Every month, Recruiter.com surveys its network of 30,000+ independent recruiting and talent acquisition specialists to better understand the challenges and opportunities facing the industry.
Recruiter sentiment fell slightly in September, from 3.9 in August to 3.8 this month. However, a host of other indicators point to bustling job market activity. Average recruiter workloads hit their highest point on record, candidate sentiment increased for the first time since November of last year, and average salaries are rising.
Recruiters also reported increasing demand for talent across a wide array of industries, including logistics, healthcare, IT, and a 10-percentage-point jump in demand for recruiters and talent acquisition professionals, suggesting that employers need a lot of hiring help right now.
