Poll on Availability of “A” Players
I posted a one-question poll on LinkedIN, and got 17 responses. The question:
More job seekers are available. How difficult is it to hire “A” players?
- Very hard to find “A” players: 11%
- Still a bit hard to find “A”s: 35%
- Much easier to find “A” player: 5%
- The same – “A”s still rare: 47%
My conclusion (which confirms what I thought was the case up front): The wider availability of candidates due to the economic downturn, layoffs, etc. has NOT produced a better pool of people. The “A” players are still productive, working, and not looking for a job.
