A Winter Wonderland Candidate Experience

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and a great way to celebrate is finding your dream IT gig! You find an IT staffing agency sharing new job openings. This could be an opportunity you've been waiting for, but you want the candidate experience to be top-notch. Navigating the staffing maze can feel like untangling a mountain of holiday lights. Let’s sprinkle some holiday cheer on the candidate experience and explore what a merry IT staffing journey feels like. 

An Easy Application Process 

The journey begins with the initial contact. Picture this: you’re a job applicant sitting at your computer, and you click that "Apply Now" button. You’re probably going into the age-old process hoping for a quick LinkedIn Easy Apply experience. The Society for Human Resource Management shares that 92% of individuals never finish an online job application. It could possibly be because it is too time consuming, or we simply all get distracted. An InFlight audit notes that the average time to complete an application is 4 minutes and 52 seconds. While that is still under 5 minutes, KM analytics show that the average time to complete an application is 1 minute and 50 seconds. There are ways to expedite and streamline the process!  

We know your time is valuable, so we value it too. KellyMitchell’s mobile-friendly, two page application — where the entire process is clear and evident — helps cut down time because a great candidate experience includes a streamlined application process. It’s as quick and easy as whipping up a batch of eggnog and as clear as a twinkling fairy light. And, you can create a profile after applying to be matched with jobs as magical as sleigh rides. The process is optimized and personalized specifically for you. 


Your next interaction should feel like being welcomed by friendly elves. You should feel valued and appreciated right away. KellyMitchell recruiters are genuinely interested in your skills, aspirations, and what makes you tick, so we reach out with a phone call to get to know you.
