80% of people chasing 20% of the available roles?

Thanks for the comments so far ….
Forgot to say that I am out of the country Wed-Sun so will announce all when I get back …
Look forward to other comments ….
p.s – the prize is not a keyring from Italy 🙂
20% of applicants appear to have 80% of the luck with their applications.
20% of ones time should be spent job searching traditional methods e.g job boards, newspapers while 80% should be spent networking offline.
Spend 80% of your time figuring out what you are going to do with the remaining 20% of your time 🙂
Its on your website! 😉
– under ‘Get yourself a new toy’
‘spend 80% of your time on proactive strategies & 20% of your time in reactive approaches’
I won’t steal your thunder –
read the article folks! 😉
& for those of you job-hunting – the best of luck.
I am going to put all 6 names above into a hat. Will draw the winner tomorrow. Prize is a €50 euro voucher ….. Good luck
If your a recruiter then 80% of your business will come from 20% of your clients.
If your a candidate then similarly use your networking skills with the best 20% of agencies to get 80% of the vacancies.
