U.S. Hiring Trends: Q1–Q4 2015
Thursday, Mar 17, 2016
This report presents quarterly trends over the course of 2015 in a sample drawn from iCIMS’ customer base of more than 3,500 contracted customers. The data is generated automatically by user interactions with iCIMS hiring software. The main focus is on what we refer to as the talent supply-to-demand ratio and the average number of days it takes U.S. employers to fill open positions. Both sets of data are presented as an average across the iCIMS customer base in 2015, as well as broken down by industry, region, and company size. The industry-level analysis is based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) classification system, with some categories aggregated to a higher level of organization or omitted altogether, in order to maximize the representativeness of the dataset.
