Hello job seekers. If you find any links that don't send you where they should, then let me know. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing, https://www.scribd.com/document/339143941/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Feb-13
This week I will discuss something that I have talked about previously. Promoting internally or hiring externally. Is it better for an organization to find someone from within the organization to receive a new job opening or do they hire someone from the outside? Let's look at the benefits of each.
1) A known commodity. The organization knows what you can do and how you fit in.
2) Less likely to leave.
3) Cheaper to hire. Paperwork already completed.
4) They are more acclimated with the organizational culture, procedures and connections.
5) Good for morale.
1) Bring new ideas to an organization versus same old way of thinking.
2) More likely to find best person for job.
3) Promoting within can cause conflict issues if more than one current employee applies for the same job.
There may be five reasons posted here to promote internally versus three reasons to hire externally, but how much value is given on each category depends on the Human Resources people and the Hiring Manager.
