June jobs report American healthcare industry is growing fastJune jobs report American healthcare industry is growing fastThe June 2017 jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics came outshowing a big improvement in the number of jobs added in America a whopping 222,0000 last month.What stands out is that 37,000 jobs added in health care just last month has the potential to be promising, especially when you consider a few other trends.The health care industry boomed in JuneThe June 2017 jobs report is one of the many data points showing that healthcare is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the U.S.Ambulatory health care services added 26,000 jobs and hospitals added 12,000 jobs last month. In the first half of this year, the number of health care jobs has gone up 24,000 per month on average. In 2016, the this number was 32,000 jobs on average.Even though healthcare is growing faster, it doesnt necessarily pay better.Mark Hamrick,Washington bureau chief and senior economic ana lyst at Bankrate.com, told Laddersthat the healthcare industry has a wide divergence in salaries.Health care can be a double-edged sword because there are some workers who are highly trained who can command strong wages, and those who are not are paid lower wages. In other words, health care can be a sector of the haves and the have nots when it comes to pay, Hamrick said.He mentioned doctors, nurses, and technicians as examples of positions with higher wages, and home health care aides and certain kinds of therapists as examples of positions with lower wages.DoctorsBut with the aging population, we know the outlook for health care sector employment is about as strong as it is anywhere, Hamrick said.Get medicine, or buy food?Hamrick hits upon an important point The growth of healthcare jobs has a darker source as Baby Boomers age, more people are likely to get sick in the U.S. At the saatkorn time, for everyone, shouldering the costs of healthcarecan be a hefty burden.Research from the the Kaiser Family Foundation, released in March 2017, showed the lengths some have to go to in order to afford care.Three in ten (29 percent) Americans report problems paying medical bills, and these problems come with real consequences for some. For example, among those reporting problems paying medical bills, seven in ten (73 percent) report cutting back spending on food, clothing, or basic household items, the research says, adding, Challenges affording care also result in some Americans saying they have delayed or skipped care due to costs in the past year, including 27 percent who say they have put off or postponed getting health care they needed, 23 percent who say they have skipped a recommended medical test or treatment, and 21 percent who say they have not filled a prescription for a medicine.A fuller picture of June 2017 jobs in the USJust to be clear, there is a margin of error in the number of jobs added the data is based on a household survey and an establishment su rvey, and the datagets revisedtwice more,which can cause big changes. Thats what happened in May, when a promising year suddenly pitched downwardwith one revision.Here are a just few of the other findings from the jobs report.While there were 7 mio people out of work, unemployment was at 4.4%- both numbers that were little changed. The labor force participation rate was 62.8%, which also wasnt a big change for June.A few industries showed growth. The number of social assistance jobs went up by 23,000, mining by 8,000 and financial activities by 17,000. Other gains included a 35,000-job jump in professional and business services last month.But in industries that create tangible things, like retail, manufacturing and construction, among many others,nothing drastic happened in terms of job growth in June. That may be somewhat good news Retail jobswere having a tough time in March.Hamrick told Ladders about the nature of the evolving retail industry.Number one is to ensure a satisfying customer experience. Its worth remembering that there are hundreds of thousands of jobs openings in the retail sector in a given month. The retail sector is experiencing a great verstndigung im strafverfahren of disruption at the moment, in part because of changing consumer buying patterns. But online sales are still a relatively small portion of overall retail sales.He added, I dont know that the retail sector is where you want your college-educated child to work unless theyre an entrepreneur or a manager, or attached to a luxury brand. Being in the front of the house in a retail setting- it may be dependent on a high level of sales. And I think that were gonna continue to see an accelerating pace of change in retailing as we are in the broader economy.Hamrick did not identify a particular sector that job seekers should be flocking to right now because it can depend on peoples skill sets, among other factors.

