Salary and Career News Round Up: Networking Tips for Introverts, Commuter Marriages and New Grads’ Employment Woes
By Marissa Brassfield, PayScale.com
Every Friday we round up the salary trends, career stories and job news that you may have missed during the past week.
- We've been hearing a lot about tech startups lately, but the overall business startup rate in the U.S. dropped to new lows. In the 80s, the national startup rate was 13 perent; in 2006, it fell to 11 percent. Could this drop in new firms have contributed to the slow recovery from the recession?
- It's no secret that new grads will have a tough time finding jobs in this economy, but experts are now citing a new factor that could contribute to youth unemployment and underemployment: the "recession hangover." The Class of 2012 will be competing for jobs against the graduating classes of 2008 and 2009, many of whom have been unemployed since then.
- More and more couples are weathering the economy by working in different states in which they reside. These commuter marriages come with their own costs, however.
- Professional networking often favors extroverts, but these networking tips for introverts can help shy types get ahead without going too far out of their comfort zone.
- Here's a tip for managers and line-level employees alike: Ensure your decisions are commitment with the person you aspire to be. Too often, we make decisions about our work or personal lives that are focused on short-term, tangible accomplishments rather than the things that really matter.
