Nowadays, candidates often choose companies based on their candidate experience. Candidate experience is basically how a job seeker views your company throughout the hiring journey. We can say that now this is the most important step in the recruiting process.
Recent studies show that more than half of job seekers have had poor hiring experiences, whether it be from lack of visibility, poor or no communication from companies, sluggish hiring times, or lack of feedback after interviews.
The bad candidate experience leads to some serious consequences, which prove the importance of it. That’s why it is a main goal for every company to understand the weakest links in their candidate experience and to be able to further improve it.
