+ About the Alaant Advisor
The Alaant Advisor is our column focused on all things going on in the world of recruiting, job placement, and search. Think of it as your weekly briefing—a handy, quick guide to what's going on.

Here's what's happening this week:

Last Week’s QOTW Poll Results:

Q: How hard do you think it will be to fill your next opening(s)?

-Easy (will fill it within 30 days) 23%

-Moderate (most likely a 60-90 day turnaround) 58%

-No shot (this is going to be a grind, 3+ months) 19%

Over the last 10+ years, we’ve seen that most businesses underestimate how quickly a job can be filled. Some of this is being hopeful, but the stats we’re sharing this week are telling. Nearly ¾ of our responses will take at least 60 days to fill their next opening. That’s being optimistic! That’s not every role, but it points to the trends occurring in our local hiring scene.  Revisiting your recruiting strategy is a must – Alaant is here to help. Reach out today!
