Jobs and The Stock Market:
How To Find A Job in San Diego using TigerSoft.
Use This Approach for Any Region You Like.
San Diego's Job market and stock market are closely related. Here is the TigerSoft
composite index of all San Diego's publicly traded companies.
---------------------- TigerSoft Index of San Diego Companies --------------------------
Index is in a downtrend that can be traded with a 50-day Stochastic.
The line at the bottom of this chart compares this index with the Dow Jones
TigerSoft's Power-Ranking programs makes it easy to rank any group of stocks you wish
for any time period you like.
Job seekers would do well to call on the companies with the best performing stocks.
They are much more likely to be hiring and expanding. A wave of new hiring by a company
often coincides with a rising stock.
When you call on them, consider mentioning that you used some ranking software and they were
at the top of the list. Honest compliments are always appreciated. And if they sound interested,
tell them the way their stock has best been traded for the last year. They probably have shares
and will be interested.
TigerSoft readily posts the best trading system for the last year at the top of any stock's chart
you wish. Not all are worth mentioning. But in many cases the trading gains are +75%, +100% or
even +300% in stocks that are seemingly only going side-wise. Look at the stock for the company
below (CYTX - Cytori Therapeutics, Inc. ). The TigerSoft chart shows that Buy and Sell signals
based on a 50-day Stochastic would have gained someone trading this stock +257% for the last year.
Mention this to someone in the company and it will get their attention.
--------------------------------------- TigerSoft Buy and Sell Signals ----------------------------------------
When there are fewer stocks going up, like now, notice the companies that show lots of blue
Accumulation. Many times the accumulators are buying with an eye to where the stock may
be in a year. So a spike of blue Accumulation or steady blue Accumulation, provided the stock is
not in an outright decline, may well show good things are expected for the company and they will be
hiring. They will remember you if you predict their stock will soon be rising and they will
be expanding and all it comes to pass a month or two after you called on them.
------------------------------------------------ Spike and Steady Accumulation ------------------------------------------------------
Getting A Job Is A Serious Undertaking
A last piece of advise: hire a professional consultant, like http://hightechpros.com/ ,
about how best to prepare for the interview process and when in the interview to discuss your salary.
