Mobile job searching is easier than it seems if you are able to separate fact from fiction.
Using your smartphone to conduct a mobile job search will likely lead to frustration, according to the Washington Post.
The Post’s reasoning is based on recent studies that reveal many employers have not optimized their job application web pages for mobile devices. Job seekers are having bad experiences applying for jobs on career sites that were designed for desktops and laptops, not smartphones and tablets.
We agree that a poorly designed application page would cause headaches for a savvy job seeker trying to use his or her smartphone to find work. We also believe that conducting a mobile job search does not need to be painful, and that misleading information may be preventing job seekers from unlocking their full potential and finding employment.
Job hunting while employed can be stressful and risky. That’s why it is important to handle your private job search like a professional.
If you are happily employed, then finding a different job might be the last thing on your mind. But what if you are an unhappy employee? Once you have a job, it can be tricky to go about searching for a different job. Whether you are seeking better pay, better working conditions, or just a change of pace, conducting a private job search may be your best bet to finding career happiness and staying stress-free.
The overall unemployment rate may be at a four-year low, but youth unemployment is still a problem.
The U.S. economy added 165,000 jobs during the month of April, according to the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics report. This caused the unemployment rate to drop to 7.5 percent, a four-year low. We are encouraged by this news, but feel it paints an inaccurate workforce picture, especially when it comes to youth unemployment.
Young workers (ages 18 to 29) represent an important piece of the job market puzzle, and recent employment data reveals a struggle to make the piece fit cleanly.
