Bernanke Weighs In, CEOs Too

Growing Optimism on the Hiring Front

The Los Angeles Times reported today that:

The Fed chief also gave a somewhat more positive assessment of the employment situation, after last Friday’s report showing the nation’s unemployment rate falling to 9% last month from 9.4% in December and 9.8% in November.

He said: “Notable declines in the unemployment rate in December and January, together with improvement in indicators of job openings and firms’ hiring plans, do provide some grounds for optimism on the employment front [1].

In spite of this week’s conflicting short term data, we should be celebrating that the U.S. unemployment rate dropped unexpectedly to a low unseen since April 2009: 9%. Better yet, numerous surveys and CEO reports are optimistic: the outlook for 2011 is to refocus on innovation, competition, and hiring [2].

Redfish Technology reports surging demand in Software as a Service and Cloud Computing as well as Solar and Clean Tech companies, “From VP of Sales in high tech positions to PV Project Engineers, the talent is out there but it usually requires pulling out a lot of stops to locate the right person with the right skills and the right fit” reports Rob Reeves, CEO. “We had a great 2010 and are confident that 2011 will be even better.”
