Publisher's Letter: Get Ready for a Hiring Surge
by Bill Basnett, Publisher
Despite the gloom and doom reported on the nightly news about the continuing recession, the business media has been reporting positive news on hiring in the last half of 2010. CEOs are optimistic about increasing their payrolls in the last two quarters of 2010 and in 2011. As companies look to bring on new employees, you need to be ready to take advantage of the new job opportunities.
Target the right companies. In May, Civilian Job News published the 2010 list of Most Valuable Employers for Military. These military-friendly employers are chosen for their 2010 recruiting and retention plans targeting veterans. If you missed this issue, check out the CJN archive.
As the job market improves over the next few months, make sure you are ready to make the transition from the military to corporate America. Planning ahead and being prepared will ensure your success when the right opportunity is available.
We want to hear from you. Please tell us about the issues and challenges you are facing in your transition or send us your success stories. We can be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions, comments, concerns, and story ideas. Civilian Job News will successfully meet its mission if you are all involved with us.