4 Personal Branding Lies Hurting Your Reputation - The Muse4 Personal Branding Lies Hurting Your ReputationWhen I was a kid I hated pizza. I told myself that it made me sick, a lie I blindly clung to until I was 12 years old. Then I tried a slice and it was, of course, delicious.I was instantly annoyed with myself for getting in my own way for so long.As a personal branding coach, I hear people tell themselves lies all the time. Real whoppers that keep them from where theyre going. Want to make sure youre elend your own worst enemy? Wipe these lies from your brain space1. Im Not the Kind of Person Who Needs a Web PresenceThis is the lie I hear from my clients most frequently. Its usually paired with the mantra Im really kind of a private person or I hate social media. The worst case Ive run into was a super talented woman targeting a digital marketing job- and she was doing it without an active Twitter feed. YikesThe truth You can have an active web presence without baring your soul. If youre in any vein of technology or marketing these days, you have to be active on more than just LinkedIn. But you dont have to be the schrift of person who shares pictures of your lunch or tweets every thought you have to build your brand on the web. You dont even have to churn out lengthy blog posts to start branding yourself as someone whos engaged in an industry.All you have to do is select one to two social platforms that work for you and engage with content thats relevant to your area of expertise. Simple shares and comments every other day or so.Thats it. Crazy simple, right?2. Im Already Branded as Insert Job Title and Its Too Late to Shake Things up NowWhile the thought of rebranding yourself may seem only slight better than a kick to the face, its not impossible. Does it take some strategy? Sure. Can it be time-expensive? Kinda.But rebranding yourself isnt impossible.Ive seen folks make some pretty far-fetched career changes. A museum curator who found her true calling in fundraising and development. An executive turned hypnotherapist. Its never too late to turn your brand on its head, especially if youre feeling frustrated, stuck, or unfulfilled in your current career.Sure, some leaps are easier than others, but in most cases a regular dose of microchange- whether its in the form of volunteer work, side hustles, new certifications, or some shameless authority marketing- can help you flip your brand around in no time. Stop kidding yourself and take steps toward what you love.3. If Its Not Broke, Dont Fix ItLets say youre about to launch a job hunt and you Google yourself to high heaven. You test various spellings of your name, along with different job titles and company names to be safe, and the top 10 results are consistently squeaky clean. No random snapshots from college. Any Yelp reviews youve written arent too snarky. Your LinkedIn profile pops right up. Think your work is done?Think again.While having a web presence thats free of digital dir t is a terrific start, its not enough. If you really want to up your chances of being hired youll want to add some flash and band to your positive search results. Publish articles that demonstrate your subject matter expertise on (free) platforms like LinkedIn Pulse and Medium. Or, pitch yourself as an expert and write a guest blog for a high profile site. Participate in industry activities that up your chances of getting mentioned in the press. Contribute fresh ideas to online discussions and blogs.Not broken and not boring are two different qualities. 4. My Credentials Stand on Their OwnIts easy to get caught up in the me-me-me aspects of your brand. After all, youve put endless hours into leveling up your skills and bagging some amazing achievements. Heres the thing Your degree and the timeline of accomplishments on your resume wont do all the selling for you. Unless you can explain how all of your me-me-me stuff can benefit potential clients or employers, youll have an extremely difficult time creating the traction you want. That, and pitching your value isnt just something you should do in interviews. If youre not hustling a little on a near daily basis, you can consider your brand half-baked. Sure, your brand is made up of your business cards, razor-sharp interview skills, and a string of online branding channels, but its also built on relationships. And in the long run, its relationships that support your career growth. Send thank you notes. Jump in to help without being asked. Wow clients and build others up along with you. Be quick on your feet and use every word and action to reinforce your reputation for value and all-around awesomeness.Its time to face the truth Branding yourself today is a career must and demands a dynamic approach. In fact, the worst personal branding lie you can tell yourself is Ill work on it later. Build and refine that bad boy over time The best personal brands capture who you already are.Photo of bored person courtesy of Ghi slain Marie David de Lossy/Getty Images.

