It Should Be Easy
November 28, 2011
Yesterday in the Wall Street Journal there was an article about “why companies aren’t getting the employees they need” written by Peter Cappelli. It summarized for me the reason we struggle with many of our job placements. Even with unemployment so high, companies are grousing that they can’t find skilled workers, and that filling a job can take months of hunting.
There are a variety of reasons why this phenomenon is occurring, but this article added a new reason to the list…..the employers themselves!

Older Workers Face Tougher Market
Yesterday I read an article on The Ladders website written by Debra Donston-Miller. The article was discussing the difficulties of the older applicant in the job search market. According to Donston-Miller, “Job seekers in their 50s may be stereotyped as counting the days to retirement or running up health-insurance costs.” I personally took offense to this comment (being a true boomer!), but in checking with our team, they all agreed with the writer.
