Au resto, les CV l'assiette. Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation: The Impact of Applicant Age and Generation on Hiring-Related Perceptions and Outcomes. We conducted two studies to explore the impact of identifying a job candidate as either a 60-year-old, Baby Boomer, Gen-Y/Millennial, or 29-year-old on applicant perceptions and hiring-related outcomes.

Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation: The Impact of Applicant Age and Generation on Hiring-Related Perceptions and Outcomes

The first study employed a graduate school sample, whereas the second was conducted 3 years later and employed an MTurk sample that was older, more age diverse, and had more work experience. Across both studies, we found that a target described as an older applicant (60-years-old) was generally perceived to have the lowest levels of motivation and adaptability consistent with Hypothesis 1, whereas the same target was perceived to have the highest levels when described as a Gen-Y/Millennial. More generally, a review of the means suggests that the target was perceived more favorably when described on the basis of his generational membership compared to his age.

Jobs requiring social skills, preparation expected to grow most. Much of U.S. job growth over the past 35 years has been in occupations that require higher levels of education, training and experience, according to a recently released Pew Research Center report.

Jobs requiring social skills, preparation expected to grow most

And based on our analysis of official government job-growth projections, that trend seems likely to continue. Employment in occupations requiring average to above-average levels of preparation – a metric that combines formal education, on-the-job training and prior related experience – is expected to grow 7.9% between 2014 and 2024, according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. That equates to nearly 6 million of the 9.7 million jobs predicted to be added over that time. Employment in occupations requiring below-average preparation, on the other hand, is projected to grow by only 5.1%, or the equivalent of about 3.7 million jobs.

Overquialification, skills and job satisfaciton. Defining “green skills” using data – Skills and Work. By Katharine Mullock.

Defining “green skills” using data – Skills and Work

On Tuesday, the EU joined more than 55 other countries, including China and the United States, in ratifying the Paris climate agreement, thus setting it in motion. Negotiated almost a year ago, the climate deal commits countries to freeze further increases in the global average temperature to “well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels”. By putting pressure on governments to take policy action towards emissions reduction, this type of international climate agreement raises an important skills-related question: will workers have the skills to match the increased demand for “green skills” that such policy action could stimulate?

Interview: Civil service transgender ambassador Jacqui Gavin – "The civil service has changed a hell of a lot in the last 10 years"

My day job is chair of a:gender, a civil-service-wide network for transgender and intersex staff. My role is about going out and working with the network’s membership, policymakers, diversity and inclusion leads, senior civil servants, and also external businesses. In many ways, I think the private sector has gone that much further than the public sector. Large PLCs can throw big budgets at promoting trans issues whereas civil service budgets are tight – and can be non-existent. What is holding back corporates from hiring more women on their boards.
