The Pulse earphone will be available to buy from September this year. The cheaper SoundSport can bought starting today.All of the new wireless headphones support NFC for quick connectivity and voice prompts for caller ID and battery life information. “Until now, great wireless noise cancellation and better wireless workouts have been more of a dream than reality,” said Bernice Cramer, General Manager of Bose Wireless Headphones.  “Like the QuietComfort headphones before them, the performance of the QC30 and QC35 are way ahead of where the market is right now.  And for the millions of people who run, bike, hike or hit the gym, SoundSport headphones offer a new kind of alternative, because they’re not just named for exercise — they’re made for it,” said Cramer.last_img read more

25 Best Jobs In The UK for 2015

first_imgWhether you want a new job, or just want to make sure you already have a great job, Glassdoor has released its inaugural report highlighting the 25 Best Jobs in the UK for 2015.This year, Marketing Manager (#1), Finance Manager (#2) and Mechanical Engineer (#3) stand out as the top three Best Jobs in the UK for 2015. But what other jobs make the list?Want a Job in the U.S.?: If you’ve ever thought about living and working in the U.S., or perhaps you’re already there and want a new job, Glassdoor has also unveiled its inaugural report of the 25 Best Jobs in America for 2015.This new report identifies the 25 best jobs based on each job’s overall Glassdoor Job Score*. The Glassdoor Job Score is determined using three key factors – earning potential based on average annual base salary, career opportunities rating and number of job openings. The jobs that made this list stand out across all three categories.* Methodology: Glassdoor’s 25 Best Jobs in the UK report identifies specific jobs with the highest overall Glassdoor Job Score. The Glassdoor Job Score is determined by weighting three factors equally: earning potential (average annual base salary), career opportunities rating, and number of job openings. Results represent job titles that rate highly among all three categories. The Glassdoor Job Score is based on a 5-point scale (5.0=best job, 1.0=bad job). For a job title to be considered, it must receive at least 25 salary reports and at least 25 career opportunities ratings shared by UK-based employees over the past year (26/01/14–26/01/15). The number of job openings per job title represents the total number of active jobs and/or jobs posted to Glassdoor over the past three months as of 25/01/15. This report takes into account job title normalisation that groups similar job titles.last_img read more

Glassdoor Reveals Employee Pay Data by Gender; Launches Pay Data Analysis Pilot Program

first_imgGlassdoor Company-Wide HighlightsGlassdoor’s employee population is made up of more men (55 percent) than women (45 percent), and women make up 42 percent of our senior leadership, defined as director level and above. Looking at average pay only, women at Glassdoor earn an average of $85,962 base pay, while men earn $107,371 base pay on average— nearly a 20 percent gap. However, when we control for job title, job seniority, department level, and performance scores, the gap reduces to  -$425, a slight female pay advantage, but one that is not statistically significant. The analysis also examined total compensation and bonuses and found no statistically significant adjusted pay gap.Glassdoor Engineering Team HighlightsThe Glassdoor Engineering department is comprised of 21 percent women and 79 percent men, and men in the department earn an average of $2,900 per year more than women in terms of base pay. However, after we control for age, education, years of experience, location, job title and employee performance scores, the pay gap drops to -$3,132— a slight pay advantage for women engineers, but one that is not statistically significant.Glassdoor Supports Other Employers’ Pay Equality EffortsGlassdoor recognizes that conducting pay gap analysis is an involved process, and also announced it is launching a new pilot program to help other companies examine their own pay practices through anonymized and confidential economic analysis. Employers interested in being considered for the pilot program may submit an application here: http://resources.glassdoor.com/glassdoor-pay-data-pilot-program.html and learn more in our Employers blog. Further, employers interested in promoting their equitable pay practices can take the Pay Equality Pledge on Glassdoor, indicating a corporate commitment to pay employees equitably for equal work and experience. More than 2,000 employers have already done so.Employees: Reduce the gender pay gap and submit a salary report and help countless others in their effort to ensure fair pay for equal work. We are excited to continue to shed light on a critical issue and to commit to pay equality. We know there is still a lot of work to be done across the globe to achieve gender parity and equal pay for equal work and experience, and we hope our commitments today inspire other companies to examine their own compensation practices and take steps to close any gaps that might exist.[1] Chamberlain, Andrew. Demystifying the Gender Pay Gap, March 2016: https://www.glassdoor.com/research/studies/gender-pay-gap/ We believe in equal pay for equal work and experience. But, at Glassdoor we don’t want to just talk about it, we want to practice what we preach.  Today, we are proud to release analysis of our own Glassdoor employee pay data. The analysis evaluates pay data of approximately 600 Glassdoor employees along gender lines across the company and among our engineering team. (This announcement coincides with the White House’s United State of Women Summit during which Glassdoor made a commitment to conduct annual compensation analysis to ensure we are paying fairly.)To evaluate Glassdoor’s pay data, we applied the method used by Glassdoor Economic Research in the study Demystifying the Gender Pay Gap[1]. The Glassdoor Economic Research report looks at pay through two lenses: adjusted and unadjusted. An unadjusted method for analysis, in this case, is a simple average of pay data that does not take into account any key factors pertaining to the individuals studied. An adjusted method allows for better comparisons as it takes into account multiple factors such as age, education, years of experience, location – all the way down to the job title and company level. The Glassdoor Economic Research team found that Glassdoor has no statistically significant gender pay gap when adjusting for age, education, years of experience, location, job title and employee performance scores.last_img read more

