What is the hiring market like in this economy?

All indications show that the market for career seekers is very healthy. Because hiring decisions were delayed for more than a year, this last year has been an active market for candidates in our fields of consulting, finance and accounting. Employers are looking for specialized skills and in our view, it is a candidate driven market meaning that candidates are typically receiving more than one offer and have the ability to choose.

Our client base has shown a high number of current openings, but they are very selective in their choices as well which makes for an interesting dynamic of candidates with multiple offers and clients who are making sure that they are spending their people dollars wisely. In our view, if a client finds someone who fits their needs, they are required to make faster decisions given the level of competition for these specialized resources in order to acquire the talent they seek.
