Have you ever found an attractive job opportunity, filled out a voluminous application, and then waited? And waited. And never received so much as an acknowledgment? Was your assumption that you were qualified for the job wishful thinking? Was the employer’s search just a fraud where they already had decided on whom to hire but conducted a search anyway? Was the entity you applied to just rude? A ghosted job applicant will likely never know the answers to any of these questions.

What are employers thinking?

The job applicant pool is weakened

Employment discrimination may be covered up

So, what to do?
