| October 20, 2016

Okay, so you’ve written a killer job ad, compelled a superstar future employee to apply; that is, until they see your initial application.  Here at ApplicantPro, one of the most highly regarded features of our platform is our reporting metrics.  These metrics speak volumes about every step of your hiring process including your initial application.  You see, we track an applicant’s experience from start to finish and we can identify wherein your process may be experiencing hiccups based on the path of the applicants.  One of the most telling pieces of this cycle is the data relative to the initial application. Most HR professionals would look at graphs showing a high number of applicants clicking on the job ad to apply, but quickly backing out as soon as they see how much of a marathon they’ll be running when trying to complete your bear of an application, as a positive thing.  They think to themselves, “We only want applicants who are dedicated to our company to apply!”  The applicants who don’t make it through the “gauntlet” aren’t worthy of applying and I don’t want them to complete an initial application anyway, right?  Wrong.
