Job Seeker Said He Put Up a Billboard Because 'Nothing Else Was Working'
We often hear from job seekers who are frustrated with traditional job search tactics and feel the need to take the road less traveled to stand out. We’ve heard about a lot of interesting gimmicks, like the girl who wanted to work at Airbnb so she built a webpage to highlight her resume to mimic an Airbnb posting, or someone else who created wrappers for chocolate bars with her resume in place of the nutrition label, or Daniel Siebert who just this week put up a billboard to advertise that he...

Job Market Ends First Half of 2016 on a High Note
On Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released their employment report for the month of June — and the results were very good. With 287,000 new jobs added to the US labor market, this report signals a reversal after several months of declining labor market gains. After a trend of weak numbers leading up to last month’s meager payroll increase of 11,000, this rebound shows that employers are still hiring at a solid clip and that the US economy is ending the first half of 2016 on a strong...

June was an eventful month for the global economy, to say the least. Most recently, the Brexit vote in the UK has caused substantial uncertainty, which banks and businesses definitely don’t like (neither do job seekers, actually). The end of the month was so consumed by events across the pond, it would be easy to forget that we didn’t begin June with very encouraging economic news either. With only 38,000 jobs added in May, last month’s jobs report was disappointing at best. May’s jobs...
