Job Market Competition

April 27, 2010

 

Indeed.com provides a chart with the ratio of job postings to number of unemployed for 50 metropolitan areas.  While I am not sure how accurate the data is (job postings for staffing agencies, etc), the chart does give a good idea of what competition looks like.

Below are the top 10 for April 2010.  (Click here for the entire list)

Are you in a heavily competitive area?  What are you doing to differentiate yourself?

Revising your resume and sending out mass applications won’t get you what you want.  Getting the job you want, especially in a down economy is almost an art form.

We understand that art form and have the tools to help.  Instead of just submitting a generic resume, we can work with you to create a profile that will make a potential employer put you on the top of the list.  Until May 15th, we are offering an incredible deal on our services- there is no time like the present to do it right!
