The loss of 467,000 jobs in June...

"The loss of 467,000 jobs in June..." writes Don Lee of the Los Angeles Times, "...made it clear that the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression was far from over."

"This is the only recession since the Great Depression to wipe out all the jobs growth from the previous business cycle," institute economist Heidi Shierholz said.

Welcome to the current job market where jobs are taking on the characteristics of the melting polar icecaps. The protocol of creating a resume and distributing it in hopes that the right job offer will come forth is like serving martinis on the aft deck of the Titanic because it could always be counted on to kick off a delightful evening. Bon voyage!

Today--right now--a management-level executive had better understand how to create visibility and demand for his or her signature talents or all talk of career is likely to be retrospective in nature.

Strangely enough, the demand for highly skilled 'franchise players' is higher than it has ever been if one understands who is the public for your services and what is their need.
