According to the Unites States Bureau of Labor Statistics, 163,000 jobs were added to the private sector in July. Though this undoubtedly good news, the sudden surge in hiring near the end of July was not enough to offset the unemployment rate significantly. We at Accolo want to stress that there are jobs out there and that the United States’s high rate of unemployment is due, in part, to a hiring problem, that is a failure of communication and networking between companies and prospective workers. Our company has set a goal of filling one million positions in 2013 and economic growth like that in this past month is a heartening sign for the completion of this goal. The link below is an article in the Wall Street Journal and details more specifically the state of hiring and the economy in general.

Though this may seem like an idea that has been thoroughly beaten to death by platitudes and motivational speakers, positive thinking will give you an actual neuro-chemical advantage over consistently negative thinkers. Simply put: your brain will work better.
Read on and see how positive thinking can improve both your career and the rest of your life.

We’re glad to announce the launch of accoloTV – a web video channel that pulls together the most entertaining videos about jobs and employment we can get our job-filling little mitts on.
Take some time this afternoon to blow off that appointment and enjoy a few laughs. It’s almost the weekend, right? Also, if you find some good vids on YouTube you want us to include, just pop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add them to the channel.
One extra-cool bit of technology we developed for accoloTV is an automatic boss monitor that can see over your shoulder and automatically switch to some boring spreadsheet when the higher-ups are about to pounce! (Not really, but wouldn’t that be cool?)

put on your corporate hat, folks
A very smart and thoughtful individual responded to the statement that we need to remember that candidates are not only applicants but customers (among other things). His position was that we shouldn’t set expectations so that applicants feel they should receive the red carpet – and instead the company is the customer and applicants need to compete for “your business” and start selling themselves.
