5 ways you can secure talent in today’s competitive job market

Today’s job marketplace is more competitive than ever — not for employees, but for employers. Nearly every industry is struggling to fill in-demand positions. In fact, in 2022, there have been an average of 11 million U.S. job openings every month, but only about six million candidates looking for work, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Job Openings and Labor Turnover (JOLT) monthly reports.

Rather than seeing the glass as half empty, some experts advise employers to view the current environment as an opportunity to improve their hiring processes; for example, by promoting their company’s positive attributes and realigning its priorities with what today’s workforce wants from an employer.

As the semiconductor industry grows, how is it managing sustainability?

 

Attendees at the U.N. climate conference, COP27 Summit, which will be held on November 6 to 18 in Egypt have many topics to discuss, from financing the transition to clean energy to protecting the world's forests and future-proofing its cities. Another important topic is achieving sustainability in the semiconductor industry. 

At a time when there is a push to expand semiconductor production, there is also a focus on making the industry greener. A 2020 study by Harvard researchers on the energy costs of computing found that chip manufacturing “accounts for most of the carbon output attributable to hardware systems.”

Are Autonomous Vehicles Coming Soon?

At the 1939 World’s Fair, General Motors demonstrated the world’s first self-driving car. It was an electric vehicle guided by radio-controlled electromagnetic fields and operated from magnetized metal spikes embedded in the roadway.

Just over 80 years later, the concept has evolved, although not to the point of filling our highways with autonomous vehicles— yet, at least. In 2018, ABI Research predicted that could change by 2025. It stated that, there will be approximately eight million autonomous vehicles on the roads by then. But we’re likely still a long way from that number. First, the technology must catch up.
