Summer is traditionally a slow time for employer hiring. Decision-makers, along with their staff, are typically taking vacations and hiring decisions are pushed back into fall. However, with the recession upon us, unemployment is up sharply and the Pittsburgh metropolitan marketplace is particularly slow.
However, summer can be a great time to prepare yourself and your search for fall. In fact, it’s imperative that you make the best use of this time because the recession is not going away; many economic experts predict it will deepen and its impacts will spread far beyond the sectors currently most affected. You may have a job now; you might not have one by year’s end.
