Clausen: Filling the STEM, middle skills gaps — Great pay, flexible hours, three weeks starting vacation and causal dress days. That's part of the work life at Harris RF Communication, according to a group of workers who spoke recently about careers in science, technology, engineering and math to roughly 40 teens in the P-Tech Rochester Pathways to Technology Program at Edison Tech.

Job fair takes aim at advanced manufacturing — A career night event in Wayne County on Thursday isn't just for students and their families but for job seekers, too. The Wayne Technical and Career Center in Williamson will hold an open house and a career fair with more than 40 employers looking to fill hard-to-fill middle-skills careers.

Fran Weisberg named new president of United Way — The United Way of Rochester named Weisberg Wednesday morning as its sixth president and CEO. She replaces Peter Carpino, who is retiring.

Dirty job: Caring for zoo's elephants no circus — ROCHESTER, N.Y. - In the realm of dirty jobs, the zoo here has two openings that could be intensely rewarding. Genny C and Lilac need some TLC. But the African elephants, who weigh a combined 17,000 pounds, also leave 30 pounds of poop at a pop.

Sutherland student wins award for race relations — A high school student at the center of Spencerport schools' decision to adopt the Urban-Suburban program has won the Princeton Prize for working to improve race relations in the Rochester area. Chyna Stephens, 17, a city resident who attends Pittsford Sutherland through the program, won the prize Sunday during a ceremony at Allendale Columbia School.

Novelty, sports apparel firms push growth — It might be time to leave the black tie and high heels in the closet. Local apparel manufacturers would rather see you workout or play in their apparel, and maybe laugh about it too. "The number of people that are doing what we are doing has increased dramatically," said Vic Ciaccia, who owns AVS Activewear with his brother Tony since 1979.

Clausen: Job loss is sad way to welcome child — A child will be born a few weeks from now to a young mother who lost her job about the same time she found out that she was pregnant. Betzaida Cruz Cardona was hired at Savers in Henrietta almost a year ago. She worked her way up from the back room to cashier.

Iconic Charlotte Appliance marquee comes down — Cold weather, heavy snow, or perhaps just old age? The reason why an iconic piece of the Charlotte neighborhood in Rochester came crashing down early Wednesday is still a mystery, but the marquee outside of Charlotte Furniture and Appliance will be repaired or replaced.

Job Path programs helps 400 disabled workers — Marty Bollweg was working in his food service position at St. John Fisher College when he saw former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly during training camp. Surprised, he quickly blurted out: Are you Jim Kelly? The response went something like: No, I'm Jim Flutie.

Working parents juggle jobs, seasonal illnesses — ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Andrea Raethka's Facebook post earlier this week read like an alert to stay far away from her city home. "This the season to be ... Sneezy!" she wrote. "All the Raethkas are sick, except for my daughter, fa la la la la la la la la."
