BCS Discusses Targeted Marketing In A Job Search

5693181611_20784ec482_b

 

Proper research on companies will help to home in on the right industries, companies and the right kinds of positions.
Leawood, United States, September 20,2017
BCS Overland Park / Leawood says that an effective job search is really a research process. Instead of blindly sending resumes to companies that may or may not be an ideal fit, proper research on companies will help to home in on the right industries, companies and the right kinds of positions. This will increase the odds of landing a position quicker but more importantly pick the right job – the one that will be the best fit for the long term. Effective research will develop into a Personal Marketing Plan which will be targeted to specific companies and decision makers.

This approach will serve as a guide for the search and will make the whole process less stressful and more efficient. Also, a more organized approach condenses time and generally results in multiple offers which creates leverage in the negotiations resulting in a higher compensation package.

BCS is a career management firm located in Leawood KS and assists professionals and executives in various industries across the country. They have 49 cooperative offices in five countries including the U.S., Australia, Canada, Scotland and England.

BCS Overland Park Discusses Job Hunting Mistakes – Press Release

BCS Overland Park/Leawood Kansas says that may job seekers fail to realize that over 80% of opportunities are not found through traditional resources such as the internet job boards.

LEAWOOD, Kan.July 8, 2016PRLog — BCS Overland Park/Leawood Kansas says that may job seekers fail to realize that over 80% of opportunities are not found through traditional resources such as the internet job boards.  Statistics show that online resumes produce only one inquiry for every 85 resumes a company receives and less than half of the inquires result in an interview.  Therefore, only one interview takes place for every 170 resumes with the average company conducting 10 interviews before extending an offer.  That means one offer is extended for every 1,700 resumes that are submitted through online postings.

The more effective approach is to utilize “target marketing” by identifying transferable /marketable skill sets, qualifying desirable companies to work for and utilizing networking techniques to ensure marketing collateral such as resumes and cover letters end up in the hands of the actual decision makers.  BCS says that in the first quarter of 2016, approximately 40% of client offers were created positions utilizing the “target marketing” method from the Overland Park office.

Explaining the Wage Gap

@work: a career blog

Every year on National Equal Pay Day, activists recognize the point in the year that women’s pay catches up with her male equivalent. In 2016, Equal Pay Day will fall on April 12. The PR gimmick is designed to bring attention to the fact that women still earn about 78 percent of what men earn, decades after entering the workforce in significant numbers.

There are regulations in place to ensure that hourly workers who do the same job get paid equally, and it’s rare to see blatant discrimination based on gender. But there women do earn less over their lifetimes, for several reasons. They may take time off early in the careers to have and raise children, which can put them a few years behind their male peers. They often have the primary responsibility for family caretaking, making them more likely to work part-time or take jobs that require fewer…
