The War for Talent Continues

July 2016 -

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Recently I have seen several articles about the continuing demand for top talent. The reason for this now is that this is the most opportune time for experienced professionals to consider a move and for firms to hire i.e., between year end and the spring/fall tax season. I have excerpted below some of the more salient points from the articles.
I would encourage both sides of the hiring equation to take due time in getting to know each other because of the many pitfalls of a bad hire by a firm and a bad move by a candidate. I am a firm believer in extra meetings and extra due diligence such as writing samples and mini business or marketing plans. If in doubt, simply do not make the hire or the career move.
Each of the items below require a concentrated effort, strategy and action steps by the firm or the candidate. Otherwise they are just this.... words on a page. I know time is precious but try not to fall prey to saying to yourself "I know, I know" but not really executing.
