Share Article

Philadelphia area mom-preneur Ilyse Shapiro has developed a way to stave off the looming employment crisis and keep Americans working. Her solution is http://www.MyPartTimePRO.com, a Web site specifically designed to connect educated and accomplished individuals with meaningful, flexible, employment opportunities.

Full-time positions could easily be broken up into various short-term projects or as a part-time job share opportunity. Arrangements like this enable employers to 'think outside the box,' be more flexible, and hire the right talent for specific tasks

Employment statistics filled with doom and gloom seem to pop up at every turn. The Bureau of Labor Statistics confirmed that the pool of workers ages 35-44 will shrink by 7% within the next six years. The U.S. Census Bureau adds that the labor force growth rate is expected to fall to .36% per year between 2010-2020, leaving us with more jobs than we have people to fill them. Employment consulting firm Lee Hecht Harrison has found that more than 60% of employers are experiencing tension between employees of different generations.

Philadelphia area "mom-preneur" Ilyse Shapiro has developed a way to stave off some of these negative findings and keep Americans working. Her solution is http://www.MyPartTimePRO.com, a Web site specifically designed to connect educated and accomplished individuals with meaningful, flexible, employment opportunities.

"The statistics speak for themselves," says Shapiro. "We need to keep as many bright, talented Americans in the workforce as long as possible. However, many of today's workers don't want traditional full-time employment. They are seeking positions that provide greater flexibility and work/life balance. http://www.MyPartTimePRO.com is designed for savvy employers who are aware of these trends to connect with these 'self-actualized' job-seekers."

Shapiro found several trends to help substantiate the hard numbers. "To make ends meet, Baby Boomers are retiring from their full-time jobs, only to accept part-time employment. GenXers crave meaningful work as long as it's on their own schedule. And Gen Ys would rather hold down several part-time jobs that provide a balance between career- and self-fulfillment. When you combine the statistics with these psychographic trends, the need for http://www.MyPartTimePRO.com becomes even more apparent," says Shapiro.

And for those employers who will not shed their blinders? Shapiro adds that employers must start to re-engineer positions in order to survive. "Full-time positions could easily be broken up into various short-term projects or as a part-time job share opportunity. Arrangements like this enable employers to 'think outside the box,' be more flexible, and hire the right talent for specific tasks," adds Shapiro.

http://www.MyPartTimePRO.com provides an alternative to other job search Web sites which promote full-time positions, "dubious" part-time opportunities, or employment for the unskilled or entry-level worker. The site strictly communicates project-based, seasonal, virtual, temporary, job share, short-term, telecommuting and part-time opportunities to educated career veterans who are not seeking traditional, full-time employment. Currently, the site is available to New York City area and Philadelphia area employers and job seekers. National accessibility is expected by the end of 2007.
