NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / December 3, 2021 / Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:RCRT)(NASDAQ:RCRTW) (""), a recruiting solutions platform, has released the results of's Recruiter Index® for November 2021.

After increasing for two months in a  row, candidate sentiment is down to 3.3 out of 5. Nearly 37 percent of recruiters have noted a decline in the volume of applicants they had per role this month as well. 

The majority of recruiters found themselves working to fill roles within the 40K-80K salary range this month. A 12 percentage point increase since August of 2021 when only 22% of recruiters were working on these roles. This shows the increase in demand for mid-tier workers - your factory, retail, and hospitality workers.

As candidates continue to navigate the job market, new experiences are a big factor they are looking for. New experiences had a 5 percentage point increase from October (15 percent) to November (20 percent). Other aspects candidates prioritize are compensation (25 percent) and remote work (23 percent).

The amount of in-person roles (42 percent) continued to increase this month, while hybrid roles continued their downward trend (30 percent.) Hybrid roles are still outpacing remote roles (28 percent), but not by much. 

Sohn touched on the term the Great Reevaluation on CNBC’s The Exchange, to explain how employees’ priorities are shifting when it comes to their next job. “We think companies and employees are really reevaluating when they want to go back, how they want to go back, how should they get paid,” he explained. 

After recruiters reported they were working on a record-high number of backfill roles (53%) last month, they have yet again taken the backseat to new roles, with 49% of roles being backfill and 51% being new in November. Although the gap is small this could mean that companies have started hiring faster in order to fill the existing open positions left by the Great Resignation. 

When recruiters were asked what roles they see the most demand for, the top 10 included:

  1. IT/Software engineering: 23 percent (-8 from October)
  2. Architecture/Engineering:: 19.2 percent (+8 from October)
  3. Accounting/Auditing: 15.5 percent (+5 from October.)
  4. Recruiting/Staffing: 12.7  percent (-2 from October.)
  5. Medical/Healthcare: 9.4 percent (-8 from October.)
  6. Business Services: 6.6 percent (-3 from October)
  7. Retail: 6.1 percent (+4 from October)
  8. Automotive: 5.2 percent (-3 from October)
  9. Sales: 4.7 percent (-4.8 from October)
  10. Hospitality: 4 percent (-1 from October)
