BCS Overland Park Kansas Reports on the Brookings Institute’s Study on Aging Businesses

BCS Leawood Kansas Reports on the Brookings Institute’s Study on Aging Businesses


According to a recent economic study by the Brookings Institute, larger companies are aging, while newer companies are living shorter lives, or are not starting up at all. The main cause of this is considered to be a decline in entrepreneurship in the U.S.

BCS in Leawood Kansas (near Overland Park) says that for the job seeker this means that paying attention to the longevity of the hiring company is as important as its offering. In other words, in addition to the compensation, the prospective employee must also consider the long term prospects of the firm.   BCS cautions that this does not mean that younger firms do not have a great deal to offer. On the contrary, the Leawood Kansas firm says that some of the best opportunities are found in smaller and mid-size companies.


While the Brookings study points out how aging firms (those that are 16 years or more) are gaining a larger share of the market, new companies are still emerging offering opportunities for executives and professionals.

BCS Leawood Reports on the July 2014 Jobs Report

The new jobs report shows a weaker than expected gain in new jobs for the nation. According to the executive career professionals at BCS in Leawood Kansas the outlook is not so much down, as it is stagnant.

“The economy is showing signs of strengthening,” says BCS, “but the job market has been slow to respond.

Part of the economic growth reports are due to the quantitative easing that is bolstering the stock market, but the housing market and other economic indicators are showing promise as well. In a down market the job seeker must incorporate different methods, outside of the traditional job boards and trade journals.

Finding a job is not the same today as it was 20 years ago, with one big exception; the ability to cultivate a properly developed network. This is a more critical part of a job search than ever. So where are the jobs? According to BCS, “job seekers that follow a well-designed, aggressive marketing plan that includes multiple avenues of search works best.” They find that their clients are landing jobs by demonstrating a skills match through their marketing efforts; and by increasing the job seekers network of potential employers.

“Finding a management position through the traditional channels of online job boards is very difficult for top talent, as the best jobs are often not advertised, or are created for the job seeker before they are ever made available through any traditional channels,” according to BCS Overland Park spokesperson.
