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.

BCS Overland Park, KS Says There Are Several Things Job Seekers Can Do to Ease the Stress

BCS Overland Park, KS Says There Are Several Things Job Seekers Can Do to Ease the Stress

Overland Park, KS, August 14, 2015 –(PR.com)– BCS Overland Park, KS says there are several things job seekers can do to ease the stress of the job search while speeding the process along. One rule of thumb says that it will take one month of job searching for every $10,000 of salary that you were earning; if you were making $70,000 it will take seven months. There are several areas that can be addressed to minimize the process including defining target markets as well as assessing your transferable skill sets and how they fit into those markets. If you are only applying to jobs online and not effectively networking, this alone can as much as double the length of the search. Resumes and cover letters should highlight skills and achievements to demonstrate transferable skills and be customized for the particular opportunity.
