Typically there are scheduling issues for certain times of the year which can add a layer of difficulty to a hiring process. Summer holidays and Winter holidays come to mind. Historically, December has been termed a “slow” month by many employers and by many third party recruiters. But 2017 has not been slow. On the contrary, we may finish December as our best month ever. In nine years of business this has, by far, been our busiest month of closings as well as for new business. I think it’s a reflection of the growing trend to be in a candidate driven environment, with engineering firms really challenged to fill open positions. I’m hearing from other recruiting firms that they are experiencing something similar in their industries, although not to the extent that we have seen. We’re looking forward to helping more firms finish strong, and to help more candidates find jobs that they love, as well as starting 2018 with a bang.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas everyone!
