****************************************

This is a continuation of Flickr sets that I created in 2010 (shown here), 2009 (shown here), and 2008 (shown here) — which, collectively, illustrate a variety of scenes and people in the small "pocket park" known as Verdi Square, located at 72nd Street and Broadway in New York City’s Upper West Side, right by the 72nd St. IRT subway station.

I typically visit a local gym once or twice a week, and I get there by taking the downtown IRT express from my home (at 96th Street) down to the 72nd Street stop. Whenever possible, I try to schedule an extra 30-60 minutes to sit quietly on one of the park benches, and just watch the flow of people coming in and out of the park — sometimes just passing through, to get from 72nd Street up to 73rd Street, but mostly entering or exiting the subway station.

You see all kinds of people here: students, bums, tourists, office workers, homeless people, retired people, babysitters, children, soldiers, sanitation workers, lovers, friends, dogs, cats, pigeons, and a few things that simply defy description. Sometimes you see the same people over and over again; sometimes they follow a regular pattern at a particular time of the day.

If I focus on the people entering the park at 73rd Street, and walking southwards toward the subway entrance, I typically have five or ten seconds to (a) decide if they’re sufficiently interesting to bother photographing,(b) wait for them to get in a position where I can get a clear shot of them, and (c) focus my camera on them and take several shots, in the hope that at least one or two of them will be well-focused and really interesting.

While you might get the impression that I photograph every single person who moves through this park, it’s actually just the opposite: the vast majority of people that I see here are just not all that interesting. (It’s not that they’re ugly, it’s just that there’s nothing interesting, memorable, or distinctive about them.) Even so, I might well take, say, 200 shots in the space of an hour. But some of them are repetitive or redundant, and others are blurred or out-of-focus, or technically defective in some other way. Of the ones that survive this kind of scrutiny, many turn out to be well-focused, nicely-composed, but … well … just "okay". I’ll keep them on my computer, just in case, but I don’t bother uploading them.

Typically, only about 5-10% of the photos I’ve taken get uploaded to Flickr — e.g., about 10 photos from a one-hour session in which a thousand, or more, people have walked past me. There are some exceptions to this rule of thumb, as was the case with this particular set — but nevertheless, what you’re seeing it is indeed only a tiny, tiny subset of the "real" street scene in New York City. On the other hand, it is reassuring to see that there are at least a few "interesting" people in a city that often has a reputation of being mean, cold, and heartless…

Male clients usually pay per ten-minute stint, but most give generous tips, especially if the girl can work in some fancy footwork.

Olivia said that she would do it again as she didn’t break the law or take off her clothes and her ‘morals are still intact.’

‘These guys aren’t hurting anyone and everyone’s got their thing that turns them on,’ she added.

For many of Florida State University’s 40,000 students, having a part-time job helps make pursuing higher education a financial possibility.

Yet with school trumping their schedule, students most often run into issues with time management.

The added stress of a part-time job can be taxing on student’s social and academic lives.

According to FSU’s Career Center Megan Waldeck, assistant director of employer relations and recruitment services, flexibility is key to maintaining a sense of balance.
“Obviously, flexible employment is something that all college students are looking for,” said Waldeck.

For many students coveting “flexible employment,” Waldeck said the hospitality industry might be a good place to start.

“Food service is always good,” said Waldeck. “You learn a lot from that. You can learn teamwork, communication and multitasking from working in the food service industry. Anything with a flexible schedule is something that students are always looking for and those opportunities are both on and off-campus.”

With three part-time jobs, Florida State junior Alyssa Danos has had a lot of employment experience in the Tallahassee area.

Her main part-time position is waitressing at the Tomato Cafe & Tea Room in Havana, a small town just outside of Tallahassee.

…..item 2)…. Technology … Job Applicants Are Wary Of Firms’ Resume Sorting Software …

… KQED … www.kqed.org/news

… Public Media for Northern California …

by Annie Baxter | February 28, 2013 — 9:53 AM

www.kqed.org/news/story/2013/02/28/117104/job_applicants_…

With unemployment still high, hiring managers continue to be inundated by job applications. Some big companies are coping with the deluge by using talent management software that winnows pools of job applicants before a human lays eyes on their resumes.

Human resources teams say in today’s economy, the systems, which have been around for decades, are crucial. But job hunters like Tim Woodfield often find the software overly aggressive.

Woodfield is an information technology expert, but, ironically, computers became his nemesis during his job search.

He was out of work for about a year and applied for dozens of IT management positions in Minnesota’s Twin Cities. He said his resume often failed to make it past the companies’ software systems.

The software typically screens for keywords from a job description.

"If there’s 25 bullet points, you’ve got to hit all 25," Woodfield says. "So if you miss one or two, they’re going to catch you on it and somebody else is going to get the interview."

— How You’re Screened

Forget the old days when you’d print your application materials on nice, thick resume paper and mail it in.
These days, you usually apply online.

At the start of the process you create an account. And then you might be asked how much weight you can lift and if you’re a convicted felon. After, assuming that the software overlords are satisfied with your answers, you can submit your resume.

