Ever wondered what makes some jobseekers more successful than others in an increasingly competitive market?
This is precisely what the Career Advisory Board answers in their latest “Successful Job Seekers Research”. While the average person would tend to think that a job search is a never-ending, nerve-raking endeavor, the study revealed that successful jobseekers implement systematic yet simple and effective strategies to land their new jobs quickly.
Conducted in March 2015 by DeVry University on behalf of the Career Advisory Board, the survey gathered responses from 589 U.S. professionals of varying ages in different roles and industries. Among the respondents, 72% were active job seekers and 28% passive job seekers. All of them landed new jobs less than 6 months after starting their search – for active job seekers, and after being recruited internally or externally – for passive job seekers.