4 Reasons to Turn Down a Job Offer

first_img 23 hours ago 23h Browse Open Jobs 23 hours ago 23h 2.8★ ICU Registered Nurse Del Sol Medical Center El Paso, TX LCPC – Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor Above and Beyond Family Recovery Center Chicago, IL 23 hours ago 23h Whether you’re new to the workforce or have been plugging away for years, it’s always exciting when a job offer lands in your lap. But before you rush to sign on the dotted line, it pays to consider the drawbacks of saying yes. Here are a few reasons why you might decide to turn down a job offer — even if you previously thought you wanted it.1. It’s a Dead-End RoleNot every position offers a direct path to the top of the corporate chain. But if you have reason to suspect that your offer will land you in a dead-end role, you’d be wise to run the other way. Before you accept an offer, consider the career path the associated job will take you on. Will you learn new skills that help you reach management status? Or will you simply spend your days doing busy work that ultimately doesn’t do a thing for your resume? If you’re dealing with the latter, then consider it a red flag.Another way to tell? Study the professional profiles of folks who have already done the job you’re thinking of doing, and see what their career paths looked like. Did they excel in the years following that role, or did they simply bounce around laterally? Again, you don’t want the latter, or at least not on a long-term basis, so do some digging before signing up for a position that will ultimately make you unhappy.Stop! Don’t Sign That Offer Letter Without Checking For These 10 Things2. The Salary Isn’t Up to ParThough money isn’t everything when it comes to a job, you should take steps to ensure that you’re being paid fairly. So if you do your research and find out that the salary you’re being offered is exceptionally low, you may want to run the other way.Does it pay to negotiate a better number first? In some cases, yes, especially if it’s your dream job and the peripheral benefits, like paid time off and health insurance, are great. But if the number is completely off the charts, and not in your favor, then take it as a sign that you and your would-be employer just aren’t on the same page.3. The Company Culture Doesn’t Mesh With Your PersonalityThough the day-to-day specifics of your job will play a role in dictating your ultimate happiness with it, don’t discount the importance of finding the right company culture. This means that if you’re the laid-back type who prefers to work creatively, you might quickly grow discontent in a buttoned-up, policy-ridden corporate environment. So talk to people who work or have worked for the company that’s offering you a position to see if the environment you’re about to enter will mesh with your personality. And if you find that that’s unlikely to be the case, say no.4. The Company’s Future Is UncertainMaybe you’re being offered a job with tons of mobility, a competitive salary and a company culture that’s just what you’re looking for. That’s all fine and good, but if the company in question has been performing poorly in recent years, and its prospects don’t look positive, then you’re better off declining that offer than signing up to board a sinking ship. Some red flags to look out for when gauging a prospective employer’s viability are dire financials and a history of downsizing. Both point to major problems with the company’s management, which can spell disaster on a long-term basis.It’s always flattering to receive a job offer, but don’t let the fact that a company wants you go to your head. Instead, take your time when considering that offer, and turn it down if any of the above scenarios apply and can’t be resolved. You may be better off sticking out your current job or extending your search and waiting until the right opportunity truly presents itself.This article was originally published on The Motley Fool.

