With the economic recession negatively impacting the recruiting and staffing industry, could implementing recruiting software help your company?

Sendouts recently released the results of its 2009 Recruiter Economic Survey, which found that the economy is not helping the industry. Respondents were asked questions that compared their current numbers to what they were before the current economic recession.

Prior to the downturn, only 6 percent of respondents handled between one and three job orders at a time, but since the downturn began, that number has increased to 44 percent. The number of respondents handling larger volumes of job orders also has been affected, with 24 percent handling 10 or more job postings at the same time prior to the recession and only 5 percent currently falling into that category.
