While we continue to trudge through this economy, analysts, experts and anyone with a microphone are quick to predict the future. Things will be better in this quarter or when that happens. Hopefully anyone predicting a rosy future is right, but right now we need something concrete to judge the situation.
A recent CareerBuilder survey looked at the success rates of previously laid-off workers who have since found work. The survey found that 51 percent of workers who were laid off in the last three months have found either part-time or full-time jobs. When the previous survey was conducted in November 2009, that figure was 44 percent. Although we’d all like to see every job seeker land a job as quickly as possible, at least the figure is rising.
The pay situation was less attractive. Although nearly 40 percent of these workers were able to negotiate salaries that were higher than or equivalent to their previous income, 61 percent took a pay cut.
The survey did find some trends emerging among laid-off workers.
- 57 percent of workers who were laid off in the last six months were re-hired by the very employers how laid them off.
- Of job seekers who were laid off in the last six months and who haven’t found jobs, 71 percent would accept an offer from the employer who laid them off.
- Of workers who were laid off in the last six months and landed new jobs, 64 percent found work in a field different than where they were previously employed.
- 55 percent of these workers say they really enjoy their new positions. Good news!
- 46 percent of workers who were laid off in the previous six months and found jobs relocated.
- Of those who relocated and found work, 93 percent moved to a new city (not a new state).
- Of those workers who were laid off in the previous six months and are still looking for employment, 42 percent are willing to relocate for a job.
You can read about other trends the survey discovered here.
As I said, a bigger number of laid-off workers who found jobs would be ideal. (Or no layoffs at all, of course.) However, at least we can look at what’s happening right now for evidence that the situation has bright spots.
Tell us about your take on the results. If you’re employed or have been recently, do you think relocation is the way to go? Is transferring skills a necessity in this economy?

As we’ve mentioned before, co-workers play important roles on your workplace experience. They, at the very least, can annoy you. They can make life better (or at least more romantic). And they can just be weird.
According to Linnda Durré, Ph.D., co-workers can also be toxic. She doesn’t mean they get on your nerves, but they actually cause you harm on some level. As the author of “Surviving the Toxic Workplace: Protect Yourself Against the Co-workers, Bosses and Work Environments That Poison Your Day,” she knows a thing or two about identifying harmful associates. Luckily, she has advice that doesn’t just help you identify problems but that also teaches you how to address the issues. Today’s guest blogging duties come from Durré herself.
Here are 10 toxic co-workers and how to deal with them, according to Durré.
1. VIC THE VIOLENT ONE
Vic the Violent One is a genuine threat. Do not approach Vic directly. Document every transgression with date, time and place. Some people use their cell phone cameras, video cams and/or audio tape recorders to record his outrages. Report Vic to HR. Security may have to be called. Some people carry Mace or a taser for protect against Vic. If HR doesn’t take action, ask for a transfer to a different department, see if you can work from home and/or go to EEOC, the media, or the union or get an attorney and sue. Protect yourself. You and others can file a law suit and allege a hostile work environment.
2. ANDY THE ALCOHOLIC/DRUG ADDICT
Andy the Alcoholic/Drug Addict is dangerous, and if he is a driver for the company, he can cause fatalities. His behavior is a cry for help, even though he is in denial. Report him to HR and your boss to take action, like ordering him to a 30-90 day de-tox/rehab, hopefully covered by insurance. If HR won’t do anything, bond with co-workers, Andy’s friends and family and hire a qualified interventionist for a group confrontation about his addiction (my website has a list of interventionists around the country). Talk with Andy privately, take him to an AA, CA and/or NA 12 Step Meeting because Andy has to “hit bottom” and/or have “a moment of clarity,” to recognize his addiction is killing him if he doesn’t stop. He’ll thank you for saving his life when he gets sober.
