RIDGEFIELD, CT (WCBS 880) - Jobs? Available jobs? Yes!



WCBS 880′s Sean Adams reports

There’s a little hint that, yes, things are getting better from Main Street in Ridgefield, Connecticut.

“There’s a lot of work for the niche that we’re in, which is skilled I.T.,” David Marceau told WCBS 880 reporter Sean Adams.

Who would quit a job during a recession? Marceau did because he saw an opportunity.

He left his job in information technology and started Ridgefield One to help others find work.

Marceau said, “When there’s a downturn, a lot of times, the first people that get cut are I.T. people because they’re expendable and they can keep limping along on a skeleton crew, but then what happens is projects pile up.”

He says the pendulum is swinging back. Firms are hiring again, but if you’re older and you’ve been unemployed for a while, sharpen your skills.

“They really need to increase their skill set if they’re having trouble finding work. Maybe take a course in web development or application development. Get some current hands-on skills,” says Marceau.
