Does Your Resume Accurately Reflect YOU?

Due to the frequency of applicants lying or "stretching" the truth on their resumes, employers have come to rely heavily on background checks to make hiring decisions. According to recent statistics, around 80 percent of employers conduct some sort of investigation the lives of those they believe to be qualified for jobs. If businesses are worried about hiring the wrong person for the job, it is nothing compared to the nervousness that hopeful job seekers may feel.

In order to avoid being disqualified for a job due to the results of a background check, applicants should make sure that their resumes accurately reflect their work experience. Although few would purposely outright lie, such as claim to have degrees they do no posses or say they worked for a company that has never heard of them, smaller discrepancies can cause problems. Everyone wants to present their prior work in the best light possible.

Because of this, many include tasks they may have only performed once or twice under past job descriptions. Unless a previous employer is likely to remember these occasions, it is best not to include them. To avoid any problems during a background check one should either stick to describing tasks that were either included in their job description. Despite this, one shouldn't shy away from listing additional responsibilities that were later added to their work load, as long as a previous employer is not likely to discredit this information.

In many cases offices often hire new workers with the understanding that their continual employment is determined by the results of a background check. In these situations, or whenever one is particularly nervous as to what such a search might yield, it is never a bad idea to conduct one's own investigation.

This could be as simple as going to the appropriate public office to make sure there are no inaccuracies in a criminal record or as involved as contacting a company which handles records verifications. Although such companies will cost the applicant, there is no value that can be put on having the piece of mind that comes with knowing there are no unknown skeletons hiding in a closet, awaiting the chance to ruin a good opportunity.

Nursing Jobs in Las Vegas

As the life expectancy of the general population continues to increase, the healthcare industry has to grow, at least in number of employees, in order to accommodate the larger work load. Because of this, nurses are in such high demand that many hospitals are unable to keep enough on staff, particularly in cities such as Las Vegas.

Between the size of the population and the fact that the area does not have enough residents who are properly trained, nursing jobs in Las Vegas exist in abundance. According to the US Department of Labor Bureau's statistics, registered nurse is the largest healthcare occupation. Approximately 2.5 million jobs exist throughout the country, 59 percent of which are in hospitals. The remainder of these nursing jobs are located between private practices, nursing homes, and other care facilities.

It is believed that registered nurses are projected to generate about 587,00 new jobs between 2006 and 2016, which is a 23 percent increase, making it one of the fastest growing careers in the country. Those searching for nursing jobs will be happy to know overall job opportunities in Las Vegas are expected to be excellent. As the country is forced to face a shortage of qualified nurses, salaries will rise as hospitals compete to attracted the best employees possible.

Due to the low numbers of nurses in the area, Las Vegas hospitals are having to look elsewhere for new employees. Internet recruitment for this career continues to grow as the city tries to avoid being hit hard by the expected nursing shortage. Because of increasing salaries and the number of available positions, areas like Las Vegas and parts of California are considered some of the best for those searching for nursing jobs to relocate to.

Salaries will continue to be effected by the level of education the individual in question has. Different specialties require different degrees, but jobs exist for everyone from those with nursing diplomas to those with graduate degrees.



Miami and a Declining Economy in 2008

The unemployment rate in Miami-Dade county fell slightly in November, despite the fact that the state’s average rose. The city’s jobless rate went from 4.3 percent in October to 3.7 percent in November, due, at least in part, to the creation of seasonal jobs. Although the month to month data shows improvement, more individuals were unable to find jobs in Miami than in 2006 when the unemployment rate was 3.5 percent. Statewide 4.3 percent of the population was without work.

For the year 2007 Miami lead the state in employment gains. Of the 90,200 jobs created in Florida, approximately 26,400 of them were in Miami. Florida construction continued to be affected by the housing market, losing 24,100 jobs and making 2007 the first year since 1992 that the state had nine consecutive months of decline in construction employment. Other sectors losing jobs included manufacturing and information.

Although there may be more jobs in Miami than can be found in other parts of the state, the local job market may be more competitive than usual. With economist saying that the state has a 60 percent chance of falling into a recession in 2007, many employers may scale back hiring in hopes of avoiding a loss of profit. In some cases, layoffs maybe necessary. If this does occur, Miami is expected to continue to fair better than most other cities. The city that is expected to fair the worst is Tampa, which made the list of the countries ten cities most prone to recession.

For unknown reasons over a hundred jobs in Miami will soon be done away with. Airport Parking Associates plan to layoff 104 individuals at the Miami International Airport’s Flamingo Garage, according to a state filing. Both APA and MIA spokespersons were unable to be reached for comments on loss of these Miami jobs or how this would effect the airport.

Despite recent airport layoffs, tourism is obviously doing well in Florida, because the sector added 24,500 jobs. Tourism and hospitality combined with education and health services accounted for 60 percent of the state’s job creation.

Outlook for Finding Indianapolis Jobs

Despite experiencing a recent rise in the unemployment rate, Indiana continues to have the lowest number of jobless residents in the Midwest region. In November the percent of the population not working rose from 4.6 percent to 4.7 percent, which is also the national average. At this time there are 150,848 unemployed residents in the state, which is 5,000 less than November of last year.

With 158 different companies committing to create new jobs in the Indianapolis area, there is little concern about the small increase in unemployment. Altogether the state is expecting more than 22,600 new positions, some which will be in Indianapolis. This increase in jobs will break the states previous commitment record set just a year ago.

One company planning on creating new Indianapolis jobs is Arcadia Healthcare. Arcadia's president and chief executive officer, Marvin R. Richardson, announced in October that he planned on relocating the company's headquarters from Detroit to Indianapolis. Richardson said this choice was easy to make due to the pro business environment created by Governor Daniels, two pharmacy schools to support their growth and strong support from the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, which is the state's premier economic development organization. Arcadia will bring with it 315 new Indianapolis jobs.

Also planning new job creation in the area is the company Veolia Water. Veolia currently provides water service to their approximately 1.1 million customers, all of which are located in central Indiana. Veolia plans on creating 95 new Indianapolis jobs in the recent future.

In response to the news of new jobs creation Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar said that the state “is strongly outperforming its Midwest neighbors in attracting the high-paying, high-skilled jobs of today and tomorrow.”

He went on to say that “Indiana's status will only improve if local government efficient recommendations and meaningful property tax reform for all Hoosiers are enacted as part of the upcoming legislative session. Reduced spending and increased accountability, combined with more effective delivery of services, will be a winning formula to complement the state's recent successes.”

Many of the companies that have already committed to the creation of new jobs throughout the state have already began hiring. All of the businesses plan to reach their job creation commitment by 2012. The average hourly wage expected for these new positions is $20.56. Currently the state's average resident makes $18 an hour.
