April showers bring May flowers. The trees and bushes in Chatham Village are budding and bringing forth an explosion of flowers. Residents and visitors are delighted with the rainbow of colors. It’s a happy and heartening time.
If one looks carefully, it’s also a heartening time for job seekers. The national and state unemployment figures are beginning to turn around. The embryonic economic recovery is beginning to finally grow private sector jobs as the government stimulus winds down.
This is the time for those who have been downsized, who are frustrated in their present jobs, who want to change careers or create consulting practices of their own to take action. You need to get out ahead of the curve.
Employers are beginning to loosen their purse strings and posting openings, contacting recruiters, and contacting yours truly.
Time is of the essence. “The early bird gets the worm.” The proverb may be tired (I prefer seasonally appropriate), but it conveys an obvious truth. Don’t wait. Get moving. Now.
I have ongoing relationships with various recruiters and staffing agencies in the area. Some are generalists, some occupy certain niches, such as sales or IT. Contact me and let me see if I can connect you.
