Execunet Reports 30th Months of Executive Job Creation
June was the 30th
consecutive month with a positive Executive Job Creation Index since the recession of 2008-2009. However, in June, Execunet reports that Executive Job Creation Index dip to +8, down from +24 in February 2012.
The good news is that executive recruiters continue to see almost one in five companies planning to add executive-level positions in the next six months. They also only see about three percent of companies planning to eliminate executive jobs over the next six months. The major dip in the index in June came about by more companies placing current searches on hold.
- Companies continue to hire but at low levels overall.
- Opportunity exists in this market with the one in five companies that intend to hire in the next six months. Also, over 50 percent of companies say they are willing to trade up with new hires for existing jobs. "A" players are still in demand but you won't find opportunities being actively searched for and will need to network your way in front of decision-makers.
