How does this tight labor market affect the engineering industry?
The tight supply of qualified candidates in the engineering industry not only increases the mechanical engineer salary, but also requires hiring managers to adapt to new strategies and act very quickly to attain the candidates with top talent.
Many clients have implemented a one day interview with clients making offers that same day just to secure qualified talent. Other clients are having a hard time finding qualified candidates for their direct positions so have switched their focus to temp candidates with the option to hire after 6 months.
What are the advantages of this scenario?
1. Test drive for employer and candidate for perfect fit
2. Perfect match of candidate skill level – will hit the ground running
3. Faster approvals from HR
