About - Recruiter’s View

Sooner or later, everything in real life influences the jobs markets. So, our topics here range all over the place.

In our search to discover and share what’s really going on, we are particularly trying to answer the questions:

  • Where will jobs be created (and why?)
  • Where will jobs be destroyed (and why?)

This is my commentary on what I see and what I think it means.

People sometimes ask my opinion, because they assume a Recruiter’s activity can be a useful indicator.

And in fact, it’s true that I can pick up on changes in the business environment months ahead of the published numbers.

Understanding the implications of those changes is the trick. Daily conversations with business leaders give me the equivalent of perpetual survey results. And talking to candidates is the perfect reality check.

Ultimately, then, my evaluation is largely formed as an extension of what many, many others have been kind enough to share with me.

So, when you think I’ve got it wrong, I encourage you to tell me what you see from your side of the mountain.

We’re all trying to figure this out together.

Thanks for being a part of our effort!

This is one of their stories.  …

My Biggest Pitch Ever

That was strange. I just recommended 4,000 people for employment. This morning, I did just the bare minimum to keep a promise I made last week. I sent an e-mail to the media. Well, I sent it to one guy. It was kind of scary, actually. It took me three days to hit the send…

Where To Start

After nine months of blogging on the other site, the gestation period is complete.  A blog is born. So what do I do with all the old stuff?  (I’m not carrying that metaphor any further, and you shouldn’t either.)

Welcome To Me!

Sometimes it’s hard to tell exactly where the starting points are. A year ago, I had just gotten my wonderful new computer; and I had found the On Switch.  Then I remember sitting in a hotel room, calling tech support, trying to salvage my e-mail. On January 21 of this year, I posted my very…
