Applicant drop-off rate is the number of applications started compared to number of applications completed. For example, an employer with an applicant drop-off rate of 30% means that 30% of applicants who started a job application failed to complete it.

ExactHire’s applicant tracking software features a standard applicant drop-off rate report that allows hiring managers to analyze this key HR metric. Insights from this report can inform efforts to optimize job applications for higher applicant conversion.
