It’s amazing how things change as we grow older.  As a young one the Holiday Season was filled with nothing but utter fascination and joy.  Now, as an adult I see how a certain holiday can lead to a business owner to rejoice or cringe.  One experiencing a bit of joy this year is the retail segment.  Retailers are seeing an increase in business over past months, with shoppers lining up to score the latest in technological wonders and elsewhere parents hunt down the last of this year’s hot, must have toy.

We in the recruiting business aren’t always filled with merriment when it comes to business objectives around year’s end.  The staffing industry usually prepares for the annual lull in business around the Christmas and New Year with candidates directing their focus everywhere but their job search- .  We also see employer client’s putting their attention toward company parties, annual reviews and the year end wrap up.  This year has been different though, candidates are still coming in and willing to go out for interviews – even between Christmas and the New Year.  We also have had a rather large uptick in employer clients calling with new search assignments.  We look forward to getting candidates out and started with some of our new employer clients by year’s end!

If you are looking to start the new year with a new career, contact one of our staffing professionals today.  You can reach one of our Account Executives at 425-672-4200 or e-mail your resume to and one of our recruiters will contact you regarding your search.

Today, we were greeted with some surprising, and welcome, news from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  The nation’s unemployment rate is down from it’s all time high and showing signs of recovery.  Each month, I am responsible for gathering employment data, analyzing trends and reporting any relevant information.  A combination of fewer jobs in November with the rise in temporary services employment, we remain optimistic that this is the push toward recovery.

Let’s continue with the positivity.  West Coast Careers has seen a marked increase in employers looking to hire again.  We have three new searches from the past two days alone resulting on 5 new positions with two local advertising giants and a specialty product company on the Eastside.

November flew by and December is off to a great start!  I wanted to share a few notes about West Coast Careers’ recent placements as a small source of encouragement and hope they serve as a small bit of motivation for those currently on the job market.

Currently, we have 6 new hires in the first weeks of their new positions with companies from Lumber Importers, Communication Giants to the Public Sector.  Here is a small sample of recent hires with area employers:

  • Online Account Executive with a leading Seattle Media Group
  • Outside Sales Representative with one of the “Fastest Growing Technology Companies in the US”
  • Payroll Service Sales Rep. in South Seattle Territory

Each candidate placed in these roles came to us with a unique background, skill set and professional outlook, all of which are taken into account prior to arranging any interviews.

Currently, approximately 4 out of 5 of West Coast Careers’ active candidates are unemployed, and our best candidates are the ones willing to do whatever it takes to change that.  I should clarify, you should never compromise your values or beliefs for a job, but right now you NEED to be willing to put in the time preparing for your interviews, have a flexible schedule and be slightly more open-minded than two years ago.  These may seem like little things, but it’s the  “little things” that will make or break you in a tight job market.
