The conversion rate describes the ratio of visitors of a website to the action they took. You mainly find them in connection with online marketing activities. The conversion rate is a key measuring parameter when you need to find out how successful, for example, a specific campaign or job advertisement is. But how can the conversion rate have a positive impact on the number of applications you get? Let’s assume for a moment that your career site has 4,000 clicks per year, and you get 700 applications.
