Spring is Here - Get ready to hire!

March 20th marks the first day of Spring! The old saying about the month of March is "In like a lion - out like a lamb." If only that were true this year. Here in Illinois we are preparing to be slammed with another winter storm. While it is currently a beautiful 50 degrees, tonight's forecast includes temperatures in the low 30's and 1-2 inches of snow. Friday's forecast isn't any better - another 2-4 inches of snow, mixed with freezing rain. In fact 7 of the next 10 days will include snowy winter weather.

Many of you are of course in other parts of the country where the weather is fantastic and winter jackets are a thing of the past. For those of you, perhaps the reality of spring is more apparent. From what we have been hearing from our clients, there is a big need to ramp up right now. We have countless job orders for operations managers, dispatcher, coordinators, and customer service specialists. While we have seen 2008 remain somewhat slow, it is definitely stronger than 2007 and we have great expectations for this year's busy summer season.

Let us know what you think! How are you preparing for summer 2008?
