Very brief items

  • A bulletin I read from McKinsey today shows that business executives worldwide are optimistic that their workforces will expand over the next six months, but less optimistic than they were in June. They’re most optimistic in
    India.

 

  • Got an email from Christina Monteiro who says she has quite a few candidates from the Liz Claiborne cuts. They are VPs, GMs, merchandise managers, product-development managers, district managers, and others.

 

  • HireAbility is looking to partner with Akken, Bullhorn, or a similar recruiting technology company, so that recruiters can more easily become a part of HireAbility’s network.

 

  • Nancy Phillips, VP of sales and marketing at the recruiter-training company Good as Gold, says “the biggest problem in our industry is retaining recruiters ? medical, IT, it doesn’t matter what discipline ? we’re having trouble finding talent, and I’ve heard it over and over and over again.”
