If you’re suspicious that a job ad might be a scam, research the company. Google “Name of Company Scam” and see what comes up. If you conclude the company can’t be trusted, report it. We don’t need more of these clogging up job boards.
How to Decipher Job Ads So You Actually Know What You’re Applying For | Brazen Careerist
Job ads are hard to understand. Different websites have different ways of letting you know whether they are posted through an agency, an employer, or direct marketing. If you see a good job, it may be hard to distinguish whether it’s a great opportunity or too good to be true. Brazen Careerist has made a short primer on determining what type of job you’re applying to by looking at the ad. They covered all the bases, helping job-seekers today. Don’t forget, you could also ask the librarians or valuable employees at the Career Center to help you figure out whether the ad is too good to be true. Ask! We could be located to the left of where you’re sitting (if you are on the Career Center Computers). If not, come to the library and see what services we have to offer.

July jobs report: Hiring picks up, unemployment rises – Aug. 3, 2012.
The government’s monthly jobs report comes from two separate surveys: one that looks at employer payrolls, and the other which questions households. Those two reports went in opposite directions in July, confusing the overall reading on the job market.
Normally, the Jobs report are revised later to give a clearer picture of labor force gains or declines. This is due to the large complex sets of data that need to be fully ‘digested’ in order to truly have a unanimous count of job figures.
While Friday’s report gives us an official count of jobs added, the Private Payroll Services Company ADP had reported two days ago that the economy had added 163,000 jobs. The numbers were close enough to each other to believe that any revision will be minimal.
New York State’s Jobs report will be released soon, giving us a clearer picture of the Labor Market in New York.
Any increase or decrease in the Unemployment Rate affects Unemployment Benefits in New York, as the chart below shows:
** Benefits under EUC Tiers 2, 3 & 4 and under EB are available only when the Total Unemployment Rate (based on a 3-month average) meets required levels.
