Talent is talent

Friday, September 17th, 2010

I came to this business after spending years as a human resources practitioner.  Talent is hard to find in any job market and matching that talent so that it’s the right person, for the right job, at the right price and time is difficult in every economic climate.  Excluding someone because they happen to be between jobs is not good business.  While we cannot change the world, we believe we do our part, one job and one candidate at a time.  ~BG

Getting back to “normal”?

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

Employers are hiring, but there is a lot less “slack” in the candidate pool for certain areas of employment.  However, there are a lot of misconceptions out there.  Companies are often under the impression that there are more candidates whose backgrounds fit their needs than there really are and candidates are a bit more fearful about changing positions than they used to be.  We are seeing openings that would have been filled more quickly in less uncertain times stay open longer – usually because the Company is waiting for the “ideal” candidate.  It’s going to take a bit more time, but little by little we are sensing a return to “normalcy” whatever that is.
