+ About the Alaant Advisor
The Alaant Advisor is our column focused on all things going on in the world of recruiting, job placement, and search. Think of it as your weekly briefing—a handy, quick guide to what's going on.

Here's what's happening this week:

Last Week’s QOTW Poll Results:

Q: How impacted is your organization by the end of summer/back to school time?

Extremely- 22%

Slightly - 32%

Not at all - 46%

The end of summer can be many things. For parents, it signals back to school (meeting new teachers, getting new schedules for extra curriculars and more). For others, it’s a trigger to get back to business! Historically, it also tends to be one of the lowest applicant response windows as candidates are trying to get back in the swing of things.  If your recruiting is feeling this pinch, reach out to the professionals at Alaant for help today!
