While employees clearly see the need for an updated resume, that doesn’t mean they’re rushing out to post them online.
Only one-third of those surveyed have posted their resume online on job board sites in the last three months. And most people – 43% -- said it’s been more than a year since they’ve posted a resume online at one of these sites.
These results are in line with a recent New York Times article, which quoted hiring managers at several major companies who are relying heavily on employee referrals instead of random applicants from job boards. But regardless, 51% of total respondents said it’s been more than one year since they’ve actually been on a job interview, and only 27% have been to at least one interview at some point in the past three months.
