Employers are often alienating the best talent by making it hard to apply for jobs. It's so simple for consumers to order an Uber or buy something online
New York (PRWEB) June 28, 2016
Jibe, Inc., a recognized leader for Candidate Experience Software, processed its 25 millionth job application on June 27, 2016, representing a 2000% CAGR in applications processed by Jibe.
Employers use the Jibe software and know-how to consumerize what is usually an outdated process and difficult experience to search for and apply to jobs on companies' career sites. Jibe is deployed by global brands across industries to convert more job seekers into applicants; Jibe clients boast an aggregate application completion rate of 79%.
According to Jibe's CEO, Joe Essenfeld, a concerning number of the largest employers are still falling short in candidate experience--particularly on their career sites and in their application processes.
Essenfeld said, "Employers are often alienating the best talent by making it hard to apply for jobs. It's so simple for consumers to order an Uber or buy something online. Job seekers have little patience for career sites and application experiences that don't achieve the same level of user experience. There's no excuse for a Fortune 500 company to not meet the digital and mobile expectations of candidates in 2016."
As explained by Essenfeld, room for improvement remains. "We have a massive dataset that our team is constantly mining to understand the behaviors of candidates. These insights enable our clients to optimize their recruiting."
The importance of candidate experience is underscored by the recently released Talent Board's 2015 North American Candidate Experience Report, "Year after year, career sites prove to be the most valuable channel for candidates who are researching an employer, for all five generations and both men and women. Candidates want to go directly to the source to discover information about the company and the job before visiting a third-party site."
