(By MATT DEUTSCH)
Well, as soon as I blog about the fact that much continues to be written about this country's anemic economic recovery, I come across yet another such article.
A link to that article is below:
Of course, on the heels of my most recent blog post regarding the fact that over 60% of recruiters indicate that candidates are receiving more multiple offers than they were a year ago, this begs a host of questions. I’ve listed some of those questions below:
1. Are recruiters as pessimistic as everybody else in terms of the economy and recovery?
2. If so, do recruiters have reason to NOT be as pessimistic as everybody else?
3. If recruiters are in the business of placing the very best talent and companies are willing to pay them a fee for placing that talent, shouldn’t recruiters be optimisticabout whatever conditions exist?
4. Should recruiters be optimistic about the economy if that economy favors them . . . or only if it favors everybodyin the workforce?
These are all good questions to consider. What’s your take on them? Are you optimistic about the economy and/or the recovery, based on what you’re seeing on your recruiting desk?
