From where does your talent come from? Which sources are the most effective?
The latest CareerXroads report re-affirms referrals as the most successful source of new staff, followed by corporate websites and commercial job boards.
CareerXroads report is based on US data. There is a paucity of similar data in Australia. Vedior’s ‘Asia-Pacific Employment Trends Survey 2008’ traced the most popular sourcing tools (unlike the CareerXroad study which measure successful hires) amongst employers. Interestingly, Job boards are more popular than referrals in Asia-pacific.
How does the results above compares with your own?