9 Reasons Why You Didn’t Make It Past The First Interview

first_imgYou breezed through the phone screening and your first interview went surprisingly well.But weeks go by and you never hear back. If you do end up getting a rejection email, you’re left staring numbly at an auto-response with too many clichés and not a single explanation of why you didn’t make the cut. And so, the vicious circle continues. How can you improve your interview game when no one is telling you what you’re doing wrong?While there are may be different factors at play, Glassdoor Senior Talent Acquisition Partner Jamie Hichens sheds light on nine red flags that can knock job seekers out after the first interview. 1. You were unprepared.Before speculating on a whole host of things that you could have done wrong, ask yourself honestly if you did everything you could to prepare for the interview. According to Hichens, coming to your first interview unprepared is an immediate red flag. “While some things like personality and culture fit are harder to control, anyone can look up interview questions on Glassdoor, check out the LinkedIn and Twitter profiles of your interviewers, and do a Google deep dive on all aspects of the industry.”“Arriving to your interview at least 10-15 minutes early and bringing extra copies of your resume are also a must,” adds Hichens.We Asked 750 Hiring Managers What Makes a Candidate Irresistible, Here’s What They Said2. You didn’t convey enough passion.The first interview is an incredibly important way for an interviewer to gauge if you are truly interested in working there as opposed to just looking for any old job. That’s why Hichens says it’s “crucial to prepare a solid explanation as to why you are interested in the company and position.” Ask yourself: What first attracted you this company? What about the company’s mission/industry resonates with you? How does this position fit into your professional journey and your career aspirations? Visit the company’s press page and see what big news it’s being featured in. Look up the profiles of key leaders in the company and see if the specific work they are doing inspires you. If you have mutual connections that are company employees, reach out to them and get to know more about why they love working there. “Showing that you have gone above and beyond to make sure this company and position is the one for you will definitely set you apart.”3. You were too passive. Along with preparation and passion, make sure to stay proactive throughout the entire interview process. Interviewers want to see you ‘walk the walk’, and asking insightful questions and sending thank you emails are great ways for you to show them just how interested and responsible you are. Hichens is always impressed when candidates ask interviewers questions that help them better understand the job. Bring a notebook and take notes on their answers. After you finish your first interview, Hichens says it is vital to send a thank you email to your interviews within 24-48 hours.  “Hiring managers always share a candidate’s thank you email with me when they receive one.” Handwritten notes can go far as well, although only as a supplement to thank you emails.What Recruiters Want to See at Each Stage of the Interview Process4. You were too aggressive. If being passive is not your problem, then be wary of having too much of a presence during the interview process. Acting too eager or arrogant will give the interviewer the impression that you are hard to manage. During the interview, your hyper-excited or know-it-all tendencies may compel you to cut the interviewer off mid-question, but avoid interrupting at all costs. It says a lot more if you take a moment to develop a well-thought-out answer with concrete examples. “Avoid saying Like and Um repeatedly,” Hichens further advises. “If you get flustered, take a minute to gather your thoughts and start your answer again.”As for emails, quick response times and occasional follow-ups are a plus, but make sure not to overdo it on the communication, Hichens warns.  “When a candidate overly emails, it’s a turn-off.”5. You failed the first impression.According to Hichens, first impressions are everything. “Eye contact is very important as is a firm handshake. Don’t slouch or cross your arms – you can keep your hands folded on your lap or right in front of you on the table.”As for interview attire, Hichens recommends always dressing a notch up from the dress code (and cleavage is never appropriate).  “Avoid distracters such as large amounts of makeup/jewelry, strong perfume or flashy hair so that the interviewer can truly focus on what you’re saying.” And lastly, always practice proper hygiene protocol.7 Body Language Mistakes That Make A Horrible First Impression6. You didn’t show them you’re here to stay.During the first interview, it’s really critical for an interviewer to assess a candidate’s long-run potential for the position. It’s always a hiring manager’s worst nightmare to invest time and resources on an employee who doesn’t intend on sticking around.  