Ask Barb: Job Order to Fill Ratio Averages

Ask Barb

Dear Barb:

Since you speak at so many events, I would love to know if the job order to fill ratio has dramatically increased. We are only filling one out of every fourteen job orders that are written. This number has increased over the past three years. My team is telling me that our numbers are average for today’s market. I’d love to hear what you have to say.
