The team at SemiconductorJobs.com came across an interesting perspective shared by a semiconductor recruiter on LinkedIn:
"The pendulum is swinging full force back in the favor of job seekers. There are tons of open positions right now with more opening every day. I hope companies understand that the days of lowballing candidates are over. 'No, Mr. employer, the candidate will not take a 20% pay cut to be in line with your internal equity because you underpaid for talent the last 18 months.' 'It's about time you look to revise your internal comps or face the realization that your employees will be on every Recruiter's target list in the New Year.'"
