Good morning everybody -- Lawrence in many thanks for joining us for getting on the chat we're talking today.
I get a job and keep the job -- -- -- a -- had to find part time work had to make friends with your coworkers all of that because it's career accelerator Tuesday.
Allowing kick things off with doctor woody who joins us every Tuesday.
And know what the things we found out on Friday which is one of the reasons let's stock market is doing so well is that we had kind of mixed jobs report the headline number good a 163000.
Positions created in the month of July and the unemployment rate rose to eight point 3% today have -- the national unemployment rate in this country.
Is eight point 3% but.
That masks a lot of people who are marginally attached to the workforce the -- real unemployment rate is 15%.
Closer to -- six from every got to add in there's about two and a half million folks out there who.
Like -- that are marginally attached or they are.
Discouraged workers they want to find work but they've given up then you've got the nearly thirteen million people who -- just out of work and.
On -- and 40% of those folks have been out of work for longer than 27 weeks of their considered long term unemployed -- nearly half that group.
We really got to look at because that's because the longer out of work harder it is now at hot hand right then on top of that.
We've got eight point two million folks out there who -- will be consider involuntarily.
So in other words they're doing part time work but they want full time work.
Now there's a good the bad to this number.
-- the good side of it is they found a way back in.
The challenge is now honestly I would -- -- with his growing that number if we can take those two and a half million discouraged folks.
And -- them at least have a part time side right or is better than not that something's better than nothing or even though the nearly thirteen million out there were unemployed like -- -- nearly half which.
Have been out for a long time so I think we need to figure out ways.
To start moving them.
To the ranks of the part timer involuntarily part time are employed because of the fact that can act as both the stop -- measure.
And in some ways it could be a foot into the -- something different.
Well said exactly so what are some tips some industries what are some things that people should consider they're looking to evening -- just part time work because something right -- -- up.
Certainly I'd open this week and I had my crack team they do some research for me.
And we what I wanted to do was -- what are some opportunities out there that are kind of across the board and and I think there -- some really interesting ones and again it always comes back to.
You have to step back in the open minded and need to look back -- that too much you -- figure out.
What am -- not accessing your -- -- -- utilizing what strengths and an up pushing a paso.
I'm doing that here at least five areas to think about they're -- about my column this week on fox does not come.
The first one is online teaching.
I'm not talking about colleges universities but we've got Community Colleges we have vocational programs.
Doesn't have professional associations and corporate training programs who are now all moving.
To doing stuff online and see if you have a particular set of skills.
Maybe even certifications or experience is that would lend itself -- present -- and older worker out there.
To teaching some of the younger new people getting out there there might be opportunities there.
That's a really good point it is -- a lot of older Americans.
Our veterans in their industry and they -- and then let go because of cost cutting they make too much money time to save money let them let the old good guys go to make the big buzz.
They have that valuable skill set that they can teach because -- years of experience not -- -- -- it stands right.
They industry recently that can be done from home -- -- -- for the most part.
There may not require any kind of certifications or qualifications it really just depends.
But look into your professional world your association or your trade group.
Yes and figure out if there are training needs or -- insert yourself for me even just.
Teaching a class course once a week -- first semester on line.
Could help at some money into the -- what else did you crack staff find out -- -- -- another great area is tutoring them.
And tutoring runs the gamut from elementary school ten entrance exams and so even if you're someone who.
Maybe used to be in the construction business -- -- to -- -- crane.
And now you've been laid off guess what -- people -- have to take exams to pass to get into some of these industries are not due to operate certain types of machinery.
You might -- -- tutor someone on how to pass out exit -- Or help mentor them into that position.
That it runs the candidate could be engines exams for college for universities for.
You know graduate school -- or even high school.
Attract a lot of -- seem like they're very education Diane did the best because that's one of the things where.
If you have experience in the field especially if you're a season workforce veteran.
You may be able to turn around -- and teach those who are just now coming out.
That are being hired because they may be cheaper labor.
Okay and then teaching English as a second language is on on -- list I hate to say -- there is a serious need in this country and to teach adults who don't speak English as their first language.
It's an unfortunate reality we need to deal with this in itself.
If you're someone who's older new.
Feel like you're confident in the speaker do you think you can teach others that's an opportunity or fewer young.
Anyone it may be kicked out take some time go overseas maybe sit out -- old little -- things recovery here.
There's a huge need for teaching English overseas as well that.
It's it's hard to believe -- feel like everywhere I travel people speak English differently if there's people living here in America for multiple years and they -- into the -- examples of places I've gone here.
-- did the most business in this country are small business and most business owners need help keeping their books.
You'd be surprised how many business owners I come across who still do it manually or have a written ledgers have.
Where they keep track of their seats they're vendors to liberals expenses.
Guess what most actions and -- was but -- good portion I think over -- quarter.
Of those in the -- -- industry are actually part time and so part time -- can keeping their could be if you know quick books or Turbotax or you could learn those soft.
-- and on -- needs to pitch yourself to -- small business that you know of saying just wondering I I can do this evening at a young man twice a week in just a little more organized what do you think.
-- means however much guys Graham and if you're an organized person yourself and you've always been good at math and keeping your numbers and keeping your own taxes everything straighten your own accounting.
You could find it for someone else who is a disaster at a death and you wanna take up their place.
Yeah exactly time -- money save time that it is I'm might be happy to have that and then you have social media tech support which is a -- is he now highly Saturday.
I had sometime back I run and I FaceBook page my Twitter account and even dislike update my email because this is a huge responsibility.
Lord you and I both -- Painful it takes an incredible amount of trying to.
So what I would say is yes there are so many opportunities -- particularly for young folks I've got to got to mix here for work -- veterans and for young folks.
For young folks if you are savvy.
And just learned some of the basics but understand how to use social media from marketing and reaching audiences in getting the word out.
And managing it and again I go back this is a great opportunity to pitch to small.
Businesses because small business owners don't have the timer resource to deal with Dennis they'd be happier brings -- -- it.
Again it's a really good point I think and other theology should consider.
Would be someone who can come into peoples of homes and hook up their TVs and computers that anything I agree with that one remote.
Saw some of that.
Yes to do it your cable people fail to do when they come out great and I've had to redo that stuff a lot of -- like that all you clients is get -- your -- -- in house.
That would be a great job.
That I'm -- let's pull up your article that is currently on foxbusiness.com.
As you can see there we -- we're fine part time working I'll find all of those ideas and that article that we just talked about with doctor Wendy -- thanks for coming.
Things written -- a break right now and we will be back with some more tips.
How to get ahead in the in the in the job world these days we'll be back.
Welcome back everybody to career accelerator Tuesday OK so how would the younger generation those of us born in the 1980s and nineties Generation Y.
I using social media to score jobs you wouldn't believe how many companies really rely on social media to get their workers and how many.
Candidates for jobs fine jobs.
In the social space or can't talk but all this right now with Michelle cut -- the principle -- -- creative and brand strategist.
-- -- -- now from Columbus, Ohio himself.
Good how are you doing I mean so social media as hot right especially on any big guns act.
How's that how how big of a force are we talking about it.
Pretty big board a lot of recruiters looking on lion.
-- -- that are actively looking on Linkedin for hiring is beginning to one of the platforms that recruiters are going to.
To finding qualified job applicants.
And it's really important for people looking for the right job.
You have and I you might -- tools on line.
To find something that's the right fit at what both parties really want here is the right thing.
We can to show full screen right now I 89%.
Of companies used to social media to recruit last year.
And is up 6%.
From the year before so it's pretty startling 9% it's even higher than in a that you -- still isn't anyone right Michelle what about some of the other sites is the Facebook is that popular for our.
For jobs are not quite yet they're trying to start with that what what does in the -- -- people use.
Well I mean -- yeah -- -- he is a primary lines they have job.
Like monster and those typical site that they have those options but FaceBook has a place where -- You can post appears here information and -- others from a business.
Type of environment.
But they're out -- I think in my opinion trying to grow that aspect that it.
You know you -- people's company blog and really see what's going on out there engage with them.
Where they're living you know -- did he knew what the content that they're putting out there you know it isn't something that.
That there are core values relate to them I needed something to regulate it can be hard -- -- something that they don't believe in many hidden apply.
-- Michelle how would you suggest.
Job applicants send.
And people looking for work better positioned themselves online with their profile and stuff like that so they are more attractive to employers.
I think that.
They should really look at their profiles online games for example -- and you know it -- a complete profile.
You know is their recommendations on that profile.
-- they have -- participating in industry groups are they contributing to this group.
You know are they forming relationships of people in this group.
And that night that -- Lincoln but other platforms as well in this group that they thought.
There's going all over the place through -- group and like the local at what age.
The small businesses that the -- and they -- very you know how much how visible argue with those groups and are you contributing in a positive way.
Mean don't you go out -- just itself.
