Barclays Predicts Strong Economic Recovery
2009 Money Management Executive and SourceMedia, Inc
By Donna Mitchell, On Wall Street During the second and third quarters, American households should recover as much as $6 trillion of the $14 trillion in wealth that they lost since the onset of the financial downturn last year, Barclays Capital analysts said. Even so, consumers probably won’t be ready to start spending freely again any time soon, Barclays said. Ongoing economic policies and strong cyclical growth will drive a stronger economic recovery than the markets expect, especially in the United States. “We have a lot of policy left to go,” said Larry Kantor, head of research at Barclays Capital. He expects that about half of the federal stimulus money devoted to infrastructure will be spent in 2010. “Economic data will be better than expected, particularly in the U.S.,” Kantor said. “The recovery is not fragile. It has a lot more to run.” Barclays recommends that investors favor equities over corporate credit, with a focus on cyclical sectors such as industrials and technology. Current profit margins in the industrial sector suggest that they are likely to hit bottom at nearly 120 basis points above the lows of the prior business cycle. Also, margins will bottom out sooner than they typically have at this point in the economic cycle, owing to substantial inventory liquidation. In the technology sector, several semiconductor companies have increased their quarterly guidance in the middle of their quarters. Furthermore, analyst opinion continues to improve about the sector. In addition, electronics was one of the strongest categories in August retail sales reports. Aided by stronger industrial output and a more robust technology sector, Barclays expects U.S. GDP growth to reach almost 5% for the next six months, with 4.5% of that growth occurring in the second half of 2009. That will precipitate a strong recovery and stronger employment numbers. Kantor pointed out that even though the general market believes that unemployment will increase to 10% and stay there for a while, Barclays Capital projects unemployment to fall to 9.1% and 8.8% by the third and fourth quarters of 2010, respectively.

Government Hiring To Surge As Fed Agencies Try To Fill Mission Critical Roles
A recent survey by the Partnership For Public Service, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization aiming to revitalize the federal government workforce, reveals that federal agencies must fill 273,000 mission critical jobs in the next three years. Its review of critical hiring needs is based on a survey of 35 federal agencies representing nearly 99 percent of the 1.9 million-member federal workforce. The report finds that nearly one-third of the federal workforce is expected to retire or resign in the next five years, translating to tens of thousands of jobs across government, including about 17,300 in administration and program management alone. In addition, there will be need to hire roughly 5,700 human resource professionals at 14 federal agencies that have identified human resources as a mission-critical function.

JMC Job Search Tips
(Simple Things pt 105…)
The Thank You Note: email vs. snail mail…
This question pops up pretty regularly whenever people are discussing job search strategy which is a good thing because there are still too many who seem to undervalue the impact of a well written follow-up letter. That being said, this doesn’t need to be an either-or proposition. Do both. Send an email message the next business day while the iron is still hot and compose your hardcopy document to be placed in the mail at the same time. This keeps your information fresh but it also
ensures another “touch” for you in the process to keep your name in the mix…
Decide on what you think is right, and stick to it. -- George Eliot - English Novelist
