-- -- Minds and me.
Yeah well I sent me that says -- book and that number.
His grandmother September can't -- level in three years.
And what that means is that.
Thank find it.
Everybody is that each new home created and bill actually creates three up so we'll take it that's very good news for the housing market rejects and I for -- from an -- have you ever done that.
Oh yeah yeah I didn't think it's ominous occupational -- Assemble myself here.
And you tell me about this great interview did with the CEO of snap on his -- who says that this job market right now is lacking the necessary.
-- Manufacturing jobs remained unfilled in this country and -- a number of manufacturers are saying.
Is that -- are not seeing people come out of our education system.
With the skills they need to train these workers so 600000 opening say that manufactures -- twelve and a half.
Million unemployed Americans and it last time we saw 600000 jobs created in one month that I think it had a lot to do with we never actually haven't seen and it's an analog to do with.
Census workers coming back -- so.
You think about taking all those folks off off of unemployment it's it's pretty attractive for the job market.
And so we asked the CEO snap on what exactly do we need to do as a country to make sure people are prepared for these jobs and here's what he said.
Education and a technical -- career is viewed as a consolation.
To a four year degree.
And actually I think it should be raced to a national priority.
So that they're not any consolation but an inspiration.
Think about it -- we were going to high school how many people that you went to high school with his parents and you gotta get that paper that four year degree.
That says that you finished a four year degree -- -- your bachelor's degree at college and you know how many of our friends.
Really probably shouldn't have gone to college and a number of friends who went school for a couple years -- wasn't for them when they went.
Spent you know 3040000 dollars in college debt and then ended up getting it -- -- degree in something else of what they're saying is.
Make a technical degree of priority.
Just say a college degree four -- degrees not for everyone -- like a technical degree is not for everyone but hold them up to similar standards.
Great college isn't for everybody if you're not gonna and if you don't know what you wanna do warrior taking too long to figure out and let's say you don't go to Harvard or the University of Pennsylvania.
-- something like that it might not be worth it for you to get that degree if you're not specializing -- race there was report.
Earlier this week about on the MBA programs applications are down Freeney substantially so in many ways it's probably easier to get into business school right now.
But for Columbia have friends since the 19% drop off in applications this year and now four years in a row so I just goes to show you way its prestigious to have certain degree is -- economically viable.
Well I mean yeah as as someone who did just one year at that school for journalism I can tell you that it is.
Absurdly expensive to go there and it really makes you wonder.
Is that worth the training -- -- to get here obviously it's a value it's an education.
But isn't worth the cost and we've seen university prices increase -- you know it's a university health care prices are are on runaway trains.
Hi in our and our society and and it's gonna get to the point where it.
Everyone is gonna see that as a good deal and a better deal will could be a technical -- such if you like it better you don't want to go to a four year college.
And oftentimes you -- make more money which at least you're using your one year at Columbia in your current profession yeah one year at Columbia in comparative literature.
-- -- a -- things well I don't.
I have a history degree underground I mean you know we -- this.
Read so I guess we have the same mom -- incense.
And you -- you went to Rutgers student him.
I did have him a Jersey state school undergrad majored in history and and you know -- got a lot of friends -- Either -- either going to like maybe journalism or everyone else just became lawyers and the history degree.
Including your wife who had trouble getting into -- it.
Not yet she -- she had a job and then went to get a and in advance tax degree here in Georgetown and this is right 2009 and not I -- one person.
-- class got a lot from job.
I remember the timing that resentment thank you so much things that interview with the snap on CEO so they're more options out there for people -- that fancy bachelor's degree and Community Colleges so is -- that -- colleges good.
Discouraging here at Fox Business OK -- right Taylor is joining us right now from our Miami bureau.
You're the General Counsel for the Miami Heat as well as the American Airlines Arena.
Why -- -- how are you need thanks for coming on the web today.
Hi thanks for having me I'm actually the vice president and associate General Counsel.
I don't take a heck I sort of game you address some sort of a promotion -- they.
You today that let you know what my Abbas who has actually get out -- pretty fantastic how I left to give her her kudos to the -- on the awards today about the fresh rating signs that we sometimes feel -- I -- I think we might be hitting our career breaking point.
Sadly music career breaking point and and how do you know when you're coming up to one.
-- I I like to look at it in in two kind of different segment in areas one is.
You really like what you're doing but you're just so overwhelmed and over burdened with work you just don't know what to do where to start where to begin in it in a completely different story.
And then the second kind of -- is you know likely to do or or you're not happy where you are.
In and you then kind of doing things to isolate yourself.
Or you just kind of like -- here would in my dealing -- hate it hate everybody.
Those sorts of they -- at that point that's a pretty good sign that that you need to kind of reassess and make it change so basically when you're unhappy.
