The guides also highlight a recent Kforce survey showing that 58 percent of
recruiters say in-demand professionals only stay on the market 20 days or less
– with some reports of five days or less on the market. Seventy-one percent of
Kforce recruiters surveyed also report that these in-demand professionals get
one to three job offers before accepting a job opportunity.

"With the unemployment rate for highly skilled workers in STEM (science,
technology, engineering and math) areas below four percent, employers are
finding that they must focus on compressing the time between interview, offer
and start date to ensure the candidate identified as the right fit, is the one
who ultimately accepts and starts in the position," says Randy Marmon, Kforce
Chief Customer Officer. "Kforce has found that employers can increase their
competitive advantage and meet strategic business initiatives by adjusting
their hiring strategies to attract, secure and retain this group of
specialized professionals."