In case the right skills are there, the software will then rank you against other candidates. If not, you’ll likely get an auto-generated email rejecting your application.

Woodfield tried to outwit the software with another software program — Wordle, which can identify the key concepts from job descriptions.

He would then frontload keywords like "project management" and "IT infrastructure" into his resume.
He and other job seekers have complained that the candidate management software creates too many hoops to jump through.

"There’s no way possible you can have all the buzzwords, or your resume is six pages long," Woodfield says.

He ended up getting a job the old-fashioned way — through networking.

— More Job Seekers, Fewer Jobs

Elaine Orler, a talent acquisition consultant in San Diego, says candidate management software can be really helpful for big companies that can afford it. Several years into the economic recovery, unemployment is still high, and job openings are limited.

"Where they used to hire 10 they can only hire two in this economy," Orler says. "You’ve now got 1,000 people fighting for two [jobs]. By default, more people will be rejected."

And many of those applicants are totally unqualified. Ann Costello, a recruiter at Venteon Finance near Minneapolis, thinks the requirements for drawing unemployment benefits, which include applying for multiple jobs, are causing people to go on application sprees.

— Helpful Or Hurting?

Costello sees bartenders and line cooks vying for high-level accounting jobs. She figures it’s because they’re looking to check the box on their unemployment paperwork that shows they’re trying to get a job.
"I was opening up these resumes and just shaking my head, because it requires a college degree," Costello says. "I’ve probably got 20 applicants who don’t have a college degree."

In those cases, she says, candidate management software is helpful. But she concedes it may sometimes cut too deeply into the talent pool, eliminating candidates who didn’t use the right buzzwords.

"How can you get to a point where you feel like you’re screening out the people you don’t want to see and not the people you do? And there’s no perfect answer for that, because it’s a computer," she says.

But, Costello notes, humans are fallible, too. If hiring managers had to sit down and sort through hundreds of applications by hand, they might not fare much better.

…..item 3)…. ‘I make 0 a week at a foot fetish bordello’: The unlikely job helping a student pay her way through university …

… Mail Online – Daily Mail … www.dailymail.co.uk/femail

PUBLISHED: 17:37 EST, 11 March 2013 | UPDATED: 18:33 EST, 11 March 2013

A 19-year-old student has told how she makes up to 0 a week as a part-time ‘foot prostitute’.

Olivia, who did not give her full name to the New York Post, said that she was introduced to the world of foot fetishism after responding to a Craigslist advert asking for ‘Girls With Pretty Feet’.

At first she thought it was a modeling gig, but after auditioning at a Midtown spa-turned-brothel, she discovered that her feet would be pimped out to men for fondling sessions.

Trying to make ends meet: A New York University student has told how she can make up to 0 a week as a ‘foot prostitute’ at a Manhattan spa-turned-brothel

Initially shocked, Olivia then recalled thinking: ‘I’m only young and living in New York once.’

The self-described ‘broke college kid’ was also desperate to earn extra cash to fund an unpaid internship while studying at New York University.

The original Craigslist ad, targeted at women aged 18 to 30, only asked for a name, phone number and head shot.

When Olivia supplied these she was then told to get a pedicure and attend an interview dressed like she was going to a nightclub.

Her audition outfit consisted of a dressy tank top, pants and a pair of black stilettos.

On turning up to the Manhattan spa she said that more than 30 girls, who did not speak English, were waiting in the lobby wearing corsets and high heels.

‘I thought they said dress like you were going to a club; apparently, I came a little overdressed,’ she explained.

The man who placed the ad invited each of the girls into a room one-by-one where their feet were inspected.

Olivia, who wears size six-and-a-half shoe, said that he was looking for high arches and small feet.

‘These guys aren’t hurting anyone and everyone’s got their thing that turns them on’
Only ten of the girls made the cut, and the rest were sent off unpaid.

On a typical evening at the spa, which offers daytime services such as massages and scrubs, Olivia says that the clients arrive with bottles of liquor, as the venue cannot legally sell alcohol.

And most bring the ‘girliest’ drinks possible such as ‘whipped-cream Svedka’ and ‘cherry flavored vodka’ in a bid to get the girls tipsy.

Once everyone has had a few drinks the men are then made to pay a 0 entrance fee to a ‘foot pimp’ who pairs them up with a ‘foot prostitute’.

The male client then takes their partner off to a private massage room kitted out with napkins, lotion and wipes.

Recalling her first job Olivia said that a finance man with ‘a little potbelly’ ripped off her black stilettos off with his teeth, massaged her calves, groaned while he sucked her toes and gratified himself fully-dressed, as the spa maintains a strict clothes-on policy.

Olivia said she made made 0 with tip from the 40-minute session, and the man was ‘polite’.

She admitted that it was ‘weird at first’ and she wasn’t sure how she should move her feet in a sexy way for such a long amount of time.

Male clients usually pay per ten-minute stint, but most give generous tips, especially if the girl can work in some fancy footwork.

Olivia said that she would do it again as she didn’t break the law or take off her clothes and her ‘morals are still intact.’

‘These guys aren’t hurting anyone and everyone’s got their thing that turns them on,’ she added.
