Ease creates competition
As technology makes it easier for companies to be more efficient and precise in finding the right (best) talent, it's also provided the same capabilities for candidates to find the right company.  This raises the stakes for those on both sides.

New tools allow us to better develop our public facing personal/professional brands.  But putting in the time and effort required to do just that is actually just the minimum price of entry and its one accessible to anyone.  Likewise companies not only need to market to their customers, they now need to be proactive on the perception of their culture to prospective employees.

The ironic part is that all this new technology actually calls for us to be more human.  With everyone having access to the same tools to make better decisions and create a more focused approach to hiring/career building, the best way to stand out still remains by establishing more real life personal relationships.

"Code it Forward"
I love hearing about this kind of philanthropy. Someone who's not only trying to better himself but make himself accountable for creating a system so others to can do the same.

Not exactly a "non-technophile" explanation, but still brings far more clarity to why this is a concern.
You've probably heard about Heartbleed. You've probably been told that, as far as security vulnerabilities go on the Internet, it's pretty damned scary...

Know what to prepare for and why you're preparing for it
Too often I hear people say they felt they nailed an interview only to find out the feeling wasn't mutual.  though there are many variables that play into why this happens, in many cases the root of it is derived from the answers to these 3 questions:

1- Have you got the skills, expertise and experience to perform the job?
2- Are you enthusiastic and interested in the job and the company?
3- Will you fit into the team, culture and company?

Its important to remember it's not just about you preparing in advance so that you can make yourself seem as much like the person they want to hire.  It's equally as important for you you to determine if there actually is the right alignment.

1- You may have the right skills and experience, but will there be anything new to challenge you and help you grow?  If so, how big of a gap is there?
2- Be it a hot startup or an established player with a good rep, is the company specific opportunity and space the company plays in really one that you'll eagerly want to wake for every morning?
3- How self aware are you about your work style, the people you work best with, and the environments you thrive in?

As you do your homework before an interview you may find that as exciting as an opportunity may sound, the reality is it may not align with who you are and/or want to be.  Though they may not always know how to verbalize it, a good interviewer can pick up on this.

In the end realizing the misalignment early on is beneficial for everyone. It will spare everyone involved in creating a situation where you're not giving your best because you're not being truly fulfilled and/or are not pursuing the path you want to follow.
Even for the most fearless amongst us, job interviews can be nerve wracking. In order to give us the best chance of success we tend to prepare for many of the difficult questions we anticipate,

Interesting food for thought...
Millennial workers see the boss as a friend. They do not want a hierarchical relationship with that boss, and less than a third of them feel the role their manager currently plays fits their image of

I had not been here in about 6 years and now I remember why. It's a disgrace that this is an Argentine steakhouse as I usually am secure with higher expectations when it comes to Argentine Steak preparation. My filet mignon was undercooked, fatty, and bland. The sauteed spinach tasted like seaweed _(and not in a good way)_ . Overall the whole meal was an uninspired let down. Especially for what they charged me.

You seriously can't go wrong with anything on the menu. From the raw bar to the bisque to sole, I had one of the best seafood meals ever. Service was good not great but nothing that would discourage me from going back. I was impressed with how busy they were for a Tuesday night. Great place to break bread with friends or a date.
