Financial Job Outlook
Everyone I talk with, clients and candidates, are interested to find out the status of the job market. Why not, listening to the news there is no shortage of layoffs. The media and companies have given up the euphemisms such as “right sizing” or “downsizing” and settled on the plain language of “lay offs”. Those in accounting and finance are faring better than most I talk with in other disciplines. Without a doubt it is slower today than even six months ago, the days of landing two job offers in two weeks are gone. Still there exists a fair demand for talented accounting and finance professionals.
