10 New Stats Vital to Your Job Search Success

I love – each year they come out with a report regarding the job search “numbers” you need to know. And I like how granular they are with the details – right down to the sampling size: From their latest report: 2018 Job Seeker Nation Study: “As a rule, we do not rely on the validity of very small subsets of the data, especially sets smaller than 50-75 respondents.” For this year their sampling size was 1509 recruiters.

Here’s 10 takeaways:

82% – the percentage of job seekers open to new job opportunities.

35% – the percentage of married people who negotiated their compensation.

26% – the percentage of single people who negotiated their compensation.

19% – the percentage of people listing “Compensation” as the #1 factor for leaving a role.

25% – the percentage who applied to their current role via LinkedIN

30% – the percentage of job seekers who left a new job in 1st 90 days.

85% – the percentage of job seekers who received higher pay by negotiating their compensation.

44% – of those that negotiated their compensation, received 5-10% increase.

21% – of those that negotiated their compensation, received 11-20% increase.

22% – rejected a potential employer due to reviews on Glassdoor or other public company reviews.

By the way, it’s not your imagination: to find the “right” role, where you have fun, make good coin, and potentially hang out for 7+ years is not an easy task. You can achieve that goal – it takes preparation. If you’d like to know how we prepare and package you for success, call us. We work with experienced sales candidates seeking a role in Med Devices, Biotech or Pharma. We promise to be the shortest easiest path to the role you love – that’s what we do here.
