Tapping Into The Hidden Job Market

Now Hiring: Lehman

From The Wall Street Journal

It’s bankrupt. Its reputation is in tatters. And it has been forced from its plush headquarters building. Yet working for Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. — what remains of it — has become one of the hottest jobs on Wall Street.

…The wages are not great by past standards. But there are hidden benefits. It could take two years or more to wind down the firm. Such a timeline promises the kind of job security that’s a rarity on Wall Street today.

  1. Thousands of Florida Jobs to be Created Through Aviation Investments

    The State of Florida is seeing some investment in its aviation and aerospace industry, which could in turn create thousands of new Florida jobs.

    In July, representatives from Florida participated in the Farnborough International Air Show in England. A record number of 29 firms, economic development organizations, university representatives and airport and aviation authorities participated in the event.

    During the show, a number of Florida firms met with 127 companies from the United States and abroad, resulting in sales of more than $101 million. According to a press release from the State of Florida, the investment by 21 firms is expected to create 2,245 high-tech jobs in Florida’s aviation and aerospace and defense industries.

  2. New Facebook Application

    A new application on the social networking site Facebook is allowing users to seek out companies that match their culture and values.

    The OfficeBook application, created by the three people at Leaders 2020 Inc. who were frustrated by the inability of job seekers to uncover company culture through traditional means of job searching, has begun a fan club of about 500 users on Facebook since its debut last month.

    Users can anonymously express their feelings about a company or research what others have said in order to find the best cultural fit.

    “With over 50 percent of Facebook’s users aged 30+ and seeking useful applications, we decided that OfficeBook should go live there,” co-founder and CEO Sundar Vanchinathan said. “We have been live for one month now and the response has been terrific. Over 960 views from all over the world, about 500 users, and over 6,500 page views.”

    So why is measuring a company’s culture so important for the job seeker?

    “[All three of us] have spent the last 15+ years working in Silicon Valley,” Vanchinathan said. “Over time, we realized that the most productive and successful companies are ones where every employee feels valued for who they are and what they believe in.”
