r152 Percent of Candidates Say Companies Fail to Meet Expectations

It happens all the time: candidates who seem good on paper often fail to live up to their potential in person. Yet, employers can be guilty of the same, as findings from CareerBuilder’s Candidate Behavior Study indicate.

In what may be an indication that companies are failing to live up to their employment brands, when asked about their experience applying to jobs, 52 percent of candidates said they disagreed with the following statement: “My interaction with the companies I have applied to matches what I expected based on tier reputations.”

In the same survey, even more candidates (70 percent) said their experience during the application process – positive or negative – has an impact on their decision to accept a position with that company.
