BCS Overland Park Reports on the 2014 Jobs Outlook for Executives

BCS Overland Park Reports on the 2014 Jobs Outlook for Executives

Over the weekend Morning Star (Robert Johnson) reported that the labor markets remain tighter than most people might think. Openings have been on the rise, but the available work force is shrinking. Does this make it a “buyer’s market” for the job seeker? Not so, according to BCS.

 

“The chief culprit of the tight labor market is a skills mismatch. The need to demonstrate transferable skills has never been more important,” according to BCS of Overland Park, Kansas.

 

Reading the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Job Opening and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) there has been a rise in the number of adjusted private job openings. The BLS report shows that the number of unemployed workers per job opening has been on the decline since 2010, getting closer to pre-recession (2008) statistics.

 

So where are the jobs? According to BCS the job seekers that follow a well-designed, aggressive marketing plan that includes multiple avenues of search works best. They find that their clients are landing jobs by demonstrating a skills match through their marketing efforts; and by increasing the job seekers network of potential employers.

 

“Finding a higher level position through the traditional channels of online job boards is very difficult for top talent, as the best jobs are often not advertised, or are created for the job seeker before they are ever made available through any traditional channels,” according to BCS Overland Park spokesperson.

 

The bottom line seems to be that although the market is opening up; but unless you can expand your existing network, locate the better jobs, and demonstrate your abilities, finding a job in this market is still a challenge.

BCS Overland Park Looks at the Top Jobs

BCS of Overland Park Kansas has been researching the top jobs for this year.  According to BCS, there are two classifications of well-paying jobs; executive level jobs and the overall job market.

According to BCS, for executives and professionals the technical sector offers great opportunities for a six-figure income; especially in management, however software developers, with a median salary nearing $90,000, have the best chance at a six-figure income.  Technical sales and sales engineer jobs have also historically been high paying jobs.

As for other specific job titles across the board, the best opportunities are in finance (CFO); Senior-level Human resource managers; Vice President (or Director) of Business Development; senior level internet Marketing Managers; and Vice President of Operations are the job titles that top the list.

BCS also noted that well-paying jobs not in the six-figure realm are highly sought and growing.  They are: Occupational Therapist, Computer Programmer, Physical Therapist, Computer Systems Analyst, Web Developer, Database Administrator, Medical Assistant, Pharmacist, Software Developer, and Registered Nurse.  According to the Overland Park firm, some of these jobs can reach six-figures, but it is not common and not well reflected in their median incomes.

“The job market is still good for some” according to Overland Park’s BCS, “but today’s market requires a different strategy for finding suitable employment.  While many jobs depend on specific skills and training, the executive level job seeker has to demonstrate transferrable skills, and a fit for the organization.   At the senior level, job retraining is probably not the answer for most.”

With the current job market in a slow recovery, many professionals and executives are reaching out to those who can provide assistance with less traditional job search strategies.   Among those strategies is the creation of new networks, web portfolios (executive and professional online, dynamic visual resumes) and the use of technologies that provide real-time information on companies in hiring mode, and lead generation.

BCS Announces The Addition Of Web Portfolio’s

BCS Announces The Addition Of Web Portfolio’s

One of the biggest complaints job seekers have is that they don’t feel like their resumes are getting noticed.  BCS in Overland Park Kansas feels that their new service will put an end to those concerns.  BCS is adding web portfolios to their arsenal of tools to help their clients reach out to employers and get noticed.

 

A web portfolio is specifically designed to help the job seeker get the attention of the hiring decision-maker with better information; and in a more concise and understandable format.  The executive web portfolio can be used to help elevate your interaction during a telephone or one on one interview to give employers or recruiters an in-depth display of your core strengths, skills inventory, experience, career history, and value proposition.

A Career Marketing professional (not a web designer) will work with you to build a dynamic online visually captivating presentation of a candidate’s career credentials on the Internet, showcasing your skills and highlighting your achievements.  “The web portfolio is supercharged with powerful graphics, distinguishes the candidate from the competition, and strengthens your job search and networking activities.”

The web portfolio concept has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, MSNBC, ExecuNet and other online news sources as the new way to get the kind of attention that leads to a job in an increasingly difficult market.

BCS added that there are other major elements to a job search.  Identifying and targeting alternative industries; building a resume focuses on achievements, rather than industry specific experience; and developing heightened interview skills through researching new industry objectives.  “You demonstrate one of two things by the way you interview,” says the team at BCS, “You either establish your knowledge and interest in an industry, or your lack of familiarity and awareness.  Decision makers are impressed when an industry outsider has obviously done their homework, and conduct an intelligent interview.”
