More People Leaving Jobs Willingly
The job market is picking up and more people are finding new jobs. In fact, In September 2011 more people willingly changed positions. “Total quits rose in September 2011” -highest number since 2008 (New York Times 11/9/2011). This is a good indication that potential job candidates and employees feel confident they will find new positions or a better one.
And job openings in September 2011 were at the highest level since August 2008 – up 22% from the same time last year.
As we approach the end of 2011 many people stop looking for new positions. However we believe this is one of the best times of year to network. Many companies begin planning for 2012 and anticipate openings. Interview, schedule informational meetings and update resumes as 2012 should be a good year for hiring.
