Job Ads for Recruiters Bounce Back in January

Wanted Analytics (02/15/12) Abby Lombardi

Wanted Analytics says job ads for staffing professionals jumped 26% in January from the same month last year. Experts believe an increase in demand for recruiters could indicate that companies are planning to hire more workers. Of these job ads, 55% were placed by direct employers and 45% by staffing firms. The most ads for recruiting positions were placed by, Insight Global Inc., PDS Technical Services, Microsoft, and Capital One. The metropolitan areas with the highest volume of ads for recruiter jobs are New York, Washington, DC, Chicago, Boston, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, and Houston.

Wanted Analytics says recruiter positions will be moderately hard to fill. The average duration of a job ad is five weeks nationally, with Seattle recording an average of six weeks. The easiest places to find recruiters are Davenport, IA; Fort Wayne, IN; Springfield, MO; York, PA; and Omaha, NE, which also are areas where recruiters will find it difficult to obtain employment.
