Networking for Employment

Did you know over 80% of all jobs are acquired by networking? A survey done in conjunction with LinkedIn determined that the majority of jobs are unpublished so sending resumes should only be a small part of your plan to acquire a position. Your focus should be on networking.

Increasing Employee Retention Rate

Employees who leave abruptly definitely can hurt the company’s growth, especially during the early stages. Finding a replacement, training them can cost a lot more than time and money. It might affect other employees and trigger negativity at work. So, here is what a smart business owner would do to prevent employees from leaving:

  • Make sure you are hiring selectively from the beginning. Consider things like diligence, attitude and integrity amongst other things like academic qualification, skills and experience.
  • Pay them right. Keep a tab on industry compensation standards. Structure the bonus and benefits well.
  • Offer flexible work schedules. Ensure employees are well prepared to do what their job requires like travel, late nights, vacations and so on.
  • Provide comfortable work environment and culture. Provide ample training and support new hires till they can manage on their own.
  • Be generous with praise and recognition. Uncover strategies to reward employees when you cannot afford to do it with money. A simple thank you or a well-done note could do wonders!
  • Give a career road map. Specify what they need to do to achieve the next milestone. Never deny acknowledging when someone meets their goal.



You have applied for so many jobs and finally you are invited for an interview. You also know that you have to be at your best and that is where making a good first impression comes in. Having done your homework well and prepared yourself for the meeting, all you need to do now is to dress well and approach the hiring managers with confidence.


Recruitment agencies can play a critical role in helping companies find talents. Recruitment Company is any external search firm that earns a fee for making a placement with a company.


Are you about to start a job search or are you in the midst of looking for a new job? Are you thinking about waiting to start or putting your job search on hold? If so, think again. Contrary to popular opinion, the holidays are a good time of year to find a job. Employers don't stop hiring just because it's the holiday season. In addition, the holiday season is a perfect time of year to network your way to a new job.
