Software Development Ranks As the Most In-Demand Skill for Tech Jobs


New York, NY (PRWEB) December 05, 2013

During the past 90 days, there were more than 232,000 technology jobs that required software development skills in the United States, according to WANTED Analytics™ (http://www.wantedanalytics.com), the leading source of real-time business intelligence for the talent marketplace. Software development was the most in-demand skill for technology jobs in the US, out-pacing other common skills like Java, SQL, and JavaScript. The number of jobs that require this experience increased 3% in the past 90 days compared to the same 90-day period in 2012 and more than 120% from four years ago.

Software Developers aren’t the only occupation to require this skill set. All tech fields commonly require software development skills, including Web Developers, Computer Systems Analysts, IT Project Managers, and Software Quality Assurance Engineers.

Metropolitan areas with the most jobs that required software development in the past 90 days were Seattle, Washington (DC), New York, San Francisco, and San Jose. The Seattle metro area not only experienced the highest demand in the US, but also the largest growth of these five cities. In the past 90 days, there were more than 21,000 jobs for tech professionals with software development skills, a 15% year-over-year increase.

With the growing demand for software development jobs, employers are likely to experience difficulty when recruiting for open positions. The Hiring Scale, which scores jobs from 1 to 99 based on their projected difficulty-to-recruit, scores these jobs at a 76 on average across the US. This means that most Recruiters are likely to experience heavy competition to attract candidates in their local talent pools. Some metropolitan areas that score higher than average on the Hiring Scale are Saginaw (MI), San Francisco (CA), and Baltimore (MD). In these areas, the local talent pools cannot support the demands from employers, making overall recruiting the most difficult.

In comparison, the Hiring Scale also shows the best places to find software development talent. Currently, Santa Rosa-Petaluma (CA), Columbus (GA), and College Station (TX) are the lowest scoring metro areas. In these locations, hiring demand is low, yet the pool of potential candidates is large. This will contribute to less competitive conditions for employers.

The Hiring Scale measures conditions in local job markets by comparing hiring demand and labor supply. The Hiring Scale is part of the WANTED Analytics platform that offers business intelligence for the talent marketplace.

Equifax Advises Students Heading onto the Jobs Market Should Take Care Where They Share Their Personal Details


(PRWEB UK) 25 July 2013

The proliferation of social media has undoubtedly had an impact on how people look for jobs and probably nowhere more so than for students heading onto the jobs market for the first time. Data released earlier in the year* suggested that over the past two years, nearly two thirds of employers (59%) have increased the proportion of vacancies that they advertise on social media platforms such as Facebook and LinkedIn. This is good news for those looking for a new job, but leading ID fraud expert, Equifax, is urging job seekers to take care when posting CVs online and through social media sites.

Job seekers have become increasingly reliant on online recruitment sites to secure employment, explained Neil Munroe, External Affairs Director at Equifax. But people desperately trying to find a new job are also prime targets for fraudsters. Unfortunately, posting CVs online can increase the risk of falling victim to ID fraud and phishing emails.

Young people trying to get onto the jobs ladder could fall into the trap of placing more trust than they should in websites they find and post or provide an enormous amount of personal information online when they upload their CV. There are of course many job recruitment sites that are reputable and secure, but fraudsters are unscrupulous and will use any method to obtain personal information. We are therefore urging job hunters to look closely at the sites they are using to ensure they are legitimate and secure before providing any information.

The Metropolitan Police claims that it takes just 3 pieces of personal information to commit ID fraud. Equifax is, therefore, advising those looking for jobs to be cautious about what information they supply and ensure that they are not revealing too much. Equifax is also warning job seekers not to succumb to phishing emails they might receive asking for information in exchange for possible job interviews.

It is completely understandable that job hunters are going to want to get their CV out to as many potential employers as possible, concluded Neil Munroe. But they really must be careful how much personal information they give away.

