National survey finds disconnect between employers and job seekers
from Recruiting Trends
Big companies are out, small and mid-sized employers are in and a big gap exists between employers and job seekers in terms of what attracts and motivates employees. Those are just some of the findings from the Active Job Seeker Dilemma, a just-released report from Future Workplace, a research firm, and Beyond, The Career Network. The survey includes a national sample of 4,347 job seekers, as well as 129 human resource professionals. According to 71 percent of HR professionals surveyed, employee referrals are the best resource for finding candidates, yet only 7 percent of job seekers surveyed view referrals as their top resource for finding a job.
