Don’t Get Ghosted by Your Best Candidates!


Finding the best candidate for your open job is a constant battle.

Not only do you have to seek out those with the best talent, but you have to keep them interested so they don’t vanish before your eyes and ditch you without notice! Also known as “ghosting.”

This recently coined phenomenon (thanks to dating apps!), refers to when someone cuts off contact with another person, failing to respond to any communications and essentially becoming a “ghost.”

95% of recruiters say they have been “ghosted” by candidates. And what’s worse, 40% of candidates believe it’s reasonable to ghost firms.

The good news is that ghosting can be defeated.

That’s where we come in.

In this 60-minute workshop, we’ll dive into how to build upon your current recruiting process, leading you to the best candidates for the job time and again, proven techniques that create and maintain enthusiasm for the job from your potential new hire, plus how to:
