Employers and Candidates: Different Views of Today’s Job Search [Infographic]

The job search has changed so much in the last five years or so: social media, personal branding, and the influence of LinkedIn, for example. Throughout all those changes, though, employers and candidates seem to be chasing the same goal: introducing a good employee to a good company.

And yet there are some ways, it seems, that job seekers and employers will never agree – including the experience candidates expect as they go through the process of applying for the job. For example, 84% of candidates expect an email response and 52% expect a phone call after applying for work. Yet barely half of employers contact an applicant in any form.
