More Whites Believe ‘Reverse Racism’ Is Costing Them Jobs

Whether you’re in a minority or a majority, it seems that here in America we all feel discriminated against. A recent study conducted at a couple of very prestigious schools found that now whites believe they have replaced blacks as the primary victims of racial discrimination in America. This is mostly exhibited in the workplace, they say, but many believe it can be found in legal, social and educational situations as well.
The study, conducted by researchers at Tufts University’s School of Arts and Sciences and Harvard Business School, shows that America has not achieved the “post-racial” society that some predicted in the wake of Barack Obama’s election, according to the authors of the study.
At least whites and blacks agree on one thing: Both feel that anti-black racism has decreased over the last 60 years. However, whites believe that anti-white racism has increased and is now a bigger problem than anti-black racism.
“It’s a pretty surprising finding when you think of the wide range of disparities that still exist in society, most of which show black Americans with worse outcomes than whites in areas such as income, homeownership, health and employment,” said Tufts Associate Professor of Psychology Samuel Sommers, Ph.D. He’s co-author with Michael I. Norton of Harvard of the article, “Whites See Racism as a Zero-Sum Game That They Are Now Losing,” which appears in the May 2011 issue of the journal Perspectives on Psychological Science.
Researchers were surprised to find that whites believed that racism against whites has increased significantly as racism against blacks has decreased. On average, whites rated anti-white bias as more prevalent in the 2000s than anti-black bias by more than a full point on the 10-point scale. Moreover, some 11 percent of whites gave anti-white bias the maximum rating of 10 compared to only 2 percent of whites who rated anti-black bias a 10. Blacks, however, reported only a modest increase in their perceptions of “reverse racism.”
“These data are the first to demonstrate that not only do whites think more progress has been made toward equality than do blacks, but whites also now believe that this progress is linked to a new inequality — at their expense,” note Norton and Sommers. Whites see racial equality as a zero-sum game, in which gains for one group mean losses for the other.
Although these findings might take some by surprise, you can find hints of it in the U.S. legal system. The authors of the survey note that claims of so-called reverse racism, while not new, have been at the core of an increasing number of high-profile Supreme Court cases.

Fast Company’s Top 100 Creative Business Geniuses

What does it take to be named among the Top 100 most creative people in business today? In examining the latest list issued today by Fast Company it appears agility and the ability to think in new and innovative ways are prized attributes.

1. Wadah Khanfar
Topping the list is Wadah Khanfar, director general of the Arab news service Al Jazeera, which turned to Twitter, the 140-word social-media instant-messaging service, to disseminate news after President Hosni Mubarak jammed the network’s satellite signal and prevented most Egyptians from watching the channels coverage. Khanfar’s efforts in building an international news network that deploys both cutting-edge social media and old-fashioned reporting has empowered the people of the Middle East, Fast Company says.
Choosing Khanfar, ahead of innovative leaders at Apple Inc. (Scott Forstall, No. 2) and Google (Sebastian Thrun, No. 5), is a testament to the Al Jazeera editorial director’s unorthodox approach to news, Fast Company executive editor Rick Tetzeli tells Reuters.
“He had done something over the last year that was very current, very public and really astounding when looked at by an American audience that doesn’t get to see what he does much on television,” Tetzeli says.


2. Scott Forstall
As senior vice president of iPhone software at electronic-gadget maker Apple, Scott Forstall is the chief architect of iOS, the industry-defining operating system that runs on more than 160 million iPhones, iPads and iPods. The company’s slick designs may grab the headlines whenever Steve Jobs introduces a new product, Fast Company says, but it’s Forstall’s smart software that fills Apple’s coffers.


3. Yuri Milner
Russian venture-capitalist Yuri Milner has done a lot of things right in the word of business, namely founding Mail.ru Group, the largest Internet company in the Russian-speaking world. He then put his money behind American up-and-comers Zynga, Facebook, and Groupon and has invested in a fund to help new-technology start-ups.


4. Jack Dorsey
Dorsey is in the forefront of helping people communicate and make paying for things both inventive and easier. Dorsey, executive chairman at Twitter, is also CEO of Square, a new service that let’s anybody accept credit-card payments with their iPhones. “Payments are a form of communication that could be better designed, less burdensome,” Dorsey says.


5. Sebastian Thrun
Having lost both a childhood friend when he was a child and a co-worker last year, Google’s Sebastian Thrun has taken on a personal mission to end deaths caused by vehicle accidents. Both crashes were avoidable, Thrun says, which is why he’s developing unmanned robotic cars that drive more safely. “I’m in service of humanity,” he says.


