Executive Search, Software Development, and IoT Industries Continue to Expand

Business men closing deal with a handshake

The executive search and recruiting industries are constantly expanding. In fact, one clear sign of the growth in executive search — both retained and contingent — is the increase in agency workers. Agency owners have been adding staff at a steady pace since hitting a recession low of 26,100 workers in late 2009. In September, the most recent data available from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 41,400 people employed in executive search in the U.S.

Software development is another industry in which hiring well-qualified professionals is an absolute must, and most companies simply cannot afford to manage a lot of turnover due to the technical training and level of expertise involved. Working with a retained search recruiter assures that your company will not only find an employee to fill any vacant positions faster than ever before, but the employee will be more qualified and be willing to work for your company for a longer period of time than a traditional employee found through your own resources.

A recent survey of senior marketers by the Economist Intelligence Unit found that the highest percentage (51%) of respondents think that, by 2020, the Internet of Things (IoT) will have made the biggest technology impact on marketing, edging out real-time mobile transactions (50%). The demand for jobs in these fields is higher than ever, and it’s getting more difficult for employers to determine who will work best with their company. This is leading some employers to turn to recruiting firms — specifically, military transition recruiters — to reach a historically underemployed demographic: veterans.

Employers say the top five skills that veterans bring to civilian jobs include self-discipline, teamwork, attention to detail, respect, and leadership, in that order. Working with employees who don’t align with those values can truly hinder any progressive business relationship.

Working with well-qualified employees is an absolute must in any industry. IoT and software development companies are well aware of this, which is why they choose to rely on the help of recruiting agencies.
