Demand for Talent is Up!

Admin | 12.02.2015

Our executive search and technical recruitment practices are experiencing a surge in client demand for talent and this trend seems to be occurring throughout the economy, at least within the US and Mexico. In the past six months, our different search and recruiting practices have experienced increases that seem to reflect gains felt elsewhere.

Our executive search and technical recruitment practices are experiencing a surge in client demand for talent and this trend seems to be occurring throughout the economy, at least within the US and Mexico. In the past six months, our different search and recruiting practices have experienced increases that seem to reflect gains felt elsewhere.

We have experienced increased search assignments as well as inquiries regarding future hires among our different executive search and technical recruiting practices, so we took a closer look. The following sectors have experienced increases as seen over the same six month period a year ago. US                                                                   MEXICO Agribusiness & Agriscience: 3%                    Agribusiness & Agriscience: 8% Commercial / Service Sector: 14%               Commercial / Service Sector: 17% Industrial / Manufacturing: 12%                   Industrial / Manufacturing: 39% Information Technology: 9%                         Information Technology: 2%  

The Wall Street Journal printed a front page story for their February 7th weekend edition with headlines, “Job Market Ripe for Liftoff” which seems to mirror our experience over the past few months. The story touts a US Labor Department report that states that the past three months have been the best period of hiring since 1997.

The report goes on to say that the US created more than a million jobs in the past three months with January figures just north of 257,000 new hires.