Right and when -- when you and me and we have a full screen here overwhelmed -- frustrated.
They're isolated everything you just said so if that -- you and you're watching right now I guess.
-- you have some tips for us what should he do at that point.
Wolf first is to.
Get a sounding board you know couldn't -- everyone goes through ups and downs.
And so you want to make sure that you're not making rash decisions because -- had a bad day or it was a bad project or somebody really just kind of -- to the runway.
I think you -- had that little advisory board that you talk to and were objected to say yet maybe.
This really is there really are some significant problems here.
So if you kind of get that confirmation you really just it's been persisting for a little while and think he could have to take some action steps.
And really take control -- situation in the first incidents.
We're talking about you realize what you do for you just overwhelmed all the time and they first.
But there are times where you just have to grind out you know that's just a ton of work to be done and you get a step it up and do it.
But if it persists.
It that's not a good situation for anybody so I think you have to talk to.
The folks that you report into and your colleagues to say look I.
Really like being here I I wanna continue to add value but at this pace and I really feel like it is a detriment.
Rather then an ad.
That I'm bringing in terms of my -- how engaged I can be.
And how productive I can be and so then from there start to really set.
Boundaries and time lines maybe he get rid of all of the work or delegate that sort of thing but certainly you can push it out sick.
I'd love to be a help on this -- love to participate.
But I have to do it in these amounts of time this amount of time as opposed to next week.
In order to be productive in all their assignments have been hit.
So that that's a much more -- positive productive waited that keeps you sane but also -- you productive.
Right and and even if we can just talk a little bit about your personal career because first and -- play -- very successful as associate -- look at.
Let's cut a year now dominated fields so as to how did you do it and then also did you ever -- or or come close to reaching -- career breaking point.
Oh my goodness.
Yes yes and yes.
And as it long story short -- I have an interesting path I actually started.
Boutique law firm entertainment sports when I was in college.
And I worked for these two gentlemen who formed it later became my mentors they weren't at the time and it worked on the entertainment segment that I'm never gonna work in sports those sports -- Really kind of maintenance and I think it's a betting it can let her -- -- -- better.
An idiot and lo and behold they -- kicked me out I think you need to go work for some of the people we love you but we're not gonna hire you right away and went to a firm.
And and and didn't like corporate stuff so -- great trademark.
It was kind of the advent of the e-business and kind of went movement that -- myself there -- and one called me a few years and and -- I saw something it may be it Matt you're still federally -- in -- with a golf.
It gave them down a month later and I will tell you I never thought I would be in sports but.
What -- -- was.
That I didn't really play off well then I just learned that you let the war -- -- great.
That -- -- going to be -- -- working at night out on the golf course.
So that was really kind of the beginning of my career in sports and Anna that tell you it is not necessarily -- easy even in women's golf golf is golf whom in terms.
It in and much like basketball it professional that's well -- it's very homogeneous on the business.
But I think look.
And by and large as women much of the heavy lifting has been done for us in terms of the movement is concerned in in fighting for equal rights and while there are still barriers in -- there's been broken glass ceilings to be.
-- do -- really see it as my obligation to kind of build on that legacy thing that we think get bitten as opposed to sitting around saying.
They won't give it to me because that's -- So that's kind of my percent in our -- might take on it and how I operate and have move through.
Not couldn't agree with you and it's worked X excellent point very well -- seven and well thought out as well.
What's being called.
An op opportunities spot and what is that.
Still that's really kind of -- builds on that that philosophy about figuring out how you're gonna make it happen.
Sometimes people give you great opportunities and it's exactly in the direction that you want to go and sometimes it just doesn't happen.
And so you got to figure out like how to -- get to my goal I reach my golden.
When it's not when a clear path isn't present it and I like to think that everything relates to everything else you don't always know how you're going to.
Put together the pieces.
But if you're old -- and about the opportunities.
You know it may get in there for instance that people say to -- -- wanna work in sports that they think.
That working for the NBA in healthier and it fell -- the only ways to do it message did you know there's there's the national rodeo association.
For pro beach volleyball tour.
Or in -- national governing bodies.
Ping -- USA track and field -- like to think we -- do the same thing.
It's -- at different levels in so you get in you figure out what.
You know your skill set your expertise and expect to build a reputation for that and then it's easier to navigate your way through.
-- at the same premise really of what about opportunities -- And win for instance in your career are you may feel like there's a glass ceiling and you may not be able to go anywhere to get a paid bills and put food on the table.
Maybe start to build those other.
Expertise those other skills that outside to a professional association leadership position.
And those sorts of things that the technical classes I think you -- -- you know a little bit earlier to ending you start -- round outdoor packages.