To help protect job seekers from becoming victims of ID fraud when trying to find their dream job, Equifax has put together the following tips:

TOP TIPS TO PROTECT PERSONAL DETAILS WHEN APPLYING FOR JOBS ONLINE


Dont give out all your personal information on your CV when posting it online or making it available to others you can always provide more information at a later date

Ensure that the company or individual that has got in contact with you is genuine by carrying out some background checks on them

Check that websites on which you upload personal details have security locks to reduce the risk of them being hacked into

Never send any bank account details until you are totally sure that the job you have been offered is genuine and can transfer money securely

Make sure you have virus protection on your computer, which is regularly updated and a Firewall

The MedZilla.com Employment Report for November, 2012: Affordable Care Act Provides New Approach to Jobs and Medicine


Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 13, 2012

According to experts at the Urban Institute, despite implications that the new Healthcare bill may impede efforts for the nation's financial recovery, the data suggests otherwise. The Urban Institute conducts independent, evidence-based, economic and social policy research, collects data, evaluates social programs, and educates the public on key domestic issues. Researchers there have been studying various business and insurance models to examine the effects of the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) impact on coverage and costs per person on businesses of varying sizes.

Their model demonstrated that the ACA's regulations have only a minor impact on overall employer-sponsored coverage, including total costs. According to the study, "The law leaves large businesses' costs per person insured largely untouched and reduces them for small businesses. Only among mid-size businesses (with 101-1000 employees) would costs per person be noticeably higher, largely attributable to those employers not offering coverage today." (urban.org, 10/5/12) This seems to confirm other insurance models that large businesses have adopted for their employees for many years which utilize the unique coupling of a large insurance pool and the implementation of Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems such as Kaiser Permanente or Group Health Cooperative.

"This particular pairing provides an opportunity for Health Information Technology to bridge the gap between social and economic policy in a way which has far reaching implications of which the medical community has just scratched the surface. In the same way when NASA was able to put a satellite in orbit would have far more uses than merely keeping up with the Russian Space Program, EHR has the potential to revolutionize medical care, research, pharmaceuticals, and much more," says Del Johnston, Manager of Client Relations at MedZilla.com.

In a recent commentary by Eugene Steuerle, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Treasury and former advisor to the National Committee for Vital and Health Statistics, EHR technology could eventually be used to anonymously collect health information on a nationwide scale in order to for scientists to have access to data sets massively larger and more accurate than ever before. This kind of information could allow breakthroughs in understanding statistical trends which currently remain correlative anomalies. In the future, these large data sets being put together with computer statistical modeling software would allow doctors, researchers, pharmacists and other medical personnel to track an incredible amount of lifesaving information right from their examination rooms that they may otherwise be completely unaware of.

For example, regional outbreaks of specific symptoms could easily be attributed to their cause if the data is also available to match patients with a specific pharmaceutical that may need to be recalled, or a new strain of virus and be able to match the vital statistics of the carriers involved to identify the effected and potentially at risk populations within hours instead of weeks. Data can be assessed to find out why certain populations live longer, or do not seem affected by certain diseases such as Alzheimer's, Autism, or Parkinson's. Analysis such as these can take decades and come up with weak correlations because of limited data sets. (urban.org, 9/20/12)

John Burkhardt Managing Director of Medzilla.com cautions, "Right now the EHR technology just isn't standardized at all. So, while the possibilities are pretty exciting, it could be a long wait before this kind of thing could be implemented. Also, obviously, keeping in line with HIPAA, making sure everyone's health information is kept private and secure is always the biggest priority when implementing any new technology. That's also why we need good people in the business, though. There are a lot of exciting job possibilities on the horizon."

Medzilla.com is one of the most notable and essential resources for accessing and finding healthcare, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology employment information on the internet. Their employment experts connect skilled and experienced workers with top industry employers.

