Some good advice from +Medium " These characteristics will ebb and flow to varying degrees and should not be considered concrete rules. Rather, these behaviors serve as a guideline for creating a consistently positive, and as a result, a consistently more creative place to work." #culture #jobs #employeeengagement

Great post on how to embrace the Tech world...and fitting in: "There are some characteristics of the space that have nothing to do with coding or technical preparation — and everything to do with attitude, EQ and flexibility." Via +Medium

"Your social network is a powerful asset. Those of you who've followed my job search tips and recruiting advice will not be surprised to hear me say this. You'll have seen me write passionately about how to be effective at social networking, talk about the impact your social network is having on your job search and how you can use your social network to effectively engage with potential employers."

Interesting infographic....
 
Every year, the American Time Use Survey asks thousands of Americans to record a minute-by-minute account of one single day. For many “prime-age” adults, those between the ages of 25 and 54, a significant chunk of time on weekdays is taken up by work. But for the almost 30 million prime-age Americans who don’t work, a typical weekday looks far different.

This post is geared more towards start-up companies, but could essentially be good advice for companies across the board. Would you add anything to the list?
A good job is hard to find, but every entrepreneur knows a good employee is even harder to keep. As an entrepreneur, one must ensure his or her company is staffed with people who look forward to coming to work every day for more than a paycheck. Through the years, I found that it was easy to keep employees motivated – all I had to do was provide them with a leader worth following and tasks worth fulfilling. But after almost seven years in busines...

This is LinkedIn's third annual ranking, based on the analysis over 35 billion interactions between companies and members on LinkedIn. The way companies are ranked boils down to LinkedIn member awareness of a company (e.g. how many people have viewed your employees’ profiles within the past year) and engagement on LinkedIn (e.g., how many members have followed your company’s Company or Career Page within the past year).

"It should come as no surprise that a college degree is no longer the golden ticket to a good career that it once was. It certainly helps, but the letters on your diploma are no longer a guarantee of a good job. In fact, employers are looking more at valuable soft skills, like teamwork and communication skills, when making hiring decisions." Via +Bernard Marr

"What that means, though—and how to measure it—is less clear. Employers complain that colleges are not producing graduates who can solve problems and connect the dots on complex issues, but bosses stumble when pressed to describe exactly what skills make critical thinkers. That leaves job seekers wondering what employers really want and, once on the job, unsure of whether they’re supposed to follow the rules or break them." Via +Wall Street Journal

Interesting piece +Ron McManmon. Unless I missed something, the 50% less claim is just based on assumed pay growth if you change jobs several times vs. stay in your current role - right?

I would agree that changing employers every few years can produce leaps in salary if each move is made for a good promotion. But this analysis over eggs the pudding! The same employee who is good enough to get a promotion every two years by moving doesn't EVER secure a single promotion if they stay with their existing employer?! That doesn't add up. 

What I would find more credible is the claim that people who miss out on a promotion can accelerate their earnings by then changing employer to a company that will reward them for making the move by giving them a promotion. That's where I've seen those who move outpace those who play it safe and stay put.

+Suzy Tonini - certainly agree with your assessment that contracting is gaining momentum and being able to regularly renegotiate your true worth may well be one reason for this...
