Job Search Strategies: Quintcareers Update
Filed under: Position Searching, Public Relations docs, Recruiters
Posted by: site admin @ 11:08 am

One of the most informative places to
obtain pertinent guidance for career is
Quintessential career reports.  Some
highlights from Susan Hansen’s summary
are:

“Internet is becoming a much stronger source
for
recruiting and job-hunting” in some
unexpected ways 

“Networking is hard; responding to ads
on job boards is relatively easy.” Many
individuals fall to the easier approach.
“The fact remains, though, that the vast majority
of vacancies are never advertised, networking
as the best way to find a job.”
example:
one survey cites sources for job interviews
(high average salary):
1. Networking contacts (46 percent);
2. Internet job listings (24 percent); and
3. Unsolicited contact from a recruiter (5 percent). 

Many employers and recruiters perceive “you
are a better candidate if you’re employed.”

“Your online presence is more important than
ever.  This is even if you are not actively seeking
a new job.  An online presence, in which you
pop up in Google and other searches, can
open up some unexpected opportunities.”

There is quite a bit of factual information in
the Quintessential Careers report.  Consider
taking a look for recent trends it reveals.
