Job Market Intel
From Execunet: Recruiters See Signs of Improvement in
Employment Market

Despite mixed economic reports, recruiters anticipate the demand for executive talent will increase during the next two quarters, according to the results of ExecuNet's Recruiter Confidence Index (RCI) released today. "There's a consensus among the nation's top recruiters that the worst is over for the executive employment market," says Mark Anderson, president and chief economist of ExecuNet. "We're already seeing an uptick in hiring, as companies look to improve their management teams with a quality of talent that wasn't readily available in recent years."

According to September's survey of 165 executive recruiters, 56 percent are confident or very confident the
executive employment market will improve during the next six months \u2014 up from 49 percent last month.
This also marks the RCI's second highest reading during the past 13 months. Recruiters' short-term
confidence reached a 12-month high in September, as 27 percent are confident or very confident the
executive employment market will improve during the next three months \u2014 up from 24 percent in August.
An equal number (27 percent) of recruiters are not confident the job market will improve during the next
three months \u2014 down from 34 percent last month and the lowest reading since August 2008.

During the fourth quarter, 65 percent of all executive search consultants are expecting at least a 10 percent
increase in search assignments received from corporate clients.

"Any increase in six-figure job growth is good news for executives, but clearly, finding these opportunities will be more challenging than it was before the recession," added Anderson. "Companies are less likely to advertise openings in this environment given the sheer volume of talent in the market and their focus on improving existing leadership teams. This means infiltrating the hidden job market will be more important than ever before."

Introduced in May 2003, the Recruiter Confidence Index is based on a monthly survey of executive search firms conducted by ExecuNet, a private network for business leaders. A leading indicator for the economy and the executive job market, a reading above 50 percent indicates recruiters expect the number of search assignments in the next six months will increase.

JMC Job Search Tips(Simple Things pt 106\u2026)
Careful on the Web\u2026

It\u2019s pretty amazing how quickly we can forget the very simple lessons about information on the
Internet. With the advent of all the social networking sites and the proliferation of new users who are
primarily baby boomers, there seems to be a lapse of memory and a basic lack thought being given
to the ability of those who are looking to find information about us on these very public and generally
unsecured forums. There are new applications that will not only search your name references but
will also look for your blog posts, product reviews, and yes even your micro-blogging efforts. So what
seemed like a harmless fun or joking conversation could come back to haunt your job search in a
very profound way. So remember the old adage about \u201canything that you wouldn\u2019t want your Mother
to know\u201d when accessing your favorite web sites\u2026

Just Thinking\u2026
I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps
a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.
-- J.B. Priestly
