Avoid candidate ghosting with these tips

Job hunters have long complained about interviewing and then hearing nothing back from employers. Well, the “ghosting” is now going the other way, according to LinkedIn. Here are three of LinkedIn’s top tips to get responses from the top candidates you seek.

Stand out in the crowded job marketplace

Salary and benefits are no longer the most significant influencer in attracting highly qualified candidates. Increasingly, employees accept or reject job offers based on a job’s purpose, workplace culture and work/life balance. Applicants also consider an organization’s ethics and involvement in social issues.

Tips for bringing pay transparency to your organization

Multiple states have enacted pay transparency laws, and more are likely to follow suit. Yet nearly a third of employers say they are not ready for such openness.
