  • Understand the Applicant View

Before building an application workflow and sourcing applicants, it is crucial to view the application experience through the applicant's perspective. The company description, job and responsibilities, and requirements should be clear and engaging -- the applicant should feel excited to apply to your company and this position.

  • Improve on the Applicant Experience

Be sure to test your workflow and envision how the applicant would go through it, and be considerate of the applicant's time -- numbers show that the longer the application process, the more applicant conversion rate drops and people don't end up finishing the application. Only include questions and stages that are necessary for your position, and cut out any fluff or filler.
