Working for the past 15 years as an SEO Specialist, both corporate in-house (3 long-term roles) and consulting (dozens of clients) for nearly equal amounts of time has offered an opportunity to view the SEO process from distinctly differing viewpoints. […]

Finding a way to interview even when a company is not actively looking for your skillset.
Last time I was looking for a career change, I stumbled across a startup based on a great idea and focusing on an industry I loved - and headquarters were a commutable distance from my home. “It would be incredible to work for that company,” I said to myself. I clicked over to their “careers” page, but they didn’t have an open position for SEO Director.Disheartened I went to the “Meet Our Team” link and reviewed the people that had started this c...

I took the photo below of the Bridge of the Americas near Panama City on the Pacific side of the Panama Canal. At the time, I didn't expect it might illustrate a job change article. Here comes that inevitable decision - consulting or corporate?
We’d all love it if things progressed perfectly through a choreographed and perfectly timed work transition from one company to another. That might look like this: You decide it’s time for a career move and begin to look for opportunities Recruiters suddenly reach out from companies you’ve had your sights set on You take several interviews by taking personal vacation days on short notice You receive an offer from your favorite of a half dozen ava...

Someone has finally begun to pay attention to Digital Last Will & Testament - in China http://www.scmp.com/news/world/article/1657043/experts-urge-people-think-about-digital-footprint-theyll-leave-behind 

I've been wondering about this issue for years and maybe it is coming to life (so to speak)? http://website101.com/small-business/will-digital-online-asset-inheritance/ 
Many of us turn to the virtual world to mark major life events - graduating from school, scoring a promotion, getting married or having a baby. ...

Still no solution to Digital Asset Inheritance issues I've discussed for years. http://website101.com/small-business/will-digital-online-asset-inheritance/ Bits and pieces are discussed here and there. Now Marketwatch talks about inheritance of digital books and music from our itunes library http://www.marketwatch.com/story/who-inherits-your-itunes-library-2012-08-23
Many of us will accumulate vast libraries of digital books and music over the course of our lifetimes. But when we die, our collections of words and music may expire with us.

Is your job description or your Job Title changing? 
It’s very likely that your job requirements have changed since initially defined by your predecessors and since you were hired for your current position. Those bullet points of what is required for your day-to-day role will almost certainly have been edited by management and HR to reflect company needs should they have to replace you. In fact, your performance and interests while doing your current job are quite likely to influence and even add e...

Not your usual buffalo wings! These wings are dressed up with fig preserves, giving them a hint of sweetness to go along with a fiery spice.

My Favorite Guacamole Recipe for Super bowl Parties http://www.cooking.com/recipes-and-more/recipes/guacamole-recipe-163.aspx#axzz3OXCFFODl  
Mashed avocado is a common garnish for cantina dishes. Add salt, chili, lime and cilantro, and you have guacamole, a combination that takes its name from ahuacatl (avocado) and molli (mixture), in the language of southern Mexico's Nahuatl Indians. This great dip is best made with dark, bumpy-skinned Hass avocados. Store with the pits resting in the guacamole to help prevent the dip from oxidizing.
