The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other health-related organizations have recently come out with various new regulations and studies that could potentially help prevent health issues for the majority of the population and especially those who are exposed to every day health risks. Whether at the workplace or walking around town, people are exposed to much more harmful activities than most even know possible. Although it is impossible to prevent every bad thing from happening to you, it is important to be aware of the potential risks and to take the necessary steps to protect yourself.
Everyday activities, like sitting at your office desk, for instance, can prove to be harmful for people’s health. As The Wall Street Journal reported, “A sedentary lifestyle, long believed to contribute to chronic conditions such as heart disease, can increase the risk of colon cancer, according to a stud in the American Journal of Epidemiology.” This is just one of the health risks facing many people both within the United States and throughout the world today. Office work also makes it much more difficult for people to stay active during the day. The FDA is constantly trying to enact reforms that will better protect the population as a whole.Read More at Industry Articles >>
Salary is quite often the determining factor in whether or not an interviewee accepts a job offer. Compensation is also a competing factor for employers who are trying to sway a candidate from accepting an offer at another company. In other instances, many people are often intimidated asking their boss for a raise or a change in benefits, bonuses, or even salary. What can be even more difficult and nerve-racking is negotiating a salary when a candidate first enters the workforce or when they are completely new to an industry. Shefali Anand from The Wall Street Journal states that “although junior-level positions are generally fixed, mid- to senior-level employees and managers have more flexibility to negotiate their salaries.” Even if a person is desperate for work, they should still take the time to confirm they are getting the appropriate payment for the labor they are contributing to the company. The bottom line is, know the worth of both your job and yourself going into any negotiation.Read more at Career Corner >>
With the economy slowly heading toward an upswing, employers are looking at what hiring needs to be done in order to expand their businesses and get back to their pre-recession production and success. During the recession, companies were axing many of their employees, as well as demoting and doubling up on employees’ job responsibilities. The last thing on the minds of many employers during the recession was hiring fresh-out-of-college graduates. 2011 is proving to take a turn for the opposite. As The Wall Street Journal reported, “Three out of four companies plan to hire recent college graduates, a new survey shows, in the latest sign of an improving job market for the Class of 2015.”
Graduate Jobs in the Private Sector
There is still a clear split in the economy between the private and public sectors. The amount of college graduates receiving job offers before graduating has increased since last year. Although this is the case, the public sector is struggling to bounce back, the private sector brings a little more confidence to people, especially college graduates. As Sara Murray of The Wall Street Journal states, “But the job market remains uneven. Most hiring is in the private sector, while openings in the public sector, such as teaching, remain scarce. And the influx of another crop of graduates is making things harder for graduates of recent years…”Read more at Management Matters >>
