Robin Good's curator insight, April 27, 2014 2:28 PM



Bento is a website that, thanks to its author Jon Chan and the many user contributions, has gathered, organized and curated the very best resources available online where you can learn how to code.


From html to javascript, ruby, php, Java, perl, Bento offers learning guidance for over 80 different technologies and coding languages. 


Here is how Jon Chan, a 23 years old who launched this project in September of 2013, describes Bento: 

"Bento is what I would have liked to have when I was learning to code.


I started learning to code when I was very young - about ten years old. Then, the only things I had available were what I could find online and through a few dense books.


Now, people have the exact opposite problem: how do you break through the noise and find what's actually valuable to learn?


This site is here to help you figure that out."

 

Bento is a perfect example of effective content curation as it does not simply collect and list all of the resources available to learn each language but it only suggests the very best ones, organizing them in easy, medium and hard and providing also "best of" / direct solutions that save readers lots of valuable time.


Free to use. 


Useful, simple and immediate to use. Well organized. 9/10

The Hidden Job Market Defined - Part 1

I love the hidden job market. I have built my career showing professionals how easy it is to shorten their job search, get more quality interviews and bigger offers using a very simple yet powerful system to tap into it. A statement I often hear is “isn’t tapping into the hidden job market just networking?” In short, no. It’s about going direct – and cutting out both “internal” and “external” middle men. Internal within the company (i.e. HR) and external outside of the company (i.e. recruiters). Let’s begin by dispelling a few other myths about the hidden job market:

Job Search:14 Tips For Staying Calm During An Interview - Forbes

Job Search:14 Tips For Staying Calm During An Interview - Forbes | Career and Personal Development | Scoop.it
"You’re in the hot seat. Your palms are sweaty; voice is shaky; face is flushed; and mouth is dry. Maybe you’re bouncing your knees and talking too fast." "Perhaps your heart is racing or your stomach is turning. You’re nervous." "Why does this happen to so many job candidates?" “When we perceive that we are in a high stakes situation, the brain doesn’t distinguish the high stakes of a job interview–where it would help to be calm, cool and collected–from the high stakes of being under threat from attack (say, from a tiger),” says Dr. Tamar Chansky, author of Freeing Yourself from Anxiety. "Plenty of job candidates get nervous in the hot seat--but you'll want to try your hardest to remain cool, calm and collected. Here are 14 ways to do that." by Jacquelyn Smith - Forbes Read more: http://www.forbes.com/sites/jacquelynsmith/2013/03/26/14-tips-for-staying-calm-during-a-job-interview/ Prefer slide show view, go here: http://www.forbes.com/pictures/efkk45ehgee/how-to-stay-calm-during-a-job-interview/#gallerycontent

You have already seen most of the 14 ways to stay calm by Dr. Tamar Chansky in your own research around the job hunt. Such as the first 5, Be Prepared, Plan, Rehearse, Eliminate the Unknown and Arrive Early.

 

The twist behind the article is Dr Chansky is helping us understand many of the normal ways our brains are wired for "Flight" or "Fight".

 

Knowing this is where most of the anxiety is coming from helps figure out how to deal with an upcoming interview as well as what to do the day of and during the interview to stay "calmer".

 

However, as a friend of mine says: "If you ever find yourself sitting back in the chair, it is time to get nervous." So don't be too relaxed during a job interview or the job search. Our body language is much more powerful in speaking than our own words. Both to ourselves as well as the hiring manager.

Being prepared to answer the question above helps you jump off the resume and become a memorable person during an interview.

 

Yet more important, if all of your personal branding helps support this question.

 

It is that much easier for others, including hiring managers, to see your strengths, skills and competence when they are looking to fill open positions.

 

The job search is not about filling in the blanks. It is about telling your story about why you are the best employee for the job you desire.

Even though we all use Google, and other, search engines every day. It is the small details Kristin discusses in the article which helps you shine during the job search.

 

In addition, the use of Google, or other search engines, is highly recommended before you finish up your resume.

 

Many of the job search sites forget to mention different regions of the US actually use different titles for the same position. Plus, it does not stop there, the keywords will also change by region based on job descriptions used.

 

Some dedicated time on Google upfront will save you time down the road if you plan on applying for jobs which are outside the region where you grew up. Odds are you know the lingo in your own back yard. However, be carefull if you are trying to relocate to a location which you are sure holds your dream job.

3 Social Enterprise Funding Platforms Online That Can Help Your Start Up

3 Social Enterprise Funding Platforms Online That Can Help Your Start Up | Career and Personal Development | Scoop.it
Many aspiring social entrepreneurs feel the fear of starting up because of a lack of funding. Many social enterprises are underfunded and their financial sustainability, scalability and social impact is hampered. Fortunately, there have been recent trends to overcome this funding issue. One of the major trends that I am seeing for social entrepreneurship funding is the growth of online platforms that help support seed stage companies. I was excited to visit the websites of these online platforms, and was enthusiastic to see that many of them are using the Kiva model of crowd funding to help social entrepreneurs worldwide.
