Up History of the Firm Applicant/Candidate Superstars 10 Deadly Blunders Interview Compensation Policy

The difference
between an applicant
and a candidate

Applicants are looking to fill their needs with your job offer. Applicants hunt for leads in "help wanted" columns and employment agencies. Sometimes an applicant who is justifiably unhappy in a job situation will turn out to be exactly the person you need.

Candidates often aren't even considering changing jobs. A candidate is simply someone who is exactly right for the position you want to fill. Happy candidates don't read help wanted columns or talk to employment agencies. Many don't even have resumes.