You know go out there -- -- offered them assistance.
You can positive advice help somebody out of it Fuhrman for a job that might not be the right fit for you -- -- see a friend or someone out on the board that are looking for something.
Recommend that you know it -- come back here.
You know you think it -- not you know everything he has his own side but in -- industry's everybody kind of -- each other if he'd been in that industry long enough.
Right and that's why -- say the easiest job together the most common jobs that people -- -- through knowing somebody it's always a recommendation then and a friend.
And -- you know as mayor some things.
-- even if you doing cold with somebody at least know what they're about.
Yes and we don't going to say now -- like your company he -- -- we're crying and then Tony yeah.
Yeah sell to people really do that yeah especially now when everything's anti competitive at this.
I mean I only about 200 applications and resume as we hope that someone picks it up but -- we -- get picked up -- -- do your homework even if you didn't originally know about that company right.
-- -- then can't -- because then you're like what happened.
And what was the paying and don't -- know what's going -- you to bring you into an interviewer asked you questions about your resume don't tried to talk about Valerie.
And try to get a higher pay rate.
I mean it's like this.
I wanna go eat huge but he would -- engaged on the first call yet na hey.
-- -- -- -- You wanna date me I would be a good fit for you because that's kind of what you have -- that's good look at it yeah I'm Linda.
The long term thing and then we have here different ways to utilize social media tools in your job search on Twitter -- sense.
So don't have live job board and use -- asked can you give us -- impulse.
Thanks for example if you take Twitter and you couldn't get -- being searched term though.
Say that I wanna look for PR job so I concluded an -- is references -- -- hash -- PIR right outward public relations but it's whatever you're trying to go -- the you can substitute that.
And then good to be detailed search and you can kind of search under a -- fifteen -- re -- -- and then that become the local.
And do you see a list of all the different companies that have posted job and your public relations.
And then you can turn into an RSS feed and we could put step by step I had to get it in our -- after then.
And that way you could go back in check and reference that later.
Like every other day and those become the current search -- -- save a lot of time and you don't have to get -- million pose.
It that just when you you know and of course -- -- -- things that are not exactly like public relations in different spots.
Like it'll be a lot active in trying to go through all the different group.
-- -- -- -- Yes well those -- isn't great tips and I guess it might be difficult man linked in Twitter and some other sites but.
Invested here if you're hungry got to do that hey can you tell us -- Jabber Jabber dot com I found myself.
Would it be great career management who has PR and it's part -- it -- for example I was gonna send a resonate out the twenty different companies that were looking.
And that would help -- keep track of who went and had to do with the contact.
What date they do a media need to follow up it often lets you put in.
Cut the might contents -- -- that the place we could practice questions for the interview.
And it says like hey you know top five questions keep putting it is question boxing you can practice you know what led by doctor -- -- and it is trying to help you I think you in the whole process.
And how can they organize and it's I think it's a pretty invaluable cool I mean if you think it's a more professional organizer wade can -- technology.
You know we'll take those recommendations.
Michelle cut birth principle of baker creative and brand strategist thank you for coming on an -- -- many -- you were -- right now guys Anthony Salerno.
Tweeting in saying that's what we knew we use social media and mobile applications to stimulate the economy -- -- between Anthony.
And and you read -- says social media adds to the problem more than it helps people put too much and spoken in bad about themselves.
And others on -- yes I guess -- could be a certain.
That's being impeded upon and then spots.
Com I guess he -- -- Angeles times move with the times and be careful what personal information you put on anything on the web.
OK we're gonna rain out to the lovely lady sitting besides me leading decently get real Bernstein motivational speaker and author of spirit junkie.
And add more to your life.
He's into the tree and we're seeing here like I had said that had a nice little squiggly got that morning -- -- -- cover it yeah.
That's -- hot sun since its insidious OK so we're talking about.
It and I -- -- say not being competitive but seeing more positive thing creating better relationships with their coworkers as we all try to get ahead so what what would you have to say about that.
Well I think if were entering into any of relationship in the office who want to make sure you bring our a game in our most positive attitude because -- got to work with others.
Regardless of how much you may not like that it's your job to show up with your -- energy your -- attitude so I believe pat being.
A more positive approach here co worker relationship to really enhance your career and help you move forward and help you get the Johnson having a bad day.
Coming a day it's not been really good to just try to show up with your -- attitude to maybe think your way out of the negative -- they -- and or try to focus on the good and stay in a more positive energy because you don't want the whole.
