:: Singapore job seekers prefer SPH newspapers

Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) newspapers are the preferred medium for job seekers, according to the Singapore Workforce Survey (SWS) findings.
The SWS shows that 84 ercent of job seekers rely on SPH newspapers for recruitment opportunities.
That is more than double the number that use the Internet - the second most poplular medium - for the same purpose.
In addition, six in 10 of those who use SPH newspapers in their job search said they were eventually offered jobs, compared to 15 percent of those who used the Internet.

Working with human resource leaders in a variety of companies for the past two decades, I find that many of them are not tuned to the actual needs of the employer or employee. Caught up in the tempests of downsizing, compliance demands, acquisitions, mergers, and reorganizations, they are engaged in activities that have little to do with their central mission of filling a position with the right individual, instead looking at their own profit margin by providing a “body”.
