What You Say On Social Networks Could Cost You Your Dream Job

What You Say On Social Networks Could Cost You Your Dream Job | business managment | Scoop.it
Much of the process of applying and interviewing for a new job is acting—creating a façade that you want the prospective employer to believe, and hiding elements of your true self that you don’t want them to know about.
Ashleigh Dawley's insight:

So true! While I cannot say that I have ever discriminated based upon the religion of someone, I can say that every potential employee that I have had....I look at their social media. While my business might not be what you consider a "dream job" I have to argue that if I am doing it in my litttle coffee shop, any business out there is doing it as well.

How to Write a Fluff-Free Mission Statement

How to Write a Fluff-Free Mission Statement | business managment | Scoop.it

If somebody asks you to state your mission, proudly tell 'em that for which they've been wishin'!


Via Kamal Bennani
Ashleigh Dawley's insight:

Really enjoyed this article. I think that it brings up really important points about why mission statements often suck. If it is too long, not specific enough or even just full of really complicated words it will not have an impact on the consumer. Just because a mission statement has a lot of really fancy words and sounds good dosent mean that it is effective.

"Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize your emotions, understand what they’re telling you, and realize how they affect the people around you. People who function at a high rate of emotional intelligence have the ability to adjust their behaviors and are more effective at recognizing and managing their own emotions as well as the emotions of others. Ergo, emotional intelligence equals interpersonal effectiveness; the more effective you are with others, the more successful you’ll be."

7 Myths About Ethics Which Will Hurt Your Business
Huffington Post
This myth ignores the complexity surrounding ethical decision making, particularly within business organizations. Ethical decisions are seldom simple.

Via TechinBiz
Ashleigh Dawley's insight:

I found it intersting how blurry the lines in ethics are. The article talks about  ethics and the idea that hiring only ethical people  makes your business better or that it is easy to be ethical. I know that most times when I come into contact with ethical decision sometimes its easy and sometimes its hard.

Kyle Ryan's curator insight, October 28, 2013 1:31 PM

Making an ethical decision in the business world is a tough thing to come by. Companies are more worried about their success rather than the happiness of their customers. Business ethics needs to be practiced every day by every employee in order to have a successful and trustworthy business model.

Walmart: The Key to Success: Strategy for Managing People Resources

Ashleigh Dawley's insight:

I found this article very interesting. I found it impressive not only that Wal-Mart tried to motivate employees but also one of its biggest positives in managing it Human Resources is to hire within. That stratagy makes so much sense because why not promote someone that tou know is an amazing worker rather than promote someone that looks good on paper, yet you do not know their work ethic personally.

I think this is a great article. While getting at the idea of motivation from the negative standpoint I think that this article has great do nots when it comes to try and motivate employees.

President Obama’s standing has undoubtedly suffered from recent turmoil over Syria and American spying, even though he can point to a strengthening economy.
Ashleigh Dawley's insight:

While I may not agree with Obamas policies or leadership I have to say it must be difficult to have your skills as a leader constantly questioned especially on important issues in the world. I would feel like I have to constantly second guess  myself.

taniaATenthuse.me's curator insight, August 27, 2013 11:07 AM

Getting away from the normal routine will recharge your batteries and enable you to deal with your business challenges in a more effective way. You will unplug from your situation, see things from a different perspective and bring new ideas to deal with your problems.
Great advice by Eric Wagner that will help you avoid burnout and give you the chance to rejuvenate and refocus. Go for it :)

This article was very interesting. The fact that last year alone personality testing was a 500 billion dollar industry is astounding. I like the point that the article made about personality testing ot being helpful in choosing an employee as on the job performence is a much better indicator. Personality test give a lack of adaptablity while real life situations help show a persons willingness and ableness to bend and adapt in a given situation.

Social media increasingly important on both sides of job hunt

Social media increasingly important on both sides of job hunt | business managment | Scoop.it

Social media continue to grow as a go-to source for both job seekers and the employers looking to hire them.

A crowded job market has pushed more job seekers to use social networks for leads and to get in front of employers, Dan Finnegan, Jobvite's chief executive officer, said in a statement announcing the report.

"With fierce competition for jobs, which now includes a majority of employed people on top of active job seekers, social media has become a critical tool for job hunting and career growth," Finnegan said.


Via Ilkka Olander
Ashleigh Dawley's insight:

I find the use of social media very interesting within the employment market. As an employer and employee myself  I have used social media in both ways. I know it can be hard to not only find a job, bu also good employees so I will often post on my facebook wall that I am looking to fill a position and if anyone has a friend or soemone that they know that would be  a hard worker. In a job market like  ours I get so many applicants that it can be difficult to find a good fit. When I turn to my social network to get leads I am in turn getting a referal helping to narrow down where to begin.

#Ethics in an Age of Social Media & Public Conversations | Deirdre Breakenridge | business managment | Scoop.it

In an age of public conversations, ethical decision making and accurate communications are top of mind for the PR professional. With the public accessing social media for their news and information, the topic of ethics is even more prominent.

 

The major professional associations provide a Code of Ethics to educate and guide PR professionals on the subject. However, with the shifting media landscape and technology advancing rapidly, communications ethics are challenged....


Via Jeff Domansky
Ashleigh Dawley's insight:

Really loves how this article addresses the idea of ethics in our media driven society. Not only has this become an issue  in more recept years because literally EVERYTHING can end up online, but also how we can address. Because conversations have become more and more public, the idea  of how that has changed how we view ethics needs to be revisited.

more...
Deanna Moore's curator insight, September 12, 2013 4:22 PM

Ethics in the Public Relations field are extremely important and the only way to maintain a good relationship in this field is to ensure that each party has the same values and understandings. When it comes to the social media it is important that these ethics are followed because things travel so fast through the web that one it is sent out, its impossible to take back. Anyone in the industry of Public Relations, marketing, politics and so on has to keep in mind that anything and everything that is posted from their accounts are being viewed and most importantly they are being judged by everyone they are working with.

An article that connects two of our future course concepts about ethics and social media.

Bryce Wettstein's curator insight, October 28, 2013 2:16 AM

This article involved a interview with Dr. Shannon Bowen, an Associate Professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of South Carolina. She talks about how it is becoming increasingly more important in this age of social media to be conscious about how ethical we as a society need to be regarding posts on social media. It mentions that we need to consider three angles: "responsibility to moral principle, maintaining the dignity and respect of all publics, and proceeding with good intentions."

I was really blown away by the information in this article. Wen you think of a leader you don't think that they would be fearful,see humility as confidence, or even the teaching can actually be a powerful tool for learning. I think that society has become so obssesed with the idea of money and power we just think that in order to attain those goals we need to step on the person above us to further our own agendas.

This is a really smart move on nintendos part. Smart phones and tablets have been taking over the world recently. With free apps I am sure parents have begin to wonder what the point is in buying a gaming device when they would still have to spend money on games as well.
