25% of Job Postings Are Still Open After 60 Days: Here’s What to Do About It


Top recruiters and talent professionals of today are becoming more and more proactive. Instead of filling vacancies once they’re open, they anticipate where the business is headed and actively attract best-fit candidates before there is an explicit need.

But even the best planning is subject to forces beyond our control. In today’s labor market, candidates have many options, and this is leading to longer wait times for even the best recruiters.

As shown in the Indeed Hiring Lab’s latest research into the global hiring market, a full quarter of jobs remain open for more than two months. That’s the longest wait for the highest proportion of positions in any country in the world. When it comes to picking a career in 2016 it’s a job seeker’s market, and ultimately, that’s a good thing.
