Employers – Move Quickly on Those Hot Candidates!March 18, 2016
Desired and qualified applicants are being hired faster than ever! Recent studies indicate that the No. 1 reason why candidates turn down a job opportunity is because the company didn’t offer a position quickly enough. In fact, nearly 40 percent of those surveyed have rejected a job opportunity because they received another offer before the first company even made their hiring decisions.
It just goes to show that the perfect candidates are lost because employers aren’t moving fast enough. As we like to say at here DES, the best applicants are “flying off the shelves”.
Other factors that result in an applicant declining an offer include a spouse (or other influential person) convincing them otherwise or being unable/unwilling to relocate. In addition, the offer often isn’t attractive enough. With the job market heating up, employers need to move quickly on their most desired candidates.
So clients, do you have your eye on the perfect candidate? Move quickly! Chances are that the perfect candidate is already receiving additional offers. Make sure that you are adjusting your mind-set and practices so that you are able to hire these talented candidates. Let DES help with your hiring preferences and decisions.
