I promised a September 5th kickoff for Bill4DogCatcher.com web radio.
Oops! Missed my deadline. Our new launch date is September 19th. (Technical glitches — that is my story and I am sticking with it.)
However, you can listen to some music on Bill4DogCatcher.com Radio until we get it all together.
B4DC Radio will be a 24/7 music station with commentary spread throughout. I promise not more than four comments per hour.
Music — these will be my favorite picks and the picks are fairly eclectic. I will probably be the only listener due to the level of eclecticism … but you are welcome to join me if you don’t mind Abba, Led Zeppelin, Goodbye Charlotte and today’s newer adult alternative all on the same channel.
B4DC webTV will initially be a 30 minute segment weekly on all the stuff that I already talk about PLUS images, predictions (probably always wrong), charts, my favorite short videos about life, politics, and trends in America and around the world … and some other stuff. BUT NO SINGING. I don’t sing. I don’t even do karaoke.
B4DC webTV will be looking for folks to interview and to chit-chat with. You don’t have to be here: we can do Skype video or Apple Facetime. We’re hitech and flexible.
It’s true: I have nothing else in my life to do except to think of new things to do.
… BTW, did I also mention that I will be launching USAJobZoo.com jobs and careers webTV and webRadio at the same time? Tons of news and info on jobs, careers and trends. Since I actually want you to listen to our station we will be offering six different music channels — so you don’t have to go the eclectic route.
Which skillsets make how many $$ in USA?
Which skillsets are gaining and losing jobs (left of the red line)? Adios better paying jobs!

- Hourly value of skills depicted in left margin. The higher your bubble the more $ per hour.
- The larger the bubble then the more people employed within that skillset and careerfield.
- The red line = not good to be to the left of this line. Job losses happened here and there has been no bounce back!
- Most of the high paying jobs have taken major hits; there is a jobless recovery in most of those fields (IT, finance, construction, insurance, professional and technical services, real estate).
- These are national averages. The hourly wage will seem low in some major metropolitan areas. For some skillsets people may wonder how to make that much money. Location matters. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics provides compensation information at the county and major cosmopolitan area. You can also get this information quicker by dropping by at USAJobZoo.com
As points of comparison:
- The largest single careerfield in the USA is ‘Waiters and Waitresses’ at $8.69/hr or $18075.20 per year if fulltime and before tips.
