3 METHODOLOGY / OBJECTIVES

5 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

6 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY KEY FINDINGS / IMPLICATIONS Job Seekers and Employers Are Not Always On the Same Page There are some disconnects regarding the application process: o Although the grades placed on the online application process from employers and job seekers were similar, applicants are still dissatisfied in some areas. o Job seekers feel the application process is longer and more complex than employers do (not surprising, since about 1/3 of employers have not tried to go online and apply for a job with their own online application process). o Job seekers would like much more communication from potential employers during the application process, so they know where they stand even if it is bad news. Applicants would prefer a personal notification, but expect an automated response at minimum.

7 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY HIRING STATS About the Employer Hiring Process About 60% of hires take two weeks to a month to finalize. 15% take less time. About 60% of employers have a cost per hire of $3,000 or below, and about 30% of current users are not sure of the cost. The cost estimate is higher for potential users and decision makers. About 75% of employers track Source of Hire the percentage is lower for current users and higher for potential users and decision makers. Multiple sources are used for Source of Hire, although Social Media is still fairly low 6% usage overall. About 1/3 of employers filled more than 50 vacancies in the past year, but the number varies widely. Plans for the upcoming year are similar.

8 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY APPLICATION PROCESS Employer / Job Seeker Views of the Application Process 2/3 of job seekers felt their most recent application experience was either good (grade B ) or excellent ( A ). The pattern of grades is similar to what employers stated as well from their perspective. The number of steps in an application process (both number of pages and minutes) is seen as longer by the applicants than by the employers. About 50% of employers feel length of application process is a positive because it weeds out applicants and it does, as about 60% of job seekers have quit an application in the middle due to its length / complexity. Job seekers are looking for communication from employers they want to know where they stand. About 90% want an at least an automated response from the potential employer, although 40% feel that is too impersonal.

9 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY MOBILE About Usage of Mobile During Application Process About 45% of employers do not offer the option for applicants to apply using a mobile device, generally because of technical or resource constraints. Potential users (especially) and decision makers are more likely to offer this option. About 2/3 of employers measure the amount of traffic to their ATS from mobile devices, but this group varies in their estimate of how large that traffic actually is. Of those employers whose ATS doesn t measure traffic from their mobile site, about 90% feel their company is NOT missing out on talented applicants. However, when job-seekers cannot apply via a mobile device, 65% say they rarely return to their desktop to finish the application. Employers are split about equally regarding plans to update (or begin offering) their mobile option (between Yes, No, Not Sure). o Potential Users and decision makers are at least twice as likely as current users to say they plan to upgrade.
