Job Trends of 2010

03.01.10   |   Job Search & Career   |   Dan Fantasia, Founder and CEO of Treeline Incorporated

The new market has created several new market trends for 2010, however one of the most significant trends we see here at Treeline is found in the technology industry. Our technology clients are currently the most aggressive when it comes to hiring sales professionals and the majority of our open roles are for software companies. They certainly have the most urgency and are the most progressive to adapt in the new market. They have adopted many new sales strategies that have proven to be not only effective but efficient. The majority of the changes have been in the structure of the sales team. The traditional technology sales force is comprised of a lead generation team, inside sales team and a field sales team. In the late 90's and for the decade that followed many technology companies built a very large field sales presence. Over the years, we have helped many companies build large field sales teams however over the past year and a half the sales model has changed. With cloud computing and the conversion from applications to Software as a Service (SaaS), we have seen a rise in consumer confidence and an adoption to purchasing products via web demos and conference calls. Therefore the need for a large field sales presence is not as cost effective or efficient as it once was. Technology companies are progressively moving away from a large field sales force and more aggressively trending toward an inside sales presence.

What is the Most Secure Job for 2010?

01.22.10   |   Job Search & Career   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

When the stock market fell off a cliff and credit was frozen and virtually impossible to find, companies moved aggressively to take shelter and weather the storm by cutting payroll and other expenses. Those who managed to survive and stay standing at the end of 2009 will see revenue growth in 2010. Those resilient companies will prosper on this long road to recovery throughout the coming years and they will create opportunities and focus on growth, not consolidation. The strong companies today are betting on their ability to bring in revenue and they are confident and see an incredible opportunity to grow their business. 2010 will be a building year, a year to focus on re-securing the footings and foundation in order to build a stronger more aggressive company in 2011. So what is the one job companies create when they are feeling confident in their ability to drive revenue? SALES JOBS!

Top Hiring Trend of 2009: Risk Aversion

12.14.09   |   Sales Recruiting   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

As 2009 draws to a close, many of us are keeping our eyes on the road and hoping to find a stronger and more productive 2010, yet we can't seem to help looking in the rear view mirror. As sales professionals, we want to be able to fully understand any downfall we had this past year and learn from our mistakes. Some of the loses we endured are unpreventable where others can teach us how to be leaner and meaner in the future. We also look back and analyze the past in order to better understand the future and any possible indicating trends we need to keep an eye on. That being said, we at Treeline have taken a look back and analyzed the hiring trends of 2009 and have identified one overwhelming behavior of all companies: risk aversion in hiring decisions. In December of 2008, dozens of economists and employment organizations started making predictions on hiring trends in 2009. At that point we had already experienced a taste of what was to come with the economic recession, however, reports indicated that we would see bigger paychecks, flexible work arrangements and bigger budgets for employee branding. All sound promising and exciting, however none of them true. Instead, we have seen companies tighten the belt on budgetary expenditures and avoid unnecessary loses. That being said, companies who were able to hire did so gingerly and continue the same behavior.
