Hiring managers at major job search firms are warning of a new problem in the job market: the hiring of women.
The problem is the rise of women who are “more likely to take on lower-paying jobs, such as those in restaurants, hotel and food service and to be paid less, according to a survey of job seekers by The Next Big Thing, a job search consultancy.
The company also surveyed job seekers from the top 100 largest U.S. employers to see how hiring was changing.
The survey found that only one in four of the jobs that were filled by women were part-time or part-year positions.
It also found that women accounted for less than 1 percent of all job applicants for full-time positions.
The survey was released Thursday.
The problems are becoming more acute, said John DeMarco, CEO of The Next BIG Thing.
Many of the companies have a high turnover rate and don’t know how to hire and retain a new workforce.
DeMarco is the CEO of Big Data analytics firm Teneo, which offers hiring and career services.”
People have to make that decision themselves.””
It’s an absolute lack of information about what people are looking for.
People have to make that decision themselves.”
One example: In 2016, The NextBig Thing surveyed 2,100 job seekers and found that the top 25 most-requested questions were:How do you find the right person for your job?
Who would you like to work for?
What skills do you need?
Why do you want to work here?
How do I find out if you have the right skills and experience?
What are the best places to work?
What kind of work would I like to do?
In 2018, the survey found only 7 percent of those interviewed had a candidate they wanted to hire.
That is a drop from the last survey conducted in 2015, when only 4 percent of jobseekers said they wanted a candidate to hire them.
Teneo has launched a pilot program to hire a handful of women into the IT department.
And hiring and retention expert Richard Reeves, CEO and co-founder of CareerCast, said hiring women for IT is critical for companies to remain competitive.
“The best thing you can do to hire is to find out what people want,” Reeves said.
“It’s very, very important.
If you don’t hire people, you can’t be competitive.
And you can only compete if you hire people.”
DeMarco said there is still a lot of uncertainty about how employers are recruiting and retaining women.
Companies are looking at everything from demographics and training to social media platforms, he said.
But he said he has no concerns about the hiring trends.
He also said it is critical to find the best people for the job.
“People want to get the job,” he said, “but people want to do it at a level of quality that is competitive.”
