THE PUBLISHED JOB MARKET

We monitor and work the published job market for our candidates as well as to build our contact base.  There are many pros and cons with the published job market:



PROS

  • It is a sample of the job market as a whole and helps gauge the marketplace.

  • Your perfect job could be there.

  • We have technology that allows us easy access.

  • We can quickly and efficiently get you in front of these opportunities.

  • Published listings give us access to companies with which we can develop relationships for our own contact list.

CONS

  • The published job market is very small at the top management levels.

  • At the highest levels of employment, the number of published jobs can be less than 5%.

  • Anybody can apply for these positions whether they are qualified or not; therefore, this is where you have the greatest amount of competition.

  • Companies often have a very specific checklist.  If you don't match the checklist, you don't get a call.

  • Companies that do advertise give prospective employees a chance to change their resume and their story about who they are before they apply for the job.  This is more likely to result in a bad hire.
