ExecuNet's exclusive Executive Job Creation Index ticked down five points in August to plus five. This is the lowest it has been since last October. This drop reflects the fact that recruiters report only 13 percent of companies will be adding jobs over the next six months, versus 20 percent in our July survey.

Looking for a new job? Help someone to help you.
I think we've all been on the receiving end of emails or phone calls from friends, former business colleagues, acquaintances or network connections that are positioned similarly: "I just lost my job. Do you know anyone who might be hiring?"
Or, maybe you've sent some of those messages yourself, and felt satisified that you've deputized an army of job search scouts on your behalf.
Do you really expect to get great results that way?

There really are few faster ways to injure a great reputation — outside of committing a crime or building a career on false education or experiential claims — than to promise what you cannot, or simply fail, to deliver.
Can you remember the last time someone you know promised you something and then failed to deliver? Maybe it was to recognize a good deed you had done on his behalf. Maybe it was in a response to an immediate need or hoped-for outcome. Perhaps it was just a matter of circumstance. When was the last time you promised something you didn't deliver?

ExecuNet's exclusive Recruiter Confidence Index (RCI) dipped lower in August and continued for the third consecutive month below 40 percent. Recruiters continue to say that there is no broad-based expansion in hiring in this slow growth economy. An RCI above 50 percent would signal a broad-based expansion.
