  • Ten Reasons Online Job Applications Are A Waste Of Time

    No one likes dealing with bureaucracy, but some kinds of bureaucracy are easier to tolerate than others. It's no picnic for a kid to get their learner's permit, take driving lessons, complete a written driving exam and then take a driving test in order to get their license. The good news is that the driver's license system works. When your kid completes the steps, they'll get their driver's license. If only job-hunting were such a simple process! When you complete an online job application, you're guaranteed exactly nothing. You may get an interview and you may not. You may hear...
  • U.S. manufacturing so good factories are turning to high school students for labor

    Winning: On the campaign trail in 2016, then-GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump talked of renewing America’s manufacturing potential after decades of decline due to “horrible” trade deals like NAFTA that, he said, led to the loss of tens of thousands of jobs. After just two years, thanks to POTUS Trump’s economic policies of deregulation, tax relief, and other business-friendly measures, the U.S. economy is soaring and manufacturing, especially, is booming. In fact, as UPI notes, the manufacturing industry is expanding so fast factories are having difficulty finding enough workers to fill open positions.

    EDISON - It seems that more millennials are still living with their parents after graduating college, according to a report by the United States Census Bureau. The report found that 47 percent of adults ages 18 to 34 are still living at home in New Jersey, the highest percentage in the nation. Students at Middlesex County College tell News 12 New Jersey that factors like rent, car payments and other expenses leave them with no other option but to continue to live at home.

  • Trump Kicked the Sluggish Economy Into High Gear

    Wall Street Journal ^ | November 25, 2018 | Andy Puzder
    Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said last month that the U.S. is experiencing “a remarkably positive set of economic circumstances.” The superb numbers speak for themselves, but who gets the credit? For eight years under President Obama, the growing burden of government suppressed the economic recovery that should have followed the recession of 2008-09. Mr. Obama nonetheless has claimed responsibility for today’s boom, asking Americans in September to “remember when this recovery started.” Yet it wasn’t until President Trump took office that the economy surged. His administration’s pro-business policies—cutting taxes, slashing regulations and encouraging energy production—released the pent-up dynamism of...

    The Duluth News Tribune ^ | November 19, 2018 | Jeff Ferry
    An interesting thing is happening right now in America's industrial heartland. Manufacturers are adding new workers at a brisk pace. And it's happening right in front of the very pundits and free-trade economists who predicted economic catastrophe over the past year. Simply put, President Donald Trump's tariffs are working. U.S. manufacturing employment has now shown year-on-year growth of more than 250,000 employees for six consecutive months. That's the largest and most sustained manufacturing job growth since 1998. In fact, the U.S. added 32,000 manufacturing jobs in October alone, for a total of 296,000 new factory jobs since October 2017. Overall,...

    Saturn Petcare, pending approval of its bid Tuesday before the Vigo County Redevelopment Commission, is slated to begin production of wet dog food in the first quarter of 2020 in the former Pfizer facility at the Vigo County Industrial Park, south of Terre Haute.

    If, in late 2018, you are contemplating going into quantitative finance, then keep contemplating. Panelists at the recent Quant Conference in London say you’re unquestionably on the right track. “It's super-exciting to be a quant in 2018-2019,” said one panelist (a hedge fund researcher who formerly worked for a large U.S. bank). “Everyone is hiring.” Quants’ enthusiasm for being quants might be dismissed as self-love. Except, they're not the only ones in the zone. Goldman Sachs has proclaimed its pursuit of strats (its own personal brand of quant technologists), while at another conference the week before, the head of recruitment...

    In an effort to beef up the city’s tech workforce, the George Kaiser Family Foundation is offering $10,000, free rent, and other perks to remote workers who move to Tulsa for a year. “I’m a California, New York guy,” Michael Basch tells me. “I figured I’d be really bored here.” “Here” is Tulsa, the second-largest city in Oklahoma, known for its new $465 million public park, the Gathering Place, and its annual Chili Bowl. Since moving there earlier this year, Basch says that he hasn’t been bored at all. The city may be 1,640 miles and a world away from...

    In a tight job market, some employers are making job offers after a single phone interview, The Wall Street Journal reported. The tactic is one of many ways companies are trying to attract workers amid a nationwide labor shortage. Some employees who were offered jobs after one phone call wondered if it was a red flag or a scam. Up against a tight job market, some employers are making job offers after a single phone interview, The Wall Street Journal reported. This strategy is being seen mainly for seasonal jobs at retail companies such as Macy's and Bath & Body...

    Amazon has been an aggressive advocate for diversity. That includes providing strong support for immigrants, minorities, the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities, the military, women engineers and more. When the company was searching for a second headquarters, it made diversity a key issue. To achieve long-term success, Amazon said last year, the winning city must have a diverse population and a community that supports it. Does that also mean diversity in politics, geography and even home prices? Apparently not, because Amazon chose two locales — New York City and Washington — that have a lot in common with its hometown...

    It's never been a better job market for private equity professionals, with the sector seeing the most active hiring market ever, according to a new report.

Bonuses are rising, too: 77% of those surveyed said their bonus increased from...

    Spirit AeroSystems plans to add 320 new jobs as part of the construction of a new building at Air Capital Flight Line in south Wichita. The new jobs are part of an $18 million industrial revenue bond request from Air Capital that the Wichita City Council approved Tuesday.

Air Capital is located directly across Oliver Street from Spirit’s Wichita...

The company also has several open positions listed on its website. For more information, visit https://www.sswhite.net/now-hiring.
