Academic Freelancer Woes

Small Business Labs

The PhD Now Comes with Food Stamps is an interesting article on the struggles of adjunct university faculty.

Independent Work Growing Option for Gen Y and Seniors

Small Business Labs

  But as Reuters Older Americans Learn New Trades in Tough Job Market points out, it's not easy to continue working once you approach retirement age or move past it. Because of this situation, we've decided to conduct deeper research dives this summer on millennial and aging boomer/senior independent workers (freelancers, temps, contractors, etc.). The overall job market is obviously weak, but things are particularly tough for younger and older Americans.

On the Outside Looking In

Laughing all the Way to Work

Don’t underestimate the value of temping. Working for a temp agency can either land you a full-time job or help to keep you employed while you are looking. Taking on temp jobs will introduce you to potential employers where you can showcase your abilities.

On the Job by Anita Bruzzese: Being a Hiring Manager Doesn't Give.

On The Job

I always hear that temp work is a good way to get experience, but wonder if HR ever cares about it. Was there anything that I can work on to learn from this experience?" Hire a temp, write a form letter, handover an Excel spreadsheet, and a pile of letter and envelopes.

Office Dynamics

She shared how her working career began back in Iowa, working as a temp worker scanning a seemingly endless supply of documents. All the other temps quit, some after only one day! She became an observer, learning to understand the person she supported, learning their values and thought patterns. When you make a mistake, or something is “off” then learn from it and don’t do it again. Jasmine told us that growth and learning are a continual cycle.
