Is the Job Market Turning?

A friend who follows the financial markets for a living asked me recently if the local job market for the people I work with is tightening up. I replied that I hadn’t seen any signs of it, and if the continued flow of job leads—and good ones at that—that comes through our job lead programs is any indication, it isn’t turning yet. But it did remind me that if you’re looking for work, you can be very emotionally sensitive to the ups and downs of the unemployment reports and job numbers. A suggestion? Try not to let it get to you: there’s macro and micro; there are jobs that are counted and then there’s the hidden job market. Hopefully, you’ll gain access to the latter through your contacts and through MPN. Right now, at least, there are opportunities out there for you. It’s just a matter of looking in the right places.
