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!

I’ve heard it…

What Do You Believe?


When we lose meaning, we lose power.  Our values, our culture, even our language have been under attack for years.  This is not a difference of opinion.  It is an attack.  We have compromised until we can barely function.  Perhaps we could revisit the principles that sustained us for hundreds, even thousands of years?  We’ve…

Quote Of The Week 11/17/22


It’s confusing that Halloween and Election Day are so close to each other. In both cases, people put on a mask and ask for things.  Best I can tell, Halloween is actually getting shorter. Election Day takes a month.
