“You must do the thing you think you cannot do” – Eleanor Roosevelt
The job market in New York is heating up, with the big financial institutions leading from the front (okay, not all of them). Not sure if NY typically recovers from a recession earlier or later, but my recruiter friends tell me they have more jobs than they can fill. Somewhat of a disconnect from the current unemployment rate, but I do think this is a job mismatch (job types available versus current candidate pool) rather than a lack of new jobs. That being said, the common theme from the companies listed today is that they all lost jobs last year. But, the good news is that they are all hiring now and the skill sets required not focused in any one area (so a broader increase in jobs).
- Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe – Ranked at 95 on this year’s list, Orrick is a Law Firm with over 2,200 employees worldwide (over 1,400 in the US), they lost 121 jobs last year but expect to hire this year. Their careers page has a number of links left center page for US Law Students & Associates, Hong Kong and London Graduate Recruitment, Paris Graduate Recruitment, Lateral Partners & Associates and Legal Assistants & Professional Staff. You will need to check the link/category that applies to your background. They had 14 job opportunities when I checked the site.
- Intuit – A software company, known for products such as Quicken and Turbotax, Intuit has over 7,300 employees, lost over 400 jobs last year and are ranked 94. Their main career page has a number of links to latest job openings on the right hand side of the page and information about careers on the center page, in three categories. A “Search all jobs” button is on the top right hand side of the page where you can conduct a search. There were 269 job opportunities when I check the site. You can register and upload your resume. Clicking on Apply on any job takes you to the registration page (if you’ve not already registered) or asks you to log-in.
- Starbucks Coffee – 93 on this year’s list (down from 24), Starbucks is well known worldwide as a great place to work as well on the “most ethical companies” list. Their career site provides company background (including a video) and has a number of resources for job seekers. They have a section on various career resources on the right hand side of the screen. Clicking on the job type links center page allows job search by career type. Once you click your career type, you can create a profile, upload your resume and save searches. A quick search in the US yielded 277 job opportunities when I checked.
- Gilbane – Ranked 92 on the list, Gilbane is involved in Real Estate and Construction. They are one of the largest privately held companies in the US with over 1,900 employees and they lost 233 jobs last year. The link leads directly to their job search page. A quick search returned 51 job opportunities when I checked.
- FedEx – Chances are one of your packages has been delivered by FedEx. We’ve all heard of this company, ranked 91 on this year’s list. FedEx has locations all over the US and internationally. FedEx has over 218,000 employees in the US and another 33,000 outside of the US. They actually had a net decrease in jobs last year of 5,800 (impact from the economy). Their career site has a video with a company overview with tabs in the middle of the page for Job Search, Job Agent, Job Cart, Areas of Talent and more. You must select a country before you can search for jobs (mid right hand side of the page). There were over 1,400 job opportunities in the US when I checked the site.
Good luck in your search.
