I have been an executive recruiter for the past 5 years and throughout my tenure in this profession I have heard a plethora of excuses as to why a candidate cannot attend an interview. Often times, the cancellation comes the day of the interview, leaving recruiters like myself to scramble and put out the fire with our clients. There have been instances where a candidate has to cancel an interview for reasons to do with their current job: surprise visit from a client, unexpected ride day with the boss, etc.

What do you do when the last job on your resume ended a year ago? What do you do when you are applying for a job and the interviewer asks, "What have you been doing most recently?" and all you can think of is, "I have been looking for a job." Unfortunately, in this market, this is a regular occurrence in interviews.

<p>In this market, many of us are looking for the next great and growing industry that will launch our careers and help pull this country out of this recession. We all have our own ideas of what the industry will be and if you are currently out of work or looking for a new position, chances are you have the desire to reinvent yourself to excel in the hottest industry. Most likely, you have thought about targeting Green/Renewable Energy as that next step in your career. Solar power, wind power, hydro-power, bio-diesel, e-waste, and the list goes on - these types of organizations combined make up an industry that is growing exponentially. In this day and age, these things are no longer a 'nice to have', but are quickly becoming a 'must have.'

n this type of marketplace, it is becoming more and more common to hear the phrase, "I need a job." A large number of those professionals are in need of a position for financial reasons, however there are plenty of sales professionals who are financially secure but are in desperate need for a job due to the lack of challenge and the insatiable hunger for something new. As sales professionals, we are addicted to the win and are driven by the ability to drive our own destiny.