Office to pick up your negative stuff I guess it is kind of contagious -- -- How do you best create those positive connections with coworkers co workers are hard to read.
Of this kind of just keeps themselves which is fine but there's you know.
Maybe it's not the most friendly environment and son he can't stand right right so how do you best maneuver all these different personalities I think in general what people want from you is your authentic truth so you can show up to any relationship in the office regardless of how much you may not like that person -- -- -- authentic to yourself.
And it really just show up with a natural attitude people really respect and admire that OK so really being authentic is one of the key ways to keep that relationship is that we mean when you say mind your -- side of the street minding your own chemistry we -- often look at other people that point the finger and say they're the reason I'm not getting my -- diner they're the reason that I miserable but now we want to really minor on that history really look at ourselves and say well what is it that I'm doing that may be holding me back.
Yet you know it's interesting you say that his satellite -- the advice I always give people say don't say just remove three words from your vocabulary it's not fair because it grammar affair let's not -- I try to remind myself of this sometimes.
And it kind of -- when you're talking reminded him that playing ethically if -- if -- -- boss wants.
Something done the right way and fastest -- give it to the busiest person in excess of person who always get and -- -- yes cell.
-- -- -- Yeah -- here I was Andrea yet making sure that -- really on top of what it is that you need to be on top unaware that a -- point the finger everybody else.
Okay what about examining your actions -- -- Well I think it's important that we are really mindful of the way that were -- what we're bringing to the table how we're handling situations.
Once again we -- -- necessarily be blaming everybody -- for all of their shortcomings in the office doing -- really say how can -- show up with my -- attitude and my -- energy system is that you -- about other people I think is -- other people and -- needs to be addressed that -- of a problem -- that's caused by another person or -- how do you address that in those situations you -- show up with respect and compassion recognizing that everybody in the office had a lot going on as well so.
If you come to somebody with an attack mode and you will receive that attack back right if you show up with a positive attitude no more respectful approach and you'll receive that respect back.
-- -- taking that into consideration before you approach anybody but absolutely be willing to have your voice heard I think it's very important to speak up when it's necessary.
Do you ever recommend speaking -- via email -- -- -- -- the person person fun.
It's not really recommended 24 hour rule because some of having their email -- email in that moment we would really regret -- head to -- yet I hope that and that's just not in your workplace that's -- like your entire yet don't treated I'm really thinking about -- idea -- be careful come down for recipients of the 24 -- cool off period he had -- -- -- -- -- may be revisited the next day especially with something that's really getting under your skin and that was really bothering you can't just take your time with your reactive responses.
Reactive responses but you know sometimes happens -- be so angry about something I give -- the -- for hours -- care about it the next didn't -- that could be bad because I'm not addressing it because this is not a concern and I think if you don't care read the next day event that's a good sign that means that you really did give yourself that breathing space if you do have some still energy around -- -- still connected to it then you'll know intuitively how to handle it.
We're not coming from that charge negative place right yeah that's the best advice for anybody yes cool off before you do any fanatical feeling doctor grant writing something I I don't know much about it that's it thank god he's so worded and printed and sent all -- -- -- boss's office and now.
People -- confused.
Misconstrue tone on he mound yes -- absolutely sometimes you mean something harmlessly just comes off little -- soar with a different connotation than expected yes I was -- have and a yeah -- -- its people in trouble OK and then you say wish good things upon others.
-- I think is really import.
And to really set the intention before you -- the office every day with a positive attitude and some respect towards your co -- so.
Whether you set the intention or say -- -- -- something that's a moment of reflection where you just say I wish for everyone to have as -- -- I would like myself to have.
And locking in with that attitude immediately just smooth any negative vibes everybody's kind of on the same even playing field.
And you have energy that's more spirited and more loving the second you walk in the doors -- silent prayer for your coworkers.
Even if you hate that especially if you hate -- my best day of prayer for them in the beginning of the day.
You do -- Yes I can yeah I feel like any other country right now a year you make me very calm OK and then you have a -- and upcoming series online right -- tell us about that so Fred he spiritually minded entrepreneurs out there or anywhere who's in sales I'm doing a program called god -- my public says.
It's all about really bringing an -- miracle mindset and more -- lot of traction mindset into your publicity plan for an -- sales approach.
And having a better energy around the way you -- like people are pushing controlling and this is really about trying to find ways to do it that much more faithful attitude.
Yes and then -- you'll be probably calmer.
In the process yet to take care of you away -- have all those.
Goodbyes and good intentions for other people to have real -- steaming -- so much.
