NCLGBA launches Career Gateway for member job announcements

NCLGBA launches Career Gateway for member job announcements

Last week, the NCLGBA Board chose to launch a new website that will focus primarily on job announcements for budget, financial, and management positions with member jurisdictions. The site will also provide links and information on other public sector and budget sector job sites, as well as occasional links to articles that will be of interest to those looking for work.

Any jurisdiction with membership in NCLGBA can have their job announcements related to budget, finance, or management positions posted to the new NCLGBA Career Gateway. A link is located in the sidebar of this site, or it can accessed directly at http://jobs.nclgba.org.

We will do our best to catch job postings made to the NCLGBA listserv and post them to the site. However, to ensure that your posting makes it, you can send a copy to jobs@nclgba.org.

The header for each job announcement post will contain the position title, jurisdiction, and closing date. Postings have already been added, so take a look at the Career Gateway today!

Stay tuned for future updates on this and other developments with NCLGBA online.

What NC Economists are Saying

What NC Economists are Saying

Three of the better-known economists in North Carolina commented on the current state of the economy late this week, in anticipation and response to today’s BLS unemployment report for August. Here is a sample what they posted on the LocalTechWire blog:

Dr. Michael Unger, director of the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics Program at Duke University, offers some historic insight into the period some are trying to compare the present to, the mid-1930’s.

Dr. Michael Walden, William Neal Reynolds Distinguished Professor for the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at North Carolina State University, suggests the recent growth is slowing down considerably.

Finally, Dr. James Kleckley, director of the Bureau of Business Research in the College of Business at East Carolina University, focuses his attention on the job front, and how its lack of growth is an even bigger issue than the economy as a whole.
