Jobvite's Job Seeker Nation Report


Jobvite 2018 Job Seeker Nation Study


"It’s 2018, and the American workplace is in flux. The economics have shifted, and for the first time in a long time, nearly every qualified candidate is employed. New technologies such as artificial intelligence and automation are transforming entire industries, including talent acquisition, forever. A new generation has entered the workforce, alongside ground-breaking new movements focused on racial and gender inequality."*
