We had the good fortune to meet and work with some of the Boston area’s brightest creative talent. We saw clients make steady increases in hiring, and job seekers going above and beyond, working with us to refine their professional personas, sharpen their skills, and take their marketability to the next level. Finding a new career (or maintaining one) was very much a priority for most of us in 2011. The determination and spirit we witnessed was admirable.
Companies faced challenges as well. We worked with innovative clients in the New England area who realized that business still needs to get done in challenging times. Companies are ready to strengthen their brands utilizing top-notch talent, contributing to a more positive economic outlook.
With our experience in the creative industry, we see trends come and go in the blink of an eye (kind of like Kim Kardashian’s much-hyped nuptials) but there are some recent hiring trends that look like they’ll stay as we move into 2012.
As you put down the bottle of champagne after mumbling the lines of “Auld Lang Syne” (does anyone really know all the words?), make sure you tune in for our upcoming series featuring the latest job market predictions for 2012 with valuable insights you won’t want to miss.
In the meantime, enjoy the holiday season and everyone at CM Access wishes you a prosperous and successful New Year!
