As their collegiate careers wind down, members of the Class of 2012 have set sights on their professional futures. A majority will enter the work force with the strength of a Notre Dame degree backing them up, as statistics show University graduates fare well in job placement. Kevin Monahan, associate director at the Career Center, said he expects this year’s placement statistics to compare well to last year’s strong numbers. “For the class of 2011 last year, 85 percent left Notre Dame with definite plans: military careers, graduate school, post-graduate service or full-time employment,” he said. “Within three months of graduation, that number was in the upper 90s [percent.]” A Notre Dame degree carries great value, according to Monahan, who cited positive feedback from recruiters at Epic, a medical technology company located in Madison, Wisc., which recruited 36 graduating seniors this year. Monahan said the nature of certain sectors of the job market where positions become available and are filled rapidly leads to fluctuations in employment opportunities. “It really depends on the industry,” he said. “Certain industries hire on the ‘just-in-time’ market, like advertising, film, television and communications – they hire when they have need.” While some companies recruit well in advance of graduation, opportunities with those who use this type of hiring schedule are more difficult to anticipate. “If an advertising agency has an opening, they interview you today and ask you to start next week,” he said. Monahan said alumni networking is important in the job hunt, stressing these connections can lead to unexpected opportunities. “Because of the tight time frames, networking is very important,” he said. “You want people to be able to alert you to potential job openings.” The Notre Dame alumni network is especially helpful with “just-in-time” hiring industries, he said. Monahan cited the Chicago-based advertising agency Abelson Taylor as an example. “They have hired about 10 Notre Dame alumni in the past year, and each one has been through networking and referrals,” he said. “They rarely post any openings on their website, because [recruiting is] all done by alumni recommending other alumni.” Regardless of how graduates find job opportunities, Monahan said he is confident members of the class of 2012 will succeed in finding employment. “It’s still a challenging job market for graduating seniors,” Monahan said. “But with the resources available to our students through employer relationships, Career Center counseling and alumni networking, we are confident that all of graduates will be successful in their chosen careers.” Monahan said the Career Center continues to offer its services to seniors after graduation. “We will continue to work with students and young alumni in their job search,” he said. “I want to encourage the graduates, that, if they’re still seeking employment, please reach out to the Career Center. We’d love to help each person build a game plan for their job search.”

U.S. farmers have also been hard hit by retaliatory tariffs from China, which imposed punitive levies on pork and soybeans. Trade talks between the two countries soured last week as Trump accused China of reneging on certain agreements and hiked tariffs to 25 per cent from 10 per cent on US$200 billion of Chinese imports. Trump has also threatened to place additional levies on the remaining US$325 billion in goods entering the U.S. from the Asian superpower.In response, China vowed to boost tariffs on US$60 billion in U.S. goods, including a wide range of agricultural products, with promises to retaliate further.The multiple tariffs facing American farmers has dragged down prices and left behind a glut of unsold products.“Farmers are hurting, they’re getting nervous,” said Dave Salmonsen, a trade specialist at the American Farm Bureau in Washington, D.C. “It’s at this point that they are thinking about planting and wondering if they’ll have a market where they can sell their crops. They want to put these tariff disputes behind us.”To soften the blow of Beijing’s retaliatory duties, Trump on Monday said farmers would receive about US$15 billion dollars in aid, on top of the US$12 billion in relief already provided by the government. A desire to also lighten the tariff load on farmers is likely one of the reasons behind the current discussions with Canada and Mexico, Uzcjo said.“The stall in the U.S.-China talks has put a lot of pressure on the system,” he said. “U.S. officials need to release some of the steam from farm country and getting rid of the Mexican tariffs by lifting the steel tariffs would really help.”In addition, U.S. lawmakers from both the Republican and Democrat parties – alongside Mexican and Canadian officials — have identified the steel and aluminum levies as key obstacles to the ratification of the revamped NAFTA. Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, chair of the finance committee responsible for guiding the deal to approval in the U.S. Senate, has said the deal will not win approval with the tariffs in place.U.S. officials need to release some of the steam from farm country and getting rid of the Mexican tariffs by lifting the steel tariffs would really helpDan Uzcjo Email Facebook 4 Comments ‘Farmers are hurting’: Rising pressure on U.S. agriculture key to removal of steel tariffs from Canada, Mexico Many of Mexico’s retaliatory tariffs took aim at American agricultural goods produced in the farm states that supported Trump’s 2016 election Join the conversation → Reddit Comment Twitter Share this story’Farmers are hurting’: Rising pressure on U.S. agriculture key to removal of steel tariffs from Canada, Mexico Tumblr Pinterest Google+ LinkedIn “Trump needs to get rid of those retaliatory tariffs because it’s essential to getting the Republican votes to get the (new NAFTA) passed,” said Gary Hufbauer, a senior fellow at the Washington-based Peterson Institute for International Economics. “If there are five or more Republican naysayers I think the deal falls through.”Time is running short to present the deal for approval from the U.S. Congress. Indeed, if the legislation is not put before lawmakers by late July, it runs the risk of being sidelined by the 2020 presidential elections, analysts say.And the deal faces even more obstacles from Congressional Democrats led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who are demanding greater enforcement of Mexican labour reforms and changes to pharmaceutical provisions.“The next key thing is what will have to be done for Pelosi to allow a vote to even take place,” Hufbauer said.• Email: [email protected] | Twitter: Trump Tower is now one of New York City’s least-desirable luxury buildings Faltering U.S.-China trade talks, rising tariff pressure on American farmers and a rapidly disappearing opportunity to ratify the new North American Free Trade Agreement are fuelling Washington’s renewed push to negotiate the removal of steel and aluminum levies from Canada and Mexico, analysts say.“I think we are close to an understanding with Mexico and Canada,” on resolving the tariffs, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said at a U.S. Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing Wednesday.

Both Canada and Mexico have said they won’t ratify the new North American Free Trade Agreement with the tariffs in place.“Right now the Mexicans and Canadians are hanging tough together on this issue,” said Dan Uzcjo, an Ohio-based trade lawyer with Dickinson Wright who has been tracking the situation for clients. “We’ll see how long that lasts. Mexico’s tariffs have hit very hard in U.S. farm country so Canada’s position is a lot stronger with them by its side.”U.S. President Donald Trump extended tariffs on steel and aluminum imports to Canada and Mexico last June, prompting both countries strike back with levies on a range of U.S. products. While Canada targeted items including Kentucky bourbon, ketchup and maple syrup, many of Mexico’s tariffs took aim at American agricultural goods produced in the farm states that supported Trump’s 2016 election.Mexico’s tariffs have hit very hard in U.S. farm country so Canada’s position is a lot stronger with them by its sideDan Uzcjo, trade lawyer Escalating U.S.-China trade spat to hit Canadian business confidence, wallop global economy Related Stories William Watson: The secret Trumpinator algorithm that’s outsmarting Canada on U.S. tariffs May 15, 20194:31 PM EDT Filed under News Economy Naomi Powell More
