LaSalle Network, a Chicago-based staffing and recruiting firm, has seen this trend lately, as well. Companies are utilizing contract talent to keep their organizations moving forward in these stringent economic times. I agree, the key to securing an interim executive spot in this market is utilizing your network (don't forget LinkedIn and Twitter!) and growing your expertise in a specific area - companies would rather have a stellar candidate with a specific focus and expertise vs. a mediocre candidate who has minimal experience in lots of areas. It's competitive out there, but there are opportunities!
