job search notes: giganomics

This week, I'll combine "5 for Friday" and this focus on job search notes to review giganomics.

One term that pretty much describes an approach to the slowly recovering economy is giganomics. The job recovery is not going to be quick, especially from the Fortune 500 where many of the jobs have been likely lost permanently. The recovery will come from the small to medium business and entrepreneurs. Hence, it will be a slowly more organic growth.
