I finally landed a VP level job after being laid off three months ago. As part of my severance package, I received three months access to a professional firm to assist with resume, interviewing, networking, and other learning sessions Several stats stood out to me that I hope many will benefit from.
- Over 75% of all jobs are acquired through someone in your network.
- About 10-15% come from you applying on job boards
- The average response rate to you blindly applying for a job is about 2-3%.
My advice, reach out to anyone and everyone. Don't stop the hunt and going to job sites, but don't spend the majority of your time there.
