Candor crowdsources the recruitment landscape

Candor, a salary negotiating tool, has been crowdsourcing the recruitment landscape to help jobseekers understand who is hiring, freezing and firing.

The website traditionally crowdsources and validates salary data to help jobseekers negotiate salaries with new employers but has re-focused its efforts to build an in-depth picture of the recruitment landscape at a time where livelihoods are under threat from the coronavirus outbreak.

Co-founder of Candor David Chouinard is encouraging employees and jobseekers to write into hello@candor.co with updates to the hiring practices of firms around the world. With economies being shaken violently, this information could prove to be incredibly valuable to some.

The list itself is very extensive, though we have taken a snapshot of the technology, telecoms and media industry below:
