We all know that long assessments cause job applicants to drop out of the selection process. Wait...do we know that? In this episode, we talk to Alison Carr, a consultant for Shaker, and Dr. Jay Hardy, Assistant Professor in the College of Business at Oregon State University. Alison and Jay talk about the research behind their new article, Are Applicants More Likely to Quit Longer Assessments? Examining the Effect of Assessment Length on Applicant Attrition Behavior.
Special thanks to Matt Sloan, another of the study's co-authors, for suggesting this article.
