Finding a job today can be difficult for several reasons:
- 78% of jobs are filled by someone who was referred to the hiring manager before the job was posted to the public.
- Job searcher competition is high and everyone is working to gain an advantage over the next person.
- Companies are looking for the “best bang for their buck” and it is easy to be considered “over qualified” or “under qualified” during the resume and interview process.
- Job searchers sometimes settle for what they get rather than what they want and end up quitting within a year.
How can job searchers get the job they want and gain an additional advantage over their competition?
Recently Channel 8 News in Idaho Falls interviewed Terry Hansen, founder of Hansen Group Company, and Teri Hill, HR manager of BBSI; on ways that job searchers can do just that. You can view the 3 minute video clip here.
