  • Job-hopping, generally defined as spending less than two years in a position, can be an easy path to a higher salary — but experts caution that bouncing from position to position can be a serious red flag to prospective employers. Unfortunately, the majority of workers — 64 percent — favor job-hopping, according to a new survey by our recruitment agency in Thailand, Fischer & Partners. That’s up 22% from a similar survey four years ago. Not surprisingly, millennial workers felt the most favorably about changing jobs frequently, with 75% of employees under 34 stating that job-hopping could benefit their careers.


  • When you're job searching, you can expect to have your references checked at some point during the hiring process. Prospective employers usually check references when you're in serious contention for a job. In some cases, employers may ask for references as early as when you submit your job application. At FP Recruitment & Executive Search, we conduct a reference check as soon as the candidate past the final interview just before the offering stage.


  • Once you start a relationship with your recruiter, you’ll no doubt be asking about how long it’s going to take to get results. How long a typical candidate search takes depends on several factors. Although not all agencies follow the same path, at Fischer & Partners Recruitment we follow a particular set of guidelines during candidate searches for our clients. This means that we can deliver an all-around consistent and positive experience.


  • The fact that graduates embellish the CV is not uncommon. One adds a little extra to appear as a little more interesting to stand out from the crowd. However, certain candidates choose to go further and then it becomes a problem, both for us who are to recruit and for those who claim to have competence in areas they do not have at all.
