Find Work Wednesday: Looking for a Dynamic Career?

Posted on Updated on

 

Employers and search engines frequently use the word “dynamic” in referring to their company, the  jobs they offer and the type of employees they want to hire.  In fact, to a seasoned job hunter, we can often become immune to that word, skimming passed it without really considering what that word offers to a job description or a resume.

The definition of “dynamic” means, essentially, something that is marked by continually and productive activity or change, the driving or energizing force involved in a process of change, the ability to get things going and get things done — which, maybe, is why so many companies use the word in describing their company and available jobs.   Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?

The thing with being dynamic – either as a company, as a job seeker or as a career – is that we can find that, or be that, in virtually every aspect of our lives and in every job we do.  A dynamic career is one that moves forward , that evolves, that innovates , that exacts change – whether that change is social, political, technological, procedural or simply moving the mission and goals of a company forward.

This week’s Find Work Wednesday focuses on General Dynamics and careers that focus on being a change agent in the workplace.  General Dynamics is a market leader in business aviation; land and expeditionary combat vehicles and systems, armaments, and munitions; shipbuilding and marine systems; and mission-critical information systems and technologies. They are the force behind many of the technologies and equipment that keep our spouses safe on the front lines.  And, if ever there was a reason to be
“dynamic,” I can’t think of a better one that that.

All of this week’s Find Work Wednesday positions and thousands of other positions for military affiliated applicants can be found at our Job Seeker’s page. The first five opportunities can be found by clicking on “Search for Openings with MSCCN”. The remaining jobs can be found by clicking on “Search for Job Openings with National Labor Exchange”.

Find Work Wednesday – Work from Home Edition

Posted on Updated on

We’ve all had the thought – on those days when the babysitter bails, our hair refuses to cooperate, our “fat pants” don’t fit and we are stuck in traffic for an extra 45 minutes of an already tedious commute – “Wouldn’t it be great to work from home?”

With today’s advancing technology like virtual offices, go to meeting software, email, instant messaging, call forwarding , voice mail, etc., more and more companies are embracing the concept of a “virtual workplace”.  The ability to work from home is an increasing trend among companies that want to offer flexibility to their employees and increase their bottom line.

While there can be some drawbacks to working from home and not all “work from home” companies are created equal, there can be many advantages as well:  more hours spent at home with family, cost savings on expenses like gas, wardrobe, meals out and child care (if you can arrange your schedule to work when the kids are in school or after they go to bed), and even certain tax breaks for working from home.  And, let’s face it, who doesn’t love the idea of a 15 second commute to work?

So, this “Find Work Wednesday” edition focuses on careers you can do from the comfort of your own home – fuzzy slippers and all. All of this week’s Find Work Wednesday positions and thousands of other positions for military-affiliated candidates can be found at our Job Seeker’s page. The first opportunity can be
found by clicking on “Search for Openings with MSCCN”. The remaining jobs can be found by clicking on “Search for Job Openings with DirectEmployers Association”.

Find Work Wednesday: You Can Do What, Where?

Posted on Updated on

Traditionally when we think of working in an industry, we think of only the primary jobs involved with the specific industry.  In the banking industry for example,  you think of bank tellers, loan officers, stock brokers, financial advisors; you get the picture, right?  But in each industry you need a host of additional support to help that organization run, in banking you need IT to
keep the online banking system running smoothly.  So this week’s focus will be jobs not traditionally associated with that industry.

The purpose of this week’s find work Wednesday is to challenge job seekers to think outside of the box.  Sometimes when we want a specific position we only look in that industry and when it isn’t available we give up.  What if that position was available  somewhere else?  What if it just took a little extra research?  Would you feel like you gave up on your dream job to soon?

All of this week’s Find Work Wednesday positions and thousands of other positions for military spouses can
be found at our Job Seeker’s page. The first four opportunities can be found by clicking on “Search for Openings with MSCCN”. The remaining jobs can be found by clicking on “Search for Job Openings with JobCentral National Labor
