With a global + targeted + local reach comprised of interconnected professionals, businesses, organizations or individuals, social media is the most powerful promotional tool available today!
Do you know that in a recent survey, “One in five tech executives said that a candidate’s social media profile caused them not to hire that person?“ and that 37% of all companies take a look at candidates’ social media profiles as a part of their recruitment evaluation process?
Yet, if you ask random passerbys to define social media, you are likely to get mentions of (Facebook! Reddit! YouTube!) than an actual explanation of its usefulness.
Blinders are useful in potentially distracting situations because they increase one’s ability to focus.
For example, blinders are useful for removing potentially distracting or scary scenes from a horse’s vision.
By preventing the horse from seeing everything in it’s peripheral vision, the rider can better control the horse’s focus or keep it on target.

Sometime ago, Glendal (a project manager on this website) asked me to suggest a solution for the current unemployment crises facing the USA. While still working on an answer to that, the same question was again popped to me in a recent interview with Dice.com.
Since this is a question weighing on the minds of people … Today, it will be my pleasure to answer the question: “How To Solve The Unemployment Crises Facing The United States of America.“.
Learning a skill is one thing … knowing how to market, a skill a completely different thing!
That is why for example, some qualified business analysts fail to get a job that other less experienced business analysts succeed in getting.
Don’t assume that because you know a skill through self study, formal education or training, you can just go out and get a job … because there is more to finding a job than that!
Some people are really good at selling themselves … even when they know little about the subject at hand.
