Sales Jobs in Phoenix Lack Strong Small Business Community
Sales jobs in Phoenix (http://lazboyjobs.com
) are being negatively affected by the lack of a strong local small business community.
The recently-released American Express OPEN Independent Retail Index found that places with a strong small business environment perform better
on a neighborhood, city, and national level. Neighborhoods with strong independent businesses continuously benefit from stronger home values and an even stronger employment marketplace among small companies.
The report looked at 27 neighborhoods in 15 major cities where small businesses have thrived. The results found that home values in those neighborhoods outperformed broader markets by 4 percent each year and by 50 percent overall during the last 14 years. Those markets also supported an average of more than 1,800 jobs at retailers, restaurants, and bars.
"This research validates what we know intuitively - that small businesses are the lifeblood of our communities," Susan Sobbott, president of American Express OPEN, said in a statement. "There is concrete evidence that thriving independent neighborhoods lead to higher real estate values and more local jobs."
Unfortunately, Phoenix was ranked last among the 15 cities in the report. Along with Atlanta, Dallas, Minneapolis, and San Diego, Phoenix consistently ranked below the national benchmark for both retail and eating and drinking establishments.
The 15 cities included in the report were ranked as follows:
- New York
- San Francisco
- Washington, D.C.
- Los Angeles
- San Diego

Non Profit Jobs: Top 10 Myths
Do you know what it takes to get the non profit jobs (http://jobs.heart.org
) available in your community?
Many people have a pre-disposed vision of what it's like to work for a nonprofit organization. Maybe you think that the environment is more laid back, that all the staff members are nice to be around all the time, or that you'll be working with a bunch of volunteers.
However, most of these notions are inaccurate and don't represent what it's actually like to work for a nonprofit. Just like any other company, each nonprofit is different, and every factor of your work environment
can differ from job to job.
According to U.S. News & World Report
, the 10 biggest myths about working in the nonprofit industry include:
- Non-profits are laid back, less professional, and less rigorous.
- Non-profits are mainly staffed by volunteers.
- Caring about money is frowned upon.
- Passion is an important qualification for a nonprofit job.
- Nonprofits are staffed by sunny, caring earth-mother types.
- Nonprofits are run by consensus and have non-hierarchical structures.
- Nonprofits aren't managed well.
- Nonprofits will hire whoever they can find.
- Nonprofit employees have better work-life balance.
- Nonprofit work is centered around service work in communities.