3. STAN THE STALKER
If Stan the Stalker is a spurned lover, he may stalk you. If his ex was your co-worker, he may hound you for information. Either way, be careful. He may seek revenge and he can possibly do you physical harm, kidnap, or even murder you. He may be delusional and suffer from erotomania – the “relationship” may be in his mind. He may need medication. Go to HR and your boss and tell them immediately. Set limits, tell him his behavior is inappropriate, and if he doesn’t stop, you may need a restraining order and police protection. Move to another department, take another job, work from home, or move to another state. Carry pepper spray or get a taser if he threatens you.
4. SID THE SEXUAL HARASSER
Sid the Sexual Harasser doesn’t understand “no.” Set limits, be firm, clear and yell if you must, making sure you have witnesses, proof and evidence when you report him to HR and/or your boss. Tell him that what he is doing is illegal, unethical and immoral and it must stop now! If the company doesn’t take action, they can be sued for allowing a hostile work environment to be created. Be assertive – the law is on your side.
5. SAM THE SMILING COBRA
Sam the Smiling Cobra smiles while he sets you up and stabs you in the back. Cover yourself, document everything with e-mails, phone logs and letters, cc’ing them to your boss and the HR department. Keep a file locked with a complete copy in your bank’s safety deposit box. Ask for a transfer to another department, work from home, or go to a different company. San may be a psychopath/sociopath who wouldn’t think twice about ruining you or having someone – including you – killed if they got in his way. Read Snakes in Suits.
6. GRETA THE GOSSIP
Greta the Gossip is a vicious rumor mill. Set boundaries and limits clearly and assertively. Inform her you know she spread the falseties. Go to HR and file a formal complaint. Confront her directly with them present. Insist they discipline her, require an apology letter, cc’ing it to the department. If HR refuses, send an e-mail to your co-workers refuting any malicious rumors, stating you confronted her and she has not apologized to you or anyone via an e-mail about her vicious rumors, as you requested when you went to HR, who did not handle the matter. Set the record straight and protect yourself.
7. PAUL THE POLITICALLY INCORRECT
Paul is either a deliberate bigot/ racist/sexist /homophobe or totally clueless like Michael Scott on “The Office.” He may be violating federal and state laws as well as company policy by creating a hostile work environment, so document everything and always cc it to your boss, the HR department and co-workers. Make a tape of your office and cell phone messages from him and print out his e-mails to you. Make copies and keep all evidence in a safety deposit in your bank in case of a law suit. Bring Paul to HR and tell Paul directly that his insensitive remarks interfere in your work, offend people and need to stop. Ask HR to order Paul to a refresher course in diversity training.
8. THOMAS THE THIEF
Thomas can steal your ideas, take credit for your work and/or take items from your desk, wallet and purse. Change your computer and cell phone passwords daily, close and lock your desk and carry your purse and valuables to the bathroom. Use your camera to document when you find your things in his possession. Call him out in a meeting that he took your idea. Whether you have proof or not, confront Thomas so he knows you’re onto his game. Be firm, clear and direct with him because he’s in denial and he has an addiction. Report him to HR, even if you have no proof. Ask co-workers to be witnesses for you.
9. GORDON THE GRINCH
Gordon the Grinch is negative, pessimistic and insulting. Set limits, confront him and say, “Gordon, I appreciate that you are a dependable worker here, and I know you don’t like your job, but I do. I’d prefer you keep your negative comments to yourself and let me work in peace. Perhaps the free counseling sessions at EAP – Employee Assistance Program – might lift your black cloud. ” Unless he has a near death experience and realizes how precious life is, Gordon won’t change. Ask HR to speak to him, move away from Gordon, transfer to another department, work from home, start your own business, or work for another company. If not, wear ear plugs, play music through ear buds. Protect yourself from Gordon’s negativity.
