    Want to Love Your Job?

    in Work

    Nearly 53% of employees in America today say that they are unsatisfied with their jobs. Only 15% of workers actually report that they are “very satisfied with their work. So why are they not passionate about what they do and what can we do about it?


    Somehow people are having a hard time finding a way to bring passion to their jobs. Especially the older workers are experiencing the largest drop in job satisfaction over the last 25 years. In the 1980’s, nearly 70% of workers age 65 or older were happy at work. In today’s surveys job satisfaction in this age group has dropped down to only 46% of workers.


    The primary issue seems to be the lack of control that people feel in their lives now. They don’t feel they have a lot of autonomy in what they do on a day to day basis. They don’t feel that what they say has much impact at work, and many times they don’t feel they can be themselves at work.

    Reset Your Future and Your Job after 50.

    in Work

    A growing number of people age 50 and older don't look forward to retiring anymore. They don't want the seclusion of sitting at home, and they have the energy and vitality to continue to work for many more years than their parents ever did.


    Rethinking life after age 50 is becoming a common conversation. This is the first generation whose retirement years could well out-last their working years. Baby Boomers are coming to the conclusion that they need to plan for more in the way of work , but often with more purpose for the second half.

But with Linked In, you have the opportunity to network with much larger numbers of people in much larger ways.


    Whether it is reconnecting and keeping in touch with past college classmates, friends, acquaintances, or family, whether it is past co-workers (and those you have lost touch with), or past managers too—Linked In will give you the capability to do that.

    Women and Doing It All

    in Women

    Our ideas of motherhood have changed profoundly throughout American history. In the colonial times, fathers were in charge of everything. Mothers were child-bearers and laborers. During the Industrial Revolution men went out to work and mothers stayed home to nurture, sew, cook, and make the home for the family.


    Now in 2014, add to it that 40 % of women in America are the primary breadwinner of the family, the "To-Do" lists keep getting longer. Doing it all now means caring for every child's needs, time, emotional, sports, homework, school, PTA, physical, spiritual, discipline, morality and money. 


    Can we really talk about Job Creation and the War on Poverty without tackling the issue of flexible working arrangement for women and caregivers? The US is lagging behind other countries when it comes to work-life balance and legislating work policy. Join Flex Hour Jobs as we discuss where we need to start to help women do it all.

    Perfecting the 2014 Job Search

    in Work

    The outlook for the 2014 economy and jobs is positive. The national rate of unemployment is at a record low now of only 7%. Whether that is really that the unemployed have given up, that people are taking jobs with less income than before, or whatever may be the case, still it’s good to believe that the New Year will be better than the last few.


    So during this slow time of hiring during the holidays, it’s a terrific time to do some self- assessment and plan your direction for the 2014 Job hunt. One good idea is to spend some time asking yourself who it is that you really are, what it is that you want from a job, where you are right now on that path, and where your interests lie. 


    Join Flex Hour Jobs as we discuss what you can do in the down time of the holidays to prepare for the upcoming 2014 Job Search.

    Finding a Job that meets your needs as a Mom and a Woman, can be challenging. The US is the only industrialized country without any requirement that employers provide Family Leave, or  Flexible Hours. 
    When the reality is that 40% of children are now born to unmarried women, it has made combining work and family virtually impossible. Luckily there are many companies who do hire virtual workers at professional salaries. "Work from Anywhere Jobs" are on the rise and we value those employers who hire for them.