Be prepared to answer questions such as Where do you see yourself in 2/5/10 years?According to Hichens, questions like these “help the interviewer understand what your career aspirations and progression plans are and if that fits into what they can offer you as well as if you’ll stick around long term.”7. You were a poor culture fit.When it comes to personality, different types of companies are looking for different types of candidates.  “For example, at a more formal company (i.e. a bank or law firm) a big personality and sense of humor might not go over as well as it would at an ad agency,” Hichens says. Make sure to do some corporate culture research to see how your social skills fit into the picture. It will save time and energy for both parties involved and help you get closer to the job that is best for you. It’s also important to learn more about the social dynamics of the specific team you are applying for. If your interviewer says that communal efforts are critical to the team’s success, your independent work habits may not be considered a big plus. 8. You had a less-than-positive attitude. Hichens notes that being rude or having a bad attitude can be a huge red flag in the first interview. Avoid badmouthing your current company or manager/peers. Treat everyone you encounter with at the company – whether it be the front desk manager or the CEO – with friendliness and respect. It definitely won’t go unnoticed. Moreover, always be gracious and appreciative of the interviewer’s time, even if you decide halfway through the interview that this isn’t the best position or company fit.  Hichens explains, “Making a positive lasting impression will help you not only in this situation but in the future if you cross paths with these people again, even if you don’t get the job.”9. You arrived late and seemed unenthused.Unless there has been a death in the family or a critical emergency, canceling an interview on the day of is tantamount to saying “I don’t really want this job and I don’t respect you or your time.”If you need to adjust the time or you’re running late, be transparent. “Being late to an interview with no explanation or without emailing or calling ahead to say they are running late. This one will knock out 99% of interviewees,” says Jamie Hichens. Senior Manager of Talent Acquisition at Glassdoor. “At the very least, if you’re running late, call and offer an ETA, an explanation, or an offer to reschedule. And remember to apologize for the inconvenience.” 2.5★ 3.4★ 23 hours ago 23h 5.0★ 23 hours ago 23h N/A Administartive Assistant Sentry Mechanical Pittsburgh, PA Service Advisor Prime Motor Group Saco, ME 4.7★ 23 hours ago 23h Registered Nurse Supervisor RN Waterbury Gardens Nursing and Rehab Waterbury, CT Browse Open Jobs Pest Control Technician United Pest Solutions Seattle, WA LCPC – Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor Above and Beyond Family Recovery Center Chicago, IL Registered Nurse (RN) – Charge Nurse – $7,000 Sign On Bonus EmpRes Healthcare Management Gardnerville, NV 23 hours ago 23hcenter_img 3.1★ 23 hours ago 23h 23 hours ago 23h RN, Registered Nurse – OP Chemotherapy CHRISTUS Health Houston, TX 23 hours ago 23h 4.5★ Interior Designer – St. Louis & Dallas Oculus Saint Louis, MO 23 hours ago 23h 2.8★ 23 hours ago 23h N/A Director, Advanced Technology Policy General Motors United States 3.5★ Deli Associate F&M Deli & Restaurant Mount Laurel, NJ 23 hours ago 23hlast_img read more

7 Tips for Generating News Coverage for your Cause

first_imgNonprofit organizations have learned that they can help with their mission if they maintain a high profile — which of course means a good image — in the public mind.This high profile can be maintained via the media, and Sandra L. Beckwith writes in her book Publicity for Nonprofits that organizations can find creative ways to get their names in the news. Beckwith offers suggestions for creating news:Write and distribute a tip sheet. This is a form of news release that offers tips or advice in a bulleted or numbered format. This allows an organization to share specialized knowledge about a topic.Comment on national headline news. Media outlets are looking for a local angle on a national story in their area. This requires an ability to act quickly.Tap into TV story lines. For example, the NBC television show ER reported that two-thirds of the show’s viewers watch for health information. Knowing this, many local affiliates schedule health news updates for the newscast following the show.Do a survey. Newsworthy survey results are sure-fire publicity starters. The survey topic should relate to the organization’s mission.Create a list. Lists are popular with the media. David Letterman’s “Top Ten List” is reprinted in newspapers.Take advantage of newsworthy seasons and holidays. Each predictable seasonal story brings publicity opportunities.Host a contest or competition. Publicity opportunities exist for announcing the competition, conducting the competition and announcing the winners.
