Recruiter Writes About Atlanta Jobs

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

A recruiter is achieving success by waxing poetic about Atlanta jobs.

“Headhunter” Hiring Secrets: The Rules of the Hiring Game Have Changed . . . Forever!, by professional “headhunter” and author Skip Freeman, has just achieved “best seller” status in the job hunting books category on Amazon.com, the World’s largest book retailer, boasting 8 million titles.

“Headhunter” Hiring Secrets has been as high as number two in the job hunting books category and has consistently remained in the Top Five. Fewer than one-half of one percent of books featured and sold on Amazon.com ever achieve this status.

The job hunting book was published in late January 2010 and has remained in the top 10% of book sales on Amazon ever since then.

“We are extremely pleased with the reception our book has received,” said Freeman. “We believed from the start that we had something of significant value to offer job seekers in this, the worst job market since the Great Depression. And I am glad to learn that job seekers apparently feel the same way.”

Freeman added that the idea for writing and publishing the book came about because he realized how few job seekers he could actually help, personally, through his Atlanta, GA, executive recruiting firm, Hire to Win.

“I, like virtually every other recruiter, work in a very defined market niche,” he said. “My niche happens to be the engineering and chemical industries, primarily. Any job seeker outside my niche I simply cannot help find a new job. But, with the publication of ‘Headhunter’ Hiring Secrets, I have thus far been able to help thousands, and hope I can end up helping millions, by sharing my experience and expertise about the state of the current job market and how to effectively compete in it.”

MFG on Manufacturing Jobs in Atlanta

Monday, December 6th, 2010

MFGWatch has a new report on manufacturing jobs in Atlanta and around the nation.

MFG.com, the largest global sourcing marketplace for the manufacturing industry today announced the results of their latest two-part MFGWatch survey. For the fifth straight quarter, more than one-third of North American manufacturers responding to the quarterly survey said that they’ve experienced a significant supply chain disruption in the past three months – one that has forced the engagement of an alternative source – although the number of respondents indicating they’ve experienced disruptions dropped to 40% from 51% in the previous quarter.

Other findings include:

* North American Buyers in Q3 ’10 have shown some improved employment activity. 26% of large manufacturers state that they have increased employment; much more than the 18% that in the previous quarter had indicated they would add employees. Conversely, while the 21% that had indicated they had reduced staffs is down slightly from the previous quarter, it is still much higher than those that anticipated any retraction (8%).

* For the first time since Q3 ’09, there are fewer Large Manufacturers in North America that have experienced a significant supply chain disruption than from the previous quarter. The 40% that stated they’d experienced those disruptions represents a significant drop from the previous quarter (51%); however, 40% still represents a significant level of risk and pressure on spend and supply chain management resources across industries.
