Yoh Announces OFCCP Compliance

Exciting news for all you job seekers. Today, Yoh announced that we’ve integrated Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) compliance into our hiring programs. And while this is good news for companies working with Yoh to find high-impact talent, its even better news for our candidates. With this compliance program in place, we are helping the OFCCP enforce laws to ensure all applicants have equal employment opportunity without regard to race, color, gender, religion, or national origin.

The world is your oyster

If your ears perked up when we blogged about regional hot jobs recently, then you might be the perfect candidate for relocation. Indeed, IT pros struck with wanderlust have a wealth of opportunities before them, whether coast-to-coast in the U.S., or across the four corners of the globe.

Of course, finding that far-flung job can be difficult without the right help. Here, talent and staffing firms can help streamline the hiring process, and connect you with employers you might not find otherwise.

And when you do find that new adventure, carefully weigh your options and priorities. Will this move benefit you professionally? Financially? Personally?

It would be a shame to show up on distant shores, bags in hand, only to realize the new gig isn’t the right fit. So put in the evaluation and soul-searching upfront to make sure the risk is worth taking.

OK, your turn. How has relocation affected your career? Success stories and cautionary tales welcome!
