How Companies Find Candidates to Hire

A CareerXRoads study presents information on how employers are finding candidates to fill their jobs. The chart below shows that Employee Referrals and the Internet make up over 50% of all hires. College hires are gaining momentum as is Direct Sourcing from competitors and other companies.

From this information one can see that networking online (through social networking sites and blogging) and off (through co-workers and friends) is critical to your next career move.