Climb the Ramp to Career SuccessClimb the Ramp to Career SuccessDont wait for your career to advance for you - take control of your career management.The ladder is certainly the most enduring metaphor for career advancement, but nowadays its no longer constructive to think of your career progression as climbing a ladder (sorry, Ladders.com we still love your name). In the ladder metaphor, you ascend one rung at a time, progressing in your career through a series of milestones. At each rung, you work hard on what youre doing at that specific moment. You forget about that next step because youre sure youll get there when the right time comes without encountering any obstacles. You fall into complacency until something happens.Maybe youRealize one day that you feel bored and unchallenged. You know that there must be mora to your job and crave greater fulfillment.Want mora responsibility. You find what you are doing to be routine and know you are capable of a greater challenge.Decide y ou want more pay. After all, if you are going to work 60 or more hours a week, you might as well gain greater compensation for your efforts.Feel an urge to try something new. You know its now or never if youre going to make a change.Realize that youve had your fill of a nasty boss or an uncomfortable organizational culture. Lifes too short to deal with an environment that stomps all over your personal values.Outside your controlYour company decides its time to right-size. We know all too well that mergers and acquisitions, soft markets, shareholder pressure and more make layoffs a common part of todays work world. Even companies that are doing well feel the need to resize from time to time.The product youre working on gets cancelled. Lets face it we live in a disposable economy. Whats hot one day (think of the low-fat diet) is replaced by the latest craze (like eliminating evil simple carbohydrates, for example). Who would have ever thought that IBM would sell their Thinkpad busines s to Lenovo?The industry you work in is hit by a destructive scandal. Think Enron, Arthur Anderson, Airbus, etc.Your manager leaves the company, taking several team members with her, and the company decides to eliminate your job.Only when that something happens do you think about that next rung in your career ladder. You revise your resume, which you probably havent even looked at since you got your current job - months, maybe years ago. You begin to reconnect with lost professional contacts. You expend enormous effort connecting with recruiters, writing cover letters, refining your career marketing materials, searching through job boards - all the fallback methods that people used back when the work world was predictable.Start the steady climbIn todays dynamic knowledge economy, the sporadic, effortful approach to career management discussed above isnt the most effective. Instead, you have to kick over the ladder and start viewing your career climb as a steady ramp. When youre asc ending a ramp, you dont stop and relax - youre constantly advancing in perpetual motion toward your professional goals. In this scenario, you dont wait for one specific trigger to move you to the next step in your career you manage that movement yourself, every day of your life.Consistent steps for successYou update and revise your resume in real time.You maintain networking contacts, rather than letting them fade away.You seek out tasks and activities that will move you closer to your goals.You apply your strengths and unique talents to every task you undertake.You stay connected to the job market, understand your worth and factors that are affecting your job function.These steps ensure that youll always be prepared for any eventuality.Perhaps youre thinking, This sounds like a lot more work than climbing a ladder. Well, in fact, perpetual career management is a lot less work. Thats because youre constantly building momentum.Once you adopt this mindset and make the corresponding b ehaviors part of your regular routine, you never have to make a focused effort to work on your career advancement again. Instead, youre always thinking about it and tweaking it as a matter of course. Its like brushing your teeth in the morning Career management becomes something you just do. As our colleague Wendy Terwelp says, Youre always ready for your next big gig.

AIG Saved by the FedsAIG Saved by the FedsThe deal is a monumental one, putting a private insurance firm into the hands of the government and thus placing U.S. taxpayer dollars on the hook (I dont know about you, but I didnt want to go into the insurance business). The deal sends $85 billion to AIG in the form of a federal loan and hands the U.S. government an approximate 80 percent stake in the insurance company. The deal also sent AIG CEO Robert Willumstad packing (but not empty-handed hell likely pull down an $9 million exit package). Willumstad will be succeeded by Edward Liddy, the former head of fellow insurance giant Allstate(who will now answer to Uncle Sam, AIGs new chairman of the board). The deal followed closely behind the U.S. government deciding not to bailout crumbling investment bank Lehman Brothers, resulting in Lehman filing Chapter 11 (before finding a beige, if not white knight in Barclays, which picked up a good chunk of Lehman yesterday, keeping about 10,000 Leh man-ites employed, for the time being at least). But the Feds decided yesterday that the markets,despite beingable to deal with a Lehman bankruptcy, could not handle an AIG one (some say its collapse would have resulted in $180 billion in lossesacross the financial industry it would have also likely resulted in a massive amount of job losses, not just at AIG but at many other firms certain to be affect in the fallout). Though this wouldve likely been the case, the bailout set a precarious precedent, which is already being hotly debated across the country, including by the two remaining U.S. presidential candidates. Where do you stand? Should the U.S. have stepped and saved AIG in or not? As always, we welcome your comments and thoughts below.
