In order to increase the usage of internet, businesses need a lump sum amount of workforce. Due to this major competition for employees brewing up, employees tend to swap jobs more often, for better offers. Employers are facing a challenge to find prospective new hires. The problem is that it usually takes more than two months for an employer to hire one skillful candidate. There is a risk involved where the candidate might deny the job offer. In this case, the business loses two months of their valuable time and has to start all over again.

The competition is worse when the quantity of talented candidates is handful. Most companies are usually on a look out for the best performer, because of which majority of the quality candidates have various offers to pick from.
