Canadian hiring trends

Though 2008 was wrought with layoffs and economic struggles, the coming New Year means rejuvenated hope for job seekers. While several companies continue to make mass layoffs, other companies are shifting their focus to hire aggressively in the beginning of 2009.  “This is a difficult economy, no doubt. However, I would caution job seekers to be thoughtful about whom they are going to work for and not act out of desperation. There are some very strong companies with solid ethics in need of employees eager to be a part of a thriving organization.”
