Amount of funding
Pedigree of the management team

So not to be one to dwell on the so called "down turn" but staff are obviously getting slightly fed up with the doom and gloom, jobs are not as thick and fast as normal which has a knock on effect with team morale.
Any suggestions on keeping spirits up!!!

Do you remember the Atari game, Pitfall? Great game. The main character, Pitfall Harry, was constantly having to grab jungle vines, cling and swing for dear life to avoid quicksand, crocodiles, and tar pits.
As anyone who does much of their work from home can attest, telecommuting can have plenty of it's own pitfalls. From family interruptions to poor time management, the modern remote worker has to be wary of the quicksand and tar pits at their… Continue

It’s difficult to put your best foot forward when your China hiring report is released as major financial institutions have just gone into a major meltdown.
Such is life.
Of course, the Hudson Report for July to September 2008 is as deep and accurate as you would normally expect from them. We just have to adjust many of the results downwards.
The trends should be much the same as in the report but the optimism is much less warranted. 2009 looks like a bit of a… Continue

The calls and emails have been coming in; the voices imperceptively waiver: The recruiters are nervous. Corporate leaders and naifs are looking out their windows, some even waiting for the call to come. Third party firms are wondering where the callbacks are. Who is Satan and who is the Saviour?
Satan is real and you are the Saviour but you don't know this yet. Satan wants you to be afraid; he wants to cull the herd. Don't let him scare you.

We face extreme danger. Unless there is immediate intervention on every front by all the major powers acting in concert, we risk a disintegration of global finance within days. Nobody will be spared, unless they own gold bars.

You've seen the headlines -- thousands of jobs vaporized at corporate behemoths Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch. Some of the world's biggest businesses face big problems in the coming months.
That's why, if you're looking for work, you should take a long look at small businesses.
Small firms employ about 50% of all private-sector workers in America and, since the mid-1990s, have generated 60 to 80 percent of net new jobs each year, according to the U.S. Small Business… Continue

Many of my close friends as well as my sister recently took voluntary separation packages from the large newspaper company for whom I toiled for 14 years.
I was long gone, but I still kept tabs on the shocking demise of my former industry, so the announcement of a buyout offer for anyone employed in the newsroom for at least five years didn’t take me by surprise.
What did surprise me was how many people had the guts to take the deal--seventy-five--and how many of them,… Continue

If you’re looking for a job and haven’t found one yet, by definition, you have a problem.
There’s something standing between you and employment.
What is it?
Surprisingly, when I ask most job hunters what their #1 job-search problem is, they answer, “I don’t know.”
Think about that. How can you solve a problem if you don’t know what it is?
So, the first step is to define your biggest job-search problem. Only then can you solve it effectively.… Continue

All across America this time of year, college campuses are filling with new and returning students all looking for that magic piece of paper that will ensure their futures. All that effort and all those tuition fees.... You'd better make sure it's worth it.

It is becoming more and more common to see people over the age of 50 changing careers. In decades past, many people stayed in the same career, and sometimes even the same job, for virtually all of their working lives.
However, times have changed and it is becoming very common for people to change careers a number of times during their lifetimes. A number of factors are contributing to the increased numbers of people in the 50 and over population who are seeking to change… Continue

Today's employers hire Subject Matter Experts to solve problems. Managers and executives might not like this, but the day of the Generalist is over.
Now that it's easy to completely customize and individualize a resume to demonstrate Subject Matter Expertise, why would a hiring manager give a second glance at a general resume that didn't exactly match requirements?
Leadership and management skills are no longer searched for skills. Sure, they are still valued, but these… Continue
