“Here’s a rundown of industries that have high-in-demand jobs and that also require niche skills commonly found in the military, vis-à-vis Shatkin, Jordan Rayboy (President and CEO of Rayboy Insider Search, a recruiting firm specializing in the data storage industry) and John McSpadden (CEO of MAC & Associates LLC, an executive search firm): Federal consulting firms. This industry has the biggest push for new blood, say McSpadden and Rayboy. “The reason is that the federal sector is so hard to understand from a regular civilian viewpoint, that they look for the pedigree from the military,” McSpadden says. “For every service line in the military, there’s a crossover that has to be consulted with.”

Outrageous Interview Blunders 2011

Outrageous Interview Blunders 2011 – Jordan Rayboy Quoted in AOL Jobs.com

The biggest mistake I had a candidate make in an interview was to share with the hiring manager that he had a side photography business he did in his personal time, after hours and on the weekend. This candidate went from being “the guy for the job” to cut loose within five minutes. Everyone understands that what you do in your personal time should be your own business. However, the VP wanted to hire someone that would be fully dedicated to putting in whatever hours it took to be successful in the role.”

Report: many areas of IT will be in high demand

23 Jan 2011, Posted by Rayboy Insider Search in News

Specialized skill sets – such as IT – have continued to help people find jobs in a difficult economy.

IBM sees business analytics as the next hot IT career. According to Tim Powers, businesses and governments are trying to figure out the challenge of making sense of data and turning that into greater performance and better decision-making. Companies need people to implement the technology into everyday business.

But on the other hand, data storage may be the biggest winner, according to Jordan Rayboy, CEO of Rayboy Insider Search. “Storage has always been a great place to be, because no matter how bad the economy gets, storage is always a sizable chunk of any IT budget. Every organization needs to store and manage their critical data. Storage administrators, architects and consultants will always be in high demand.”

IT careers are heating up again — at least in some sectors.

19 Jan 2011, Posted by Rayboy Insider Search in News

IT careers are heating up again — at least in some sectors. So what are the best IT careers for 2011? Is it the mobile market? Enterprise security? Business analytics? The good news is, experts say there is plenty of action across the board for technologists with specialized skill sets.

IBM is betting on business analytics. Tim Powers, a spokesperson for Big Blue’s business-analytics division, said businesses and governments alike are grappling with the challenge of making sense of this data deluge to turn it into new opportunities, increased performance, and faster, better decision-making. Gartner reports business analytics is a top 10 priority for companies in 2011.

“The power of business analytics is transforming this information into a strategic asset. Although having the best, most complete and up-to-date information is useless if you can’t make sense of it,” Powers said. “Data unanalyzed is data wasted. Therefore, businesses and governments need two very important things to make this happen: The right technology, and employees with the right expertise and skill sets.”
