Stuck In A Ghosting Spiral

Stuck In A Ghosting Spiral

  • Rather than sending a withdrawal or rejection email, workers and employers are simply cutting off contact during the hiring process.
  • Ghosting is considered a bad practice for both companies and workers; no one likes being on the receiving end of it.
  • Yet its rise seems inexorable: digital hiring processes deluge companies with candidates, making replying to everyone hard.

The Findings

One recent study of 1,500 global workers found that 75% of jobseekers have been ghosted by a company after a job interview. Employers openly acknowledge that they do it; only 27% of US employers surveyed by job listings site Indeed said they hadn’t ghosted a candidate in the past year.

Digital Hiring And The Spike In Applications

Digital Hiring And The Spike In Applications

  • The rise in ghosting is coming from both workers and employers.
  • Much of the ghosting we’re seeing today may simply be the fact that someone just can’t get back to everyone.
  • The loss of in-person interviews may also be a factor in ghosting by both parties.
  • Job-search algorithms place the open positions right in front of workers, making impulse applications easier, resulting in a spike for recruiters.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
