It’s Halloween 🎃 👻🎃, and 2019 has been the year of, well, many things, but #Ghosting applicants has certainly dominated recruiting headlines all year long. The phenomenon where applicants, and in some cases even new hires seem to go radio silent on you after their application has been driving employers crazy, and increasing time to hire and in some cases causing major delays in projects.

I’ve been collecting all the best articles and featues about Ghosting, what causes it, how to prevent it, and why it’s been so prevalent, all year, and now I get to share them with you.
