A three-year analysis of our placements resulted in a surprising conclusion:
If you rely on the Internet recruiting, you may be missing two-thirds of the market!
The Advantage Of Our Database
Here are the numbers for placements in Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) and Regulatory Affairs disciplines throughout the US since January 1, 2010:
Only 9% of the placements came as a direct result of an Internet job posting.
26% of our placements came from Internet databases like LinkedIn, Monster, CareerBuilder, either directly resulting from a search for a specific job, or
indirectly from a candidate who was in our database previously as a result of past Internet search activity
65%, almost two-thirds, of all of our EHS placements came directly from contacts in our proprietary database - they were not sourced from the Internet.
Internet Recruiting Misses Two-Thirds Of The Best Talent
You use the Internet, just like we do. You post jobs on your websites and other job boards, just like we do. Your internal recruiters search the Internet for candidates every day, just like we do.
Yet, even with all of this effort going into Internet recruiting, our clients have selected and hired two-thirds of the best talent as a direct result of contacts in our proprietary database.
