Finding yourself using every resource possible to land that ideal job? Running out of ideas? Well, according to the Monster Hiring Survey Infographic, 80.8% of recruiters find their candidates from current employees.

In addition to referrals, the Monster survey stated that 72.4% of recruiters use major online job boards and 51% of recruiters or employers use social media sites. These statistics demonstrate that as a job seeker it is imperative to have an online presence. Updating and staying active with your social media accounts could potentially find your new employer!

Referrals are extremely valuable to a recruiter or employer. That’s why at LeadingEdge we have our referral rewards program. When a temporary employee refers someone to us and the person referred worked at least 40 hours, we offer the temporary employee a $20 gift card!
