The Top 10 States Most (and Least) Affected by the New Federal Overtime Rules
Last week, the federal government unveiled new overtime rules for full-time salaried employees. As of December 1, anyone in that category making up to $47,476 a year will be eligible for overtime pay, and the Department of Labor projects that 4.2 million people will receive a boost to their incomes as a result. This new threshold more than doubles the old one, which was set at $23,660 back in 2004. The federal government is anticipating a similarly substantial impact on the number of people who...

What’s the Highest Paying Job for a New Tech Graduate?
This summer, new graduates will enter an employment market healthier than any we’ve seen in a long time. Some will find work quickly, while for others the search will take a little longer.

How Employers Can Turn the Student Debt Crisis Into a Recruitment Opportunity
While the media loves to stereotype millennials as a spoiled, naive bunch, a new Indeed survey of the graduating class of 2016 paints a different picture of this much-maligned generation.* Although 86% of the latest wave of millennials to enter the workforce report feeling “somewhat” or “very optimistic” that they will find a full-time job after graduating, we find this upbeat attitude is grounded in financial realism. An identical percentage of respondents has already started paying or...

How the Recruiter’s Job Has Transformed
Ten years ago, the traits that separated an average recruiter from a great one included things like tenacity, networking ability and sales savvy. These attributes are still differentiators, but recruiting now also requires solid analytical skills and an understanding of a range of technology platforms. At the same time, there are things technology can’t replace or make obsolete, and those are the human elements to what we do. It’s this ideal mix of tech-centric and empathic skills that will...

The Global Nursing Shortage, and How to Fix It
Nurses are vitally important professionals who care for us when we’re at our most vulnerable. Whether we meet them in doctor’s surgeries, emergency rooms or even disaster areas and war zones, we rely on nurses to help us and our loved ones get better. But while nursing can be a deeply rewarding career it can also be emotionally taxing, and the hours are often long and irregular—with the result that healthcare employers often struggle to fill roles. Let’s take a look at the state of the...

The Secret to Keeping Your Employees From Leaving You
According to the Bureau of Labor statistics the average professional switches jobs every three to four years and when you have to fill that position that can cost you big bucks. The secret to recruitment and retention is the same thing. It all comes down to corporate culture. Corporate culture is your employer brand. You can’t tell me that an employer who offers flexible hours, free lunches, an open door policy, and nap pods shouldn’t highlight those things in their job description.

Self Belief & Embracing Your Inner Badass
“The moment you have the audacity to start believing in the not-yet seen, your reality will begin to shift…you have to change your thinking first, and then the evidence appears.  Our big mistake is that we do it the other way around.  We demand to see the evidence before we believe it to be true.” ~ Jen Cincero, Author     In my world of civil engineering executive search this is a very powerful statement.  I have the privilege of working with civil engineering...

May the 4th Be With You: Jedi and Other Weird Job Titles on Indeed
Here at Indeed we’re big Star Wars fans, and like pretty much everybody else on the planet we loved Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Even so, the film’s huge success did leave us wondering if we’d see a spike in weird job titles and descriptions in its aftermath. After all, titles like “Self Quantification Jedi Knight” might sound awesome, but they confuse job seekers who are left wondering what the job will actually entail. This being May 4th—Star Wars Day—we thought we’d check...

US Jobs Report: Continued Employer Demand Fuels Rise in Job Opportunities Outside the Big Cities
So far, 2016 has been a strong year for the US labor market, with 628,000 jobs added in the first quarter. This follows the steady trend of gains seen in recent years, and we expect Friday’s jobs report from the federal government will show this growth continuing into the second quarter of 2016, as employer demand for workers remains robust. Indeed data, meanwhile, shows that demand is strong not only across most industries (with the exception of energy-related jobs) but also regionally. Here,...

On a daily basis I speak to all types of civil engineers.  Those who specialize in rail & transit, highways, traffic & transportation planning, land development, and water/wastewater, just to name a few.  Above all else, what I hear most when I ask them what they love about their profession, is that they love the opportunity to be creative.  The ability to look at a raw piece of land and the different contours and deliver an idea to a client that is new and original;  the ability...

Why Administrative Professionals Day Matters—and Why These Jobs Are Hard to Get
Tomorrow is Administrative Professionals Day—a time to thank the people who manage the big schedules and the big egos but often don’t get the big paychecks. From Indeed’s perspective, it’s also a time to ask: just how sought after are administrative roles in the age of organization apps and shared calendars? The answer, perhaps surprisingly, is that “administrative assistant” continues to be among the most searched for jobs in the US. It comes in third just below roles...

Infographic: New Jobs in Solar Could Outpace Oil by Next Year
This Earth Day, a landmark climate agreement will be signed by 130 nations at a UN ceremony—the greatest number of countries to ever sign an international treaty. This is a clear signal that global leaders are committed to addressing climate change, an investment that’s reflected in labor markets worldwide—there are an estimated 7.7 million direct and indirect jobs in the renewable energy sector.
