According to a study published by a job search website, 21.6% of job applicants admitted to abruptly ending communication with companies or recruiters without notifying them that they had secured another job or were no longer interested in job searching. The study, which included over 2,500 job-seekers who had found employment within the last six months, revealed that individuals who were new to job searching were 30% more likely to avoid employers compared to those who had previous work experience.
