CareerBuilder’s Annual Summer Job Forecast: Popsicle-Making, Heated Competition, and Long-Term Gigs

Posted: 11 May 2009 02:29 PM PDT

dirdancingSummer jobs can’t all be all Summer Rental-esque boat-racing, resort dancing/noboby-puts-Baby-in-the-cornering, and running off to space camp (don’t we wish), but job seekers have had their share of jobs at which they’ve had the time of their life unusual jobs. And as tradition would have it, summer jobs, a crucial source of income for many, is thriving. This year, however, summer-job seekers are facing a more challenging market, according to CareerBuilder’s Annual Summer Job Forecast.

Nearly a quarter (23 percent) of employers plan to hire seasonal workers for the summer, similar to last year’s Summer Job Forecast findings, but as unemployment is high and more people are clamoring for the same number of summer jobs, the competition for summer jobs will be stiffer than in years past.

“Summer job seekers face a bigger challenge this year than in years past, as the market is flooded with candidates looking for both full and part-time positions,” said Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources for CareerBuilder. “The good news is that many traditional summer jobs are still available, but in this environment, it is essential that job seekers differentiate themselves and demonstrate how their skills can have a positive impact on a business in a short amount of time.”

Summer, extended

You think it’s likely that you’ll fall in love with your lifeguarding job (or, alternately, one of your fellow lifeguards)? Good news: The survey, conducted from February 20 to March 11, 2009 among more than 2,500 employers, found that many who do land summer jobs may have a chance to turn their seasonal roles into year-round stints. More than half (56 percent) of companies reported that they would consider summer recruits for permanent placement within their organizations.

Steady (pay)rollin’

When it comes to summer paychecks, nearly eight in ten (77 percent) of hiring managers will offer the same pay to seasonal workers this year as they did last year, while 9 percent will offer more and 9 percent will offer less.

How much more — and how much less — will summer workers get paid?

  • Forty-two percent of companies plan to pay  $10 or more per hour
  • Thirty percent anticipate paying between $8 and $10 per hour
  • Ten percent expect to pay less than $7 per hour
  • Six percent plan to pay $20 or more per hour

Where are the jobs?

Comparing the industries surveyed, hospitality and retail have plans to bring the most summer workers on board, at 38 percent and 34 percent respectively. Across all industries, the most popular summer positions being offered include:

  • Office support — 26 percent
  • Customer service — 18 percent
  • Research — 12 percent
  • Landscape/maintenance — 11 percent
  • Restaurant/food service — 11 percent
  • Sales — 10 percent
  • Construction/painting — 8 percent

Workers’ most unusual summer gigs:

When asked about the most unusual or memorable summer jobs they’ve ever held, workers shared the following responses:

  • Bungee-jumping tower assistant
  • Commercial bee herder
  • Scouted garage sales for items to resell on eBay
  • Murder Mystery dinner actor
  • Cleaned gum off of school desks
  • Gun fighter at a theme park
  • Popsicle maker
  • Picked up road kill
  • Painted silo tops hanging from a crane
  • Waterslide repairman

Let’s just hope the “road kill picker-upper” and “Murder Mystery dinner” aren’t connected in any way. Yikes.

Are You Doing Business in One of The Best Cities for College Grads?

Posted: 08 May 2009 10:48 AM PDT

Yep, it’s that time of year again: College Graduation. Parties, celebrations, awards, a sense of accomplishment — and, oh, figuring out a place to live! Many college graduates-to-be are considering relocation to new cities to find a fresh start, a fresh career, and a fresh place to mount their shiny new college diploma. Only this time, the game is a bit different, as more competition for jobs is coupled with an economy in the midst of a recession — and the stress of stretching those entry-level-job dollars is often immense. The cost of living is high, and upcoming grads need as many resources as they can get to help them decide where their dollars will be best spent in their initial months out of the dorms.

With this in mind, and CBcampus have provided results for the second annual Top Ten Best Cities for Recent College Graduates.

“Given the current economy, new grads looking to relocate are becoming increasingly concerned with the cost of living as they are faced with more competition for jobs than seen in previous years,” said Tammy Kotula, public relations and promotions manager at

The results were based on three criteria:

  1. Number of entry-level job openings
  2. Cost of rent
  3. Population of young adults

As it’s important for job seekers to understand their best living options, it is also important for employers to know where their city stacks up in the job atmosphere — and be aware of their competition in attracting top job seekers not only to their city, but to their company as well.

So… did your city make the list?

