The most popular jobs in 2019 are likely to be high-paying roles such as cyber security analysts and data scientists, a new study suggests. Research by recruiters Hays indicated that accountants, building surveyors, risk analysts and finance managers will also be in demand in the coming year. The jobs will command above average salaries amid continued shortages of skilled workers, said Hays. Hays said skills shortages look set to influence the hiring agenda for the year ahead after almost all employers (92 per cent) revealed they'd struggled to find workers this year. But it found 76 per cent of employers intend to recruit staff over the next 12 months, compared to 71 per cent last year. These hiring intentions are at a five year high since the survey launched in 2013. Nevertheless, the impact of skills shortages and competition for staff continues to be felt by the workforce, as almost half (49 per cent) of employers say shortages are threatening productivity, while 46 per cent report … [Read more...] about These are the most popular jobs for 2019

Irish citizens faced challenges including rampant house prices, while Ryanair and Irish bank shares hit turbulence. But there were upbeat stories too as Irish food and drink exports surged, writes John Daly in his review of the yearJANUARYThe new year began much as the old year ended, with Brexit and housing dominating the headlines. Average house prices across the State climbed by 8.4% in 2017, following a hefty rise in the previous year. Dublin led the way but other cities were not that far behind. Galway, Cork, and Limerick posted price gains of 8.4%, 7.3%, and 7.4%.A strengthening economy, strong employment growth, and demographic pressures were in play, but the chronic lack of house-building of all types of homes for the previous 10 years would continue to push prices higher.“This is most notable in the established housing markets of Dublin, Cork, Limerick, and Galway, where the supply side pressures are most apparent,” said Sherry FitzGerald group chief economist … [Read more...] about Business review 2018: House prices soar, Ryanair and bank shares fall but food exports surge
Samuel Stebbins 24/7 Wall Street Published 7:30 AM EST Dec 19, 2018 In the United States, 40 hours of work per week is generally considered full-time employment. Though nearly 130 million Americans work full-time, they are compensated differently depending on where they live and what they do. The highest paying jobs in the country tend to be high-skill, high-responsibility positions that typically require education credentials beyond a bachelor’s degree.

“These guys are mad. Call off the invasion. Their system’s going to eat them so we won’t have to. They have these company things that they’re allowing to bust the whole place up. Let’s just sit tight and clean up once they’re done wrecking it.” That’s what an alien might very well say upon looking at the way the titans of the capitalist system have been operating. You want examples? Ten years on from the financial crisis that caused a brutal recession and a lost economic decade from which we have still to fully recover and it isn’t hard to find people who’ll tell you that the banks could easily do it again. Tech giants make money from people taking out ads that are designed to corrupt democratic elections, while other companies wreck the environment. Meanwhile, the carnival of corporate scandal adds a new float every few months. Yet according to the Nobel prize-winning economist Milton Friedman, whose influence … [Read more...] about Do businesses have ethical responsibilities as stakeholders in society?
