The last eight years have taken their toll on the economy and on us as a country. The weight has been felt personally, emotionally and financially. But maybe, just maybe, there’s a light at the end of the long, dark tunnel. Sixty-eight percent of search firm recruiters we surveyed say the “war for talent” will be back by the end of 2015. When asked about what they’re seeing in the executive job market, they say things are getting easier for the candidate and harder for the recruiter. They have a harder time now compared to five years ago to get executives to respond to their calls; say hiring managers are more willing to negotiate offers; and hiring decisions are being made more quickly because their clients fear missing out on top candidates.
Two out of every three executives surveyed are thinking about leaving, or are already preparing to leave, their company. The question is: Are they as prepared for their job search as they think they are?
No, not really.
