Recruiter Confidence Jumps in October

Even before the November election, recruiters were growing more confident that the executive job market would improve over the next six months. ExecuNet's exclusive Recruiter Confidence Index jumped to 46 percent in October, just below the important 50 percent level that would signal a more expansive and broad based recovery of the executive job market over the next six months.


With Halloween behind us, attention begins to turn toward the end-of-year holidays, at least here in the US. For many job seekers, there is a perception that hiring activity takes a holiday as well, so we surveyed executive recruiters to learn what they're really doing the last couple months of the year.

Where is your company going? How fast will it grow? And will it be able to attract the kind of people and innovation capital necessary to reach its objectives?

What motivates one to start a business, the challenges met along the way, and the obstacles that become opportunity are all part of every entrepreneur's unique story.

But commonality lies in their passion to keep moving forward, despite setbacks, slammed doors or lack of funding.
