LHH Recruitment Solutions has teamed up with the experts at Chmura Economics for a two-part webinar series about the current economic conditions, a potential recession, and the impact these conditions will have on the job market and hiring.


This no-frills, data-driven conversation is broken into two webinars: one for job seekers and one for hiring organizations. Chmura’s economists dive into what the data tells us, and LHH provides real-world examples of what staffing solutions professionals are seeing day-to-day.


For the job seeker.


LHH Brand Strategist Kelsi Stark joins the conversation to share her from-the-field insight on what candidates are experiencing. She highlights two major key points:


  • Remote jobs are not as prevalent as job seekers think. In fact, only 6% of all job ads offer fully remote options. Many companies that went remote through the pandemic have now either returned to the office or moved to hybrid flexibility.
  • Analyst roles are in hot demand. Across all industries and practice areas, there is great demand for skilled analysts. For candidates, upskilling with analyst certifications can make a huge difference in the job search.


Additional discussion topics from the webinar include:

  • An overview of current economic conditions and the impact a potential recession will have on hiring and job availability;
  • The education and skill requirements employers are looking for in new hires;
  • The latest trends in job openings and what industries and occupations are in demand;
  • What the data is telling us about the availability of remote and hybrid jobs;
  • What negotiating power candidates have in this hiring market.
