Abstract: The purpose of the current study is to develop a model of applicant withdrawal from the selection process and test components of this model with an applied sample. In the paper that follows, several theoretical frameworks are reviewed which provide guidance for the current study. Predictors of withdrawal are identified based on prior research and theory and hypotheses and research propositions are offered. Specifically, it is proposed that selection process features, applicant perceptions, employment background characteristics, individual differences, and outsider influence will play an important role in predicting applicant withdrawal intentions and actual withdrawal behavior. The proposed study will involve data collected from applicants to a production position at a large southeastern manufacturing company. Data will be analyzed using regression, including logistic, mediated, and moderated regression analyses.
