Executive Job Creation Remains Steady

April 19, 2011 – Executive job creation remains positive as recruiter confidence comes off recent highs and companies indicate plans to cautiously expand leadership teams in the coming six months, according to the results of ExecuNet's Recruiter Confidence Index (RCI). Recruiter confidence has retreated from its recent highs, as ExecuNet's February survey of 183 executive recruiters found 53 percent are “confident” or “very confident” the executive employment market will improve during the next six months. In January, the confidence index had reached an 18-month high of 64 percent. “That the Recruiter Confidence Index remains above the critical 50-percent level is good news for the economy and the executive employment market over the next six months,” said Mark Anderson, president and chief economist of ExecuNet. “This economy, however challenged, continues to create far more executive jobs than it did a year ago. As in past recovery periods, the economy and corporate hiring will cautiously test the waters before moving steadily upward.”
