LEAWOOD, Kan. – July 12, 2018 – PRLog — BCS Overland Park/Leawood, KS says that with the unemployment rate at historical lows, employers are looking to fill millions of jobs. For that reason, job hunting is better than it’s been in nearly a decade. The demand is particularly strong for service industry jobs and health care with American employers looking to fill 6.6 million jobs across all sectors. With the unemployment rate so low nationwide, higher levels of job openings suggests that good companies are having a harder time finding skilled workers. Small businesses are particularly aggressive in hiring, with about half of the open jobs being posted by companies with fewer than 500 employees. In a survey posted by the National Federation of Independent Businesses, small businesses reported that the shortage of qualified workers was a major issue affecting their operations in the second quarter. Moody’s Analytics anticipates that because it is an employee’s job market, workers can anticipate getting a bump in compensation when they switch jobs.

LEAWOOD, Kan. – July 8, 2016 – PRLog — 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.
