A Sense of Urgency

May 23, 2018

With the current unemployment rate sitting at the lowest it has been in the new millennium, it is important to notice that we have what many would call a “Candidates Market.” This term means that jobs are plentiful and individuals looking for work have more options, and offers, than in the last 17 years, making it difficult for companies to fill their needs. The average American would rejoice as this seems to be something that we as a capitalist nation, have been chasing for quite some time after the market crashed in 2008. But on the other side of that is the employer trying to fill open positions. This is a phenomenon that has been expressed by many of my clients in the engineering field, where a shortage of engineers is always prevalent regardless of unemployment rates. TriMech Staffing sees one solution that could remedy your competition with other companies when offering a candidate a position.
