Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 11, 2008
With fast rising unemployment rates in Georgia and across the country, many professionals are looking for new ideas on how to be proactive and leverage technology in the job search process. Responding to accounting jobs ads and waiting for the phone to ring is simply not proactive enough in a deepening recession. This article provides a starting point for thinking outside the box with your job search.
“I have sent out hundreds of resumes and the phone isn’t ringing! “This is common feedback we are hearing right now from marketable candidates,” says Nate Rozell, owner of SearchLogic Recruiting, an Atlanta based staffing and search firm with two specialized job placement focuses (Accounting and Administrative). Rozell says this kind of candidate frustration is common place in a down-market. “We saw this last back at the end of 2001 and 2002. From all the available data and our own observations it appears the job cuts will be deeper and the unemployment rate will be higher this time but it isn’t permanent and things could be a lot worse. Job seekers looking for work in the Greater Atlanta area have the advantage of sheer volume of companies including the number of corporate headquarters and diversity of industries. We are not a one pony town like a Detroit.”
When asked about helpful ideas on how to leverage technology with the job search process, Rozell had the following tips to share.
