Advice to Job Hunters from a George Clooney video Bookmark

Working with search committees is very rewarding to me. I enjoy meeting so many excellent candidates. But the difficult part is notifying candidates that they are not the candidate of choice to move on to the next stage or receive the offer.

DOL Expected TO FINALIZE OVERTIME RULE IN MID-2016
MSAE is closely monitoring when the Department of Labor might release its final overtime rule. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has estimated that a final rule could come out as soon as July 2016.

The DOL released a proposed rule this summer that would more than double the salary threshold for overtime eligibility to $50,440 per year (up from $23,660). In addition, the minimum salary would automatically increase each year to match the 40th percentile of the average salary earned by full-time employees in the United States.

MSAE, along with 250,000 other organizations, submitted comments on the proposed rule to DOL this past summer. The DOL is still reviewing comments and has yet to suggest what changes, if any, might be made to the final rule. MSAE's letter can be viewed here.
