Grades were in sync with bosses’ communication and management styles. That is, workers who frequently interacted with their bosses ended up rating their performance higher than people who didn’t interact with their supervisor. Read more

successIf you’ve been in a job for only six months and feel like you need to stick it out until at least two years or more, listen up.

According to a new survey conducted by CareerBuilder, staying employed on a job for a short period of time isn’t necessarily game over from an employer’s perspective.

Per the survey, more than half of employers indicated they have hired a job hopper and almost one-third of all employers actually expect workers to hop around.  Read more

working motherAccording to a new survey conducted by CareerBuilder, gender is compared to income, career advancement and job satisfaction. Per results, female breadwinners tend to have a tougher time making ends meet while working moms are happier on the job.

Working dads who are the breadwinner in their household were nearly twice as likely to report holding a professional or technical role. This equates to 57 percent compared to 28 percent of working moms. And working moms who are the sole breadwinners were twice as likely to say they work in an administrative or clerical role to the tune of 52 percent compared to 23 percent of men.  Read more

New Survey Reveals One in Five Workers Want New Job in 2014

judgeIf you’re looking for a new job, you’re not alone. Actually, you’ll be among a pack of job seekers seeking better opportunities this year, thanks to new data from a CareerBuilder survey.

That is, one in five workers revealed they want a new job this year. We must admit, we’re not sure what to make of these numbers — yes, that’s great people feel confident in the market to move on but why are so many people unhappy?  Maybe they’ve been waiting things out in their current job for too long and feel like the time is right to move on?

According to the statistics, only 59 percent of workers indicated they’re satisfied with their jobs. This is a significant drop from last year’s percentage of 66. Digging deeper, people claiming dissatisfaction pointed to salary concerns and not feeling valued as the top two reasons. Read more

New Survey Reveals Majority of Workers Succumb to Cyber Monday Shopping (at Work)

cyber mondayAh, we know the drill.

You’re at work. A click here, a click there, a click everywhere. After all, it’s Cyber Monday and there are steals and deals to be had!

As per a new CareerBuilder survey (via AOL Jobs), 54 percent of employees expect to spend some time today shopping online for the holidays. This is an increase compared to 49 percent from 2012.

We’re not going to get preachy here to say you should wait until lunchtime or a break before you hop online but we will say to watch the clock so a lot of your day isn’t eaten up by online purchases. Your wallet will thank you and also your boss. One out of five workers will apparently spend between one and three hours browsing for deals during the holiday season and 10 percent will spend more than three hours. Read more

CareerBuilder Survey Says Grads’ Majors Don’t Align With Their Jobs

graduation capRemember when you were in college and perhaps stressed about what to study, thinking it was the ultimate big decision in life? Well, according to a new survey by CareerBuilder, the major itself isn’t so important after all.

Almost half of college-educated employees indicated their very first “real job” after college wasn’t related to their major. In comparison, 32 percent of survey participants indicated they never even found a job relating to their major. And for survey respondents older than 35, that number was 31 percent.

The survey was conducted from August through early September by Harris Interactive for approximately 2,100 employees across the country. Now, we’re not saying a college education is irrelevant by any means but typically the experience and skills students gain in school help propel them into a meaningful career. Well, that and a strong network to get a foot in the door even if it’s not relevent to the course of study at the beginning. Read more
