Posted by Hiregy Staff on Aug 2, 2013 9:00:00 AM

Without a doubt, the last several years have been a hiring manager's market.  An open position could easily command 100 or more qualified applicants and competition for available work was fierce.  Employers had certain luxuries and a substantial advantage over those seeking work.  Companies could seemingly command highly qualified, or even over-qualified employees at lower wages than in past times.  They had their choice among a large pool of potential employees -- applicants eager to find a job and willing to work for less compensation.  The best employment agencies Tampa Fl had to offer were flooded with shining resumes.
