Nearly three-quarters of graduates willing to back out of job offers they’ve accepted

Nearly three-quarters (70%) of graduates are willing to back out of a job offer they’ve accepted, with three out of 10 (30%) stating they’ve already done so, according to our latest research.  5,319 current university students and recent graduates were surveyed for our annual graduate report The Candidate Compass.

Reneging on job offers

Among those graduates that have reneged on a job offer, around six out of 10 (64%) claimed that they did this because they didn’t know how to decline. Around two out of 10 (22%) said they did this because they received a better offer elsewhere, while just 9% changed their mind.

Your reneging insurance…

Don’t worry, Milkround are already taking steps to reduce the risk and impact of candidate’s reneging job offers.

We ensure graduates are fully informed about the roles they are applying for, and that they apply for are the ones that best suit their skill set. We also provide best practice advice to employers; all to help reduce the impact of unfilled vacancies on the companies who partner with us.

However, we understand reneging is a concern for employers, and that it is part of the recruiting process. To help further, we are offering you some reneging insurance this September. Simply buy and advertise a role with a fully branded premium listing in September, and if your candidate reneges, we will give you a standard two week job listing to use in January for free.*

Register your interest in this offer using the form below and a member of the team will be in touch shortly.

*Not applicable to current proposals. Offer valid until 30th September 2017.
