2010-11 Working Mother 100 Best Companies

No one would say that being a working parent is easy. If you have a newborn at home, good luck getting more than a few hours of sleep each night. Once your children are in school and participating in extracurricular activities, you have to pick them up at one place and drop them off at another. Don’t forget the overall pressure of having another human being relying on you for food, shelter and clothing. You have enough responsibilities to make parenting a full-time job without ever having to set foot in an office.
And if no reasonable person would claim the life of a working parent is easy, you probably won’t find anyone who thinks working mothers have had an easy time balancing work and family. Working women have faced an uphill battle for generations and still do. As we’ve pointed out, don’t be an attractive woman who wants a traditionally masculine job or you’ll be sorely disappointed. Progress has a long way to go.
But the situation for working women in 2010 is better than in previous generations, as we have recently noted. As that study explains, 20-something single women are the ones making the greatest financial gains, and experts suspect that this is because many women wait to get married and have children in their 30s and 40s. Essentially, once a woman becomes a mother, her professional life becomes more affected than that of her male counterparts. Each couple decides how it wants to divvy up the daily responsibility, but women still seem to be the ones who leave work to pick up the children from school or who stay home if they get sick.
Realizing that mothers – and women who plan on having children – have extra factors to consider in a job hunt, Working Mother magazine has compiled a list of the best places to work. The Working Mother 100 Best Companies list is based on “work force, compensation, child care, flexibility programs, leave policies” and other factors affecting workplace productivity and culture.
For any worker, especially a working mother, access to on-site child care or the ability to telecommute is important for balancing work and life. Working Mother magazine says that the companies on the list are ahead of most national organizations. For example, only 37 percent of nationwide companies offer health insurance for part-time workers, whereas 100 percent of the companies on the list do.

Family-friendly benefits and programs that help keep working moms’ careers on track have mored forward in the 25 years since the launch of Working Mother’s first Best Companies list. Now Working Mother 100 Best Companies offer programs that help all employees with their struggles to gain some work-life balance. Here’s what we have found.

AT&T Hiring 3,000 and Deutsche Bank Adds 5500 Jobs

AT&T has 3,000 openings for salespeople.

AT&T is so eager to hire great employees like you that its top staffing directors sat down with Shareen Pathak of Sales-Jobs.Fins.com and explained how you can get an edge in applying.
To begin with, the openings are both in retail centers and in the actual business side. AT&T’s approach is for solutions-selling. That is, AT&T requires listeners who can identify the customer’s problem and recommend how it can be solved. This is far more important than simply having technical knowledge. For those it hires, AT&T has extensive training programs. The programs include mobilization for the new smartphones. Therefore, given AT&T’s willingness to develop ability, this opportunity is ideal for new entries to the job market as well as career changers.
 
AT&T recommends you check its career site att.jobs. That will give you a feel for the organization as well as where you can apply for sales positions. After you apply, there is a pre-screening process by phone or online. The next step would be a preemployment test, for which AT&T provides study guides. The actual interview focuses on your accomplishments and failures, including what you learned from the latter.
 

Deutsche Bank Adds 5500 Jobs, Boosts Compensation

Deutsche Bank has gone one better than other financial institutions.  Deutsche Bank not only added to its head count this year by hiring 5500. Unlike other major banks, it didn’t also cut compensation. Instead, reports Kyle Stock in Fins Finance, it boosted it. Deutsche Bank, the German financial institution with branches in the U.S., “has grown its compensation coffers, setting aside $9.6 billion euros to pay its troops in the first nine months of the year.”

How to get into Deutsche is much like the way into any major financial institution. You have to be willing – correct that, eager – to study for licensing examinations such as the Series 6 and Series 7. Even administrators who are removed from the money parts of the business usually are licensed. They might also have passed certification examinations in specifialized areas of the business.

The catch-22 is that to sit for the licensing examinations you usually have to be sponsored by a financial institution. Therefore, you first have to become associated with one. That could include being an independent contractor. The most common ways the ambitious create an association is through applying for a sales position or an entry level one such as teller.
