Share Article

In April 2012, more than 5,800 job ads were posted online for Recruiters, increasing 10% year-over-year, according to WANTED Analytics™.

During April 2012, more than 5,800 jobs were advertised online for Recruiters, according to WANTED Analytics™ (http://www.wantedanalytics.com), the leading source of real-time business intelligence for the talent marketplace. Hiring increased more than 10% year-over-year when compared to April of 2011 and more than 33% versus April 2010. As employers expand their recruiting staff, this can signal plans to hire more workers across the entire organization.

Potential candidates for Recruiter jobs are often required to have knowledge or experience of several tools and technologies, including:

1. Microsoft Office (including PowerPoint, Word, Outlook, Excel)
2. Oracle HRIS
3. Customer relationship management (CRM)
4. Word processing
5. Applicant tracking software (ATS)
6. Data mining
7. Candidate tracking
8. Social networking sites
9. Contact management
10. Workforce management

The five metropolitan areas with the highest volume of job ads for Recruiters during April were New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas, and Washington (DC). Although Recruiters in New York posted the most ads of any city, hiring demand over the past year actually declined about 1% compared to the same time month in 2011. In comparison, Recruiters in Dallas saw the most year-over-year growth of these five locations, with 27% more job ads than were seen online in April 2011.

Nationwide, companies sourcing candidates with animation skill sets are likely to find them moderately hard-to-recruit, with varying degrees of difficulty in each location depending on the available talent supply. According to the Hiring Scale™, employers in Los Angeles are currently experiencing more difficulties than average when sourcing for Recruiter job openings. While demand for this skill has grown, the local talent pool of qualified professionals has not grown as the same rate. Employers in this area are likely to compete heavily to attract talent and may experience a longer time-to-fill than many other areas across the United States. The Hiring Scale also shows that the best places to recruit Animators are currently Omaha (Nebraska), Jackson (Mississippi), and Huntsville (Alabama). These areas are likely to fill job openings faster than the rest of the United States. Job ads in these areas are posted for an average of about 4 weeks, 1 week shorter than in Los Angeles.

The Hiring Scale measures conditions in local job markets by comparing hiring demand and labor supply. The Hiring Scale is part of the WANTED Analytics platform that offers business intelligence for the talent marketplace.
