Things to Know Before Finding Your Next Job
Everyone might be looking for new job this year. Some may have this as New Year resolution. But thing is that you have to consider so many things before applying for a decent job. You have to prepare your resume, portfolio, email list of the company, cover letter and other. But have you ever thing of the facts those are going real and might look as nightmare to a job finder. Still those facts are real. Let’s see what are those facts you should consider before changing your job?
One of the worst fact is ‘chances of getting hired is one in hundred’. Now that might sounds scary but it is true. Recruitment agency/ company Lever made analysis of data of more than 4 million candidates to come with better answering results. This report is key source to find candidate-to-hire ratio.
Now as said by a wise man:
“There is always a opportunity in Chaos”
Candidate to Job:
There are good chances that you might be referred to a new company. Yes this thing happens, some time if they don’t need you but if you are a valuable asset then they will refer you to another company. Take this reference as a positive thing to you because now the chances are one in sixteen. Yes, a referred candidate has one in 16 chances to get hired. Using a recruitment agency increases your chances to one in 22. But if you are thinking to apply through a career page of a company then better think twice. Here the numbers are in bad shape, it is one to 152.
Candidate to Company:
Not just these facts also look for the company you are applying to. Big companies do not hold good image here. Big companies already have 1000 employees to take care of. So hiring rate is much less than the small corporation. Big companies are so much concerned about their quality that’s why they evaluate 129 candidates to hire one. And larger the pool more time it will take to make result. Also actually hiring a candidate takes at least 34 days for small and 45 days for big companies.
Candidate to Interview:
As a candidate think to give an interview, he/ she must prepare himself for more than one interview. Normally a candidate face 3 to 4 interview in a recruitment process. All these process take up to 3 hour and 44 minutes to complete. That is just an estimation of average time. This time depends on the post candidate appearing for. Like for project manager post it take up to 5 hour 30 min but as for sales manager, it takes only 3 hour.
