Maneuvering Your Career When the Ground is Shifting Under Your Feet

When we counted down to the end of 2000 and the start of 2001, I had a sense of a market turn as sharp and as swift as a Chinese cleaver cutting through steak. Within the
first week of the New Year, all of the major high-tech corporate clients (not dotcoms) we had been representing put their searches on hold. The dotcom shakeout was having a
ripple effect and the economic warnings and uncertainty with the new administration added to the jitters. If this reaction weren't so potentially chilling, it would have been
amusing.
