30% of job applicants have applied for over 50 jobs
In today’s world, there hardly seems to be time to complete daily work tasks, let alone set aside time to create a detailed hiring plan. With the average cost of hiring mistakes due to time and productivity lost ranging from 3 to 15 times the salary value of the employee, creating effective hiring strategies is important. More than 30% of job applicants in today’s workforce have applied for over 50 jobs in their search. It is unlikely that all 50 positions they have applied for appropriately fit their abilities. This is when having a Job Benchmark can quickly separate the appropriate applicants from those desperate for a position regardless of fit. Assessing candidate-job matches is crucial to ensuring job success.
