Episode Transcript

And I don’t think that number will be crazy low just a downtick because January and February were so crazy in terms of like number of placements. So I think, you know, we always talk about recruiting being pretty cyclical and it’s a roller coaster and it’s-

wouldn’t it be nice if we were just like this, but, I’d say so far for the quarter for the year, January and February have been like this.

And like, there’s going to be a point where I think things will kind of start to level out. Yeah, they will, for sure. We’ll keep an eye on it and obviously keep everyone updated on what we see. Absolutely. Well, so fun to go through. I feel like it’s great to be able to take a look at the prior month and make these predictions and we’ll see if we’re right.

I’m always curious. Yeah. Let’s see. We’ll dust on this. We’ll talk about it again. See how we landed. You know we will. Anything else today? I think that’s it, Em. Feel free to take us home. I will take us home. That is a wrap for this week’s episode of the Hirewell Update. Thank you all so much for joining us as a reminder.
