This is a special bonus recording for member’s of our Love Your Career formula community but I wanted to give you a sneak peek and what goes on behind the scenes in our membership site and the types of training and content that is available. If you’d like to add your name to the waitlist for the next time we open up our doors, you can add your name and email at www.loveyourcareerformula.com. It’s my goal to decrease the overwhelm in the job search process and not let any question go unanswered in our community, so it’s the place you need to be if you want results for a fraction of the cost of working with an individual career coach.
So let’s get started.
Trends in Hiring: What’s Working Now
Why Focus on Referrals?
-Ernst and Young, Deloitte and other companies report that they hire 50% of their employees through employee referrals.
-It’s the #1 way to get hired.
-Employers are bypassing online job searching through monster.com and trusting employee referrals for more qualified candidates.
-The employee can review your resume and cover letter and make sure it has everything you need to get hired.
-The employee WANTS you to get hired so that they can get their referral bonus too. WIN-WIN!
How it works:
You submit your resume or cover letter directly to the person who is referring you.
They submit your resume directly as a referral.
You get hired. YAY! 🙂
The employee gets a bonus for referring you usually
after 90 days of you being hired. Employees can often make between $1,500-$3,000 for referring candidates in that get hired.
Focus on targeting people in companies that you want to work for. Get to know them. Request informational interviews.
At the end of the meeting with a hiring manager or informational interview, ask them if they know your work quality well enough to be able to refer you into the company.
