The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says with a recovering economy there are lots of jobs needed to be filled – 8.1 million of them.
So why is it so hard to find people willing to work any of these positions?
There are several theories when it comes down to it. Businesses are doing whatever they can to get those jobs filled. That includes huge incentive plans, everything from signing bonuses to cash paid for referrals. Companies hold mass hiring events to fill jobs. “I’d be lying if I said there’s a flood of applications coming in every day,” said Jay Spungin, Director of Operations for Mac’s Speed Shop.
