Since we work with over 300 clients, we have an excellent view of the employment market. We rely on an internal statistic called ‘burn rate.’ We track how many candidates assess for jobs. Our September burn rate was about half the August rate, indicating fewer job openings.
You should see more candidates in the pipeline.
To help you prepare for the opportunity, we are hosting a free behavioral interviewing workshop in late October. Human resources professionals can earn PDCs, but the real focus of the workshop is to help managers improve their interviewing skills. Anyone who interviews will benefit, and HR professionals get more tools to help colleagues interview better.
