Dave Winslow, CEO of Epik, was interviewed by the Christian Science Monitor for a feature business story on the recent layoff news. The article, Amid layoff news, many companies are still hiring by Ron Scherer, highlighted various companies continuing to grow given the current economic conditions.
Notes from the story included:
"From his vantage point, David Winslow does not see a recession or rising unemployment rate. Instead, the founder of a software company in Burlington, Vt., sees a hiring opportunity."
"Epik expects to grow from 20 employees at the beginning of the year to 40 by year's end.
Winslow's company is far from unique."
"Around the nation, a wide range of companies are still hiring. Some of the new jobs are even in areas that are shrinking, such as financial services. Some positions require advanced degrees, but a variety of skill levels are in demand. High-tech companies, including Epik, are especially looking for workers."
