Is it advisable to let a prospective employer call your current boss for references even though the job is not guaranteed?

Don't have a prospective employer call your current boss. If your current boss knows you're looking for another job, he/she could fire you! The prospective employer should realize this. Feel free to give earlier job references, of course.

WE cannot answer this for you ! The prospective employer is looking for you to tell them why you want to work for them - and DON'T say 'because I want the money' !

Not in Colorado Springs, I can tell you that. Local jobs are in high demand, and there's a lot of people looking for them.

Can employers make contributions to roth IRA?

Yes and no, if an employer contributes to your Roth IRA directly the employer must report it as income to you. Since it is income they must also report it to uncle sam as taxable income and the employer will have to pay payroll taxes on the contribution. They can not pay into a Roth as the employer, so that answer is NO. Most employers will not want to deal with the potential IRS reporting nightmare this can have. That being said, the're companies that offer PDP, payroll deduction plans. These plans are employee funded through the employees paycheck. The funds can be used to fund any type of account, i.e Roth, IRA, 529 and so on. The Employer then sends one check monthly to the company of choice based on the amount each employee has withheld from thier individual pay checks, hence payroll deduction. If the employer is looking to offer this as a benefit to it's employee or key employee the employer would increase the employee's pay to match the amount the employer wishes to contribute to the employee. But ultimately it looks like the employee is making the contributions.

If an an employer fires an employee because they found out that the employee was looking for another position can that employee receive unemployment benefits?

Yes as long as you have enough time in the required time frame at the job to collect it. Unemployment benefits are determined by if the loss of the job was by no falt of you own and your looking for another job did not affect your performance in your current job so it was not a justification to fire you unless you looked for a job while you were supposes to be actually doing your current job and it was keeping you from carrying out the duties of your current job then it would be pretty much your own falt.

What type of fees should I expect when looking for a job through an employment agency?

Generally speaking, employment agencies do not charge the prospective employee any fees. It is the employer that will cover the cost of agency fees when they employ you. The exception may be if you are working in a field which requires a CRB check (e.g. education or care), in which case you will probably have to pay for this yourself.

How much money do robotic engineers make?

In general, engineers along with just about any other profession, make either what they deserve or what they can negotiate. It's all about perception. If an employer perceives that an employee or candidate can provide greater value, the employee MAY be entitled to more money. If an engineering degree is all the employer is looking for, he/she may be willing to pay more for that piece of paper. On the other hand, if an employer needs an engineer to produce, the employee will more likely be paid based on his/her value to the company.

Can a freshmen be accepted in a job that qualifies only a person who has a college degree?

That's up to the prospective employer. The employer sets the qualifications and decides whom to hire. If an employer can't find someone with every single qualification they're looking for, sometimes they'll take what they can get. But the current job market in the U.S. suggests that's not likely. There's a pretty big gap between freshman year and graduation.

How do you answer why are you seeking employment when already employed?

Regardless of why you left, don't speak badly about your previous employer. The interviewer may wonder if you will be bad-mouthing his company next time you're looking for work.

I am an excellent employee and I didn't want my unhappiness to have any impact on the job I was doing for my employer.

Can a prospective employer contact your present employer without your consent?

Let's turn this around and say that you are the prospective employer. Would you want to know more about the prospective employee from his former employer(s). Wouldn't you like to know what kind of person you will be hiring? If the person you are thinking about hiring doesn't want you to contact former employers, would you think he has something to hide? Bottom line: after considering all of this, would you hire a person at point blank, no questions asked?...what if you are currently employed and you don't want your employer to find out you are looking for something else???You completely missed the question, "Can a prospective employer contact your present employer without your consent?" Get it? present employer and it is not illegal, but it is a legal liability on the prospective companies part as a lawsuit can come about if the job seeker's current position results in terminate or damaged work environment.If someone knows you are gainfully employed they owe you a duty of care in their dealings with you.Until a person accepts a job offer, there is a fiduciary responsibility to keep these meetings confidential (unless of course permission is given to the contrary).By violating his/her trust and his/her privacy, that would show a lack a concern for his/her well being. That is negligence. You need trust in any successful relationship.If he/she lost their job or promotin as result of this breach, they could sue and win. Why? A contract of privacy does not have to be in writing, it can be verbal. And in this case, it is implied by the nature of the communication and would be expected by any reasonable and prudent person.If you negligently cause someone to lose their job (whether or not intentionally) by violating a confidence, that is a compensable matter. You cannot put some one in a lessor position than you found them without consequences.
