This morning, I attended an exclusive media event organised by Resource Solutions, a breakfast discussion session about the latest trends in hiring practices, for financial-related jobs as well as other key sectors. This breakfast was held at Raffles Hotel, inside one of the private rooms, and special mention goes to the fantastic egg’s benedict.
Overall, the job market has improved slightly over the past year, but what is interesting is that a large part of this improvement comes from an increase in temp hires, as opposed to permanent hires. Such arrangements are more likely to find favour with employers rather than employees.
It was a great and memorable session, getting to meet some familiar faces in the media industry and catching up with them. I also got a lot of useful insights about the hiring process and procedures, which I am certain will be useful when it comes to hiring new traders.
