In a recent article from the Phoenix Business Journal, several executive recruiters weighed in on whether or not Phoenix is an attractive location for job seekers. When asked the question, “Is it getting easier or more difficult to attract qualified candidates to the Phoenix area?” nearly all of the recruiting professionals responded with very positive feedback.
For example, MDI Group Phoenix Managing Director Allan Dunn shared his perspective on the city’s appeal for qualified technology candidates. “‘It is about the same to draw candidates to the Phoenix area,’” Dunn said. “‘The home-buying market is starting to improve, which will help and the overall economy in Phoenix feels stable. One of the challenges is that there are few large companies that are headquartered in Phoenix, but we seem to have several technology hubs that make Phoenix a focus for technology careers.’”
As the area continues to draw qualified candidates, the role of executive search firms is crucial. MDI Group was recently ranked at #8 on the “Top Executive Search Firms” list in the Phoenix Business Journal’s Book of Lists. As a respected search firm in the area, the MDI Group team in Phoenix is ready to draw on local market expertise and experience to help organizations find “best fit” resources for their IT staffing needs.
