High Demand, High Pay: 10 Opportunities for People Without College Degrees
The election may be over, but that doesn’t mean we have heard the last of the debates that raged along the campaign trail. Among them, one of the most pressing will surely be this: What is to be done about all the people without college degrees who have been left behind in the economic recovery? After all, even when the US monthly jobs report contains what appears to be good news, a little extra digging can reveal that the picture isn’t so rosy for those who never went to college. A 2016...

Black Friday Watch: Where Are Seasonal Retail Workers in Shortest Supply?
Black Friday will soon be upon us and millions of shoppers will shake off their post-turkey stupor to hunt down deals. This year hopes are high that it will be a successful day for retailers: according to the National Retail Federation (NRF), holiday sales for 2016 are expected to increase by 3.6% — which is better than the average growth rate during the economic recovery. Meanwhile retailers expect to add about 690,000 positions to guarantee that their goods will flow into customers’ hands...

Why Culture Fit is Critical in Startup Hiring
For many job seekers, startup companies hold the allure of a high-energy environment, the chance to make a big contribution and the possibility of an outsized reward if the company succeeds and grows. But it’s these high stakes and fast pace that make it crucial to prioritize organizational culture in the startup hiring process. With a small staff, the impact of hiring a great fit—or a mismatch—is magnified. A poor culture fit can bring down the entire venture, while a strong fit can strengthen...

Job Search Out of the U.S. Surged After the Election and Remains Elevated
During the bitter and divisive presidential campaign, many wondered, threatened, or promised to move to Canada if their candidate lost. Some celebrities even went on-record about leaving the U.S. if Trump won. So what happened? Lena Dunham may be taking some heat for “breaking her promise,” but plenty of others Americans were looking for jobs in Canada as Trump’s victory started to look likely and then real. The share of U.S. job searches to Canada suddenly began climbing on election night...

A Deep Look at the Data: How Are Veterans Doing in Today’s Workforce?

Through this program, more than 50 companies have pledged to hire more than 110,000 veterans and military spouses over the next five years. In partnership with Joining Forces, Indeed Military offers free resources to help employers connect with...

October Jobs Report Shows Labor Market at Strongest Point Since Recession
The October jobs report shows that the labor market is clearly at its strongest point since the recession and still strengthening. While job growth of 161,000 was slightly below consensus and the prior-year average, it was more than strong enough to keep the labor market improving, and revisions to previous months were solidly up. And with hourly earnings up 2.8% year-over-year, fastest since the crisis, workers are sharing the benefits. If you wanted to show that the economy is still getting...

Why Paid Parental Leave Strengthens Your Business
By some measures, 2016 has been a banner year for paid parental leave in the United States. New York state and San Francisco passed new paid leave laws in April. Etsy, Twitter and Deloitte are some of the latest companies to implement generous paid leave policies that raise the bar for all employers. And Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made headlines when he took two months off for the birth of his daughter. Yet still only 12 percent of private sector workers in the United States have access to paid...

Early-Bird Jobs: Who Goes to Work in the Dark — and Who Gets to Sleep In
If you left for work in the dark today, you’re not alone. This week and next, about half of us will leave home before sunrise. The typical full-time worker departs for work at 7:20 a.m., according to the U.S. Census, and at this time of year sunrise is in the 7:10–7:30 a.m. range in most of the country. Over the next two weeks, as the days keep getting shorter but before daylight saving time ends on November 6, sunrise comes later in the morning than at any other time of year — later even...

The Great Divide? How the Minimum Wage Impacts Red and Blue States
In 2014 Seattle became one of the first cities in the US to approve a law phasing in a $15 an hour minimum wage — a rate more than double the current federal minimum of $7.25. Since then, similar laws have spread to other cities, while earlier this year New York and California became the first states to adopt a $15 minimum. The campaign to boost the incomes of the nation’s most poorly paid workers has a great deal of momentum and has featured prominently in this election cycle. Initially...

Should You Require a Cover Letter?
The dreaded cover letter. Some recruiters love them, and others have little use for them. But there’s one thing everyone seems to agree on — job seekers hate writing them. Cover letters often veer toward boring and formulaic, or over-the-top. For those candidates who manage to strike just the right balance of brevity, data-backed performance statements and personality, they’re left to wonder: Was the effort worth it? Research suggests employers are relying less on cover letters than they...
