“Open Jobs and Good Candidates, but Employers Won’t Commit.” That was the headline of a front page story in The New York Times yesterday.
It cites a U.S. Department of Labor study which found that unfilled positions are now staying open for an average of 23 business days compared to just 15 business days four years ago.
