  • Happy Holidays from Gillian Executive Search

    Happy Holidays

    It’s another end of the year message. Though I do feel that the end of this year is different from the end of ’15,’14,’13. Those years were hard recovery years. Yes business slowly came back from the recession but it wasn’t “fun”. It seemed everyone was scared of their own shadows and worrying every day that the roof would cave in again. Each year was painfully the same as the one before it and people just seemed, well, depressed. 2017 just has a ring to it and we’re already seeing a different mentality as we finish out the year. We are being hit with all sorts of new assignments from clients (both old and new) as their business plans project strong future growth kicking off in  2017. Businesses are bullish and it seems like candidates are finally venturing out as well.

     

    Candidates/talent, I know it’s been scary thinking about changing jobs in the last couple of years. Most of the opportunities where more project oriented than career oriented but that seems to have changed as well. Businesses coming out of the recession had a lot of “moth-balled” projects that needed to be dusted off and executed but there wasn’t much of a pipeline behind that which would support long term career growth and candidates could sense that. It felt too risky to jump from a secured job into one that might only last 18-20months. Now our clients (businesses) have long term growth plans, there is a future that appears longer and brighter than before and the types of positions we have support that.

     

    We are very excited about 2017 and we hope you are as well. So from the team here at Gillian Executive Search and Gillian Sports Recruiting  MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
