External Environment of a Service Company

I need to examine the external environment of a recruitment company (for my dissertation), and I'm looking for a model that I can use. Of course I will use the PEST method, but that will only cover the macro environment. Does anyone know a model or method to examine the micro environment for a recruitment company?

The Micro Enviroment

Hello Michelle, I think that the PEST covers the micro environment information, but it must be feeded by the analyst, as you know, each sector of the economy works in a different way. It might be useful that you benchmark competitors of your core business to have information about the PEST trends in a specific sector. This may focus you in a better way, a benchmark way. Hope it helps, take care.
