Why is it important to study Trends?

Are you aware of the employment trends in your city or county? How many people are applying for the same jobs in your area? What challenges are they experiencing that perhaps you share? Is your profession becoming obsolete or should you take comfort in knowing that your marketable skills will be viable decades from now? If knowledge is power, then knowing what trends to follow will favorably position you within the employment market. When you participate in a NEC survey, your input helps your community with knowledge of employment trends in your area, as you, yourself, gain access to the results of that survey.

Questions and Answers

Why should you care?
Extended unemployment stems from a variety of causes. When technological advancements fall ahead of laws that are normally present to benefit society and empower social functions, new strategies to cope with change limit individual rights. As some strategies help improve the way members of the workforce connect with employers, others limit them. You should care about trends since extended unemployment affects your City, County and the State you reside and new legislature is now needed to address issues stemming from the worldwide web's affect on unemployment.

What laws is NEC currently working on?
Employers are eager to employ the most qualified people in their community. They are motivated to possess a diverse workforce with the skills they need and capable of integrating themselves into the organizations' culture. Yet, this becomes a challenge when online screening systems (Talent Management Softwares) prescreen fully qualified applicants before the hiring manager has had an opportunity to meet them in-person. For instance, questions used to screen out candidates, prior to an interview create an unfair playing field for all applicants. An applicant who is flexible on compensation may answer the salary question by stating a number too high or too low and consequently be screened out of the process. As a result, some applicants with precisely the skills employers need remain unemployed for years influencing their communities economics. View examples
