Where is the first place you go to look for a job? If you haven’t searched for a job in awhile, you may not be investing your time appropriately.According to the “Top Sources of Hire 2015″ report by talent management software provider SilkRoad, the top sources of hires may surprise you. This study will shows where companies have found new hires so you can restructure where you are investing your time and effort. The study analyzed the success of internal sources of hire, such as company career sites, employee referrals and internal recruiters. It also analyzed​ the success of external sources of hire, such as job boards, recruiting agencies and job fairs. The overall top six sources of hire were employee referrals, job search engines, current employees, job boards, recruiters and company career sites or websites.In order to improve the odds of you landing a job, diversify your search across these top six sources. The questions should help you recalibrate how you invest your time. And, of course, don’t overlooked the fact that you first need to meet the as many of the job requirements as possible.​Where can you find employees who can refer you? Even before you begin reaching out to your network to announce you are looking (either overtly or covertly) for a new job, it’s important you first identify companies for whom you would like to work. If you don’t know any one inside those companies, ask people in your network to introduce you. Using LinkedIn is invaluable for uncovering this information. Do you want a promotion? The good news is that companies are still interested in promoting from within. Your next job could be right under your nose, so be sure you are polling your colleagues to see what opportunities are coming up.Research jobs inside your company just as you would outside. Conduct due diligence by fully exploring why the position is available and what the scope of the job is. Also speak with people within the department to learn about the leadership style and culture within that group.Which job boards are worth your time? Job boards aren’t dead yet. According to SilkRoad data, these two big-name boards were best at converting applicants into new hires: Nigeria Job Bucket, LinkedIn. Should you befriend recruiters? Third-party recruiters and recruiting agencies can be worth your time – if you understand how to work with them. Be specific about the types of roles you are interested in and your salary requirements.Remember, recruiters don’t work for you; they work for the company with a job to fill. Some jobs are only filled through recruiters, so it’s just one more option for you to explore.Have you checked the company’s career site? Not all companies will post opportunities to job boards, and aggregators don’t typically pick up the postings from company sites. It’s important to visit company career sites regularly to keep up with news and openings. Hannah Morgan writes and speaks on career topics and job search trends on her blog Career Sherpa.
