Candidates Reveal the Strangest Place They've Responded to a Job Opportunity

May 22, 2015

Ever wonder where a candidate is when they reply to that message you sent? You probably picture them sitting at their desk, coffee in hand. Well, often this isn’t the case. Thanks to smart phones and tablets, candidates are responding from everywhere…some places stranger than others.

How do we know? In our recently released Talent Trends 2015 report, we surveyed 20,000+ professionals about their expectations from the hiring process. We couldn't help but have a little fun and inquire the strangest place they’ve responded to a message regarding a job opportunity.

Here are 11 of the most unusual locations they named:

Location 1
