“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.

  • Stephanie reached out to me at a time when I was thinking about looking for a new job but was not quite sure where to begin. From our first call together she was professional and friendly. We talked a lot about my current position, previous jobs and what I was looking for in the future. From our conversations she made a new resume for me that was specific to Susiecakes. Stephanie was always on top things communicating with Susiecakes as well as myself. She was always easy to reach via phone, texts, and emails. Furthermore it really felt like Stephanie was on my side and wanted what was best for me. She listened to my concerns and negotiated on my behalf. In the end I was hired in a position that I think will be beneficial for both myself and Susiecakes. Even after I started my job a work text was accidentally sent to her and she promptly sent it to me. Still looking out for me even after I received the job. I have since referred her to an old coworker and am certain that she will find them a great job as well. I will continue to recommend to Stephanie Yee to only the best culinary professionals that I know. Sincerely, Andrew From our first call together she was professional and friendly.
