Why Were Optimistic About Your Job Search

Why Were Optimistic About Your Job SearchWhy Were Optimistic About Your Job SearchWeve had our biggest month ever here at Ladders, with more employers posting more jobs and searching for more people than ever before in our ten-year historyNow thats mostly because the economy has stopped getting much worse - not that its getting a lot better - but as long as it doesnt get worse, theres a lot of hiring going on.Ill tell you more about it after you have a chance to look at these one hundred companies hiring right now, today, on LaddersAmazonCitiOffice DepotBloombergLivingSocialIBMChobaniPayPalStarbucks Coffee CompanyOracleKraft FoodsAmerican ExpressMicrosoftAetnaDeloitteThe Home DepotGannettTime Warner CableVerizonKellogg CompanyPwCBAE SystemsFresenius Medical CareCSCRGPChryslerDignity HealthMetlifeBaxterGentiva Health Services, Inc.IntelNovo NordiskCognizant SystemCelgene CorporationCoventry Health CareKPMGHPLife TechnologiesCrowe HorwathNuanceACI Adjustment GroupAvanadeUnisysHeartla nd Payment SystemsEmeritus Senior LivingComcastAmerigroupAdvantage Sales and Marketing LLCPacific Dental ServicesCVS CaremarkQuintilesIngram MicroNTT DATA, Inc.McGraw Hill FinancialArrow ElectronicsRICOHInsured Life of GeorgiaPitney BowesCignaMMCTraeger Pellet GrillsStaffPointe Medical SearchLevel 3 CommunicationsAon HewittNewTown SolutionsThe Compliance Search GroupDepartment Of Veterans AffairsInovalon, Inc.Bank of AmericaVisiting Nurse Service of New YorkRobert Half TechnologyAccentureUSAAMortgage Lender Enterprise ProductsCapital OneTravelersADPInsperityAlliedBartonHCA HealthcareEcho DailyQuest DiagnosticsGallupUPSEquifax Inc.OfficeMaxJohnson Controls, IncAshley EllisUlineActuate CorporationFrontier CommunicationsPNCIngersoll RandTechprosBlue Shield of CaliforniaAndexColonial LifeXylem IncYou might ask how can that be? With the economy still not feeling great, how can it be that so many companies are hiring so many people?Well, its two things, Readers.First off, you have to re member that most hiring is replacement hiring. Its not companies saying that theyre going to grow their workforce by leaps and bounds, rather, its companies replacing routine attrition that occurs as employees flow in and out of any organization.Think of it this way. Even though the level in your bank account probably doesnt change too much in a particular year, and you may be more or less happy with where it is, a lot of new dollars come into your account each year from your current job. And then those dollars go out as expenses. So the vast majority of activity in your bank account is the addition of dollars to replace the ones youve already spent, even if the overall level stays about the same.Same thing in the employment market.We may be more or less happy with the overall rate of employment or unemployment, but the changeover from new employees coming in and old employees going out is far, far more important to your job search than the overall level.Therefore most hiring is rep lacement hiring. Which means that most companies are hiring all the time.Second, some companies are always expanding. There are always sectors of the economy that are growing while others shrink. As an example, if your company has anything to do with Apple Inc. right now, youre growing.And thats whether or not your company has anything to do whatsoever with technology. If you sell cardboard boxes to Apple, youre growing. If you sell real estate maintenance to Apple, youre growing. If you sell the little plastic biodegradable forks that the geniuses who design iPads use to eat their arugula salads at their gorgeous headquarters guess what?youre growing.So part of the job search is figuring out wheres the growth and wheres the shrink, and allocating your time accordingly.With that, Ill wish you the best of luck in your search this week, Readers
