Who is Hiring This Week

May 30 - June 5,  2011.  Apply Now ...

We know that your job search can become very frustrating these days with more people trying to find a job and fewer job opportunities available.

To ease the burden, we tracked 10 leading companies with job openings this week finance to sales jobs, marketing to technical/engineering jobs and full time to part-time job. We hope you find the right/suitable job for you. 

01. Aflac

The company was founded in 1955 by brothers John, Paul, and Bill Amos. In 1964 the company pioneered the concept of "cluster-selling" insurance, where sales agents would go to corporate offices to give groups of workers insurance presentations, as opposed to presenting each person individually.

Now that Aflac has found a new voice for their iconic duck mascot, they're looking to hire thousands of sales agents. Although sales agents are independent (and therefore not actually employees of Aflac), there are corporate positions open as well.

Employee Review: Great product that provides piece of mind. This is an easy sell if you point out why there is such a need for it. Nice incentives, but the bar is set high.*

  1. Why are there never any creative job listings?
    Between Lifetouch and The
    There are rarely any true editorial or commercial photography jobs available to qualified photographers like myself with over 12 years experience who may be ready to make a move from being and independent photographer to a staff/in house photographer.
    Preferred companies, Travel Channel, Nat Geo, Getty, Reuters, AP

  2. What about writer positions. I'm a freelance writer and wouldn't mind switching to a staff writer position, if one such job was offered to me. So far, all the leads were in finance and IT, although I do have experience in these areas as well. My preference is in writing, especially technical writing and copywriting.

  3. hhusted.... your expertise is in technical writing? I heard there is a lt of companies and organization that need your experience. Do you market yourself? Do you have "Technical Communications" as well or Visual Com. Design?

  4. This comment has been removed by the author.

  5. I second the desire for writing and creative jobs. Having helped numerous companies with their ad campaigns over the years, as well as winning various creative awards, one would hope for a larger market for creatively converting readers/viewers into buyers.

    Speaking of creative use of words, funny how this site is titled "careers-builder"...obviously to build off the success of the more famous!

  6. If you think it is frustrating to get noticed when you have identifiable writing credentials, try prospecting for a writing position based on writing ability and 30 years of work using technical manuals. Perhaps it is an idealist's lament, but being able to create seems to be based upon having an education not on provable results of having created. I can tell you from experience that there are a lot of very well "educated" people who are creating some very dumb technical documents.
