It’s a great time to find a new job in Indian River County. We have had some new venues open up, new businesses moving to our area, and our service providers are literally begging for people. Companies here in Vero Beach and Sebastian which provide services to the construction trade and to homeowners are the fastest growing market segment. But there is also a need for office personnel, retail associates, and yard maintenance. We are so excited by this trend and we really hope it continues for the foreseeable future.
Not only are we seeing this growth trend, it appears that other areas of the country are as well. Take a look: from the ADP Blog:
“Midsized Businesses Boost Job Growth
Midsized businesses added 78,000 positions in April. Unlike large businesses that may be sensitive to international economic factors such as currency exchange, and small businesses that might struggle to provide competitive wages in a tight talent market, midsized organizations are diverse, and their recent streak is difficult to attribute to any overarching economic trends.
While midsized organizations showed no signs of difficulty adding to the payroll in April, organizations of all sizes would be wise to watch the U.S. job market in the months to come. The rapid-fire hiring that took place in the first quarter of 2017 could indicate that talent is at a premium, and wages could continue to rise to reflect a job market where demand is higher than the supply of talent.
The Service-Providing Sector Continues to Flourish
The service-providing sector added an astounding 165,000 jobs in April 2017. The professional and business services sector was a key contributor, adding 72,000 jobs. The main growth in this area was 53,000 positions added in administrative and support services. While it’s certainly pushing the job market forward, this industry could be associated with temporary jobs that may not indicate future job growth in the economy.”
I disagree with the last sentence, at least for our area. For too long there have been local companies where the owners still spent too much time working IN their business instead of ON their business. With the uptick in demand, I think more companies will have the funding to hire staff and keep them working.
Vero Beach Florida and Sebastian Florida are two great places to live. They are also in the process of becoming great places to work. People are moving here for the great weather, proximity to the water and the affordable cost of living. Companies are starting to relocate here for the same reasons.
My partners and I saw this trend in employment and company growth and made the decision to add Payroll Services to our product offering. As an established Accounting firm, we recognized a growing need for a reliable payroll processing company for our clients. Complete Employee Solutions provides customized payroll solutions for businesses of all sizes. It offers multiple options for paying your employees, including electronic pay cards. With this system, you can integrate payroll functions with human resources management, benefits administration, and time and attendance solutions.
Until very recently a majority of the jobs here in Vero Beach were tourism related. As more people move to our area, there are new types of industries coming to town, and those provide employment. I have worked with some of the more established companies here in Vero Beach and they are all growing. Cutting a check every Friday from your business checkbook just isn’t the best way to pay your employees. And lest we forget, Workman’s Comp, payroll taxes, rules and regulations regarding overtime. All of these things, if not properly complied with, can spell big trouble for business owners.

Four several years now my partners and I have owned a Payroll Company here in Indian River County. I personally have been in the payroll business for a number of years. I know the payroll procedures inside and out. Yet, just when I feel confident that I am up to date on all there is to know, the Department of Labor comes up with something new. Luckily accounting and payroll are what I do most fo the time, so I can focus on staying up to date with all of the new rulings, but what happens if you are also running a business that has nothing to do with how payroll is processed?

Are you prepared for your upcoming job interview? Did you do your research about the company you are interviewing with? Have you talked to your friends who work there about the culture of the company? If you have done all these things, then you are ready. Right? The answer is “No, You aren’t”. Because even more important is the ability to let the interviewer know who you are. What you bring to the table, how you can help their company.
The job interview will probably start off with some general introductory questions, such as:
- Can you tell me a little about yourself?
- What do you know about our company?
- How did you hear about this job?
- What motivates you?”
These are questions you need to prepare strong answers for. Ask yourself the questions, write them down, then formulate answers. Get in front of a mirror, or if you are really brave, record yourself giving the answers. Then watch the video, note the parts where you hesitate, or say um, or like, or you know, and do it again, until you have it down pat. Remember, you are probably going to be a little nervous, so having the words burned into your memory is the safest thing to do. Don’t worry, they probably won’t come out exactly as you planned, in fact that is a good thing, you don’t want to sound like a robot. But being prepared and polished is going to impress a potential employer, stumbling and fumbling around will not.
To read the rest of the questions you should have answers for, head over to Forbes Magazine. Read the questions, answer them thoughtfully and you will be ready for that job interview.
