Poll on Availability of “A” Players

I posted a one-question poll on LinkedIN, and got 17 responses. The question:

More job seekers are available. How difficult is it to hire "A" players?

The responses:

  • Very hard to find "A" players: 11%

  • Still a bit hard to find "A"s: 35%

  • Much easier to find "A" player: 5%

  • The same - "A"s still rare: 47%

My conclusion (which confirms what I thought was the case up front): The wider availability of candidates due to the economic downturn, layoffs, etc. has NOT produced a better pool of people. The “A” players are still productive, working, and not looking for a job.
