Workers looking for jobs while on vacation from Tampa jobs?

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Some workers may choose to look for jobs when coming back from vacation to Tampa jobs, according to a recent survey from Monster.com.

A wide majority of respondents (75%) are more likely to search for a new job upon returning from a vacation, with more than half (54%) claiming to be “definitely more likely.”

In 2013, only 37% answered that they are “definitely more likely” to job hunt after a vacation.

In another survey, 73% of respondents said “stress related to the job.” Perhaps most notably, 55% of respondents said they either have or would consider taking work vacation time to look for another job.

Monster asked visitors to its site the question, “Upon returning from holiday, are you more or less likely to look for another job?” and received more than 1,100 responses. U.S. findings included:

54% of respondents are “definitely more likely”
21% of respondents are “probably more likely”
14% of respondents are “probably less likely”
11% of respondents are “definitely less likely”

Company recruits for real estate jobs in Tampa

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

A local company has secured a key hire for real estate jobs in Tampa.

Nicholas Roth has recently joined the company as Vice President of Leasing. He brings knowledge from his 21 years in the commercial real estate business, half of which he has spent working in Florida.

During his career, he has represented both tenants and landlords in the leasing and development of properties throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

Roth has in-house tenant representation expertise in marketing planning, development, and lease/contract negotiation for various types of retail transactions for Office Depot, Yum! Brands (KFC/Taco Bell/Pizza Hut/L.J. Silver’s/A&W), and Einstein Brothers Bagels, as well for Eckerd as a Build-to-Suit Project Manager for the Sembler Company.

“We believe Nick’s expertise, extensive industry relationships and positive energy will be a tremendous asset for RMC’s growing platform of business. We are excited to have Nick on board leading our leasing and marketing team as we continue to grow our platform through development, acquisition, and third-party leasing and management services”, said RMC Chief Real Estate Officer and Chief Financial Officer Bobby Eggleston.

Roth joins RMC from Sandor in Indianapolis, Indiana, where he was its U.S Director of Leasing. In that role, he created an entirely new department structure, and managed the leasing and marketing for an eight million square foot retail and office portfolio across 25 states.

People with Tampa jobs consider salary

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

Those who hold Tampa jobs are debating what they need to earn to feel successful, according to a recent survey from Careerbuilder.

Sixty-five percent of full-time U.S. workers say they do not currently earn their desired salary; 35 percent do.

The percentage of workers who say they earn their desired salary is positively correlated with rising incomes. While a majority of Americans are not satisfied with their current salaries, there does appear to be a tipping point. From the $75,000-$100,000 income range up, a majority of workers say they earn their desired salary.

Additionally, 39 percent of men say they currently earn their desired salary – nine points higher than women (30 percent).

“The survey supports past research suggesting that the $75,000 threshold is particularly significant, as this level allows households in most areas of the country to not only get by, but enjoy an ideal lifestyle and a secure future,” said Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources at CareerBuilder. “Interestingly, what workers would ultimately like to earn does not necessarily factor into what they need for a successful career.”

Despite the fact nearly two-thirds of workers aren’t yet satisfied with their earnings, most feel they can feel successful without earning large paychecks. In fact, more than half (55 percent) said they can feel successful making less than $70,000.

Seventy-eight percent don’t think they need to earn $100,000 or more to be successful. Although, men are nearly two times as likely as women to need $100,000 or more (29 percent versus 15 percent).
