If you’re a recruiter (and you probably are, if you’re reading this), then you have no end of problems with both candidates and clients.
The only question is this: “Which problem are you experiencing at the moment?”
In our never-ending quest for answers, we decided to pose this question in the form of a poll, specifically a poll for the Preferred Member recruiters in Top Echelon Network.
These are third-party recruiters in the trenches, day in and day out. They have their pulse on everything that’s happening in the recruiting industry, especially the obstacles that recruiters are currently facing.
With that in mind, below is the question that comprised our most recent recruiter poll:
What’s your biggest problem with candidates right now?
The choice of answers that we provided is listed below, along with the percentage of recruiters who selected each one:
As you can see, the problem that most recruiters consider to be their biggest is not having enough qualified candidates, with just over two-thirds of respondents choosing that answer.
All other answers were far behind, although “relocation” did garner almost one-fifth of the vote. That underscores the fact that the state of the housing market still has an impact on the world of recruiting.
Behind those two, “counter-offers” and “fall-offs” made up just a small piece of the problem pie. Nearly five percent chose the answer of “other problem.”
What about your situation? What’s your biggest problem when it comes to candidates? Is it finding enough qualified ones? Is it relocation? Or is it something else?
