Effective Interviewers Snatch Candidates and Competitive Edge


Employers are reporting the lowest interview-to-hire ratio in 17 years, with 3.9 new college graduates interviewed for every hire they make.

According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, increased efficiency in the screening process allows employers to concentrate on a select few candidates at the interview stage.

In the competitive market for college hires, there’s now a premium on entering the next stage of recruiting—extending offers—earlier in the school year.
