Jobseekers want salary transparency before applying to jobs
The push for greater financial transparency has entered another realm: that of the jobseeker. And compared to hospital pricing transparency, this one may be far more difficult to penetrate.
A new study by job search engine provider Adzuna finds that an increasing number of jobseekers want to know the salary attached to the job before they apply for it.
Why is that a big deal? Adzuna says its research since 2017 reveals that 54% of jobseekers turned down a job offer when they learned what the pay would be. And that represented about 480 million hours of wasted time on the part of those folks. Not to mention the wasted time on the part of those dangling the salary-less positions that went unfilled.
