Insider Talk about Career Path & Job Search at Rutgers University

On April 22, 2015, a special career event was held by KSEA (Korean American Scientists and Engineers Association) members at Rutgers University. Mr. Andrew Sungsoo Kim, our President & CEO and Mr. Richard Park, our VP & COO were invited as the guest speakers to deliver a lecture on "Career Path & Job Search", addressing before KSEA student members at the Busch Campus of Rutgers. Mr. Kim provided an inspirational, life-planning advice designed primarily to help them develop a healthy career and live a fulfilling life. In essence, he not only shared key career development advice, but also a self-improvement guide and life strategy. Mr. Park discussed about the current job market trends, growing industries, job search tips, among others.  Messrs. Kim and Park also shared with students about their perspectives on finding and mapping one’s career path. Following the presentations, students had a chance to have a Q&A session with the guest speakers along with Dr. Jaeyoung Kwak, President of KSEA NJ Chapter, and Dr. K. Stephen Suh, President of KSEA NY Chapter, who attended the event.

Increased Emphasis on Using Social Networks for Recruiting Candidates

It’s no secret that both employers and candidates are using social networks to increase their online exposure. If you thought that 2014 was big for social networking, then 2015 is going to blow you away. Jobvite’s research shows that 73% of recruiters plan to invest more in social recruiting this year, which tells us that hiring trends are evolving at a rapid pace. While 94% of recruiters are using LinkedIn, the next in line is Facebook, used by 66% of recruiters. Social sites are now one of the hottest platforms available for finding best candidates, with both quality and quantity of candidates proven to improve when a proper social recruiting strategy is put in place. As part of our overall strategy, we are expanding our social network profile, thereby building stronger relationships with our existing and future clients and candidates.