6. Guo Pei
Of all the products and services emerging from China, high fashion isn’t the first thing to come to mind. But designer Guo Pei wants to change that. The 44-year-old visionary has since blazed a trail, building her Rose Studio into a fashion powerhouse.


7. Sal Khan
Kids in U.S. classrooms have long struggled with the basics of math, and Sal Khan is making learning dividing fractions and other computations easier by turning mathematics into a game. Students learn to solve problems at their own pace, using a computer program that gives them instant feedback, charts their progress and rewards them when they get 10 correct answers in a row. Khan says his nonprofit Khan Academy‘s mission is “to deliver a world-class education to anyone anywhere.” And he’s got the backing of some of the richest donors in the world, such as Bill Gates.


8. Conan O’Brien
Yes, he got fired from “The Tonight Show” in a rather ugly and very public falling out with Jay Leno and NBC, but Conan O’Brien is on the comeback trail, having created a nightly comedy show on cable network TBS. Though the network’s budget isn’t quite as ample as other cable networks (namely, HBO), O’Brien has proven during the past seven months since his show debuted that he can draw younger viewers than his broadcast rivals, thanks largely to his smart comedy.


9. Jim Yong Kim
Frustrated by poorly executed health-care delivery systems in developing nations, Jim Yong Kim began an initiative at Dartmouth College to study the best health systems and practices. Kim, president of the New Hampshire-based university, believes the initiatives could improve health-care quality and lower costs as much as 30 percent.


10. Arianna Huffington
The $315 million merger earlier this year of AOL and the Huffington Post raised a lot of eyebrows across the media landscape. The resulting company — the Huffington Post Media Group — is run by Arianna Huffington, who leads a group of 1,300 journalists who write and report for the company’s numerous websites (including AOL Jobs). The merger and Huffington’s extensive network of powerful people, Fast Company says, may be just the thing for Huffington, who believes in “‘the power of using narrative to connect with people.'”

15 Jobs that Pay $70,000 per year

High salaries have a nasty stigma attached them. One that reeks of years of school, advanced qualifications, extensive training and many years of experience, which some people just don’t have. While these are in fact requirements of some high-figure salaries, they aren’t a prerequisite for all of them. 
What many workers don’t know is that there are numerous jobs that pay well above the average full-time worker’s salary of $33,634* that don’t require a Ph.D. or at least 10 years experience.

How Are Mac & PC People Different? [Very Popular and Informative INFOGRAPHIC]

In an infographic that’s bound to cause arguments and perhaps fistfights, researchers at Hunch placed data from about 700,000 of its website visitors onto a deep illustration that shows just how different users of Macs and PCs are.
They came up with interesting correlations between users’ chosen computing platforms and their demographics and personalities, as well as tastes in food, fashion and media.
Did it sort out like a comparison between Tea Party members and liberals? Are PC users geeks and Mac users hipsters, in keeping with common stereotypes? Almost. Mac users are more educated, eat more hummus, prefer modern art over impressionist art, and are 21% more likely than PC users to say that two random people are more alike than different.
Dive into the infographic below (feel free to click the graphic for an enlargement), full of insights and data, drawn from a huge sample. Of course, there are exceptions to every trend. Please let us know in the comments if you think its data is accurate or not.

Jobs with High Average Starting Salaries

In many careers, you start at the bottom rung and work for peanuts, in hopes of slowly moving up to a real paycheck. But some occupations skip the suffering and you earn a solid average starting salary on day one.

Jobs that pay well immediately can be found in a wide range of industries. Some require extensive education, some almost none. Here’s a look at a variety of jobs where you can earn well from the start:

Prosthodontist ($90,507). Installing fake teeth is one of the top-earning jobs in the first year of work, says career expert Laurence Shatkin, author of 250 Best-Paying Jobs. Four years at dental school plus additional advanced dental training are required, the Bureau of Labor Statistics notes.

Education administrators (elementary and secondary school) ($63,249). Who knew managing the schoolyard could pay such a high starting salary? Most administrators have been teachers, and position themselves to move up by earning a master’s or Ph.D. degree, Shatkin says.

Financial managers ($53,071). Financial managers handle companies’ toughest problems, Shatkin says – paying back loans, preparing financial statements, developing cash-management plans, and advising on investment of company cash. The BLS notes about one-third of financial managers work in the insurance or financial industries.

Detectives and Criminal Investigators ($48,158). Law-and-order types may find this job appealing. The BLS says many get into the field from a related occupation such as correctional officer or beat cop. Advances in technology have made this career more interesting, says Debra Yergen, author of the Creating Job Security Resource Guide. “You’re part scientist, part minister, part counselor.”

