DECKSTR PERFECT FIT

Job Referrals for Tech Professionals Who Lack Access to the Right Social Network

Companies are Hiring The Wrong People

   20% of new employees are bad hires 
  – an expensive
mistake that costs $20,000 per hire

THE ISSUES

Certain industry practices and customs have caused companies to hire the wrong candidates.

FEWER QUALIFIED EMPLOYEES

Fewer employees are equipped with all the attributes needed to thrive in a role – as a matter of fact, 46% of new hires fail within their first 2 years

wITHOUt ACCESS, YOU CAN'T ACCESS

With 80% of jobs gained through networking – the right candidate has a < 1% chance of getting the role without a job referral

hiring managers

 22% of hiring managers are not trained well enough to hire the right person – “culture fit” is used as a standard that filters out diverse candidates

Unqualified Job Applicants

There are more candidates applying to jobs that they are unqualified for. Because of the ease of internet applications, more applicants are sending out generic resumes, hoping that by chance they will get at least one offer

exclusive Job Referrals

More companies are relying on job referrals to fill roles but this blocks out qualified employees who do not have a connection at these companies

The Disguise of "Culture Fit"

Hiring managers are using a dangerous philosophy called “culture-fit”. This leads them to hire people who look like them, talk and act like them – a criterion that prevents the growth of a diverse workforce

The Industry Practices that Got Us Here

The Result

ONLY 25% OF JOB APPLICANTS ARE QUALIFIED

75% of job applicants for a given role are not actually qualified to do that role; often lacking the technical and communication skills required.

ONLY 2% OF JOB APPLICANTS GET
AN INTERVIEW

Less than 2 % of job candidates without a referral even get access to an interview. The hire rate for non-referred hires is less than 1%.

75% OF HIRING DECISIONS ARE BASED ON INTUITION

Along with other inequitable standards like "culture fit", hiring managers base their hiring decisions overwhelmingly on their personal intuition.
