With the employment market continuing to tighten, many companies are re-examining the differences between active and passive job seekers.
An active job seeker is motivated to find a new job and actively searches for job opportunities. Passive job seekers are individuals who are currently employed and willing to learn about new career opportunities.
Our December 2016 survey of 940 active and 507 passive job seekers revealed some key differences in the perceptions, preferences and behaviors of active versus passive job seekers. These findings are revealed in our most recent infographic, The Key Differences Between Active and Passive Job Seekers.
