CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists (EMSI) recently conducted a study tracking labor trends in the U.S. The study looked at which industries have seen the highest job increases post-recession, as well as the U.S. cities which have seen the biggest job growth in recent years.
Earlier in the year I wrote about the lost generation of middle managers in retail whom face limited progression opportunities as a result of the recession. Since that article the redundancies have continued to flow thick and fast with all sorts of rumours about which retailer is going to collapse next. One might think that with all the doom and gloom in the market that the opportunities to develop your career are few and far between. However…
If you are ambitious and do want…Continue

When you say it like that, it sounds almost like it might be fun. Perhaps a bit of an adrenaline ride at Alton Towers? Afraid not – albeit it may provide a bumpy ride for a few of us.
Well it’s official. As of 9:30 this morning we learned we have entered the joys of a double dip recession, and for us that means it’s time to work out how this will impact the world of flat fee online recruitment. Before we all get too excited, what’s it all about? Well, for those of you not…Continue

The game of “musical chairs” has begun as employees begin to jump ship for better employment opportunities. The aftermath of a recession is employee disengagement. Unfortunately, your key players won’t tell you they are dissatisfied until they are walking out the door. As well-performing companies start to cherry pick top talent, it begins a chain of employee turnover events that will affect many companies.
72% of employers restructured or laid off employees since the recession…Continue
This is not the blog you’re expecting. I’m not going to talk about the hordes of unqualified candidates I get bombarded with. I’m not going to discuss how hard it is to get a “passive” candidate to make a change out of fear of the unknown. I refuse to debate the merits of 3rd party recruiters and how some companies feel they don’t “need” TPRs because there are so many people out there dying to come to work for you.
No. This blog is about how this recession has…Continue
An interesting debate emerged recently when it was revealed that the UK actually has more jobless teenagers than Slovenia.
Straight away of course there were the usual "well what do you expect with all the foreigners coming over here" type comments and others blaming the generation before them for voting for this, that and the other, but it got me thinking (always a dangerous thing) - would it be silly to suggest that it's nothing to do with immigration, baby boomers, Generation X or…Continue

Unfortunately, just as the economy was showing signs of improving, a number of factors are causing it to weaken again. Rising food and oil prices, supply chain disruptions due to the Japanese nuclear disaster and a still-horrendous housing market are all to blame. How will it impact your business? Mostly by affecting consumers.
As oil prices have climbed more than 20% this year, high gas prices are slowing the momentum of the recent economic improvements. Gas and food inflation are…Continue
In February 2010, The New York Times reported that, for the first time in recorded history, women outnumbered men on the nation’s payrolls.
What does this mean for the American workforce?
Unfortunately, women’s ascendance in the workplace is partially related to the recent recession. More men work in industries hit harder by the recession, such as financial services, manufacturing and construction. Women tend to predominate in industries such as education and…Continue
A recent practice we have reported on where employers specifically state in job postings that they will not accept unemployed candidates has ignited a bit of a firestorm and has some crying "discrimination." Some lawmakers are even moving to make banning unemployed job candidates…Continue
Does this title resonate with you? If so, it’s probably because you’re either looking for a job or recently spoke to a candidate that is really frustrated by how long they’ve been looking. In either case, it makes complete sense for someone who has been out of work for a while to be feeling frustrated, angry, hopeless or depressed.
Let’s start with a candidate scenario. While trying to find the perfect candidate, you come across a beautiful resume. You get the person on…Continue

The National Bureau of Economic Research reported this week what we’ve all heard – that the recession which began in December 2007 “officially” ended in June, 2009. The 18 month duration made this the longest downturn since the “Great” Depression. Are you having fun yet? The economy is expected to continue to grow, although many economists are predicting only 1% growth next year. In June, 2009, if you…Continue

I wrote this after midnight in one take and hope it makes sense:).
It’s been a while since I’ve written or posted anything to Recruitingblogs or even my own blog or community. To be honest, the reason is I wasn’t sure if I was going into or out of business with my new company, ExecuSource. I had to table part of my business plan and
put all of my efforts into developing my new business. That is, when I wasn’t…
