According to new data, increased levels of hiring are to be expected in consultancy in 2013.
86% of consulting recruiters expect to see hiring activity greater or equal to 2012. The suggestion is that there will be a consistent increase in hiring throughout the year. Increased levels of graduate hiring is also to be expected.
The survey also found that social media channels are only used by a small number of candidates when searching for jobs in consultancy. While the majority have LinkedIn profiles and consider themselves to be active users, most candidates only use social media to expand their professional network – not as a tool for finding jobs.
Strongest levels of hiring are expected in financial and IT consulting.
The findings come from the Top Consultant 2013 survey, compiled of over 1,000 participants including recruiters and consulting candidates.
