Many job seekers are frustrated!

They survive job search and employment interviews, but  learn that the interviewing companies will not hire them.

Why not?

HR may be adding applications and resumes for future use, jobs already may have been filled, or these jobs may need to have been advertised outside the company by law, even though internal applicants were hired.

It’s frustrating!

Some businesses, however, really need to hire more people, a lot more – So try them. Find them at:

Some nurses in the United States and globally are retiring and quitting. The 12-hour shifts up to 5 and 6 days per week may be responsible for part of this loss, because the shortage was already under way when the wonderful system of three day’s of 12-hour shifts became popular. Now it’s 5 or 6 days with requests for additional work as well. Nurses are burning out on this schedule.

Further, nursing schools across America have difficulty expanding their capacity to meet an increasing demand for care. In fact, these schools are experiencing a shortage of nursing instructors.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Employment Projections to 2022, the Registered Nurse (RN) is in the top occupations for job growth. America needs more nurses. The also country needs LPNs, LVNs, and even thousands more Certified Nursing Aides. The RN shortage is likely to be strongest the American South and the West through 2030, perhaps because many retirees move tho these locales.

What can America do about its RN Nursing Shortage?

Do you need a well-paying job and feel willing to travel to another state in order to secure it? Even if you are a worker ages 50 and older? It’s possible and it’s all taking place in Houston, Texas.

We know that Texas was relatively unaffected by the Great Recession of 2008 – 2010, especially in its major cities. All these cities are good places for workers of any age to find employment, including our senior citizens.

Many Seniors need to work past “retirement”, the definition of which is changing.

Did you know that under the Reagan Administration, the Social Security Retirement Age for full benefits was scheduled to increase to age 75?

That’s right! Younger Baby Boomers today may not retire until age 66 already, and some of them have received letters stating that they should not retire until age 70.

Regardless, many of our nation’s older workers want and need to work past age 62. Houston is the best city in the State of Texas to do so, because of the long list of Senior Resources available and the large number of jobs open. Texas is much more than big hats, longhorn steers, and horses.

And why not work, unless you can schedule a global tour to last about five years? I met a woman long ago who was in her 70s and working in a large department store in Downtown Dayton, Ohio. Sure, her hair was white, but her demeanor was that of a joyous young woman. I want to be like that!

Here is a snapshot of jobs most often listed in Houston, where we have over 70,000 openings in Early July 2015:

  • Healthcare and Healthcare Support offer over 49,000 openings in Greater Houston- Travel health professionals are dramatically in demand and these folks earn more than average and benefit from perks like mortgage payments!
  • Engineers are needed to the tune of 15,000 openings in various field from It to Healthcare to Oil & Gas. More thousands of technician’s jobs are attached to these engineers, especially in the Aerospace Industry.
  • Officer Support, Customer Service, and Call Center jobs number over 14,000. remember Dame Judy Dench’s character in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – she became a call center consultant.
  • Business and Finance lists over 11,000 openings for auditors, accountants, and analysts.

Whatever your plans for the future and your retirement, if you need to work, you might want to get your self to Houston!

In 2013, American companies advertise approximately 1,000 anti-corruption related positions across the country;but, the number of openings advertised rose to over 1,400 positions in Spring 2015.

This is a rapidly expanding sector in the area of Criminology and should continue to produce new jobs in the next several years. Competitions between nations is rising as USA, Russia, China and other go after property tights on Mars, the Moon, and the Asteroid Belt.

In Medicine, anti-corruption work is important to control fraud in personal injury, Workers Compensation, SSI/SSDI, Medicare, Medicaid, drugs, transplant and 3D-Printer organs marketing, and many others.

Highest Demand Anti-Corruption Jobs Advertised Include:

  • Chief Compliance Officer
  • Senior Audit Leader
  • Litigation/Forensic Accountant
  • Audit Manager
  • Cyber Crime and Breach Response
  • Risk & Compliance Specialist
  • Anti-Money Laundering Analyst
  • Insurance Investigator
  • Claims Analyst

If you are over 50 years old in America, you may be able to benefit from some of the facts and advice in the following article:

How to Cut Costs & Increase Income

Many Baby Boomers are finding that their age for receiving full benefits from Social Security Retirement has been raised to age 66 years. Some of the youngest Boomers are being pushed to wait until age 70.

A big surprise for the now-young Generation Z, though, is that Congress under the Reagan Administration passed actions that raise their age of retirement to 75.

In addition, today’s senior citizens who have no families are in a rough spot. Many are becoming homeless, with absolutely no place to go. While larger cities have a homeless services network, rural communities and many small towns usually have nothing of the sort. Some seniors are even stuck in abusive relationships, because otherwise, they would be homeless.

