OK, so those of you who have recently tried to hire somebody, how has it gone?
We are a well-known firm (though not as much in planning) and are among the top-ranked businesses to work for locally and nationally. We have recently been trying to hire senior people in planning, landscape architecture, and engineering, but have not been seeing the candidates we want. We get few resumes and then the ones we get often do not meet the requirements listed in the ad. From my discussion with competitors, they are seeing the same issue. Is this your experience? What do you think is going on? And how are you being successful with your recruiting?
