Lack of feedback 'can be crushing for young jobseekers'

A survey by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and membership organisation Business in the Community has shown that young jobseekers are extremely disheartened by the lack of feedback they receive after unsuccessfully applying for jobs.

Furthermore, findings revealed there appear to be discrepancies between what both employers and potential employees are expecting from the selection process.

Long, convoluted and badly explained recruitment methods are making it difficult for young jobseekers to know what is required of them in the process, meaning they are not sufficiently prepared. This can be equally frustrating for those looking to fill positions, when they invest time in applications which invariably come to nothing.

Peter Cheese, chief executive of the CIPD, said such discrepancies need to be addressed and resolved, not just to bring down unemployment rates among young people and help them to succeed in their job search, but also "to ensure UK businesses are equipped with the right talent for the future".
