July 2014 Newsletter for Accounting Professionals from Diane Delgado LeMaire @ CFS

July 2014
Industry News and Updates

Hot, hot, hot! Yes, it is summer time in Houston. The weather is not the only thing that is hot right now, the job market is on fire too. It seems like every client I have ever worked with is adding headcount to their accounting / finance departments this year. The majority of the roles being added are staff and senior accountants, as well as financial analysts. The energy industry continues to dominate with hiring demands, but retail, construction and real estate are also picking up speed. So as predicted the Houston market is continuing to improve. Traditionally the 3rd quarter tends to be the busiest quarter every year for me and I don’t see things slowing down anytime soon.

CFS is also hiring and trying to keep up with the demands of the market. You have probably already noticed an increase of emails and phone calls from recruiters. There will be a lot of new recruiters jumping into this market. Be careful who you trust with your resume and your job search. Not all recruiters are created equal! LinkedIn is a great resource to see who you want to work with. By the way, are we connected? http://www.linkedin.com/in/dianedelgadolemaire/

Until next time..
