More short term jobs- Americans have to look at jobs differently, with many accepting temporary and part-time positions rather than holding out for full-time permanent work. 8. The IT consolidation trend- The major players in the field have lots of incentives to keep adding to their range of offerings. One way theyre doing that is by snapping up smaller firms. 9. The importance of internships- Because of the shortage of jobs, landing an internship is going to be more important than ever. 10. Negotiate a package, not a salary- You should value the entire package and quantify everything. How you do that is up to you. Your compensation number should factor in what is essential to you and what is non-essential.
