Are your parents sabotaging your job search?
Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Forget coaching Little League or chairing the PTA, according to new research, almost 40 per cent of college students claim that their father or mother is their professional mentor. Oy vey. Your parents mean well and, arguably, you won't find people more invested in your future happiness than good ol' Mom and Dad, but the fact is that they simply aren't equipped to give you the guidance you need to launch or manage your career. Here's why Millennials should look elsewhere for job hunting help. More

How a robot will steal your job
Gizmodo    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
On a visit to Standard Motor Products' fuel-injector assembly line in South Carolina, Atlantic writer Adam Davidson asked why a worker there, Maddie, was welding caps onto the injectors herself. Why not use a machine? That's how a lot of the factory's other tasks were performed. Maddie's supervisor, Tony, had a bracing, direct answer: "Maddie is cheaper than a machine." Davidson's complex, poignant story, Making It in America, revealed some chilling data about where American manufacturing is headed. It's a matter of simple math. Maddie makes less in two years than a $100,000 machine would cost, so her job is safe — for now. More

Survey shows college students are not doing enough to prepare for post-college job hunt
City Town Info    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A recent study showed that many college students do not do enough to prepare for the post-college job search. According to the survey, students were failing to aggressively prepare by not taking advantage of technology and networking opportunities. Millennial Branding, a research and consulting firm, and queried more than 200 U.S. college students in August 2012 for 'The Student Career Development Study.' Many of the students surveyed did intend to enter the workforce after college, but needed to work on their job hunting skills.

Facebook becomes your new job-search friend
Business Insider    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Instead of getting fired from your job for trolling Facebook or posting pictures during the day, you can now use it to find a new career opportunity. Facebook's Social Jobs Partnership app, has an impressive 1.7 million job listings. But the jury's still out on whether those listings can actually be sorted in a way that makes them helpful and relevant for job seekers.

The company teamed up with the U.S. Department of Labor and five other job-listing services to help users access a wide variety of jobs throughout the country and abroad. More

Career mapping helps IT employees and employers alike
Computer World    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
'What's my next move?' At some point in their careers, most IT professionals will ask this question of their managers — and, unfortunately, many managers will be ill equipped to answer in depth. Either they won't have a good grasp of the employee's talents, interests and goals, or they will lack details on potential career paths within their companies — or both. Career mapping, or pathing, as it's sometimes known, originated in the field of human resources and has since branched out. It's particularly valuable to larger organizations that are seeking to institutionalize their career management programs, enhance their workforce development and succession planning strategies, and cut down on costly employee defections, according to Ginny Clarke, president and CEO of Talent Optimization Partners in Chicago and author of Career Mapping: Charting Your Course in the New World of Work.
