Because people are often looking for people with an unlimited willingness to travel, who are also willing to live out of a suitcase for several years. Or jobs are advertised that sound good at first click, but are actually difficult to fill permanently due to the poor working atmosphere. Dream jobs are rarely there.

In addition to the unpopular ones, there are more and more highly specialized jobs that land in job markets. Generalist positions, which clearly represent the majority of the entire vacancy, are found less and less in the form of an advertisement. Even smaller ones Companys would very rarely search with an ad. Instead, business owners and recruiters are activating recruiting managers instead of the Headhunter increasingly your own Network or hers Employees. After all, someone recommended to you can't be that bad, can it?

Job search in the network: old-fashioned or the latest trend?

I know the story of an entrepreneur from Berlin who, instead of posting in job exchanges, simply does one eMail sent to his Xing contacts. In it he advertised open positions in sales, including a description of the good working environment. His argument, which was based on personal experience: the chance on this path is right Candidates to get is clear higher than via a normal display.

The logic behind this seemingly old-fashioned approach: Anyone who recommends someone from their network usually knows this person and not only has specialist knowledge, but also that Personality assess - and this is often the most important foundation outside of the specialist world.

Recruitment by employee recommendation; People of the same kind stick together

In addition, employees who have proven to be good employees usually have such friends and acquaintances. Like and like like to join. And then there is the financial aspect: For employers, this form of Job Search usually also the cheapest and therefore also the most promising variant with an excellent Costs-To use-on account.

What does this mean for job seekers? Anyone who is socially isolated and also avoids the Internet is getting more and more of a problem. Because experts expect that the indicated trend will continue to intensify. In the meantime, the first companies have already launched recommendation and bonus programs for employees who welcome new colleagues to the Team Recruiting - along with a special bonus in the event of low fluctuation.
