When we started out List25 , we faced a lot of criticism. People were saying that sites like these fail to grow because it is hard to keep a loyal audience. We asked around and a lot of people who had done something similar in the past reported that the bounce rate for a siimlar site was soaring in 80% range. Average user would view only one page per visit and leave. We started the site out to get some base data. Our bounce rate was in the 75% range. We slowly started implementing the changes mentioned above. Bounce rate decreased from the average of 76% to 42%. Our pageviews per visit increased to / pages per visit. Average time spent on page went to the average of 3 minutes and 40 seconds
I have only seen a few instances of it, but they were typically related to grant-funded positions that were on a tight deadline. They only needed/could afford the additional person if the grant came through, and once the grant came through they needed someone to start ASAP, so they try to time the interview process so that it’s nearing the offer stage when the grant is received and they can have someone on the job almost immediately after the money is available. In a few cases, the grant didn’t come through, so they were otherwise ready to make an offer but weren’t able to.
