Nearly two-thirds of employers expect a rise in voluntary turnover as the economy improves and market demand increases for specialized skills.
With an improving economy, employers are increasingly concerned about employee retention. The threat of a mass talent migration of workers searching for better employment opportunities is forcing more companies to evaluate and improve employee retention programs.
I was speaking to a group of job seekers recently about the “new rules” of networking and the following question came up:
I’ve connected with a lot of people and they’ve all been very helpful in giving me advice and answering my questions. Some even agreed to meet with me for informational interviews. But now, I just don’t know what to do next. I can’t ask them for more help, and I don’t know how to keep the networking going. What can I do to keep them engaged without them feeling like I’m nagging them for help in finding a job?
This is a common problem job seekers experience. Nobody wants to be seen as a “networking nuisance.” Especially people looking for work, since networking is the number one method for getting a job these days.
