Jobs - What's Hot

Employment Opportunities Change

The type of jobs available changes quickly! Changes in technology, working environments and work habits have changed the types of careers available. For example, 15 years ago, social media didn’t exist. Now, there are people whose sole responsibility is to manage the company’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other relevant social media outlets. Companies are also hiring people to develop apps for phones and tablets.

But, that’s not all. Twenty years ago, a job in manufacturing was very labor intensive. Today, in many manufacturing jobs, the amount of “hard labor” has decreased as machines handle much of the work. Employees use a computer to program machinery and troubleshoot any problems.

With the availability of the Internet, many people are able to work from home. Did you know that when you call a customer service line, it’s likely that the person on the other end is taking your call in the comfort of their own home?
