@shannonpritchett , Loving the conversation this has started.
The idea that, from a fairness standpoint, the cover letter is a notable chance for a candidate to share why they think they’re the best fit for the job is worthy of discussion as over 80% of the +2k respondents say that “No” it doesn’t make a difference or they don’t read it.
Very interesting and fun conversation. (Wait, what year is it again?)
Either way – here are the quick results from a question related to the fairness element that was asked in our Candidate Experience meeting yesterday. Sample includes ~25 companies.
