Economy More Stable This Year Than Last

Bookmark and Share
As reported by Bloomberg BusinessWeek, the economy seems more stable this year than it did last year. Company and household balance sheets are stronger, and retail sales are rising. "The recovery seems more broad-based in the U.S.," says Jonas Prising, president of the Americas at ManpowerGroup. "I see it across industries and I see it across geographies." Risk also is lower, he notes. "The external environment and the factors that affected it last year are a lot less severe this year."

Consumer-loan delinquencies fell across the board in the fourth quarter, the first time that's happened in eight years, according to the American Bankers Association in Washington. Banks have reduced leverage, with financial-institution debt as share of the economy at its lowest level in a decade. And corporations are flush with cash: The ratio of liquid assets to short-term liabilities is the highest since 1954, based on data compiled by the Federal Reserve.

Net-Temps and Job Rooster Bring Jobs to Users' Mobile Phone

Bookmark and Share
Workers looking for temporary, contract jobs can now find them on-the-go

N. Chelmsford, MA, January 25, 2010 - Net-Temps and Job Rooster have partnered to bring mobile recruiting services for the first time to their users throughout the United States. Net-Temps, one of the largest job boards of part-time, temporary and full-time jobs, is adding the service to their current online offering, giving more than a million active jobseekers the opportunity to receive job listings via text message.

"Temporary and contract workers represent a huge portion of the labor force, but many of these folks are not connected to the Internet on a daily or even weekly basis," said Job Rooster CEO Nick Ellis. "Job Rooster eliminates the need for a computer or Internet connection entirely, and simplifies the job search process for workers on the go."

The text-message based mobile platform enables job seekers to receive job alerts on their cell phones and access the newest job postings anytime, anywhere.

Net-Temps VP of Marketing, Sue Booth, commented, "The collaboration with the Job Rooster mobile service helps add additional channels of distribution for employment information for jobseekers. They can receive text messages of job alerts anytime, anywhere directly on their mobile phone and send their favorite job posts directly to their email inbox."

The partnership comes at a time when people are increasingly relying on their cell phones for personal and professional purposes. Roughly 90% of Americans have mobile phones, of which 98% are text message-enabled. The New York Times reported in May 2010 that mobile phones are now used more for text messaging than for talking, with many demographics sending over 100 text messages per month.

This Decision Makes Me Ill

Bookmark and Share
First, I want to lay some ground work.

Having been a recruiter for 22 years (which is straight commission sales), with a lot of repeat clients, and having always been a top producer, I know a thing or two about sales. I know a thing or two about the psychology of people, too. These are two of the things that differentiate me from so many other career coaches, and thus allows me to be struggling through the expansion that I am.

I've long discussed the two types of companies and their differences. I've also taught why and how hiring authorities default to "No," and how to get around that in the job seeking process. Learning and understanding that is partially why so many of my clients have found jobs, not easily, but quickly. Need a Job.jpg

And now this. Stupidity. A prime example of one of the two types of companies and an even more emphatic reason why the factors I talk about must be put into play before you start your search.

You know what I'd like to say to these companies and those who made this decision? "There but for the grace of God, go you, you idiots."

Thank goodness for companies like these. Recruiters love them. Companies like this are often the first place to be raided because of their pervasive attitude that manifests itself in so many other ways.

I'd also like to ask them "You couldn't think of any new way to screen? Is your business built on such arbitrary decisions? Does your withdrawing this requirement when asked about it by the media give you any clue at all about the requirement you've just implemented?"

What am I talking about?

Thompson said he also thinks ruling out the unemployed is a bad idea. But he said that part of the problem is that recruiters and human resource departments are being overwhelmed with applications for any job opening that is posted. So they're looking for any short-cuts to get the list of applicants to consider down to a more manageable size.

Is there a way around this? Sure. There are about 5 ways I can think of right off the top of my head. I totally see why this is happening, what the obvious repercussions are for those who are unemployed, and why it makes understanding the psychology and behavioral thinking process of these people all that more important if you want to get around it.

For two years now, "good enough" hasn't been. You've needed to be "cutting edge." Now that's not only more important, you better be razor sharp, and learn this skill called job seeking like your life depended on it. Because it looks like it might.

Out-of-work job applicants told unemployed need not apply

Seven Ways to Motivate Employees

Bookmark and Share
4 out of 10 employees do not feel their supervisor supports their growth.

The Problem

The challenging economy of the past few years has exacerbated the problem of motivating employees.

employee.jpgFor many, rising health care costs have gobbled up most of the meager raises they have received. Advancement opportunities have been severely limited due to the lack of growth of their organizations. And they have become disillusioned with management due to continuous reports about the corruptness of senior management at many leading U.S. corporations. They are feeling over worked, unappreciated, and under compensated.

Who Shall I Say is Calling?

Bookmark and Share
This is kind of an offbeat entry but I was recently sending an email and I had to stop myself and double check my grammar. I was sending the email to someone who notices such things. Knowing when to use who and when to use whom has stumped a lot of people. In modern spoken English the distinction between who and whom has pretty much disappeared and whom is going out of use. It is more strictly applied in formal written English. So how do you remember when to use what? Here's an easy tip:

You use who when you are referring to the subject of a clause and whom when you are referring to the object of a clause. If you think in terms of people, the subject is the person doing something. The object is having something done to them.

Example 1: Jessica is the girl who found the missing dog.
Jessica was the one doing something

Example 2: This is my friend Peter, whom I met at the conference.
Peter is the object of the introduction.

Make sense? No? My mother was a sixth grade teacher and head of the language department. Here's a trick she would tell her students to remember which to use by plugging in the word he or him.

The pronoun him; ends with an m just like whom. Ask youself if the answer to the question would be he or him.

Example: Whom do you like best?
The answer is I like him the best, so you use whom

Example: Who broke the vase?
The solution is he broke the vase, so you use who.

So there you have it. The usage of who and whom de-mystified.
