Whisperings to (and from) a Recruiter – 11/25/09

  • Money for big solar projects, frozen since January 2009, has begun to slowly flow again since late summer.
  • Talented job-seekers going crazy from the silence of 2009 are starting to hear their phones ring with calls from recruiters who have heard of them through their networks, not job boards or applications.  There is an expectation that hiring will really open up in January 2010.  Recruiters are fattening their candidate pipes and trying to get interviews for January seats conducted by their clients now, if possible.
  • In addition to new seats opening in January 2010, there is a prediction that a game of musical chairs will also be underfoot.  Many employees have played it safe with their jobs this past year, or have taken available positions with too long a commute, or not their aspirational fit:  These folks will likely be on the move.
