Demand for Executive Talent Expected to Increase, Study Finds

A new Execunet survey of 138 executive recruiters shows that 64% are confident or very confident the executive employment market will improve during the next six months, despite the declining value of homes and soaring energy and food prices.

And 78% of recruiters expect at least a 10% increase in assignment growth for the rest of the year.

Mark Anderson, the president of ExecuNet, says the outlook for the executive employment market has rebounded. As companies continue to actively recruit seasoned business leaders, “if the pace of job growth at the top of the market maintains its current trajectory, C-suite executives with strong networks should see an increase in interview opportunities during the second half of this year.”
