- It’s boom times for recruiters as job market tightens
By Patricia Laya and Daniel Flatley - Thursday Jul 6, 2017
While headhunters can get lofty retainers for executive positions, a 16-year-low unemployment rate and a record-high number of job openings are turning workers across all sorts of industries — from construction to trucking to software engineering — into hot commodities.The need is so dire that employers are handing out large signing bonuses, giving second looks to people with blemishes on their resumes and reaching out to professional recruiters more than ever.There were 1.17 unemployed job seekers for every vacancy in April, the second-lowest ratio in data going back to 2000.“It’s a candidate-driven market, and companies are scrambling,” said Jennifer Pearce, vice president at City Staff, a Washington firm that places about 400 hires a year, including people who work in international development and at nonprofit organizations.U.S. employers are estimating a payrolls increase of about 177,000 positions in June, after 138,000 in May, based on the median estimate in a Bloomberg survey ahead of Friday’s Labor Department report.“We’ve got a tight labor market, and job growth will slow this year because businesses are finding it difficult to hire,” said Gus Faucher, chief economist at PNC Financial Services Group in Pittsburgh.Glenn Murphy, partner at recruiter Bamboo Talent in New York, says there’s “so much work to go around” that technology companies — who once would offer the firm retainer fees for only the highest level of talent — are now offering to pay up front for a variety of roles, from chief technology officers down to vice presidents, directors and engineering managers.“To some extent, the labor shortage is a function of employers having unrealistic expectations of what they can get,” said Steven Berchem, chief operating officer at the American Staffing Association in Alexandria, Va.
