“Despite the rise of online recruiting technologies, hiring hasn’t become much easier – especially given today’s low unemployment rates and widening skills gap,” said Steve Flook, President and CEO, iHire. “Our survey findings confirmed many of the concerns we are hearing from each group, such as employers’ struggle to find qualified candidates and candidates’ frustration with a lack of communication from employers. To connect companies and candidates more efficiently, both sides must prioritize the right blend of tools and tactics while taking the time to better understand each other’s needs.”
A total of 576 employers and 1,077 job seekers responded to iHire’s survey in February 2019. Surveys for each group were shared with its database of members and non-members across more than 50 industries, with varying company sizes and candidate age groups.
