Employers find that qualified talent usually comes from a trusted resource or employee and that leads to better hiring, job satisfaction, and retaining of talent.
According to Jobvite’s Job Seeker Online Nationwide Study, more than half of employed job seekers view their current position as temporary. Approximately 36% of employees change jobs every 1-3 years and 50% of employees change jobs every 1-5 years.
Based on a survey from Execujobs, 75% of work opportunities are found through networking efforts. While some of the jobs are newly created positions, many jobseekers find work by connecting with the people they know. Only 3.9% of the jobs were found through recruiters and only 3.6% of jobs were found through Internet job postings.
Networking is a powerful way to find opportunities.
