Information about the job Market:
Network and Netowrk- This is the future for any position
Because of this Interesting statistic: 5 out 1000 job seekers using internet searches are interviewed and are offered employment. Proving that the impersonal touch does not work. It is horrible for the job seekers and for the employers because this process just is not working.
US DOL that said jobs are fou...nd as follows:
48% - friends / relatives; 24% by direct application to the employer; 13% a combination of methods; 6% school placement services; 5% through want-ads; 3% through state employment services; 1% through private employment agencies. This equates to 80% through a combination of networking & targeted applications.
Submitting resumes through an electronic portal system allows quick submittal, but apparently is not working to the job seeker or employers advantage. The resume needs to have exact verbiage as the job description. If the right verbiage is not in the resume the search engines will not pick up the resume and present the job seeker as a possible viable candidate.
