WORK­OUT Sta­bil­ity im­presses

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Career One -

IT is true jobs are easy to find and skills em­ploy­ees harder to re­tain, but em­ploy­ers still pre­fer can­di­dates who will stay on. Re­sumes that show sta­bil­ity are in de­mand, says the Hays quar­terly fore­cast for July to Septem­ber. Two years or less with an em­ployer is a dan­ger sig­nal in a re­sume, re­cruit­ment trends in the fore­cast re­veal.

‘‘ Many em­ploy­ers have in­vested time and re­sources in train­ing new staff only to see them re­sign one year later to chase a higher salary else­where,’’ says Hays di­rec­tor Nick Deli­gian­nis.

‘‘ With a short­age of skills, re­ten­tion is a fo­cus for em­ploy­ers and they value can­di­dates with demon­strated long-term ten­ure on their CV.

‘‘ Some can­di­dates chase short­term gains in the form of slight salary in­creases else­where. Em­ploy­ers pre­fer to wait for a stable can­di­date than risk em­ploy­ing some­one to lose them a short time later.’’
