    The way I interpret it is 44 applicants get no response from potential employer. The ghosted is 2 applicants the employer tries to contact for an interview and employer is ghosted. Withdrawn are applicants that say no to job before getting an offer.

    I've only hired for 1 position so far in my career, and this graphic doesn't surprise me. Now if I can just get my employer to approve posting a backfill for my Quality Engineer that is moving across the country, I can go through this fun* process again.


    *fun of course being dripping with sarcasm.

    If you still do that, the irony. Care the patients and hurt the workers. Soon enough you will become a patient.
    Most of the healthcare systems in the area take their employees, eat them alive, spit out the bones, and slap a "now hiring heroes" sign on the window.

    It's no surprise that most of my coworkers use heavy amounts of weed or booze to cope with this ****.

    This is basically why job hunting is a full-time job in and of itself. Most applications take 45-90 minutes to fill out, and this isn't counting the time spent cultivating your CV/Resume to suit that specific employer.

    This is one of the main reasons people stay put while absolutely despising their position.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I'm a dolt. I misread the graphic and was thinking from the applicant's P.o.V. This is the employer's P.o.V.
    I think it is from the applicant's POV.

    Boss from Forest Glen 2 comes over and asks me to work first shift there tomorrow. I politely decline because of my foot.

    ​​​​​​My boss called around 7:30 repeated the request. I said no again. And kept saying no until I hung up. I get a text from her asking "did you just hang up on me?"

    I genuinely cannot tell if this is a real account.

    If this is a real account, welcome.

    If this is a bot, welcome as well.

    Inside the team we use different slack channels for different projects and slack sms to get in touch with the customers.
    All the other messengers are in the past for us now.

    If this is a thing with your workplace, make sure you dot your I's and cross your T's when it comes to documentation regarding time off scheduled in advance. You don't want the refusal to work to come back and bite you in the rear.

    At my job, there's an insufficient supply of coffee and curse words to keep up with demands.

    Also some personal news. My wife is finally getting licensed and has been working at just below 0.75 FTE because of the ****hole scheduling in her current positioning. She's been interviewing with three companies (including internally). She already got two offers for four positions at one of the companies, including a position she didn't think she'd get. She also just wrapped up an interview at a very large company within her field.

    So incredibly proud of her for going for this and taking the scary steps into new territory. She's an amazing woman. Through all the hardships and everything she's gone through with this profession and education just fucking her over, it's finally paying off.
    Congratulations to your wife!
