CAREERS & RECRUITING
T hese days, job-seekers are increasingly likely to research potential employers, according to a survey by Accountemps. Almost 80% of executives surveyed said that today’s candidates display knowledge of the company or its industry during interviews. That’s up from almost 60% in a 1997 survey.
However, some candidates may be missing an opportunity to show what they’ve learned.
Only 44% of the executives said job candidates demonstrate knowledge of the company or industry in their cover letters, up from 37% in 1997.
