Is Self-Employment Riskier Than the Traditional 9 to 5?

Getting a job as an employee in a company with organized health and retirement benefits is the default and safe position in the working world. Anything outside of the safe, steady, in-house job environment—be that contracting or self employment—is seen as high-risk, high-stakes poker. But, is this assumption still correct? Is self-employment riskier than the traditional 9 to 5?

For example, one massive risk with full-time, permanent employment is that all your eggs are in one basket. If a recession hits and you are laid off, or you get fired for performance, it can be a catastrophic event; your income can drop to zero immediately, as you have no other income channels. You haven’t spread your risk, like you might do when you are self-employed (having several clients), and in this sense, having one in-house job is riskier than being self-employed where the loss of one client for whatever reason is not so catastrophic as you have other clients providing income to tide you over until you can replace the lost client.
Another risk with full-time, permanent employment is that the sands are shifting beneath employees’ feet. Reported in the HBR suggests that the rate of growth of contingent workers (freelance, contractors, part-time) is four times the growth rate of traditional workforces and that contingent workers will eventually make up 25 percent of the workforce.

Apple finally admiting about its i-Message bug

Apple has Finally admitted to a problem in its iMessage text message App.

The problem occurs when you attempt to move away from an iPhone to another type of smartphone.
Once Apple gets you into iMessage, it assumes you will stay there. If you switch from an iPhone to a phone running a different operating system (as many people, me included, have done), messages people send to you using iMessage simply disappear.
The sender is not told they weren’t delivered, and the intended recipient has no way of knowing they never got a message – because they never got a message.
Apple has been extremely reluctant to admit there has been a problem, blaming poor user behaviour.

But now, in a statement to tech news site Re/code, Apple has fussed up – a little. ''We recently fixed a server-side iMessage bug which was causing an issue for some users, and we have an additional bug fix in a future software update,” Apple said. “For users still experiencing an issue, please contact AppleCare.''
A simple Google search shows that the problem is widespread. Apple’s refusal to acknowledge it until now is, sadly, typical of its behaviour.

E-commerce ready for creation of 50k new jobs in India.

As foreign and domestic e-retail majors such as Amazon ,Snapdeal and Flipkart expand their businesses aggressively, hiring activities are expected to grow by over 30% in the sector and may help create up to 50,000 jobs in the next 2-3 years.According to leading human resources consultancy Randstad India, the hiring in this space is likely to rise by 20-30% in next few years on the back of entry of domestic online start-ups and e-commerce MNCs into Indian marketplace, as also because of setting up of back-office operations for various global businesses.

Another HR firm Unison International says that hiring has been rather slow in the e-commerce space over last couple of years, but recruitment may grow rapidly now by 33% over the previous year as various retail brands are also bringing in their business online.

As per findings of Jigsaw Academy, the e-commerce industry may create 15,000-50,000 jobs in the next three years for data analysts professionals alone.

"With global e-commerce giants entering India, demand for talent will increase along with compensation for top executives," Randstad India's Uppaluri said.

"The management and technical roles recruited from top B-schools and engineering campuses, have a starting package between Rs 8 to 12 lakhs per annum while senior executive compensations range from Rs 50 to 75 lakhs with attractive employee stock options plans (ESOPs)," he added.

Unison International MD Udit Mittal felt that the salary was more for this sector against the traditional retail "majorly because a lot of people who take up job in e-commerce are taking a higher risk as we never know if the e-commerce business model they are working towards will fly or can backfire".

"Traditionally data analysts in the BFSI sector are paid the highest salaries but e-commerce players are the new entrants, they are building their analytics capabilities and in a bid to get the right analytics talent, are offering lucrative salaries to analysts across levels,"
