PINK SLIP, CALM DOWN

|You've just been laid off or anticipate a pink slip. The Bachrach Group has two words—calm down. The job market isn't as bad as it seems, and real estate is hiring, say execs of the 35-year-old recruitment and consulting firm. They've been placing everyone from the mail room to CEO, says president Richard Bachrach (right), with real estate experts Paul Medaglia, Eric Barker, Alexandra Roth, and gatekeeper Eve Medina.|
|We snapped the group hard at work in its W. 37th St. office. There's a light at tunnel's end: more jobs are coming in than in the past six months, and 92% of the workforce is still employed. It's all about a positive attitude, they say. Their advice for the unemployed: Meet with a good recruiter, update education and licenses, be upfront, and try and keep your sense of humor. Potential layoff? Keep a clean white shirt and updated resume in your top drawer.|
|Richard says the group is busier than ever thanks to its database, client relationships, and referral-based system (as Alex points out). He adds, recruiters are more important than ever, as you're one of thousands vying for the same job; they can match your skills and experience to what companies are looking for, eliminating wasted time. When not in the office, you can find this group on the field: the firm has a softball team, The Bachrach Ball Busters, skilled in double entendre and beating other corporations.|
