The candidates receive little to no personalized attention, are forced to interact with dehumanizing technology, and often hear nothing back if they're not hired and, sometimes, not even after they've applied. Yet, research from The Talent Board indicates the opposite: candidates who are applying to early career roles with employers who are...
