Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (OTCQB:RCRT), a leading hiring platform with the world's largest network of small and independent recruiters, presented the results of the Recruiter Index® for July 2020 live on CNBC on 8/6/20.
Recruiter.com reported that although overall recruiter sentiment turned down a bit, from 3.3 in June to 3.1 in July, it stands markedly higher from the beginning of the outbreak. Also, Recruiter.com found that only 22 percent of recruiters expect demand for talent to fall further over the next 30 days, and a majority expect their workloads to improve in the next 90 days.
The subsequent jobs report on 8/7/20 showed job gains of nearly 1.8 million in July 2020, which beat expectations, with the unemployment rate falling to 10.2% in July from 11.1% in June.
“Our recruiter network was able to predict for the 3rd month in a row the approximate trajectory and breadth of the actual job market, proving once again how valuable this network is, not just for finding talent, but as a leading indicator of the job market and economy,” said Evan Sohn, CEO of Recruiter.com. “We were also happy to learn the recruiters surveyed by Recruiter.com were optimistic for a strong recovery, with over 77% believing that demand for talent will stay stable or increase.”
