Quick Job Stats

According to a recent survey conducted by the Human Capital Institute:

  • 60% of job seekers report quitting in the middle of filling out online job applications
  • 72% of job seekers report sharing their negative candidate experiences online
  • 55% of job seekers report avoiding certain companies after reading negative online reviews.

That shows that there is a major disconnect between between job seekers and employers. 

Any thoughts?

I haven’t read the article but those are some I get sting facts! I’d almost say shocking for two reasons. 

1. If these stats are remotely accurate, that would mean that a small number of people actually find jobs online. If that’s the case, how do online job boards continue to operate if companies hire most of their personal from other sources?

2. The article would also mean that only 40% people actually complete their online applications. Hmm..

Interesting and surprising at the same time. I agree with Sidney that you would think the success rates would be a little higher or at least closer to even.

You know I read somewhere that 70% of all statistics are made up.
