What is Candidate Engagement?

Candidate Engagement refers to the level to which a candidate feels that their experience with a recruiter, agency or in-house hiring team has been a positive one. Recruiters are aware that the level of a candidate’s engagement can have an impact on whether they will accept a role, refer a role or company to someone else or rate them positively. Modern ATSs such as JobAdder now come with integrations such as AskNicely and RecruiterInsider that allow recruiters to gain valuable feedback from candidates to help improve their hiring processes.
