My latest Memphis Daily News column is out, “Talent Takes the Wheel.”
As the economy continues to improve, employers are beginning to think of what they can do to attract and retain the best talent. In fact, I was just asked for tips on this very topic by a local employer.
Indeed.com recently released an interesting new study, “The Talent Driven Economy: Emerging Interests of Today’s Job Seeker.” The study notes that when the recession was at its worst in 2009, there was only one job available for every 6.2 unemployed job seekers. Those looking for a job were just happy to have one. Today, there’s one job available for every 1.7 unemployed job seekers.
This is great news, both for the unemployed and for the employed who have been waiting to move on to a new job for a few years.
Indeed’s report focuses on the interests of today’s job seekers, including the types of job searches that are growing and other influencing factors.
