A top recruiter on what anyone can see after 30 seconds with your resume - Quartz

This question originally appeared on Quora: What do recruiters look for in a resume at first glance? Answer by Ambra Benjamin, Engineering Recruiter. I don't look through stacks of resumes anymore. I hate paper. I do everything online. There has been for many decades, a mysterious Wizard of Oz-type viewpoint of the recruiting world that I...

‘Content Shock’, Curation and The Golden Opportunity

‘Content Shock’, Curation and The Golden Opportunity | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it
At what point does the exponential increase in content production make the cost of trying to grab and hold attention no longer cost-effective?

Via janlgordon

janlgordon's curator insight, January 26, 2014 2:00 PM

Quite a stir was made a week ago, when Mark Schaefer published his Content Shock article on the businessesgrow blog.

 

A paraphrasing of the question he asked was, ‘At what point does the exponential increase in content production make the cost of trying to grab and hold attention no longer cost-effective?’

 

The topic resonated me as well as many others and the responses were swift, including  Shel Holtz, Sonia Simone of Copyblogger and Marty Smith, the first two of which are discussed in the piece published in curatti.com (Marty’s piece was published too late to be included).

 

 

We don’t feel that Content Shock is something that any of us need to be concerned over. 

 

Let’s not forget that

 

As content continues to grow, search keeps pace by constantly improving. “

 

Semantic Search may be beyond most people now, but it will become a part of everyone’s life even if in the same mysterious way that a car engine helps that wonderful machine convey us from point A to point B.”

 

And amongst those who stand to gain from the situation are:

 

“Discerning Curators who understand the needs of their readers because they are consumers of the same content, only sharing what blows them away!”

 

… a statement which is at least partly backed up here by an end user perspective:

 

When I need to research something, I go to a few trusted sources and get what I want, when I want it.”

 

 

The message to readers is: “If someone is out there filtering the deluge of articles that you might otherwise have to work your own way through…. it removes the burden of you having to deal with the ever growing content mountain.”

 

So is Content Shock real?  With all the excellent curators and filtering tools available ....... Only for those who insist on reading every source for themselves

Two researchers are calling for rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA (ecstasy) to identify exactly how the drug promotes strong feelings of empathy, according to a Commentary in the journal Cell. Such research may help researchers develop new therapeutic compounds, particularly for autism and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

MDMA is described as an “empathogen,” a compound that promotes feelings of empathy and close positive social feelings in users. The drug is a strictly regulated Schedule I compound, a category reserved for substances with no accepted medical use and high abuse potential.

How to Use Snapchat: A Detailed Look Into HubSpot’s Snapchat Strategy

How to Use Snapchat: A Detailed Look Into HubSpot’s Snapchat Strategy | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

Snapchat is now known as a platform for individuals and brands -- one that allows users to create quick, lighthearted, and even educational video content without using valuable production resources. For brands, this means a new opportunity to show off their culture, share knowledge, and connect with their audience in a new and exciting way.


After reporting more than 100 million daily active users, and over 8 billion video views a day, we decided to give it a go: The official HubSpot Snapchat account launched in March 2016. And while we're still getting our feet wet, we've already learned a lot about executing and iterating a successful Snapchat business strategy.


To help you get started, we've detailed everything we've learned (so far) below. We'll start by going over the basics -- how to set up an account, create a Snap, leverage effects, etc. -- and jump into some tips after that. ...

As we all know there's so much content flying by especially on Twitter, being able to grab someone's attention is key. Learning how to craft a headline that draws the reader in is a must.

 

There are great tips in here

 

Here are a few that caught my attention:

 

E is for empathy.

 

Jay Baer, author of the great marketing book “Youtility,” points out in social media today, your messages are delivered alongside those of your reader’s friends and family. To earn their attention and trust, you too have to achieve friend status. The best way to accomplish this is to show your reader you understand their problems and care.

 

"You’re Going to Love These Free Analytics Apps" 


S is for success


The oldest and most proven approach to headline nirvana is delivering a little bundle of success.Of course, you need insights into how your readers define success. When you have them, speak to them.

 

 "Nine Headline Tricks Sure to Boost Your Leads"


A is for ask


The question headline is enormously effective—provided you ask a question your target audience wants to know the answer to.

"If you’re struggling with how to use Instagram as part of your marketing strategy, it might be because you don’t know what to do and what not to do."


Here are some highlights that caught my attention:


Complete your bio with relevant information


Include your website in the bio – this is the only place where you can include a hyperlink


Do NOT share every Instagram post to Facebook or Twitter. Give people a reason to follow you here


Do not follow everyone that follows you – follow only those with similar interests or engagement


Thank and engage with everyone who commented on your post and use the @ before their name otherwise they won't see it

15 Hidden Snapchat Hacks & Features You'll Wish You Knew About Sooner

15 Hidden Snapchat Hacks & Features You'll Wish You Knew About Sooner | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

Snapchat, the one-to-one messaging app with more than 150 million daily active users, has earned a reputation for fast growth and innovation.


But despite its success, it isn't the most user-friendly app I've ever played around with. Many of its best features are so buried within the app that a lot of people don't even know they exist. In March 2016, Snapchat added even more features in their release of a new version, and some of these features have totally reshaped how people use the app in the first place.


For example, did you know that you can use Snapchat to make a live video call? Or that you can add emojis to your Snapchat videos -- and make it so they move and scale with specific objects? What about the trick where you can save data by turning the app on to "travel mode"?


There are a whole lot of cool things you can do with Snapchat that you may not have known about. But before we jump into them, it's important that you know the basics.


Already have the basics down? Read on for some more advanced tips and features.


Note: Before getting started, make sure you're operating on the latest version of Snapchat. At the time of posting, the latest version is 9.33.0.0....

60+ Ideas for How To Be A Creative Thought Leader – Cool PREZI Included! - The Future of Ink | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it
Being recognized as a Creative Thought Leader in your niche takes you from being “just another expert to expert” to being someone who really stands out.

I can deliver marketing formulas (or what I call marketing prescriptions) all day long.  But it’s not enough to just “do marketing” – you want to make it engaging, educational, inspirational and personally compelling.

You can have incredible content but if no one pays attention, if you are lost in the crowd – it won’t help your message, your business or all those people you want to reach. You’ll be a “best kept secret.”  We don’t want that!