Elevator mechanic ($48,752). When elevators break down with people inside, there’s no putting off calling for a repair crew, so this is one construction-related job that’s stayed busy. The outlook is positive too: “As cities increase in population, the only way to build is up,” says Yergen, “and that means more elevators per square mile.” Training is usually on-the-job, though some enter through vocational programs in industrial mechanics or maintenance technology.

Commercial diver ($45,824). Talk about getting out of the office. Professional divers may do repair or welding work on structures such as offshore oil derricks, photograph marine life or conduct tests. A short training course gets you ready to dive.

“There’s usually a specialization within the field, like demolition or ironwork,” says Shatkin.

Gaming manager ($41,818). Casinos are booming, and Yergen notes, “This is one field where your communication skills are far more important than your level of education. You need active listening skills, critical thinking abilities and to be able to offer great customer service.” Training is usually on-the-job, while workers are already earning a high average starting salaries.

Mathematician ($58,500). The education requirements for math-related jobs are lengthy – most working mathematicians have a Ph.D., though the BLS reports federal agencies may start you with just a bachelor’s degree. Shatkin says one of the largest employers of mathematicians is the National Security Agency, which needs the help of math whizzes to develop algorithms for creating codes and decrypting coded messages.

How to Find a Job: 10 Big Companies Hiring

With the US economy at long last gaining some traction, big companies that had all but halted hiring in the past few years seem to be coming back in a big way by adding thousands of jobs. Businesses posted 3.1 million job openings in February, according to data released by the Labor Department today, the largest number of openings posted since September 2008.
McDonald’s, Intel, Google are three of the 10 companies featured by online publication 24/7 Wall Street in a study of companies that are hiring this year.
The study by the publication and employment consulting firm Challenger Gray & Christmas analyzed data from the past year to create this list of companies that are adding the most jobs.
“We’re going to continue to see this gradual up tick [in hiring],” says Doug Arms, a senior vice president at 
Ajilon Professional Staffing.
There were about 4.4 unemployed people for each available job in February, down from a peak of nearly seven in July 2009, according to data from the Labor Department. During more normal economic times there are about 1.5 to 2.5 unemployed people per available job.
As the economy rumbles along, companies are expected to remain both cautious and steady with hiring practices. “I think you’re going to find many companies continue to use project, temporary or contract workers as strategic alternatives for hiring,” says Arms. The temporary or contract positions, he adds, could offer “an unbelievable pathway to fulltime work.”
Take a look at the top ten companies hiring:
1. Home Depot Increase: 60,000
The building supply company is gearing up for its booming sales season by adding seasonal and full-time employees. “As we have stated in the past, spring is our Christmas and traffic is at its highest during this season,” said Craig Menear, executive vice president for Merchandising. “Hiring seasonal associates and offering door busting deals will ensure our customers have all of the service, know-how and value they need as they look to take on outdoor projects to improve the appearance of their home.”
 
2 McDonald’s Increase: 50,000
The fast-food company will begin its new campaign to redefine the “McJob” by hiring thousands of workers in positions that range from entry level to management. “The beautiful thing is that with McDonald’s you can take your career where you want it to go,” said Ashlee Yingling, a McDonald’s spokeswoman told ABC News. The company typically pays workers anywhere from around $8 an hour to $50,000 a year.
3 Lowes Increase: 10,000 In January, the company announced plans to add 8,000 to 10,000 to hourly and part-time jobs, mostly on weekends. At the same time, the home improvement retailer is dumping 1,700 middle management jobs.
 
4 Ford Increase: 7,000
The company announced it will add 7,000 hourly and salaried positions over the next year in positions ranging from engineering to manufacturing. “Ford is committed to American manufacturing, and we are on a path to add more than 7,000 American workers over the next two years as we continue to grow our product lineup,” said Mark Fields, Ford president of The Americas.
5 Google Increase: 6,200 

Earlier this year, the internet search giant announced plans to boost its workforce by about 25 percent. The news came as one of its biggest competitors, Yahoo, began laying-off long-time staffers. “At this stage, the number of opportunities just vastly exceed the number of people we have at the company,” said Alan Eustace, Google’s senior vice president of engineering and research.
 
6 Intel Increase: 4,000
The CEO of Intel, Paul Otellini, announced plans to add 4,000 U.S. jobs this year in product development and research and development.
 