10. PAM THE PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE
Pam is passive-aggressive—she does nasty, aggressive acts in a passive manner. Pam “forgets” to tell about the urgent call or that your overnight delivery has been sitting on her desk for hours. Confront Pam that you’re onto her game because she thinks you don’t know. Tell her to communicate honestly and openly rather than sabotage you. Allow her to be assertive, which may be scary for her, given her programming that “anger” isn’t “nice.” Pam needs assertiveness training workshops, to listen to self-help CD’s and read as many books about it as possible. If she takes your advice, she will be incredibly grateful to you for freeing her from her own emotional prison.

While we are not out of the woods yet, President Obama was cautiously optimistic in a recent radio address. “Even as we have come a long way, we still have a ways to go,” Obama said. “No matter what the economic statistics say, I won’t be satisfied until folks who need work can find good jobs. After a recession that stole 8 million jobs, this is going take some time.”
Considering some of the most recent indicators that the economy and employment are improving, one can’t help but be hopeful:
- For the third consecutive quarter, more employers are projecting they will increase headcount in the next three months while fewer employers are expecting staff cuts, according to CareerBuilder’s Q2 2010 Job Forecast. Twenty-three percent of employers plan to add full-time, permanent headcount in the second quarter while 8 percent plan to downsize staffs. Looking at actual hiring for the second quarter in 2009, 18 percent of employers reported they had hired full-time, permanent staff while 17 percent reported they had decreased staff.
- In its April 2010 Industry Survey, the National Association of Business Economics increased job creation for the first time in two years. The share of respondents expecting their firms to add employees over the coming six months rose to 37 percent, up from 29 percent in January’s survey. The percentage of firms cutting jobs moved lower — from 28 percent in January to 13 percent in April. “After more than two years of job losses, job creation increased in the first quarter of 2010, suggesting a better outlook for hiring over the next six months,” said William Strauss, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
- In April, Moody’s Economy.com reported that, “based on data through February, 205 metro areas nationwide appear to be in recovery, 21 more than in January. By population size, the largest metro areas to move into recovery over the month (January – February) were Santa Ana, Calif., Nassau N.Y. and San Jose, Calif. Smaller metro areas are more likely to be in recovery at this point than larger ones; although more than half of all U.S. metro areas appear to be recovering, they represent only 41 percent of total metropolitan gross domestic product.”
- This map from DismalScientist.com shows states that are moderating and recovering from the recession.
Unfortunately, it’s not expected to be smooth sailing when we come out on the other side of the recession. As difficult as it may be to believe given today’s still shaky employment situation, economists are projecting a labor shortage in the near future.
“By 2018, with no change in current labor force participation rates or immigration rates and an expected return to healthy economic growth, we will have more jobs than people to fill them,” wrote Barry Bluestone, Dean of the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs at Northeastern University, and Mark Melnik, Deputy Director for Research at the Boston Redevelopment Authority in their report “After the Recovery: Help Needed.”
The report, which was sponsored by MetLife Foundation and Civic Ventures, a think tank on boomers, work and social purpose, predicts that within the next eight years there could be at least 5 million potential job vacancies in the United States, nearly half of them (2.4 million) in social sector jobs in education, health care, government and nonprofit organizations, assuming a return to healthy economic growth and no change in immigration or labor force participation rates.
The report identified 15 jobs that will provide the largest number of potential new encore career opportunities in the coming decade.

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, we (your faithful Work Buzz crew) realize you (our dear readers) come to the blog for a variety of reasons. One of those reasons is the desire to find a new job. We do our best to point you in the right direction with our monthly hiring lists. However, as you know it’s a big country and it’s tough to hit all the markets every time.
We also know that job hunting takes up a lot of time and we want to make your quest as easy as possible. Starting today we’ll be trying a new weekly feature: job opportunities by region. Each week we’ll focus on a different area of the country and list some employers who are hiring in each of those states.
For the sake of simplicity, we’re dividing the country into four regions: Midwest, Northeast, South and West. (I’ve seen as many as eight regional divisions, but that just seems excessive.) Today we’ll start with the Midwest and work our way clockwise week by week.
You can click on the state to see a list of its job opportunities, on the company name to view all of its openings, regardless of location, and you can click on the job title to go directly to that opening. Also, we try to present a diverse group of opportunities, so we highlight jobs for various industries and educational levels.
