What's happened to outsourcing?
Have you noticed that there aren't as many press releases about new outsourcing contracts being signed these days? Some people would argue that this is a sign that outsourcing was a fad that has run its course--I would disagree. The sourcing industry is going through some significant structural adjustments and my expectation is that it will emerge stronger than ever. (ZDNetAsia)

New grads are already gurus at e-commerce
ASU alums have 2 sites and a 3rd on the way
Amy BaldwinJon West and Chad Ledford, high school friends and May grads from Appalachian State University, never wanted to work for anyone but themselves.

Getting The Most From Your Advertising Dollars
You now have that website up and running. You have a great product. You are all set to start taking orders and making those trips to the bank to make deposits! And then you wait, and wait, and wait some more! Unless someone can find your site, you will have a very long wait! That is where the value and benefit of advertising comes in. Advertising is what brings potential customers into your "virtual business door". As a business owner, every dollar you spend is a dollar right out of your pocket. This affects your profit margin and revenues. This can be especially difficult if it comes at a time when you're trying to grow your business. If you're going to succeed, you have to pay close attention to your bottom line and look for creative, innovative ways to cut costs while still getting what you need.
That old saying that it "takes money to make money" has never been truer than when it comes to promoting your business. And when it comes to spending money on advertising, how do you make sure that your advertising is working hard enough, without spending a fortune that consumes all your profits or even worse money that far exceeds your business revenues? Thanks to the Internet, you've got lots of options for finding cost-effective advertising that does what it's supposed to -- bring targeted customers who are hungry for what you're selling, right to your door. But don't forget about cost-effective offline methods as well. Here are a few ideas to help you get started: (Market Day)

Employment Fleeting For `Just-In-Time' Workforce
Thirty years ago, "just-in-time delivery" of parts was embraced by U.S. manufacturers as a cost-cutting and efficiency-enhancing business practice. Today, "just-in-time delivery" is as likely to refer to people.  The use of a just-in-time workforce has fractured workers' voices into many parts.  Economists' definitions vary as to what constitutes the just-in-time workforce. They are called, among other labels: part-time, temporary, permatemp, independent, contract, on-call, free agent, free-lance, day labor, contingent and nonstandard. (Courant)

For some years it has been reported that employees in the United States experienced widespread, substantial declines in job security or stability over the past several decades. However, new data indicates that there is little empirical evidence to support this claim, says Ann Huff Stevens in a National Bureau of Economic Research Working Paper.

Deep Release:
Entry Level Employers Plan to Increase Hiring in 2007

Class is Back in Session and It's a Great Time for Job Searching
As the class of 2007 enters the Fall semester,, the #1 entry level job site previews entry level hiring trends for this year's graduating class. And it's going to be a great year for the Class of 2007.

According to a recent survey by, 55% of entry level employers are planning to hire more college grads in 2007 than they hired in 2005. Another 35% of employers are planning to hire at the same level in 2007, many of whom already increased their hiring in 2006. Only 10% of employers expect their hiring to be less in 2007. "This is shaping up to be a great year for college recruiting," said Brian Krueger, President of "The hiring increase that we're seeing is consistent throughout the nation and across all majors."

Why the increase? Employers are singing the praises of college grads. "The talent we find on college campuses is a terrific way to bring an influx of energy and enthusiasm into our business," said Rachel Koenig, National Manager of Recruiting & Development for ConsolidatedGraphics.

Other employers cite an aging workforce and are anticipating an increase in retirement. The Class of 2007 should expect to see an attractive entry level hiring market in the coming year.

As entry level employers are gearing up for a busy 2007 recruiting year, upcoming college grads should begin their job searching now.

Krueger recommends that college students start their job search early. "Many top employers are already hiring for next year. The earlier you start, the greater the number of opportunities that will be available to you."

College grad hiring saw a 7.8% increase in 2006 over 2005, according to the Top Entry Level Employers Survey. "While 2007 number are yet to be determined," said Krueger, "we're looking forward to another very positive growth year for entry level hiring. will again be conducting its annual Top Entry Level Employers survey that will further outline 2007 entry level hiring trends.

U.S. Labor Department Issues Fifth Annual Report on Child Labor In Trade Beneficiary Countries
Report Required Under the Trade and Development Act

The Labor Department released its fifth annual report on the worst forms of child labor in 137 countries and territories that receive U.S. trade benefits.

"The United States believes that all people can benefit from the opportunities created by free trade and globalization," said James Carter, deputy undersecretary for international labor affairs for the U.S. Department of Labor. "Yet a free market can only operate efficiently when it is supported by protections for workers, including protections from the worst forms of child labor."

The department's Bureau of International Labor Affairs prepared The Department of Labor's 2005 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor under the child labor reporting requirement of the Trade and Development Act of 2000. The act requires trade-beneficiary countries and territories to implement their international commitments to eliminate the worst forms of child labor.

As defined by International Labor Organization Convention 182, the worst forms of child labor include any form of slavery, such as forced or indentured child labor; the trafficking of children and the forced recruitment of children for use in armed conflict; child prostitution and pornography; the use of children for illicit activities in particular the trafficking of drugs; and work that is likely to harm the health, safety or morals of children.

The report presents information on the nature and extent of the problem in each of these 137 countries and territories and the efforts being made by their governments to eliminate the worst forms of child labor.

The bureau's International Child Labor Program collected data from a wide variety of sources, including U.S. embassies and consulates, foreign governments, nongovernmental organizations, and international agencies. In addition, bureau staff conducted field visits to certain countries covered in the report.

The report is available at . Beginning November 2006, printed copies of the report will be available from the International Child Labor Program, Bureau of International Labor Affairs, U.S. Department of Labor, Room S-5307, 200 Constitution Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20210.