Employment services are senior citizens are growing, especially in places like Texas and Oregon, and adequate housing is the next step in helping our aging population to survive in America.

“You must have all your teeth pulled immediately.”

That’s what a friend of mine was told when that person presented an Insurance Card and underwent an oral examination. Extractions were covered, but other services were not – not even a cleaning.

Residents of Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio were pleased when governors accepted the option of expanding Medicaid coverage to state residents of higher income levels, but they learned that coverage is not very good. Someone is paying a lot of money in taxes for these covered persons to receive nothing.

A dentist advised the patient mentioned above to have all teeth pulled, because root canals, caps, and bridges would not be a covered expense. But, one set of dentures every two years would be covered.

HEALTHCARE

Because of the again Baby Boomers and the nurses and doctor that are also ging Baby Boomers. the Healthcare Industry is booming larger than expected.  Not only are job vacancies increasing for RNs and LPNs, along with a number of fancily-named aides, but more and more nurses are called upon to become Nurse Practitioners (NPs).

In fact, it seems in Internet postings that job openings for Physician Assistants are often changing into new listings for Nurse Practitioners. Another growing trend is for Travel Nursing, which includes assignments to posh sites, transportation reimbursement for airfare, mortgage or rental payment for up to a year, higher wages, and many other perks.

Overall, at least 34 – 40% or more of America’s current nursing staff are retiring before 2020. For example, in Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio, a large proportion of working RNs are 55 years old or older already in 2013.  Nursing instructors and professors do not make as much money, so nurses are staying on the hospital floor and out of the university faculty. Who is going to teach our new nurses and nurse practitioners that we need so badly?

Healthcare as a business is increasing as well because of adult and childhood obesity on the rise. In fact, the average lifespan of  US middle schoolers seems to be reducing, because of this phenomenon. However, despite First Lady Michelle Obama’s effort with the Let’s Move Program and healthy eating, kids in the USA, Canada, and Mexico need more help along those lines. We hope that they will not need all of expensive electronic replacement organs and the awesome 3D printer replacement body parts available even today.

The Aerospace Industry is recognizing the need for health and medical practitioners for the growing private and NASA space programs. Mental health professionals are as necessary as medical practitioners “up there”, because the first astronauts to spend a full year on the International Space Station will do so before 2015. It is not going to be the most comfortable or healthy year without planning and help. With a scheduled private fight to Mars in 2018, these issues really need to be addressed.

Other new avenues opening in the Healthcare Industry include genetic testing and genetic counseling, baby designing, and related phenomena. Why, you can even use DNA tests to procure the perfect mate or design a great dog! This all must create some sort of mental impact.

Regarding that mental impact, the new DSM 5 diagnostic manual of the American Psychiatric Association is released on May 13, 2013. It contains a lot of changes and some new maladies, so professional diagnosis, prescription medication, and SSI/SSDI support will all be affected down the line. Almost frightening is related research that gives evidence to the links between ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Schizophrenia, Major Depression, and Bi-Polar Disorder. The non-degreed lay persons that are smugly misdiagnosing these conditions over the Internet and the back yard gossip fence are not helping any.

Fortunately, jobs leading to careers for people who are or will become qualified to help patients and clients in all aspects medical and mental are increasing, as are college and university programs to train them – except for nurses, which really needs an influx of new students as well as higher wages for nursing instructors.

Greater Green Bay Area is in the Top 25 Best Medium-Sized Cities for new jobs openings and potential new businesses in America., besides being the exciting home of the Green Bay Packers.

Underground warehouses take up the space of abandoned limestone mines in Indiana, Illinois, Missouri in the Midwest and Pennsylvania, New York, and Kentucky.

This warehousing below ground saves American businesses a lot of money every year and creates more jobs for truck drivers. In fact, those trucking jobs are increasing as fast as IT engineer & manager jobs and as fast as healthcare openings.

Mining operations can operate directly beside underground warehouses without encroaching on them, even their noise levels being contained by thick stone walls.

Look for businesses to increasingly move underground, because of drastically reduced energy costs and increasing spaces available.

Conspiracy Theory

Springfield Underground in Missouri is rumored to be an end-of-the-world survivalist bunker. It surely contains a lot of packaged and frozen food! Even food manufacturing happens in those limestone caves.

The Underground doubled in size around the time President Barack Obama took office: 2009 and thereafter. Currently, rumors circulate that the tunnels of the  subterranean warehouse site connect to a mega-mansion  in Missouri that may be planning for survivalist and governmental use after a nuclear holocaust.
