to continue, there are ways to reduce it. By providing a seamless experience and using technology, you can make the hiring process more frictionless. This will make it more likely that candidates will stick with the process and less likely that they will drop out.
