The journey a candidate undergoes before, during, and after the application process has a significant effect on their actions and feelings towards a potential employer, whether the candidate receives an offer for a certain position or not. A positive candidate experience can influence recommending companies and job openings to others, accepting or rejecting offers, consumer behavior towards that company, and even how long an employee will stay at a current job.
