Why You Shouldn't Ghost Your Recruiter

​Ghosting – when someone cuts off all communication without explanation. It extends to all things, it seems. A survey by Indeed found that a huge 83% of employers or recruiters have been ghosted by candidates. The phenomenon seems to be happening at all stages of the recruitment process. While some employers reported that candidates cut off communications following an initial phone screening, a quarter said new hires had no-showed on their first day at work. With spooky season in full swing, there’s no better time to shine a light on why you should never ghost your recruiter.
