For years, potential employees have complained about companies ghosting them after a couple of rounds of interviews. Now, the tables have turned and companies are ghosted by their applicants.
The current job market has been recovering from a pandemic that has had interesting effects on the job market, but another strange and relatively new thing is happening. Employers are increasingly noting that job seekers “ghosting” them by not showing up for their scheduled interviews, or having new hires accept a job only to disappear. The irritating factor in the situation is how rude and unprofessional this is, and job seekers are fighting back by noting that employers have been doing this to workers for years.
For years, job seekers were frustrated when ghosted by job interviewers. Taking time off from work, maybe purchase a new outfit to impress, spending time interviewing, which in some cases can lead to a second, third, and even fourth round of interviews, were unnoticeable ways potential new employees would indicate they are interested. Then after all the effort, there is no response or communication from the point of contact. Some job seekers politely inquire about the status of their application and receive nothing in return.
When word spread about the discontent from employers, job seekers who have gone through that same annoyance voiced how proud they are of those ghosting them. Some job seekers also noted that it has occurred so often, they assumed it was normal interviewing behavior. If both sides are complaining of ghosting, then what can be done to eliminate the problem? Both parties could stop the behavior, but since it is something that has been going on for a long time, it isn’t very likely. However, Staff Solve can provide a single solution for both employers and job seekers to combat this problem.