Latest BLS Report A Mix of Good, Not-So-Good News

Posted: 08 May 2009 08:27 AM PDT

The following is a re-post from our colleagues over at The Work Buzz, CareerBuilder’s job seeker blog:

While the BLS reported this morning that nonfarm payroll employment continued to decline in April (-539,000) and the unemployment rate rose from 8.5 to 8.9 percent, a closer look shows some positive indicators. Yes, 5.7 million jobs have been lost since the recession began in December 2007.  And yes, nearly all major private-sector industries lost jobs again in April.

BUT, while declines were widespread, the numbers of jobs lost receded compared to previous months. The loss of 539,000 jobs in April means that 142,000 fewer jobs were lost compared to the 681,000 lost in February (revised down 30,000), and 160,000 fewer compared to the 699,000 lost in March (revised down 36,000). This is the least amount of jobs lost since October, which saw a decline of 380,000 jobs.

And with regards to the unemployment rate, keep in mind that it is a lagging indicator of the economy. That’s why we look so closely at the number of jobs lost versus the unemployment rate. Consumer confidence, business investment and consumer spending usually recover ahead of the jobs market.

Next month will tell.  If the number of jobs lost in May is less than what was lost in April, that could signal a road to recovery.

There was also some growth. Health care remained strong, adding 17,000 jobs; Government grew by 72,000 jobs, attributed mainly to the hiring of temporary workers for the 2010 census. But there were job gains - albeit small - in some other sectors:

  • Food manufacturing grew by 10,000 jobs.
  • Bookkeeping and accounting services added 3,000 jobs (keep in mind, it was tax season).
  • Management and technical consulting services added 2,000 jobs.
  • Gasoline stations, waste management, motion picture and sound recording, and membership associations added 1,000 jobs each.

So is the economy on the mend? We don’t have a crystal ball, but it’s worth reading this MSNBC article.

Mother’s Day Survey Reveals One Third of Working Moms are Burned Out

Posted: 05 May 2009 02:30 PM PDT

Today, CareerBuilder released its annual Mother’s Day survey, the results of which I might not bring up at this Sunday’s brunch, lest you risk ruining your appetite for Eggs Benedict (and that is not okay where I come from)…

It seems that struggling to find a work/life balance as they take on additional hours and second jobs in tough financial times is starting to take a toll, as 34 percent of the 496 mothers surveyed report feeling “burned out.”

Not all that surprising consider that, according to the survey, 30 percent of working moms, whose companies have had layoffs in the past 12 months, are working longer hours, and 14 percent have taken on second jobs in the last year to help make ends meet.

The survey results also indicate that working moms are feeling increased pressure to be able to continue providing for their households and are spending more time on work:

  • 40 percent of working moms fear losing their jobs today more than they did one year ago
  • 43 percent work more than 40 hours per week
  • 16 percent bring work home at least two days a week
  • 6 percent bring work home with them every workday

Increased workloads are impacting the quantity and quality of time spent with their families - adding to their feelings of anxiety:  

  • Nearly 20 percent spend two hours or less with their children each day
  • 25 percent missed at least two significant events in their child’s life in the last year
  • One third of respondents are willing to take a pay cut to spend more time with their kids - even today, during one of the toughest economies in the nation’s history

Needless to say, “burned out” employees don’t exactly make for the most productive employees - even if they are bringing work home with them. This holiday, honor the working mothers at your company by thinking of ways to ease the stress that comes from raising a family in addition to holding down a job.

  1. Encourage employees to take care of themselves - Research shows that unhealthy employees are less productive, according to a recent Workforce Management article.  Encourage your employees to take advantage of health and wellness benefits (there’s a good chance they may not even be aware of all the benefits available), as well as vacation time so that they can take needed time off to recharge and spend time with their families. 
  2. Be open to providing alternative work arrangements - Alternative work arrangements not only help your workers maintain a better work/life balance (or “juggle” as HR Ringleader prefers to treat it), but they have a positive impact on productivity.  Consider compressed work-weeks, flexible hours that let employees start earlier and leave earlier and telecommuting.
  3. Know when to say when - As the infamous Bayer plant explosion shows, overworking your employees can lead to disaster (quite literally, in this case) At the same time, your employees are likely hesitant to say no to any projects that come their way, even if it means taking on more work than they can realistically handle.  Be sure to check in with them to see that they’re able to handle the amount of work you’re giving them - be flexible and willing to acknowledge that some projects may need to sit on the backburner so other projects can take precedence.  You may also look into providing classes or workshops devoted to time or project management, which will help them better prioritize their tasks, utilize their working hours and, ultimately, alleviate their stress.