Without further ado, here are your Midwestern job opportunities:

Two excellent blogs (Lifehacker and Boing Boing) I often read posted this video clip of Jason Fried, the co-founder of 37signals. On the surface it’s a pretty lame starting point for a blog post, I admit–a guy talks into a camera for six minutes.
However, the video’s worth watching because Fried suggests that IM, e-mail and other virtual communication benefit workers more than traditional face-to-face conversations. You’ve undoubtedly heard people — employees, boss and workplace experts — criticize today’s technology-driven workplace for a lack of personal interaction. The problem, these critics explain, is that no one walks the ten feet to knock on someone’s office door or even rolls their chair across the aisle to chat with their cube neighbor. Not only are we supposedly lazy, but we don’t know how to interact with people anymore. We’re used to pressing buttons and typing texts, not making eye contact and holding conversations.
Fair points, and they express a viewpoint that many, many people agree with. However, Fried offers a counterpoint. In his opinion, relying on technology allows people to respond to messages when it is convenient for them. For example, if your colleague has a question but it’s not urgent, rather than interrupt you, she can send an e-mail that you can reply to at your convenience. No interrupting your current task or breaking your concentration. Seems logical to me.
So watch Fried’s clip and tell us whether or not you agree with him. Have you worked in environments where technology was the preferred and more effective form of communication? Did you work for a company where in-person conversation was the only acceptable way to get things done? Let us know.

Between May and June, on college campuses throughout the country, you can sense a level of excitement that is usually reserved for $1 beer night or when parents finally drive away after a weekend visit. That excitement comes from graduation and the fact that students (at least for a few months) are done with exams, papers, lectures and studying. Perhaps forever or at least until grad school, these students are rid of the pesky academic portion of college and can now embrace the freedom of adulthood, also referred to as the Real World.
Because life is cruel, reality sometimes smacks students across the face with the reality that freedom, glorious freedom is filled with annoyances. Namely, the competition to land a job after graduation. Some students have jobs lined up during their senior year so graduation is one last stop before getting bigger, better paychecks. However, many students are faced with a competitive job market. They’ve spent years learning their crafts and now they have a diploma — they just need the paycheck. Who’s going to hire them?
According to a recent CareerBuilder survey, 44 percent of employers intend to hire recent college graduates. Last year the 43 percent of employers said the same thing, so at least the number didn’t decrease. However, just a few years ago in 2007, a record high of 79 percent of employers said so.
That said, of the employers who will be hiring new graduates, 21 percent intend to hire more students than they did last year. Plus, 16 percent will offer higher starting salaries than they did in 2009. This year’s grads will definitely compete for jobs in a way that previous classes didn’t, but employers are at least approaching the hiring season with more attractive intentions than they did last year.
Speaking of salary, money matters. Doesn’t it always? Here’s what employers have said about salaries:
- 33 percent will offer less than $30,000
- 30 percent will offer salaries between $30,000 and $40,000
- 19 percent will offer salaries between $40,000 and $50,000
If you’re a recent graduate, you’re probably wondering what will help you land the job. Luckily, the survey asked such questions. According to employers, these items count as relevant work experience you should list on your résumé, ranked by popularity:
- Internships — 62 percent
- Part-time jobs in another area or field — 50 percent
- Volunteer work — 40 percent
- Class work — 31 percent
- Involvement in school organizations — 23 percent
- Involvement in managing activities for sororities and fraternities — 21 percent
- Participation in sports — 13 percent
As you’ll discover through most of your career, employers consider experience one of the leading qualifications for a job, they also look at a variety of factors. Employers cited the following qualities as important factors in hiring an employee:
- Good fit with company culture
- Comes in with good ideas and asks good questions
- Educational background
- Level of enthusiasm
- Comes to interview prepared, is knowledgeable about company
And according to NACE, the National Associate of Colleges and Employers, for the first time in this academic year, college hiring is up. The bottom line? Celebrate, graduates! You’ve worked hard AND your chances of landing a job are better than they’ve been for years.