Employers Arent Playing Games with Talent: Video Gaming Jobs Are In Demand


New York, NY (PRWEB) September 12, 2012

In August, more than 2,900 jobs were advertised online for video gaming related careers in the United States, according to WANTED Analytics (http://www.wantedanalytics.com), the leading source of real-time business intelligence for the talent marketplace. As gamification grows as a business strategy and systems advance, hiring demand for specialists to develop and promote new games has grown significantly in 2012. The number of job ads increased 60% compared to August of 2011 and is now at all-time high levels.

The most commonly advertised job titles for game developers were Video Gaming User Specialist, Merchandiser Specialist, Video Game Sales Specialist, Video Game Demonstrator, and Game Advisor. Although technology jobs most often require gaming knowledge, other fields that increasingly require this experience included Marketing Managers, Retail Salespersons and Sales Managers, Multi-media Artists and Animators, Market Research Analysts, and Product Demonstrators.

Gaming jobs require many tools, technologies, and skill sets, especially for video game development and programming. Some of the most commonly required skills for these positions include:

1. JavaScript

2. Graphical User Interface Design (UI)

3. Quality Assurance (QA)

4. Software development

5. Product development/management

6. Project management

7. Oracle Java

8. Adobe Photoshop

9. Structured query language

10. Microsoft PowerPoint

Video gaming specialists are most frequently recruited for jobs located in Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, San Jose, and Chicago. While employers in Los Angeles placed the highest number of job ads for this talent pool, one of the highest year-over-year growth areas was actually seen in Chicago where demand grew more than 460% in August 2012 compared to August 2011. The second highest growth was seen in San Jose, up 156% versus last year.

As hiring demand continues, a limited talent supply of potential candidates with gaming experience will create challenges for employers. According to the Hiring Scale, employers across the United States spend an average of 6.5 weeks advertising jobs and sourcing candidates for positions that require video gaming skills. Each location will, however, experience a varying degree of difficulty when sourcing. Companies in Birmingham, Alabama and Nashville, Tennessee are currently experiencing some of the most challenging overall recruiting conditions. Fierce competition has emerged as more employers are looking to fill jobs in these areas than the local talent supply can support.

In comparison, the Hiring Scale also shows the locations experiencing the least difficulties recruiting this talent are Eugene, Oregon and Houston, Texas. Lower hiring demand in these areas, coupled with larger talent supply, means that Recruiters are likely to fill open gaming positions faster than average.

The Hiring Scale measures conditions in local job markets by comparing hiring demand and labor supply. The Hiring Scale is part of the WANTED Analytics platform that offers business intelligence for the talent marketplace.

Social Media Marketing Jobs in US Expected to Explode in 2013 According to New BLS Data


Mobile, Alabama (PRWEB) July 18, 2012

Social media marketing jobs in the USA are expected to surpass levels currently witnessed in 2012 within the next 12 months. New BLS job data has confirmed that a 21 percent increase in social media employment will take place. This represents tens of thousands of new jobs that will open up in 2013. One company that is contracted to hire new social media job applicants is now accepting applications. Paid Social Media Corp, the social placement agency, is actively seeking work-at-home moms, unemployed workers and college students that want the ability to work in a social media position.

Corporations that are hiring new applicants for Facebook and Twitter positions are now using Paid Social Media Corp to staff the open positions. A person interested in these social media marketing jobs can find more information by going here to the company website to apply. The non-stop growth that social media has experienced in the last two years is one of the reasons companies are now seeking freelance and contract employees to manage company social media platforms.

According to the BLS Occupational Handbook 2012, a social media manager with Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn daily posting experience can expect an average annual salary of $ 57,550 or $ 27.67 per hour worked.

Some companies are cutting costs in departments like IT and call center staff to upgrade to new social media departments. The social image that a company gives away online is now just as important as traditional advertising and marketing. Companies are putting more emphasis on jaded customers that can make negative social media posts and videos go viral, said John Newman, Sr. Hiring Manager for Paid Social Media Corp. The PayPal strike and Bank of America debit card fees debacle are just two recent examples of how companies are putting more control into social media campaigns, Newman added. Popular new social media upstarts in 2012 include Pinterest. This new social media platform is slated to double in size by 2013.

