Despite small/medium/large scale companies creating unemployment out of necessary business health decisions, they, ironically, have a buyers market when hiring cycles occur due to the large amount of human resource capital that is available, with many over qualified candidates competing for otherwise incompatible job roles, normally filled by others who now have to compete at subsequently lower level/quality roles in this domino effect. The key is to maintain and elevate your candidacy to suitable or enhanced job roles even in challenging economic environments.
Some current and long standing employment market factors that will seriously affect the competitive nature and calibre requirements of candidates include:
Large scale corporate layoffs, downsizing, shrinking economy displacing all levels of employees
Non-renewable, outsourced manufacturing/distribution/back office jobs and industry wide sector job losses
Increased competition for available job roles against higher calibre employment pool of candidates
Less opportunity for education upgrades due to income necessity, costs, and lost opportunity costs being out of market
Contrasting need to offset higher cost of living across the board with higher or diverse income, despite economic reality
Fewer 'mortgage qualifying' jobs with benefits being created that are desired well paying, family supporting salaried roles
More service and retail level 'minimum wage' roles often touted as job expansion success by industry/government
Rising cost of living index for goods and services placing downward pressure on middle class to lower class sustainability
The above global realities simply underscore the importance of gaining every competitive advantage to ensure your candidacy, strategic approach, and strategy towards target employers, now and into the future, is as optimal as possible.
If you, or someone you know, are currently receiving, or potentially plan to register for unemployment benefits, part of the requirement to sustain your extended benefits is to show active pursuit of employment into the workforce including educational/training towards successful job placement. This program effectively supports both your strategic and targeted approach to company decision makers as well as your unemployment benefit requirement for enhanced skills and training.
