With plenty of opportunities to choose from, today’s candidates can have numerous interviews lined up within a matter of days. With so many more options, candidates can afford to be picky with their expectations. So what do candidates expect from potential employers and are employers delivering?
What candidates want
Did you know, 70% of people in employment are open to new opportunities? The UK unemployment rate may be low, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of candidates on the market. Today’s candidates expect more from their employers and if their current employer isn’t providing it, they will be tempted to look elsewhere.
Are you offering what candidates are looking for?
In order to effectively compete in today’s job market you need to be able to meet and exceed candidate expectations.
