People feel more confident in the decisions they fully control
When it comes to major purchases, people are more confident in the research they do themselves prior to making the purchase, as opposed to a purchase that results from a sales call. We see the same trend with job seekers: 82 percent of candidates agree it is important to look at other opportunities before accepting a job offer, and 62 percent also believe they will be more successful in the role if they found the job themselves and applied versus a job presented by a recruiter.
