Oct 25, 2022 - Valery Caputi Lopez

Candidate ghosting is the number one challenge TA teams are facing today, according to our recent report on talent acquisition professionals in partnership with the Talent Board. We’ve covered this terrifying topic in our blog before, such as the ways to avoid it, what could be causing it, and of course, the tools you need to mitigate its negative effects on your hiring process (in infographic form, no less!).

But that alone wasn’t enough to stop candidate ghosting in its tracks: unfortunately, it’s too big and too complex of an issue, manifesting in a variety of ways across organizations.

Employers of all sizes need smart, targeted strategies to address the underlying reasons that candidates drop out of every stage of the recruiting process, and that starts with understanding those reasons within the context of their own hiring funnels. That’s why we made this guide.
