If you think you have many titles, being a ‘luminary’ and shine for your ideas at work guarantees a good position, we tell you what they think of this year recruiters in the field.
We want to congratulate you if you are reading this and have a good position. Look no further what contacts you have on your LinkedIn profile and you will realize that you do not have to complain so much about hard work, those that are 8 or more working hours, where you have to put up with a boss who does not have a face like ‘few’ friends’, or where he has been doing the same thing for years and do not recognize his best effort with a salary that compensates.
If you start reading among your contacts in this professional network, you will see updates from people who say they have been finding work for more than three months, with more than 500 resumes and vacancies applied, even accepting projects of two or three months. They question their lack of work commitment, but they are discriminated against because, unfortunately, working on these projects has been the only way to get income that has worked for them.

While 15% of employers expect to increase their staff, 7% anticipate a decrease and 76% do not forecast any change, resulting in a Net Employment Outlook of + 8%. The intention of hiring, cleaning the results by seasonality, an expectation of + 6%, which is presented as the weakest reported in more than 8 years, declining by 2 and 6 percentage points quarterly, the survey indicates.
