What candidates are looking for, what has changed and why candidate experience matters

How to deliver on your promises and make meaningful connections
In the current hiring state, the number of jobs outweighs the number of candidates to fill them, so talent acquisition leaders must do more than just push out jobs to get the people they need.
The game has changed and while record-low unemployment rates are part of the reason, the other factor at play is the change to the way we can consume information. The changes in consumer behaviors and expectations will continue to impact recruiting regardless of unemployment rates.
Organizations that do a good job of sharing who they are, setting expectations of the hiring process, communicating with applicants and treating them fairly will be the ones to win the war for talent in this growing competitive market.
Candidate experience is more than a buzzword; it’s the differentiator that will make candidates choose you as an employer, more likely to refer other top talent to you, and purchase your products and services, too.
