As a job ages from its posted date, it falls from the top spot on job searches. The older the job, the less likely it will attract new applicants. If you haven't made that ideal hire after 30 days, process all remaining applicants and close the job. Review the job content to ensure it's up to date, and then post it again. Best practice is to promptly process each new job applicant within a few days to a reject or a hire. Job seekers are looking for employment, and you are seeking the ideal worker. A processing delay could result in the loss of a strong fit. Moreover, fast-acting recruiting actions cast a favorable light on a company, as everyone likes closure, no matter the outcome.