-- do you think that most store or many Maureen in some opportunities are just hard to see are they invisible for us.
I think sometimes -- get pretty myopic about what success means or what are -- it.
And I think we just got to take off the -- a little bit.
They say okay big picture.
These are the skills that I need to get to point B which is where I want to be in even I can't I can't travel that straight road.
I'm going over around through pick up underneath these obstacles.
It's still gets me to be.
I have a conversation I would say every single -- day with.
A younger person who wants to be a television report there and you didn't think that they can get -- Air immediately.
And not only on air immediately sign here in New York the number one market immediately old flag outside -- -- -- did my answer over the years.
Tell dump your answer well it's it's slightly different for for each person but for the most part.
I say there's a lot of them don't know and don't know you don't know it -- it -- hearing -- jet and your experience level.
But there are so many ways tick capture.
Think end goal no matter what it is and you have to find out all those back roads and then -- -- just.
Yeah almost falling to when -- -- that other experience that leads you to the main goal you don't just you don't just become president overnight you know.
Absolutely and I said you're saying that I'm and is thinking of these and these conversations that that happen.
All the time and I am I myself was one of those people saying I wanna do what I wanna do it tomorrow.
-- -- -- Thanks Ed you know I think there's little wit someplace to put that energy and effort yes I just think it you have to be realistic and have good sounding board and -- to say.
Yes you -- tailored to joining us from Miami.
The associate general accounts London and VP for the Miami Heat and American Airlines Arena.
Thank you so much for joining us he that was very inspirational.
And subwoofer for me I hope you -- at this and saying okay we're a little break right now we'll be back with the doctor -- telling us about a new venture he's got going on.
And I opportunities for many people who aren't quite eight.
Ready or interested in jumping back.
Into the workforce and a full time basis we'll be back.
Welcome back to career accelerator OK we have doctor -- in the house joining us says you do every Tuesday I hear.
We're talking about.
Let's work so -- this is flex.
Fletcher can really be a lot of things and it kind of depends on how you -- that it but in other words it's.
Flexible schedules or working non traditional type of -- -- could be telecommuting working from home full time.
It could be having a part time schedule where you go into an office part of the time it can be working remotely there's a really wide variety of things that flex work entails but the idea is it's an alternative way of -- Is it -- -- regular nine to five schedule -- -- and you have an article on foxbusiness.com.
So it can show you on this topic -- and it's different and freelance work.
Correct -- dam break -- -- courses suit.
There are some similarities but typically -- work it's gonna be you may be working for a company or what would seem like it's traditional role or job.
But you're scheduled may be more flexible or you may be working fully from home.
Which opens up a whole host of different.
-- things you need to think about when you're working on that had a schedule verses going to a regular physical space everywhere Oklahoma State right now.
It is big and flexible work -- telecommuting are getting -- and there's a couple reasons why one is right now.
Companies are trying to cut costs so one way you cut costs.
It's a cut down on your physical space that you have to rent and maintained so.
-- ability people work from home is becoming cheaper and they'll do the senate easily for you when it comes to Internet line and phones so that's one reason on the other side.
We have people out there who are struggling to find jobs especially in hard hit areas like Nevada or towns in California where.
The job opportunities are drying out and so what would you do.
Most people don't have the ability to leave where they are because they may be under water on a mortgage they've got kids in school facility built.
You can expand your work your your search by looking at flexible work opportunities or by telecommuting.
Two point eight million people consider their home.
Their primary place of work so that's the size of this -- and -- is not -- -- get exactly in addition twenty to thirty million people work from home.
At least one day a week right probably -- -- right.
I don't know so.
I don't have a market this this -- and growing as as you know as you mentioned.
So the pros are obvious here right you don't commutes to your saving on the train in the gas -- -- -- -- commuting when you're on the -- -- looks unhappy so it's a great that's a good good front and another -- is more flexibility right with how you spend your time and -- -- during the -- He didn't think on your wardrobe right 800 but were -- -- another -- would think given the -- also.
Most the things the business of like things you have to get -- happened between nine and five.
From the associated traditional -- harder to get likes things done if you have a more flexible schedule allows for that.
I have a con from.
Works from home for a little bit but it and essentially worked in the kitchen so I just.
All day long so you're working from home -- avoid the kitchen.
It's setting up shop that idea if you keep the office away from their progress.
Yes you ever get.
Quite quickly it's about creating a psychological boundaries kick -- because what happens this.
It's easy to get distracted by TV or food depending.
On what you're your -- might be mean but it's also you need to make sure you manage that blur between work life balance and when you working when you're not because.
When you don't have that physical space is to find -- go to.
It can be a challenge.
And less social contact great with with friends and people in peers and you can have trouble dealing with distractions as well like I knew it with my refrigerator.
