According to CNN, the Sun Belt will be leading job growth for the next decade. See the top 10 hot spots here: http://money.cnn.com/2006/05/02/technology/business2_nextjobboom_hotcities/index.htm.
How do those “hot spots” of growth align with the results of the 1997 McKinsey report – warning of a shortage of qualified workers over the next decade – that has just been adopted in “Workforce Crisis” and recently released by Harvard Business School Press? Two of the trends mentioned include a shortage of workers and a shortage of skills and experience. And what does that mean for candidates competing for these positions?
If your skills are cutting edge, you understand your unique value to the market place, you can clearly articulate that value, and you are visible to the people who need to know about you – the positions will be yours for the taking.
According to the Career Journal, hot financial specialties include insurance, private banking, and asset management.
What are you doing to ensure that you are positioned to win the job you want?
