Half of job ap­pli­cants put off at first hur­dle

Belfast Telegraph - Business Telegraph - - Employment News - BY ALAN JONES

HALF of job ap­pli­cants have been put off a po­ten­tial em­ployer be­cause of a bad in­ter­view or neg­a­tive first impression of an or­gan­i­sa­tion, says a new study.

A sur­vey of over 11,000 job­seek­ers by re­cruiters Hays found that many ap­pli­cants were de­terred by un­wel­com­ing staff or an of­fice en­vi­ron­ment they did not like.

The lo­ca­tion of a com­pany also af­fected how pos­i­tive peo­ple felt about want­ing to work there.

Half of em­ploy­ees said they have quit at least one job within a year be­cause it did not meet their ex­pec­ta­tion, or train­ing was not pro­vided.
