Jobs & Homes..Base of our Economy! Top 10 careers for 2014+


Jobs & Homes..Base of our Economy! Top 10 careers for 2014+



Home ownership expands personal liberty, builds communities, and helps Americans create wealth. “The American Dream” is not a stale  slogan. It is the lived reality that expresses the aspirations of all  our people. It means a decent place to live, a safe place to raise   kids, a welcoming place to retire. It bespeaks the quiet pride of those who work hard to shelter their family and, in the process, create  caring neighborhoods. Home ownership is best fostered by a growing  economy with low interest rates, as well as prudent regulation, financial education, and targeted assistance to responsible borrowers.
The S&P Case-Shiller index, which tracks the 20 largest markets in  the nation, showed the biggest year-over-year gain in prices since  June 2006.
"This marks the highest increase since the housing bubble burst," said  David Blitzer, chairman of the index committee at S&P Dow Jones  Indices.

"The market still has a long way to go nationally, but the healing  process -- and a return to a normalized housing market -- is  definitely well underway," said Jim Baird, chief investment officer for  Plante Moran Financial Advisors.
Home prices have been helped in recent months by a number  of factors, including tight inventory of homes available for sale, near  record-low mortgage rates and a drop in homes in foreclosure. A decline in unemployment is also helping the housing recovery.
The housing recovery itself is helping support overall economic growth, as builders scramble to hire workers  to meet the renewed demand. The lift goes beyond the impact of  increased construction on the economy, as the rise in home prices lifts   household wealth.
Rising home prices also reduce the number of people owing more on their  mortgages than their homes are worth. That, in turn, can help them to  refinance those loans at a lower rate, freeing up money to spend on  other goods and services.

TOP 10 HOT CAREERS for 2014+

1. Information technology.  When career site Indeed.com recently analyzed millions of job postings on its web site, researchers found that the fastest-growing category of keywords — including HTML5, Android, mobile app, and social media — were in IT, and a new survey by tech job site Dice.com bears that out: About 65% of hiring managers said they hope to add tech staff in the  first half of 2014. Roughly a quarter of those (27%) said they want to  expand their IT headcount by more than 20%. Openings for software developers who specialize in applications will rise by more than one-third (34%) by 2018, says Best Jobs for the 21st Century, a new book by job market analyst Laurence Shatkin, while companies  will hire 20% more computer systems analysts. Rising pay in these  fields reflects the surge in demand: The Bureau of Labor Statistics  says that developers of systems software, for instance, earn an average of $94,180 per year.  Reinvigorate your ROI!

2. Health care professionals.  Partly due to the aging of the U.S. population, health care has been  hot for a while now, and the trend shows no sign of slowing. Shatkin's  research says the U.S. will need 103,900 more registered nurses every  year (average salary: $64,690) well into the next decade, along with  7,860 new physical therapists per annum (average pay: $76,310). Demand for dental hygienists is up too, with a projected 36.1% growth in job  openings between now and 2018 (average pay: $68,250). One of Silver Professionals fastest growing verticals..RN,NP,PA,Physician and Executive Professional Medical Hiring
3. Health care management and support staff. Don't have the training or experience to work directly with patients? No worries. "People often overlook the fact that business people run health care companies," says Ron Goldstein , principal of recruiting firm Silver Professionals . "With all the change happening in the system now, there is churn as well as growth. We're constantly seeing new openings in general management, finance, marketing, human resources, you name it."...


4. Engineers. Note to college students who want their pick of job offers when they  graduate: Consider majoring in engineering. A whopping 88% of employers  in a new poll by the Society for Human Resource Management bemoaned  the difficulty of finding enough engineers to hire. Civil engineers are   in demand too: Shatkin's analysis of BLS data shows a 24.3% spike  ahead in jobs for people who design roads, bridges, and other  infrastructure projects (average annual pay: $77,560).
5. Industrial skills. Think U.S. manufacturing is moribund? Think again. More than  two-thirds (68%) of employers in the SHRM survey pointed to a shortage  of qualified new hires to replace people retiring from the skilled  trades: electricians, carpenters, welders. Moreover, says Justin Hirsch, "We're seeing an increase in industrial hiring in logistics, supply-chain management, and plant management." As more companies go  global, demand for expertise in logistics -- the art and science of moving stuff efficiently from one place to another -- will continue to  heat up.

6. Life sciences and biotech. Medical innovators  ranging in size from Big Pharma down to biotech startups are on a hiring  binge: Shatkin sees a 40% jump in job openings for research scientists  between now and 2018 (average salary: $76,700). As with health care  companies in general, these employers will also need managers and  support staff (see No. 3).
7. Salespeople. Selling  has historically been the closest thing there is to a recession-proof  career, and this economic downturn is no exception. Since they're the  ones bringing the dough in the door, salespeople are often the first to  be hired and last to get laid off. Almost three-quarters (72%) of  employers in the SHRM survey said they can't get enough salespeople  now.

8. Accounting and finance. Demand for  accountants and finance mavens (particularly forensic accountants and  compliance specialists) has been climbing steadily for the past several  years, and U.S. colleges are still not turning out enough grads in  these fields to fill the available openings. The SHRM survey found that  more than half (54%) of employers would hire more accountants and  finance experts if they could find them. Silver Professionals just launched a new service offering..CFOgurus.com. Blend the tactical approach of a controller +The strategic thinking of a CFO + The Benefits of a CPA outsourced partner

9. Discount retailers.  "Not to mention any specific company names -- everyone knows who they  are, anyway -- but the big national discount store companies have  flourished during this recession," notes Justin Hirsch. "And most of  them are hiring managers as well as in-store personnel."
10. Private equity firms.  Recruiters report that private equity firms are actively seeking  management talent for their portfolio companies "across all industries  and all functional areas," says Hirsch. "They're poaching  already-employed, seasoned managers from big companies -- people who  can step into either a turnaround situation or a pre-IPO company and  make it work. These are challenging jobs, and could be a real feather  in a manager's cap if he or she can bring it off successfully."

10 Big Space-Saving Ideas for Small Kitchens

10 Big Space-Saving Ideas for Small Kitchens

Feeling burned over a small cooking space? These features and strategies can help prevent kitchen meltdowns

 

Just because you don’t have room in your kitchen for a six-burner stove, double-bowl sink or Sub-Zero fridge, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice function or style. Here are 10 ways to max out space in your kitchen, from chic small-scale appliances to innovative storage options and details that make all the difference. We hope at least one of them inspires you.
9. No door. Removing the kitchen door is so easy and helps a small room feel much larger. Better still, have the opening widened or a wall removed. Opening up the kitchen is about more than style — having extra space to move around in will help keep two cooks from bumping into each other quite so much.

10. Make paring back an art form. Keep the best and ditch the rest. Keep only the best knives, your favorite set of glasses, the most adorable teakettle, the most frequently used kitchen tools and so on. Be ruthless about purging clutter. And it wouldn’t hurt to choose clear glass and acrylic for the items you keep on display transparent items make a room feel more spacious.
