How about from the employee side? What advice do you have for someone looking for a new job?
Make sure your resume is clean. Don't overstate your skill set because you will get called on it. Be communicative. Stay in touch. If someone is on the fence and not sure they want to make a move, it's safe. It's their market. Now is a great time to make move if you're in the market.
Finally, how important is corporate culture to an individual looking to make a move today?
You want to make sure the person is the right fit for their environment, especially smaller, family run shops. If someone move around a lot, that shoots up red flags. Take the candidates to do a half-day ride along with someone on your staff. See how they interact with clients. You can get a pretty decent idea for what that person's really like.
