Roy Oswalt Seeking Employment

May 29, 2012 · Matthew Blevins

For the most part we at Locate Jobs deal with employment issues within the pages of this blog that the average person can readily relate to – hating your job, becoming suddenly unemployed, finding a better job, etc. But every once in a while it’s fun to look at other types of employment, the “jobs” that people get to do for vast sums of money, relatively speaking. Movie stars, celebutantes, sports stars – all these people technically have a “job” of some sort, but compared to the average Joe, they’re “living the life”, so to speak. With that, we point… [Continue Reading]

LinkedIn Passes on Monster.com: Big Board Still Looking for Buyer

May 14, 2012 · Michael Wist

Shares of Monster Worldwide (NYSE: MWW) jumped over 20% on Friday, as rumors swirled that industry leader LinkedIn might be interested in acquiring the job board behemoth. As those rumors have been swept aside, Monster’s shares have reacted as expected, off about 4% in mid-day trading so far. Looking more closely at the situation with Monster, one has to wonder what its potential sale means for the job board industry and online recruiting in general. LinkedIn is enjoying a very successful ride as a publicly traded company, recently announcing a Q1 revenue jump of over 100%. Simply mentioning LinkedIn in… [Continue Reading]

Sourcing Minority Healthcare Candidates

May 9, 2012 · Michael Wist

Diversity recruiting is an interesting phenomenon – so much so that it has many different names and interpretations, depending on an individual recruiter’s background and personal experiences. As our multi-cultural society evolves and the global community becomes more accessible via social media and other platforms, the barriers that once existed between us are – for the most part – coming down. There is still a tremendous amount of work to be done, but it is happening, rest assured. Forward-thinking recruiters and HR professionals have found themselves on the front lines of the movement toward diversity and inclusion in the workplace.… [Continue Reading]

Outlook for Jobs in Fiber Optics

May 9, 2012 · Matthew Blevins

Though the Bureau of Labor Statistics does not yet have information compiled for 2011, an overview of the fiber optics employment outlook for 2010 can prove instructive for those seeking to enter this particular job market. A very quick overview: as of 2010, there were roughly 270,000 jobs in the field of fiber optics in the U.S., with the median pay just under $55,000 per year (or $26/hour in some cases). It is estimated that 36,000 jobs will be added in the next 10 years in the industry, meaning that opportunities are not vast, but for those who are well-qualified,… [Continue Reading]

Cyber Security Jobs: A New Warrior Emerges

February 24, 2012 · Michael Wist

Given the current political and economic climate in the U.S. and around the world, it’s a safe bet that jobs in Cyber Security and Information Assurance are going to represent two of the most robust government hiring sectors in the years to come. At the most basic level, human warfare is evolving beyond the physical battlefield, with soldiers, guns, tanks and artillery fading as the preferred tools of war. Of course, there will always be some form of that type of conflict. But as societies mature and advance, there is a growing distaste for the wanton death and violence of… [Continue Reading]

Overcoming Unemployment Discrimination

October 27, 2011 · Michael Wist

Recent articles in the New York Times and Forbes have discussed the increasingly common phenomenon of employers running ads only for job applicants who are currently employed or are only “recently unemployed”. The implication here, of course, is that applicants who are currently enduring long-term unemployment need not apply. And while this practice is clearly discriminatory, it’s not illegal – at least, not yet. The Obama Administration’s Jobs Bill contains provisions that would make this type of discriminatory hiring practice illegal, but even with such a provision, only the language of the posts on job boards is likely to change.… [Continue Reading]
