School district ranks among top 50

The Lee County School District ranked among the top 50 winners of the 2017 North American Candidate Experience Awards.

The 50 winners are organizations that received the highest positive candidate experience ratings.

This year, more than 200 companies participated in the program.

Talent Board, a non-profit organization, collected the thoughts and experiences of over 180,000 job candidates to determine which companies provided the most positive candidate experiences.

Multiple factors in the data summaries were considered in the final analysis. Three key questions had a significant impact on determining the winners. The questions focused on whether the candidate would reapply, whether they would refer other job seekers to the organization and their overall ranking of their experience.
