Jobs

A job, employment, work or occupation, is a person's role in society. More specifically, a job is an activity, often regular and often performed in exchange for payment ("for a living&quot). Many people have multiple jobs (e.g. , parent, homemaker, and employee). A person can begin a job by becoming an employee, volunteering, starting a business, or becoming a parent. The duration of a job may range from temporary (e.g. , hourly odd jobs) to a lifetime.

    Houma-Thibodaux lost 2,900 jobs over past year

    Houma-Thibodaux lost 2,900 jobs over the 12 months ending July 31, including 100 last month alone, new figures show. The area, comprised of Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes, lost more jobs than any Louisiana metro area except Shreveport, which was down 3,100 over the year, according to preliminary figures released Friday by the Louisiana Workforce Commission. The area continues to struggle from a Gulf of Mexico oil bust that started in mid-2014. Since then, more than 25,000 fewer people have jobs locally, state figures show, a loss of more than one of every four. The U.S. industry has rebounded along with oil prices, but job growth has been limited mostly to inland shale fields, where drilling

    Ohio posts back-to-back months of unemployment rates at 4% or below for first time in 18 years: Statistical Snapshot

    CLEVELAND, Ohio - The state unemployment rate reported for July at 4% marked the first time in 18 years that Ohio has had consecutive months of unemployment rates of 4% or below. The last time rates were this low for consecutive months, the string lasted nearly a year - with Ohio unemployment rates ranging from 3.7% to 4% from August 2000 through June 2001. The rate of 4% reported Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics is considered preliminary, so it could be adjusted later. But, as it stands, June and July marked the lowest seasonally adjusted unemployment rates for Ohio since June 2001. The rate was as low as 3.7% in January and February 2001. Following the recession of 2007-2009, Ohio's

    Why Unpaid Internships Are Unethical

    “Unpaid internships aren't morally defensible.” – Derek Thompson. As a faculty member in a business school, I often get requests from hiring managers or business owners to refer students for internships. Here's one I received recently (individual's name and organization withheld): “…we are going to implement a digital marketing strategy soon.  I would like to get an intern to help us with the effort.  Should I be contacting the career center, or is there another way to post the opening.  This will be an unpaid position for about 10-15 hours per week at first, then we will re-evaluate our needs for next year.” Essentially, the individual wanted a graduate business student, someone well-versed

    Your hiring process is broken — here's how to fix it

    The labor shortage in America is forcing companies in every industry to reassess how they identify, attract, and keep top talent. A 2017 PwC survey of CEOs found that most viewed a lack of skilled workers as the primary threat to their business, and in 2019, hiring and retaining smart, capable people remains the chief internal concern of the entire executive suite, according to a global Conference Board survey. For many leaders in the tech industry, this concern has transformed into overwhelming anxiety as the talent gap continues to widen. When it comes to hiring in the modern business world, and particularly in the world of tech, speed wins. Yet the North American IT industry is home to some

    Rather than relying on exit interviews and their comparisons to occasional employee surveys to determine engagement, organizations can turn instead to big data and advanced analytics to identify those workers at greatest risk of quitting. A new Harvard Business Review article outlines how applying machine learning algorithms to turnover data and employee information can provide a much more accurate picture of workplace satisfaction. This measure of "turnover propensity" comprised two main indicators: turnover shocks, which are organizational and personal events that cause workers to reconsider their jobs, and job embeddedness, which describes an employee's social ties in their workplace and interest
