Job Market Intel

Poor Economy Sparks Record Interest In Entrepreneurship
By Beth Fitzgerald
Nancy Jordan, of Plainfield, went to a workshop in New Brunswick Wednesday night seeking advice on how to launch a small business that she hopes will help replenish her retirement savings. In the wake of the market slump, “everyone needs a plan B,” she said. Jordan was among more than 20 who attended an introductory session of the Entrepreneurial Training Initiative, a course taught by Union-based nonprofit UCEDC. Those who enroll in ETI will learn to write a business plan, be taught the basics of running a small business and get advice on how to line up financing. The turnout was about twice the number who attended ETI workshops in good times, but the economic slump sparked a surge in interest in new business startups, said Alexander Marin, of UCEDC, who led the workshop. The loss of a job motivates many would-be entrepreneurs, Marin said. “They tell us, ‘I lost my job, and I’ve always had a business idea on the back burner, and now is the time to go forward.’” Others are starting businesses to supplement the lost earnings of an unemployed spouse, “and a lot of small businesses are just faltering — there are small businesses right now where the water is up to their ears, and it’s either sink or swim.” Kim Outlaw, a tax preparer who owns Morrison Agency, in Elizabeth, said he’s considering taking the course to gain some marketing skills. Meanwhile, Carlton Kornegay, of New Brunswick, an architectural draftsman who has helped investors acquire commercial real estate, said he wants to own his own apartment building for a change. “I’m trying to get any information that will help,” he said. “The biggest trouble is financial — finding the money to support what you want to do.” E-mail Beth Fitzgerald at bfitzgerald@njbiz.com

JMC Job Search Tips

(Simple Things pt 107…)

ESPN, CNN, Bloomberg, etc… have all contributed to our attention spans becoming shorter and shorter. There’s not much any of us can do about that fact so as the old saying goes, “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.” It’s very necessary therefore to keep your message and your stories succinct i.e. direct and to the point. The temptation when talking about ourselves is often to believe that the more information we can cram into our turn to speak the better. Perhaps the best rule of thumb is to put yourself on the receiving end of the info. Even better – record yourself and objectively ask when listening to the playback if you really maintained your own interest. As another old saw goes, “there are truly times when less is more”. Keep refining your message and your stories to communicate as much with as few words as possible and you’ll likely find yourself memorable for that trait – and that’s a much sought after trait in this time-starved world…

Just Thinking…
He who has health has hope; and he who has hope, has everything.
