There is NO shortage of applicants!

We don't have an applicant shortage problem!
We have an employer-not-taking-advantage-of-opportunities problem. 😱

Over and over again I hear:
"𝘞π˜ͺ𝘳 𝘬𝘰̈𝘯𝘯𝘦𝘯 π˜₯π˜ͺ𝘦𝘴𝘦 𝘚𝘡𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘦 𝘦π˜ͺ𝘯𝘧𝘒𝘀𝘩 𝘯π˜ͺ𝘀𝘩𝘡 𝘣𝘦𝘴𝘦𝘡𝘻𝘦𝘯!"

Yes and then comes:

- πŸ’Έ So it must not cost much.
- πŸ” He must be able to do everything and much more
- πŸ‘Ά She must not be too young
- πŸ‘΄ Too old please also not
- ⏲️ We are super flexible, but actually not
- πŸ’€ Our application process takes 4 months
- πŸ€” All bosses have to be involved in the decision making process
- 😐 Everything about requirements is a must-have
- πŸ‘₯ We still need a comparison

It is not because of the applicants but maybe possibly because of the companies that there are not so many interested people in the end!

Dear companies, you must please rethink and act. Stop complaining.
Because the lack of applicants is often homemade.
