Acquire the Right Talent
It’s a question as old as the recruiting profession itself: How many reqs should one recruiter handle at a time? Even in our data-driven age of hard metrics and objective assessments, the answer is: It depends.
With the unemployment rate at 3.6% (a level not seen in nearly 50 years) and the volume of open jobs at a 17-year high, competition is rising; requiring recruiters to do more with less — and that often means individual recruiters must take on more reqs just to keep making placements.
