Job Post Questions via Direct Applies on Job Boards
If a candidate applies directly on Glassdoor or Indeed, they're able to submit their application without answering the
Job Post Questions, where applicable.
If need be, we can turn that functionality off, so that Candidates would have to apply directly via the Careers Page. However, this could negatively affect our conversion rate.
For reference, after reviewing the available
12%of prospective Applicants actually begin an application (YTD ‘19) on Glassdoor.
11%of prospective Applicants actually begin an application (YTD ‘19) on LinkedIn.
16%of Candidates who start an application actually finish it on LinkedIn.
The above conversion rates are above industry standards.
Should we leave the configuration as is? That is, let candidates apply without necessarily completing associated application questions or turn that feature off?
