HR Giants Team Up to Offer Free Resources to Rejected Job Seekers

Zach Brooke

A new social platform cushions the blow of job rejection with free training


Job hunting is seldom fun. Getting rejected for a coveted position is bad enough, but most professionals understand the special kind of frustration that comes with being ghosted by hiring managers. Now, in the age of employment review social sites, job rejections are no longer just bad news for candidates, they are hazardous for companies as well. Disgruntled applicants vent on sites like Glassdoor, reflecting poorly on everyone.

Combating this trend are HR consulting firm Mercer and software company CareerArc, which have teamed up to launch Candidate Care, a job skills and search platform that employers can offer for free to candidates who they don’t hire. Courtny Cloeter, partner and U.S. growth leader at Mercer, explains why Candidate Care is a win-win for applicants and employers. 

Q: What services are included in Mercer CareerArc Candidate Care, and how long are rejected applicants given access?
