What percentage of applicants are selected for interviews?
Answer: – A (2%)
Only 2% of candidates make it to an interview, says Robert Meier, President of Job Market Experts. So, let’s put this in perspective. For every 100 applicants, you will have two candidates that are worthy of interviewing based on your hiring requirements. Yet, other studies have shown that 75% of the applicants are not actually qualified. So, for every 100 applicants, only 25 are potentially viable and of these 25, only two hit the mark which means 8% of viable candidates will be interviewed. If you include assessments and other screening tools, the percentage will be reduced even further.