On Wednesday, I wrote a post about everyone’s favorite time of year: tax season.
Today, I bring you a guest blog about tax tips for freelancers. Joseph D’Agnese & Denise Kiernan, authors of “The Money Book for Freelancers, Part-Timers, and the Self-Employed,” tell freelancers that they can have a stress-free tax season (now and in the future). Really! Here’s how:
Top Tax Tips for Freelancers
April 15 sends shivers down the spine of most every American. But for freelancers, tax time can be particularly maddening. While most traditionally employed workers have taxes taken out of their pay automatically, freelancers do not. To be successful — and preserve not only financial health, but sanity as well — independent workers have to learn to look at their income in a whole new way. Here are some tips for freelancers to follow year-round that will make tax season feel like a spring breeze, rather than a cold blast of reality.
1. Mark your calendar
Don’t wait until April to start thinking about your taxes. Independent workers are responsible for paying estimated taxes, as well. These are due June 15, September 15, January 15 and of course, April 15. But remember: April 15 is a double whammy. You a responsible for paying not only the annual taxes for the prior year, but the first installment of estimated taxes for the current year as well.
2. Get organized
Even if you are a company of one, you are a business. That means organizing your finances as any responsible business would. If you are not already, begin tracking income and expenses down to the penny. Receipts are your friend—never let them slip away. Financial software programs — such as Quicken or mint.com — can take some of the pain out of this chore and help make tax time a cinch.
3. Commit yourself
Treat yourself the way a good employer would treat you. A good employer takes a percentage out of your paycheck to send along to Uncle Sam. You have to do the same. Commit today to taking a percentage out of each and every check that comes in the door and setting it aside in a Tax Savings Account (see below). Not sure how much to take out? Look at your previous years’ tax returns (state, federal and city, if applicable). Take the tax you paid each year and divide it by that year’s gross income. Then multiply that number by 100. This will give you a ballpark percentage that you can start taking out of each check. This is number varies wildly from freelancer to freelancer, so mind your own business — not someone else’s.
3. Stay on track
Making more this year than in years past? Less? Then the amount you’re setting aside for taxes might need to be adjusted. On a quarterly basis — when you pay your estimated taxes, for example — take a look at what you’ve earned so far and decide whether or not to adjust your percentages accordingly. The more regularly you do this, the better you will get at this kind of on-the-fly financial housekeeping. And it’s an excellent idea to…
4. Get help
If you haven’t done so already, get a tax guru who can advise you year-round on deductions, estimated taxes, retirement savings and the like. Retirement plans such as a Simplified Employee Pension Individual Retirement Account (SEP-IRA) can reduce your taxable income. So seeking the quarterly counsel of a tax pro is worth every penny (and not as expensive as you think). Send them your quarterly earnings and they should be able to advise you about how much estimated tax to pay and how much to invest for retirement.
5. Divide and conquer
Don’t allow money destined for the Tax Man to mingle freely with money waiting to be taken out on the town. If you don’t want your tax bucks to end up spent on a beer tab, you must set them aside in what we call the dedicated Tax Savings Account. We recommend using an online bank with limited — or better yet, no — ATM access. That way the money goes in and stays in until it’s time to pay up.
ABA: Always be analyzing. Yes, we know it is tough enough to land paying gigs, but you need to be just as nimble to pounce on that money when it comes in the door. Set some aside for yourself, for your future, and for the Tax Man. And cultivate a quarterly habit of taking stock of where you are financially. If you do this, April will be a time to celebrate your financial savvy, not scramble to scrounge for what’s due. Don’t you owe it to yourself and your future?

To cut to the chase, you want a job. If you’re unemployed, you’d like to be employed. If you’re employed but unhappy or feel your career is at a standstill, you wouldn’t mind changing things up.
