Good news for job seekers in a tight job market

DALLAS, TX -- Some people want to persuade you that looking for a new job is a brutal, dog-eat-dog competition, that you must overcome nearly insurmountable odds to be the one-in-a-hundred candidate that wins the job offer. There's no doubt that our current economic downturn presents challenges to job seekers. But it's not all doom and gloom. Today's career market offers major advantages to you the job seeker.
While in the past workers often stayed with one company for decades, if not an entire career, today's workers change jobs, industries, or even careers several times over. This ongoing turnover is known as "churn." The constant churn of workers switching jobs means that at any one time there are plenty of job openings for you--even amid low unemployment rates or corporate cutbacks.
With each job you hold, you gain new experiences, develop new skills, and solve new problems. Best of all, you aren't obligated to stick with an unfulfilling job. You are an in-demand human resource empowered to negotiate for a job that is satisfying in terms of compensation, social fulfillment, and personal mission.
