Interesting Stats

A recent hiring survey by CareerXroads showed some changing statistics among the 1.2 million employees responding (along with nearly 2,000 recruiters/sourcers filling some 188K positions during 2006). Most notable:

* 33.9% of all open positions were filled by internal transfers and promotions

* Referrals (25.6%) are arguably the number one external source with employee referrals making up some 95% of all hires in this category

* The Internet is increasingly the major means to apply and communicate no matter what the original source

* 20.7% of all external hires attributed to "company website"

* Hires attributed to specific job boards and generic niche boards represent 12.3% of external hires (this is a significant jump over the 5-7% often reported in recent years)

* Importantly, the largest trends were the growth of re-hires as a source of hire and the emergence of search engine advertising; direct sourcing also remains strong. Anyone thinking of coming back out of retirement?