Also you know the movie that you want to watch on TV or I mean maybe just owning it happened time so there's definitely kinds when you talk more about this right now win.
-- -- in the CEO and founder of flex jobs joining us now from Denver.
And you guys are working on something together doctor woody and -- -- and -- jobs.
About a webinar -- in about less than two hours from now right.
-- is that -- at a -- rate hit it exactly about that.
I -- you webinar to help people learn more of out what flexible job options advanced.
What are out there how to find them tips on avoiding job scams.
Working with doctor -- -- is -- -- plan in the fight for her and a lot of releasing information -- just let people know that there are viable professional options that -- fossil.
What is split up flex jobs yet it's a service -- pay for -- its website tells a little bit about it.
And manage -- complex -- out.
Flex jobs is -- service that helps people find professional job opportunities.
That offer some kind of work flexibility.
Such as telecommuting.
Part time freelance.
Alternative or flexible schedules from me and I started.
Myself like millions of women and mothers -- I was looking at job opportunities that would allow -- Stay in my career path but also feel a bit more present for my family -- and Kennedy both -- and I was really frustrated with what I found.
That window of opportunity and although I wasn't expecting to start -- company will also starting my family hit.
Decided to go for it it's been really wonderful there's a big finance.
A people who want -- flexibility for mother had been up for a lot of other reason -- military spouses or other staff with the kids going back to school this is a great option for parents read about this time -- decide top industries.
Or you can do -- work.
Well we have over fifty different -- categories.
Some of the most popular though in terms of volume.
Our medical and health education in customer survey -- administrative.
But having said that there are a lot of other opportunities and nonprofit -- -- I've really see it their way more than you'd ever expect.
I didn't would you like -- -- give a couple examples of it kind of surprising jobs out there yes that would be great that would be great.
Okay wonderful on the well -- almost every day our researchers find jobs it's really surprise them an offer flexibility.
For example if you're looking for telecommuting jobs there are a lot of opportunities.
That you would expect to have some level of telecommuting and -- might not be entirely -- feeding.
But it might have some.
Maybe it's 23 days a week or -- training for four weeks and in the office and then telecommuting from home.
And some of those jobs at least seen our remote areas surgeons golf instructors.
PE in music instructors.
And then if you're looking for -- ten opportunities there a lot more -- Actually -- ton of really interesting professional opportunities.
That offer -- ten schedules.
That you wouldn't expect -- says such as.
We've seen that naral psychologists.
And a bunch of other interesting ones now fourth rates are safe plant -- -- -- one of the the top 57.
The top 75 I'm sorry career sites out there -- their -- for this however.
-- where premium service for job seekers.
It ranges from 1495 a month.
Up to 49953.
Year -- the African peace satisfaction guarantee we really want job seekers to feel empowered and we want them to walk away.
Feeling that they've gotten a good value.
And what -- service primarily that is is we help people alleviate pain point in the -- search process.
A finding a legitimate professional jobs and especially in the work from home and the part time that -- is there are a lot of scams and a lot of kind of not professional opportunities and and the work from home market alone there's between sixty and seventy -- for everyone real real job -- our team leads all of those apps and I'm -- -- doctor -- and here maybe you can give us a sense of it.
Would you get health care and -- these flex job situations that's really an option.
It's taken it I don't think it's off the table it totally depends and is it -- -- -- tell you a lot of these jobs especially.
If it's a full time telecommuting job.
We're even and it's a part time you know flexible schedule it may still fall under the same rules that being in a physical office space and so.
One thing is I don't want people to be deterred because of it the notion of flux are flexible or working from home as it.
If it somehow really that different from having that same job -- a physical space and because.
Now part time rules are different there's no doubt about it but -- -- full time flexible work.
There's no doubt about it like you mentioned 2030 million people work one day a week for a moment the rest time -- in the office that's flexible schedule.
Same thing with like a lot of telecommuting jobs.
Maybe working a full time schedule.
But are doing it somewhere remotely so we have to be careful we don't want -- -- that is.
Physical walls define -- in hand and I think another thing -- to keep in mind that Sarah brought up is remembered.
The job that you used to do.
-- the job that you're looking for May actually exists in the flexible world.
And you don't know if you don't look forward you don't know I don't ask even at your current job it maybe there may be flexible -- -- Neil Holloway knows that he asked to find out.
Excellent -- after winning thank you sand -- and founder and CEO of flex jobs thank you for joining us good luck on your webinar -- review.
Later on today.
To wanna say something about yes -- it would -- -- 1 o'clock eastern time today will be doing a free webinar and Q&A chat with myself and Sarah and on just flexible job opportunities stuff out there and if you just go to her site flex jobs -- com.
