Why Job Seekers are Ghosting their potential Employers


Are you trying to hire new talent, but find your potential employees don’t show up for the initial interview or quit not long after they are employed?

If so, you are being “ghosted!”

Ghosting occurs when job seekers book an interview and never show up, or newly hired employees leave shortly after being hired.

Here are some tips to help you avoid being ghosted:

  • Make certain that you are offering a competitive wage
    • Higher starting wage trumps job security
    • If the applicant is filling a highly skilled position, consider offering the higher side of pay to help entice them
  • In today’s marketplace, jobs are plentiful—Job seekers can be more selective
  • Offer opportunities for the applicant to improve their position in the company through learning and broadening assignments
  • Clearly communicate (and recommunicate!) the value of all the benefits of working for your company
  • Share with them why people choose your company
