North Carolina Technology Association Unveils Job Board


Here is some news that many laid off and jobless workers are going to like. North Carolina Technology Association has announced the launch of an interactive job board at its website.

The Job Board is beneficial to individuals specifically looking for technology jobs as well as traditional positions within technology companies. Both members and non-members can use the NCTA Job Board to reach qualified candidates.

For job seekers, NCTA’s Job Board is a free service that provides access to employers and jobs in the technology industry.

Benylin Ad Draws Ire of Businesses

_45337355_fluAs if the current economic state in most parts of the world are not enough, this ad by Benylin, “Take a Benylin Day“, is surely not helping. With most workers now on the crossroads since they would never know if they would be included in the recession bug, giving them excuses and ideas on how to call in sick is certainly not any business owner would want to see advertised.

Benylin’s website says the product is there to “take the guilt out of calling in sick when you need time off to rest and recover”.

“We urge employers and employees alike to take a stand against cold and flu by staying at home, rather than going into work,” it continues.

A word to the employees though. If they are found to be fibbing, their job is theirs to lose. At the rate the people are being laid off these days, the last thing you would want is to slack off.
