The way we find jobs is changing.
Employers say they plan to hire 11% more fresh college graduates for U.S. jobs this year than last, according to a new survey.
While there certainly are more than these, Monster.com put together a list of five questions that aren’t legal to ask during a job interview. Recruiters take note:
For example, it’s illegal to ask any questions related to protected classes, says Charles A. Krugel, an HR attorney. “Protected classes typically include race, gender, nationality, religion, military status and age (40 and up). Usually, such questions are intended to identify those class members. More often than not, it’s ‘loaded’ questions that are asked, or those where it’s fairly obvious that the asker has a hidden agenda and the question has little to do with the job’s essential duties.”
Some examples of these questions include,”I notice that you live in Brookfield, there’s some nice country clubs and retirement communities there — are you a member of any of them?” and “If you need to commute to work, how would you do that?” The first question can relate to socioeconomic status, gender, race, religion and age, Krugel says., while the second may be looking for information on socioeconomic status and race.
These may be obvious to some, but it’s surprising how many people make inappropriate and derogatory statements when they’re being interviewed.

So, technology lobby, Engine Advocacy, and the Bay Area Council Economic Institute, are here to inform and dazzle you with multi-colored graphs (plus some egregious copy and pasting on our part) [PDF].

It is no surprise that almost every job is posted online, that is why finding a good website that offers comprehensive information is one of the first major tools to land a job.
Some websites are limited to just lists of job openings and are simply formatted. When you are doing your job hunt, look for websites that offer career trends, suggestions of what you can do with your current skills and how to translate them into the new position that you desire.
Signed into law on Monday, this bill provides help for veterans as well as tax incentives and credits for employers:
The bill provides double the tax incentives for companies who hire disabled veterans and repeals a 2006 law that, as of 2012, would have required federal, state, and local governments to withhold three percent of payments to contractors.
Mr. Obama also announced a series of executive actions aimed at providing unemployed veterans with the resources to find jobs – including a jobs bank, employment counseling and online resources allowing veterans to explore their employment options.
