Have we shifted from an employee market back to an employer market due to the recession / inflation? My stress levels are at an all time high as the work piles up, and I can’t help but wonder if employers think they’re now in a position to push people without the consequences of high turnover. I see reports that the job market is still really strong, but does that apply to advertising?

I think it really depends on the department/role. Some roles are still hard to find enough qualified people to fill positions for.

The talent market is quite empty currently, I think people choosing to stay put as we head to tougher times. So I’d say for firms trying to recruit it’s quite hard to find good people and that means it’s still sort-of a candidate market. The challenge / result being offers to people switching end up a noticeable amount above people internally at the same level, so maintaining fairness becomes pretty tough. The next round of pay reviews is going to be tough, and is highly likely to lock in and prolong inflation. That raise is going to tell you all you need to know about how valued you are or not.

Yup. Power move by the companies

I feel myself feeling like I have to stay all day and go in for all the RTO days vs the flexibility others are starting to practice.

It’s started shifting back yes

I am looking at the moment and opportunities are thin on the ground.

Yes, the new dynamic is companies are battening down the hatches, so lots of hires on hold. So you’re right this does swing power back to the few employers looking.

USAJ now shows the number of applicants for a position you've applied for after the posting has closed. For example, my sister applied for a program manager position at NASA that had 465 applicants. She also applied to a position at a small agency that had 53 applicants.

There's more that goes into actually getting interviewed (vets pref, direct hire, etc), but now you can at least see how many people you're competing against!
