You Snooze You Lose – means more now than ever!

In this tight labor market companies have to move fast if they want the best talent available.

The unemployment rate, combined with the ever growing restaurant industry, has employers clambering to compete for top producers.  Employers are making hiring decisions faster than ever.  We have one client who does a phone interview, then a second interview the following Thursday and an offer is made on the spot if the candidate is qualified.  Some clients are making fast offers pending background check vs making a candidate wait for the offer until the background is completed.

A recently published study shows:

  • Almost 60% of recently hired employees in a new Clutch survey, Statistics on the Average Job Search in 2018, landed their new jobs within two months of the job search. Clutch, a business-to-business analyst and marketing firm, said the tight labor market is forcing recruiters to speed up the time-to-hire process in the competition for talent.
  • Almost half of new hires (43%) said they were offered a job in less than two weeks after beginning the application process. With the strong competition for talent, slightly more than half of the survey respondents applied to five jobs or fewer.
  • Almost all newly hired employees (91%) said the interview process influenced their general opinion of an employer. Survey authors recommended employers monitor their online ratings, as candidates are also influenced by what they read on sites like Glassdoor, the report said.

Finding managers has always been a challenge in the hospitality industry and companies are finding they need to be more proactive to source candidates.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Francisco Chevez is one in a million!

    I would like to formally thank Francisco Chevez for helping me get this great District Manager position. Francisco was very professional from the beginning. He was persistent in his search for the perfect opportunity. He presented me with multiple job opportunities, all great. He made me feel as if I was his only client and his top priority. Even after starting the new job, he called back to check on me. Francisco is great at what he does and I’m glad I was paired with him.      

    Sincerely,

    Enzo Mera

  • Matt Lopez nailed it!

    I am thankful for the service that Matt Lopez provided on behalf of Patrice and Associates in finding me and matching me to an excellent job with an energy company in northern Virginia. Matt Lopez discussed the position and the company and advised me on the hiring process. Matt has the intuition to assess me the job candidate, and the employer regarding my personality and the corporate culture to make the match. Matt found a Company that has all the attributes that I have struggled over the past few years to find. I intend to do an excellent job for the Company that I am joining in October 2022. I plan to achieve my immediate objectives, the company’s goals and show that Patrice and Associated backed the right person for the job.                    

    Sincerely,

    Robert Chew

  • I can't thank Karl Busch enough!

    I recently relocated to South Carolina from New York.  At first I tried the usual big company name job search engines, I even reached out to a couple of recruiters but, Karl Busch at Patrice and Associates was the guy who got it done!  His guidance and advice along the way was invaluable.  I was able to secure an Executive Chef position at a high profile restaurant thanks to him.          

    Thank you!
