What is a Job Personality?

Job Personality — A set of beliefs, attitudes, values, behaviors, talents, and skills that go into determining what kind of work is best suited to you, which work you will enjoy, and what type of work will be the most productive for your employer and yourSelf.

It is what you do at work that makes you happy and makes you most productive at the same time.

You need to have certain values and motivating factors met on the job for it to be worthwhile for you to do and to produce good results. It is all part of your whole, integrated Self, the total YOU that is very important.

How to Change an Internship Into Full-Time Employment and a Career 

  • Working hard,
  • Taking notes in an employment portfolio,
  • Showing good appearance and manners,
  • Being productive and cooperative,
  • Showing initiative at the most appropriate times, and
  • Becoming more visible as a good employee —

.

These are behaviors that lead a student or adult intern from the internship to full-time employment – right?  Unfortunately, not always.

All these items can help make your internship experience good enough to lead to an off of a job that can be the foundation for a career offer, but this does not always the case. 

Some employers use government-subsidized interns during a few months each year and do not  hire them full-time after completion. Other internships turn out to be part-time temporary summer jobs.  However, America is home to employers that maintain well-developed, ongoing internship programs that do lead to full-time work. Access the link above for the list and some other good ideas.

You’ll find the best US States that need new workers and have new jobs in that article. The most quickly growing job clusters are in the Technologies, like healthcare, aerospace, and engineering; Healthcare Professions; and even Truck Driving – a million jobs coast to coast in February 2015.

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.

Some people enjoy bargain shopping and discount coupons. It’s fun!

Others like to save money they can use for other necessities, luxuries, and emergencies. That’s a good reason to bargain shop in the 2010’s – especially with national economic worries.

Still other people bargain shop because they cannot afford retail prices in grocery, clothing, restaurants, and other retail places – especailly upscale establishments.

I think all bargain shoppers can enjoy bargain hunting, even those that MUST save money to make ends meet. It should not be a mark of poverty.

Let’s acknowledge that our country produces and imports some cheaply made goods at both low and high prices. Avoid  both types. 

If consumers can resist Madison Avenue and media advertisements that urge and even trick them into spending money best used elsewhere, then they have a victory. Look a the article below for links to regional bargains and tips for finding even more in your own town.
