b Self-Helpless: True Tales of a Working Girl: Been There? Done That? You're Hired!

Been There? Done That? You're Hired!

Granted, this focuses on the accounting and finance areas, but I still think it’s interesting. Robert Half International conducted a survey for CFO’s asking them the determining factor in a new hire. It’s universally accepted that it’s all about WHO you know, rather than WHAT you know, right? Wrong! This survey suggests that hiring managers will hire you based on your experience. So there is reason to keep some faith during your next job hunt.

Then again, that’s all fine and good until you find out that your competition for the job (or the promotion) is the president’s son or someone else who is owed a favor by the same hiring manager. That would suck… but that’s life, isn’t it?

(Now that’s more like it! After all, I don’t feel like I’ve gotten my money’s worth until I’ve been properly screwed.)

Digg!