States like Las Vegas and California lead the nation in technology jobs but have the highest unemployment levels. Technology companies and entrepreneurs have helped to fuel the private sector economies in many states although manufacturing and service industry jobs have decreased. One of the benefits to working in the social media industry is that college education is not a prerequisite for employment. A person that has average typing skills and that has experience typing posts and attaching videos can be hired as a freelance or contract employee. The social media employee search now underway by Paid Social Media Corp is designed to bring opportunity to unemployed persons or those that prefer to work from a home office.

About Paid Social Media Corp

As a leader in technology employment, Paid Social Media Corp actively recruits talented people around the world that have a desire to work for technology companies. In just three years in business, this leading placement company has hired thousands of employees and placed them in freelance or contract positions with some of the largest names in the technology industry. The growth of tech jobs and the decreasing number of manufacturing and service industry positions is helping Paid Social Media Corp to grow its placement services business. In the first quarter of 2012, a record number of technology companies have signed on to be paired up with employees searching for work in the technology sector.

Wanted: Teens Who Want Jobs Tomorrow


Hawthorne, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012

Savvy students know that even having a college degree may not be enough to land a good job after graduation because the jobs just arent there. The unemployment rate for Americans aged 18-29 is 12.1% and 'unofficial' rates are much higher. More than 50% of recent grads are under or unemployed, according to a recent investigation by the Associated Press. It has been estimated that the U.S. needs to add about 250,000 jobs a month on a regular basis to bring the unemployment rate down to the level experienced prior to the 2007-2009 recession. So some students are taking action. They are building SaveOurWorkforce, an organization with a powerful database to harness consumer buying power and ultimately influence job creation and preservation in the U.S.

Not everyone votes but everyone spends money, explains Ross Mazzolini, a sophomore at Texas Tech University, and a principle founder of SaveOurWorkforce. Money is power and we can have a lot of power if we get organized and act together. SaveOurWorkforce helps people figure out which companies to buy from to best support our country. When companies that employ Americans cut U.S. jobs or shift jobs overseas, their decisions dramatically affect U.S. workers and their families. These companies are not out to hurt Americans; their intention is to lower costs and improve the bottom line. SaveOurWorkforce recognizes that these companies may exercise substantial power, but the resources of the American public are greater because Americans are their customers.

Consumers make choices everyday weighing factors such as quality, price, convenience and company reputation. SaveOurWorkforce is asking consumers to consider an important new factor before making a purchase - the companys commitment to American jobs. Consumers can verify a companys level of commitment by using the SaveOurWorkforce free website tool "Before-You-Buy, VERIFY". The premise of SaveOurWorkforce is that if enough people used their spending power to make the same demand, then ultimately business creating more U.S. jobs would become more profitable. Companies would be motivated to save U.S. jobs.

SaveOurWorkforce is recruiting students who are interested in developing valuable research, communication and career skills. The database was launched in June, 2012 with information about 100 large corporations. Students are needed to maintain and feed the SaveOurWorkforce database. Plans are to add about 40 companies a month. Im asking other college students and high school kids to form SaveOurWorkforce clubs, says Ross. We can show you how to get started and youll find out that its not hard to be part of something important. We even have a good time while we are doing something about our own future.

About SaveOurWorkforce:

Founded in 2012 by California teenagers Austin Mazzolini and his brother Ross, the mission of SaveOurWorkforce is to save and rebuild the U.S. workforce. The organization encourages the involvement of teenagers, companies and individuals throughout the country. Teens are asked to join or start campus clubs. Companies that join must pledge that they understand how important jobs are to families and the health of our nation and that they will do everything possible to keep jobs in America. Individuals are encouraged to try the Before-You-Buy, VERIFY free website tool at http://www.SaveOurWorkforce.org.
