All these things advertised, sounds great. I can not wait to test them as soon as possible.


I think LinkedIn is a super business tool, but the lack of interaction is the biggest problem (as on other platforms). Maybe this new tool will change this problem soon.

 

You have the same feeling?

Sonya Withrow's comment, May 2, 2013 11:03 AM
I agree with Martin. LinkedIn is very a very professional network and I am excited to utilize the new tool.

Stop Requiring College Degrees

Stop Requiring College Degrees | isw consulting ENG | Scoop.it

If you're an employer, there are lots of signals about a young person's suitability for the job you're offering. If you're looking for someone who can write, do they have a blog, or are they a prolific Wikipedia editor? For programmers, what are their TopCoder or GitHub scores? For salespeople, what have they sold before? If you want general hustle, do they have a track record of entrepreneurship, or at least holding a series of jobs?

 

These days, there are also a range of tests you can administer to prospective employees to see if they're right for the job. Some of them are pretty straightforward. Others, like Knack, seek to test for attributes that might seem unrelated, but have been shown by prior experience to be associated with good on-the-job performance.

I wonder if these high-tech schools are not just made to permit to schools to earn the most money possible. If you have a $ 100,000 debt at the end of your college education, you know why you go to work every day ... I think it is a shame!

This is a game-changing situation for the professional field of our lives.

Why You Should Work From a Coffee Shop, Even When You Have an Office

Why You Should Work From a Coffee Shop, Even When You Have an Office | isw consulting ENG | Scoop.it
Here at Lifehacker, we've often encouraged switching up your working environment tospark creativity and prevent burnout. Even taking a few days each month to work in a new place can benefit you greatly. Here, entrepreneur Wesley Verhoeve explains the benefits of his favorite non-office space: the coffee shop. While team Family Records was in between offices in early 2012, we had 6 weeks to bridge until our new space was ready. During that time we were fortunate enough to be taken in as guests by awesome companies for stretches of time, and for the remainder we took over corners of coffee shops all over Brooklyn and Manhattan. The experience of working out of coffee shops was so positive that even after we moved into our new home, I made sure to get in a few "coffee shop days" each month. For carpal tunnel related reasons alone, I would not recommend working out of coffee shops every day, but here are some reasons why it might be great to try it for one or two days every month.

Yes Robert, I totally agree with you. Today, I went to one of my favorite places (a brewery ... I do not like beer in particular, but I like this place for work). But I know, it's not for everyone ... ;-)

I've been working out of coffe shops for years and agree its a great setting...and the perks aren't bad either.

The End of a Job as We Know It

The End of a Job as We Know It | isw consulting ENG | Scoop.it

The concept of a job, as we know it, is starting to go away.

 

Over the last year I've been speaking with many corporate business and HR leaders and have heard a common theme:we need our organizations to be more agile. We need to redesign the organization so we can learn faster, communicate better, and respond more rapidly to change. This quest for the agile organization has changed the nature of what we call a job.

Yes David, a long time ago that things have changed ... finally happily. I think you gave good advice to your children, who will always be on the safe side if they focus on life and relationships.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 16, 2013 4:43 AM
@ Don - I read an article last week on the same subject and I think you say right that deep skills are (or should be) the currency of the job. More and more companies have understood this reality today.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 16, 2013 4:54 AM
@Trumans - Yes, I totally agree with you. Relationships and our network is more important than ever. It is sometimes simply complicated, for me, to set a limit ... :-). Your training seems to be great, if you can put together five acronyms and if those who follow the training understands the strong message sent.