7 Quintiles Increase: 1,700
The pharmaceutical company continues its hiring plans despite layoffs earlier this year. “This action affected a small number of employees among a total employee population of more than 20,000 in 60 countries,” the company spokesman told WRAL. “While we are making necessary changes in certain areas, we will add resources where they are needed to fuel our growth. It is important to note that we currently have almost 1,700 job requisitions open at Quintiles today.”

8 Amazon.com Increase: 1,600
The mammoth online retail giant plans to add 1,600 jobs to its payroll. The online shopping Web site has openings for software developers and advertising salespeople in its careers section.

9 YRC Worldwide Increase: 1,100
The transportation provider announced an initiative to hire more sales professionals in the U.S. “The rising demand for our award-winning services has created the opportunity for us to expand our sales team from coast to coast,” said Mike Naatz, president, Customer Care Division & Chief Customer Officer for YRC in a statement.
 
10 Wells Fargo Increase: 1,000
The banking institute is adding positions in the Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Virginia area for jobs that range from teller to store manager at the previously acquired Wachovia bank. “It’s critical that we are fully staffed with enthusiastic, skilled team members in our banking stores,” said Pete Jones, Wells Fargo regional president for the Mid-Atlantic region in a statement. “We also hope that, by adding over 1,000 new team members in the next three months, we’ll be contributing to the economic recovery in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C.”

The Winners & Losers of Social Networking (Very Informative Infographic)

The course of social media never did run smooth, not for long, anyhow. And for some Web 2.0 companies, it’s running less smoothly than ever.
It goes without saying that Facebook is the network du jour, but even though the reigning champion’s user stats keep soaring, social networking as a whole might be leveling off. Nevertheless, there are still scores of other highly competitive social sites that are waxing and waning; and different networks and apps are more popular in specific geographic areas, with certain genders or age groups and even among various social classes.
For example, Plaxo is the network with the most users over the age of 65. Facebook is more popular with women, but Digg and Reddit tend to be more popular with men. LinkedIn is the “richest” social network, but Plurk outranks it when it comes to well-educated users who have graduate degrees.
Check out this infographic from social media agency Ignite Social Media, and let us know what you think in the comments. Do these findings line up with your own perceptions and usage habits?

Seven High-Paying Jobs You Can Get with a Bachelor’s Degree

Want a high-paying job after you earn your bachelor’s degree? Take more technology, business or finance classes. Students who graduate with these degrees draw the highest starting salaries because they have skills in short supply and are entering fields where jobs are plentiful.

Take a look at our list of high-paying jobs you can get with a four-year degree, with salary data from Monster’s Salary Wizard:

Business Process Consultant

Landing this high-paying job takes a great GPA from a competitive school, a winning personality and analytical chops. In exchange for entry-level pay in the $70Ks, you could spend up to 90 percent of your time traveling, says Jon Mazzocchi, partner and general manager at Winter, Wyman & Co., a New York City staffing firm. If the long hours energize you, head back to school for an MBA in two years at the company’s expense.

ERP Analyst
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) analyst is a high-paying job because knowing how to extract and use data from companywide systems to do forward planning, find cost savings and make quick decisions can positively influence the bottom line. Make yourself a hot hire by snagging an internship where you get experience with SAP or Oracle before you graduate, says Josh Warborg, district president for Robert Half International in Menlo Park, California.

Web Security Administrator
Given the constant drum beat of regulation, compliance and intrusion attempts, security administration is the most promising entry-level job for IT grads right now, says David Foote, CEO of Foote Partners, a Vero Beach, Florida, IT analyst firm. It’s a great option for techies who are very technical, tenacious, suspicious and never satisfied. Do an internship leading to a security clearance to boost your salary even higher.

IT Auditor
Information technology auditors make sure computer systems do what they’re supposed to do in the way they’re supposed to do it, like manage orders or track shipments. Get a dual major (or a major and emphasis) in accounting and IT to set yourself up for this high-paying job, Warborg says.

Environmental Engineer
Use math to make the world a greener place, as well as chemistry and biology to clean up environmental damage. You can also work helping companies prevent environmental hazards. Having a military background or security clearance can add 15 percent to virtually any engineer’s salary, says Elaine Varelas, managing partner of Keystone Partners, a Boston career-management firm.

Financial Reporting Accountant
Complying with the ever-growing demands of the Securities and Exchange Commission, talking to the external auditors and making sure your employer is following accounting rules will all be on your to-do list when you work as a financial reporting accountant.

Web Software Developer
By working internships before you finish your four-year degree, you can get the one year of experience you need in Web-based development to win this high-paying job. Experience with .Net and object-oriented applications is especially valuable, Foote says.
