Talent Factor 145
While the U.S. workforce may be gradually shifting toward office-based jobs, hundreds of non-desk occupations are still thriving, according to a new CareerBuilder/Economic Specialists Intl. study.
You may have asked unusual questions to assess a candidate's competencies during a job interview, but have you ever asked something illegal? A new CareerBuilder survey shows that the boundaries aren’t clear when it comes to what’s OK to ask versus questions that are off limits from a legal perspective.
The U.S. workforce has seen a dramatic shift in age since 2001. According to a special report from CareerBuilder, at the turn of the century, 5.2 million jobs were held by workers ages 14-18. By 2014, that number dropped 33% to 3.5 million. Meanwhile, jobs held by workers ages 55 and older have grown by 40%, from 20.6 million to 28.9 million.
A recent CareerBuilder special report explores how an increasingly diverse population is affecting the composition of nearly 800 occupations by gender, age and race/ethnicity.
Among key findings, data shows that there are more women in the workforce today than at any point in U.S. history. In 2014, 49 percent of jobs were held by women, compared to 48 percent in 2001.
While companies across the U.S. are employing this hiring strategy to allow for staffing flexibility, some metro areas have a greater volume of temporary jobs than others.
46% of employers plan to hire temporary or contract workers this year, according to a new CareerBuilder study. Of these employers, 56% plan to transition temporary and contract workers to full time positions, up from 43% last year.
Temporary employment is expected to increase by 3 percent (75,384 jobs) from 2014 to 2015 and 13 percent (354,877 jobs) over the next five years from 2014 to 2019, according to a new CareerBuilder study based on data from Economic Modeling Specialists Intl (EMSI), CareerBuilder’s labor market analysis arm.
