50 ways for your staffing company to use Twitter
The Staffing Stream
If your staffing company isn't on Twitter, we're guessing it's because you haven't found any value in it for your company.

The perils of part-time
Human Resource Executive Online
As economic indicators continue to improve, concerns about the real drivers behind the declining U.S. unemployment rate remain a point of contention. In particular, Republican pundits claim far fewer Americans have found full-time work than the White House would have the nation believe, instead settling for one or more part-time jobs to make ends meet. Indeed, shifts in the American economy have led to a significant rise in the number of people accepting part-time employment. Currently, 26.5 million Americans work part-time, up from 23.0 million in 2000 and 20.1 million in 1990, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Nearly 2 million are working two part-time jobs, while 3.6 million are working full-time and moonlighting part-time. Along with the rise in the number of part-time workers has come a chorus of complaints about a number of scheduling practices commonly employed by companies with a large number of part-timers.

US college hiring to increase 8.3 percent
National Association of Colleges and Employers
Employers plan to hire 8.3 percent more new college graduates from the Class of 2015 for their U.S. operations than they did from the Class of 2014, according to NACE’s Job Outlook 2015 report. This year, more than one-quarter of respondents report that they also recruit college graduates for positions outside of the United States. The hiring projection for international positions is expected to increase by 3.2 percent for Class of 2015 graduates. Overall, employers plan to hire 7.5 percent more graduates from the Class of 2015 for both U.S. and international positions than they did from the Class of 2014. In terms of hiring expectations, the largest group of respondents expects to bring in more new college grads than they did last year, closely followed by those who expect to hold their college hiring levels steady. The main reasons employers cited for increasing their college hiring numbers are business need/company growth and to account for anticipated retirements.
