Stay in the loop: Whats really going on in our job market?

I have been reading about career decisions, and I’ve learnt to look, not only on the income brackets and accessibility of jobs available in the job market at this moment in time, but the future of these jobs and the economic implications, which more than ever, are beginning to paint a dim outlook for anyone who is not keeping up with whats going on in the world and in our country.

So I picked a few articles that I have read. I think they are all eye-opening and worth the read, especially for anyone thinking about entering a new career; starting college or hoping to start internships (apprenticeships) and so forth. Its all meant to keep us open and ready for change… beating the new tides of innovation, training and education:

Here are the articles, please read and have fun:

Why Women Quit Working: It’s Not for the Reasons Men Do
This one looks into the difference between why men go unemployed versus why women go unemployed. It looks at the kind of jobs men are going for versus, the growing responsibility of women, not only in the workplace but also at home.

And take a look at whats really going on in the job market, number wise. There is alot that still needs to catch our attention: ‘who is unemployed?’ ‘Why?’ and ‘How is that changing?’ and ‘What does the future looks like?’

NAMI walk and Summer Job

First I want to talk about NAMI walk. I had an amazing time on Saturday being able to be around people who understand what it is like to suffer from a mental illness is huge. I am vocal about my mental illnesses. I want to make sure that everything I am doing in life really helps me and anyone around me that needs support. Going to the NAMI walk I know that I was helping. My team made over $130. It was exciting to see how many people came out to support mental health. Either for themselves or for friends. I am going to do it next year with hopefully a bigger team. Mental Health awareness is a huge part life and I just want to be able to talk about now and stand up for people who can’t to make it easier for them to get the help they need.

Second those who are home from college and looking for a summer job I totally understand how hard it is for you!!! Having anxiety, I need a job that I can handle. Surprisingly I can talk to people, I have a lot of anxiety when it comes to certain situation. So I really can not work in a restaurant. I have a job in a school that I love so much!! But I need something else. Going through the stress of finding a job that means something to me has taken a lot out of me. If any of you guys have done jobs that you really enjoyed let me know!
Hope you all have a good week!
