Company Updates CEO discusses candidate-driven jobs market on latest CNBC interview

Jun 03, 2021 / by  Sarah Schultz
Sarah Schultz CEO Evan Sohn joined Kelly Evans on CNBC's The Exchange for the 13th consecutive month to discuss May's recruiter sentiment ahead of the Labor Department’s monthly jobs report.

"Remote work is up. In-person requirements are up. We're seeing a struggle of recruiters trying to find candidates," shared Sohn, "It truly is a candidate market."

He added, "This month, there's more money going to those lower, hourly waged jobs. And that's really this talent pool - where do you find these workers? You're seeing this reshuffling of talent pools. You have millions of underemployed college and high-school-educated workers. We think that's a great pool to start pulling from. You change the narrative. You increase salaries, increase perks... You'll find those candidates." Shared Sohn.
