Interesting post in the NYT this morning, entitled “Why Should Recession Stop the Recruiters?”

Some good points:

  • “For one thing, word spreads quickly when an employer lets a lot of people go or rescinds job offers. That can hamper future recruiting efforts.
  • Companies do not just lose appeal as employers if they lay off younger workers or freeze hiring. They may also limit their ability to develop future leaders.
  • Scarce talent will still be scarce when the economy improves
