5 Reasons America's Job Engine is Broken

Last week, I had a heart-to-heart talk with a group of our CAREEREALISM TV viewers about America's job engine and why it's broken. In this discussion, I explained in detail: 1. How events in the last 30 years have changed the employment process and caused unemployment rates to stay higher longer. 2. What the term "jobless recovery" means and how it directly impacts your ability to get hired. 3. Why it takes so long for companies to hire today and why they seem to have adopted a "hurry up and wait" approach to hiring. 4. Why more than 50% of Americans in the future will be temporary workers! 5. Why if you don't change the way you look at your career and job search, you can expect to be unemployed more frequently and for longer periods of time. Want to see this episode?

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.

There are LOTS of questions around resume dos and don'ts. There's so much advice out there that it can be overwhelming to try and figure out what's the correct answer.

During our weekly live Office Hours on YouTube, two of our coaches, Ariella Coombs and J.T. O'Donnell, answer questions live from viewers related to their job search, career success, on the job situations and more.
