Outsourcing Poll Reveals Overwhelming Concern Among Workers
NEW YORK, NY - July 16, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- An overwhelming 71% of Americans are concerned
that the trend of outsourcing jobs to foreign countries will affect their job security or earning
potential, according to an online survey conducted at the web site of career management firm BH
Careers International (www.BHCareers.com). Nearly 1,239 visitors completed the survey that was
conducted between April 15 and July 14, 2004.
"Worker confidence was hit hard by years of high unemployment and a slow economy," said Jerry
Weinger, Chairman of BH Careers International, whose company assists professionals and executives
with job searches. "The outsourcing trend has added to that fear factor. The best solution is to be
prepared -- especially if you work in a high-risk field like information technology or customer
support. Don't hang onto past job titles, instead identify which skills and accomplishments would be
most valuable in other fields."
Other recent statistics have also demonstrated that many professionals see outsourcing threatening
their own workplace security. In a recent survey from the Employment Law Alliance (ELA), 30% of the
respondents answered that they did know of someone, including a family member, friend or co-worker,
who had lost a job due to offshoring.
"If your industry is dying -- get out," said Weinger, whose company has offices throughout the United
States, Canada, England, Scotland, the Middle East and Australia. "Fortunately, changing fields
doesn't always mean starting over. It's a matter of selling the benefits of your past experiences to
For those who are investigating new fields, Weinger advised, "Networking will open doors that a
resume might not. Conduct information-gathering interviews that enable you to sell your expertise
and build credibility with potential employers. These meetings often lead to job offers, and you
aren't competing with a huge pool of want-ad respondents who may offer more directly related
experience on their resumes."
