70% should be safe, positive, valuable blogs

20% should be content that might be high return posts

10% should be risky and experimental

Klout Would Like Potential Employers To Consider Your Score Before Hiring You. And That’s Stupid. | TechCrunch

Klout Would Like Potential Employers To Consider Your Score Before Hiring You. And That’s Stupid. | TechCrunch | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Let's put it out there right now: I am personally not a fan of Klout, which ranks people based on their Internet interactions and engagement on services like Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.
Ken Morrison's insight:

Why this writer doesn't think human resource managers should look at Klout.

 

Ken's  Key Takeaway:

tweeting from within Twitter helps your Klout Score.

The head of human resources at sales force has a score of 54.  Some people require of score of 35 to be hired.  

Is there a relation between Klout score and being a good worker?  I'm all ears.

Managing a Klout score can be distracting.  Especially when Twitter should be used primarily as a listing and learning tool (not a talking tool), I think that Klout can pollute the Twitter experience.

Some of the characteristics of the book that I loved the most were:

2) The encapsulation of the ideas in a nutshell towards the end of every chapter.
3) The bulleted points to simplify understanding and ensure brevity.
4) The practical to-do tips peppered throughout the book
5) The new and fresh examples which were cited in the book.

Wouldn't want to be a 2012 grad for all the tea in China given the lackluster state of economy and hiring. Great, helpful post by maxOz may help dull the pain some. If I had it to do over again I would start my first company at 22 not 35 because 1. WHY NOT and 2. see #1. Great Scoop Michele. Marty
