Recruiters and hiring managers know well the delays that plague recruitment. Going through the interviews and screening procedures is often a long, drawn-out process.


And it’s getting longer. The average interview time — from the moment a person applies to when he finds out he got the job — has increased globally in length by 3.3 to 3.7 days since 2010, according to a Glassdoor report. That trend remains even after accounting for shifts in job titles, companies, industries and jobseeker demographics.
