Americans believe that job postings should be more open and honest

People need to be familiar with small details in order to have faith in their employers before applying for a new job or trying to find work for the first time. The majority of job seekers are hesitant to pursue their dream job because they have encountered issues with the job's description.

A recent survey showed how many people face issues concerning the reliability of their job. The results showed that applicants are unable to find a job because of their lack of experience. Moreover, when looking for a new job, interviewers take rather too long to examine the person and do not provide the employee with information about the company and salary.

The issue is deeply ingrained in a culture where finding work is a means of survival in a capitalist society that is expanding rapidly. After learning of the survey's findings, respondents reported facing difficulties while applying for jobs, stating that it took them four hours to apply for one position. Although more than 2,000 adults have submitted applications for the same position, only 33% are approached for interviews.

Whereas 75% of applicants have found the whole process rather stressful, and simultaneously left them doubtful of the position. The reason behind this is the lack of information, misleading job posts, and unnecessary and prolonged questions during the interview.

Similarly, 54% of applicants have declined the position due to the salary offered. For people to be able to trust the company they are applying to, job descriptions need to be more open and honest.77% of respondents to OnePoll's survey expressed a desire for job postings to be more thorough.

The before-mentioned information in the job posting is said to be damaging to some businesses as they will be unable to find hardworking employees. Whereas, from the eyes of the general public, 32% believe that a company must be hiding something if they do not mention salary info in ads.

In a similar vein, 28% of respondents are opposed to the idea, stating that it would give the impression that the business is hopeless and untrustworthy. Additionally, 29% of respondents would believe that the company is unprofessional. While the remaining 56% stated that they had declined the position because they were unaware of the compensation offered.

Adzuna's CEO and co-founder, Doug Munro, expressed concern about the situation by stating that applying for a new job could be stressful due to the lack of information provided in the advertisements. It might feel like shooting in the dark with no idea which way to go. Before posting a job, Monro has urged employers to include all relevant information. Include the company's location, as well as the salary and benefit plans of the employees.

77% of people will be satisfied if the company is being transparent, whereas 31% seemed neutral, and the other 9% were displeased.

Additionally, Doug Monro stated that this increases potential employee’s trust in their employer. Employers must be more open and provide their workers with fair compensation and opportunities to maximize their benefits.
