More companies are promoting from within, according to a recent survey by CareerXroads. When asked how they filled open positions in 2009, survey respondents said:
- 51% filled positions with internal candidates
- 49% filled full-time positions with external recruits.
Just one year earlier, a mere 39% of respondents had filled full-time positions with internal transfers and promotions.
Of the 49% of jobs filled with external recruits, most of the new hires were referrals.
What that means, says Mark Mehler, co-founder of CareerXroads, is that “job-seekers should use job board and corporate sites to find information about openings, but they should use their network to apply.”
