Slow--but steady?

Are we having fun yet?

Three years of pretty much misery. But hey…maybe everyone will get so sick of this something will happen.

I know—magical thinking.

Anyhow, Anita Bruzzese, Gannett, says one expert says to just accept the market will stop, start, fits and starts.

Unemployment may stay high. Slow development—an idea, financing, some hiring, support hiring, distribution hiring, etc may build a foundation. Just having the govt pay salaries for a year or two to a construction company won’t rebuild this.

Passive candidates—those with jobs and recruited—will still be popular. But some people won’t want to change—this is why you need to network—so that person can recommend YOU!

Also see if there are certifications you can get—sort of mini-degrees.

Keep plugging. Not glamorous…but what else can you do?
