Did you know that 65% of candidates who turn down jobs or decline to go through the entire interview process do so because of poor candidate experience, according to LinkedIn? And that only 25% of candidates are satisfied with candidate experience according to Sapia.ai?
Candidate experience is key. But what is candidate experience exactly?
My definition is an experience where every interaction leaves the candidate feeling good about:
✅ Themselves (first and foremost – even if they don’t get the job)
✅ The process itself (again, even if they don’t get the job)
✅ The company/brand (turn all candidates (successful or not) into raving fans
What are your thoughts?
