The Silent Issue: Tackling Candidate Ghosting

Candidate Ghosting is a concerning trend, where recruiters find themselves in promising conversations with candidates, only to have them suddenly disappear without a trace. This phenomenon is becoming increasingly common and is posing significant challenges for employers trying to fill crucial roles.

While it’s easy to get frustrated, let’s dive into why this is happening and how it can actually be an opportunity in disguise. Read along if your company is facing this too.

🎞 Unveiling the Mystery: What is causing this phenomenon?

Job Offer Overload: 

Candidates are juggling multiple offers, making them more likely to ghost the less appealing ones. 

Remote Work Boom: 

The rise in remote work opportunities expands candidates’ options, leading to more instances of ghosting as they prioritize roles that fit their desired work arrangements.

Engagement Fail: 

A less engaging experience without personalized interactions, can deter candidates increase the chances of ghosting.
