I think the unemployment rate will be around 9 all year. I think if you have been out of a job for 6 months or less you have a great chance of getting back. If you have been out for over 1 year try to get back in the game. Things are changing and they are changing quickly! We need everyone to get back to work!!
Since late 2009 until here is what we are seeing…
Folks are either very busy or remaining slow. Not seeing too many in the middle. All I can say is keep on keeping on if you still believe in the business…success is right around the corner. Go find the business and service it like you never have before. I think the recruiting world has come full circle; you need technology, you need databases and tools, but you need the TELEPHONE TO IDENTIFY, RECRUIT, NETWORK AND DECIDE WHO IS YOUR NEXT BEST HIRE!
My predictions…drum roll please…
Growth by segments again my opinion!
Telephone Research/name generation/candidate identification – 10-15 %There is the need to go after the passive candidates and network! Everyone has the active one!
Recruiting/candidate sourcing- 15-20% Corporations are smarter have a lot of smart and superb in-house recruiting leaders who know the drill. Many worked in our field and are now on the corporate sides. Helps us and corporations.
Customized Competitive Intelligence -20% growth possibly more. You need to know now what the competitors are doing!!!! From talent to bench strength to new products roll outs, manufacturing capabilities to anything that keeps you ahead of the game. YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON INSIDE YOUR ORGANIZATION AND AT THE COMPETITORS!!
SGA EXECUTIVETRACKER….having lots of fun!!! Everyone needs a telephone verified database where there are granular titles, bios, emails and direct dials.
My prediction is that overall those who made it through 2009 will grow by at least 10%. But it remains important to partner, listen, consult, and give more than what was asked for. Good luck to all in our industries!!!
