CareerBuilder internal data suggests that 34% of candidates that try to apply for a job don't because the application process is too much of a hassle. 24% report the "apply now" link is broken and 21% report that the long application process isn't worth their time.
My clients tell me unbelievable stories about how difficult some companies make the online posting process. It seems like a lot of great candidates are getting away because they can't be bothered with most company's poorly worded job postings and frustrating posting processes.
