US job openings rise to record high, layoffs hit record low

2021-07-08T18:01:10+00:00 July 8th, 2021|

By: CHRISTOPHER RUGABER WASHINGTON — U.S. employers posted a record-high number of open jobs for the second straight month as a rapidly rebounding economy generates intense demand for workers. The number of available jobs on the last day of May rose slightly to 9.21 million, from 9.19 million in April, the Labor Department said Wednesday. That is the highest since records began in December 2000. The previously-reported figure for April of 9.3 million was revised lower.The number of people quitting their jobs slipped in May from a record high in April, but remains elevated. And the percentage of workers getting laid off hit a record low in May, the report said.The figures point to a tight job market, with employers forced to pay more to attract workers yet still struggling to fill open jobs. And many workers are leaving jobs for better-paying positions at other companies. It’s unusual for such dynamics to have kicked in with the unemployment rate still elevated at 5.9% in June, as the government reported last week.In May, there was essentially one open job for every unemployed American, a situation that is far more typical of an economy with a much lower unemployment rate.But the lingering [...]

How To Be Personable During A Virtual Job Interview

2021-02-25T18:00:22+00:00 February 25th, 2021|

Welcome to CMC’s Corner! CMC would like to share a “Social Grace” from Hannah Herrera Greenspan, Chicago Tribune, to help put your best self forward by being personable for an interview… “Q: How can you come across as personable during a job interview on the phone during the pandemic? A: Simple — stay upbeat and positive. Likewise, be empathetic and take a genuine interest in others: Ask how your interviewers are doing, let them know that you hope they are staying safe and busy, and inquire as to what’s new and happening at their firm. Times are challenging for everyone, but it’s important to remember: While change and disruption can be scary for many, they can also prove powerful catalysts for growth and innovation. Noting this, it pays to be an optimist, and relentlessly practical here — after all, interviewers are always on the lookout for clever problem-solvers and go-getters who can find ways to turn lemons into lemonade. A can-do attitude and honest concern for others will take you far here, as will finding common topics of interest or shared experiences to build kinship. For example, millions of us have been on an “extended vacation” working from home since last March, [...]
