Signs that the job market is changing has become a weekly discussion with colleagues as we navigate the Talent Acquisition process.
The evidence speaks for itself: qualified candidates are beginning to receive multiple offers of employment, and don’t feel compelled to wait for business owners to make hiring decisions. An August article printed in the Denver Post outlined what we’re noticing by adding that, “One in every four employees loses interest in an opening of they don’t hear back from a prospective employer within a week of being interviewed”. As the climate of the job market continues to evolve, we’re adjusting our approach and refining our process to include a stronger sense of urgency towards candidates. Encouraging our clients to move forward quickly with prospective employees, while still following our evaluation process, may help avoid disappointment when a candidate accepts another offer while we’re taking time to think things over.
