Don’t Drink the Kool-Aid! – Bill Kasko – Frontline Source Group, Inc.
Hi, this is Bill Kasko , President and CEO of Frontline Source Group, Inc. We are a temporary staffing and direct hire employment placement agency based in Dallas with office throughout Texas .
I remember the recession of 1980 like it was yesterday. I was just 15 years old and my family lived right outside of Detroit . My father, a lawyer, who worked his way through college and my mother who raised four children, said it was time to pick up and move south. Our family relocated to a town 25 miles north of Dallas . At the time, this small but growing town had one high school and many dirt roads with numerous farms and cattle roaming the fields. I recall the day our parents announced that we would be moving to Plano , Texas and how odd I found the name to be. The recession came and went and this small north Texas town of open fields grew into a hub of job growth and opportunity for some of the largest corporations in America .
My point is that this too will pass! Today they announced the unemployment rate went to 7.6% on a national level. I decided what they announced is that the employment rate is 92.4%….sounds much better. When will this end? Who knows so stop pointing fingers or waiting for someone else to fix the mess and start working on your next career opportunity. Every person out there looking for a job opportunity needs to get creative. Networking and the internet are two very easy and quick ways to get noticed. A recent study by Careerbuilder.com showed that only 1 in 4 job seekers go to staffing agencies for their next job opportunity. Hello…that is only 25% of the people looking which translates into you having a huge advantage if you get your resume to employment agencies. Have you done that yet? Have you submitted your resume or applied to jobs posted by agencies? Is your resume in the database for Jobing.com, Careerbuilder.com or Monster.com? Are you networking on sites like Facebook, MySpace or Jobertalk.com? If not, what are you waiting for?
On one of the cable talk shows recently someone said that this is a crazy time in the history of our country. To me that would mean that the same old things that have worked in the past will not work this time. Press forward and get creative in your attempts to get your resume in front of HR, hiring managers or staffing agencies. Remember to stay positive, professional and always be looking for opportunities…they are out there!
