Finding Jobs in Charlotte

Finding a jobs in Charlotte is the same with any other big cities in the U.S. The bottom line is it’s a marketplace. The things you can do a decade ago to land yourself a job is not applicable anymore. The game of finding a career is now being played on a different ball park. The city of Charlotte even with its diverse history cannot be categorized as a city lagging in modern infrastructure. In fact it is one of those large metropolitan that’s on the forefront of things. What this implies is that, even with the competitiveness of the job market in this day of age; knowing how to use technology to your advantage is the key to being chosen.

Move forward away from the pack

English: Maryville, MO, 6-20-2007 -- North Wes...

As I was saying, 10 years ago a college diploma is good enough to secure you a job you’ll probably want to stay in the rest of your life. That is how much weight is put on education back then. That diploma alone can rocket you forward into a career because there were very little competition who as those diplomas in their hands. Well guess what? Fast forward things and every guy waiting to be called in the lobby has one so how can companies tell who is the right man or woman for the job? You need to leverage yourself by though social media.

Ask your father how he got his job. He probably had his dad helped him every step of the way; or he had a friend who is ahead a few years and then referred him to the firm. What I’m saying is, in the past relationships and connection meant a lot to people. Today with social networking sites, it’s not that apparent anymore. The good thing is if you know how to use social networking to you advantage it is a great tool to have. Find hiring managers in your direct contacts or from the contacts of your direct contacts. You are bound to find somebody who is doing the hiring in a company. Who knows, maybe you wouldn’t even have to wait in the lobby like the rest of the guys.

Place yourself on a pedestal

In the past companies never really paid attention to soft skills. These are individual qualities such as working well with others, leadership, communication and motivation. But today, have you been in any interview where the hiring manager didn’t throw questions obviously meant to gauge the level of those traits mentioned in you? They have been increase popular over the years and social media can help you prove that you’ve got what it takes. You’ll never know if that employer is going to make the effort of looking you up in the net to take a look at your social networking profile because it’s going to be the deal breaker between you and the guy on who gets chosen for the job. This is yet another reason why you have to take care of your online persona.


Events in Charlotte NC

April Fools, Facebook StyleAs someone who is involved with events in Charlotte NC, I am very pleased with how Facebook changed its interface. The change is a huge upgrade indeed. If it still hasn’t reached you profile yet, don’t fret, for it soon will.

You probably have done quite a number of guesses already since I haven’t mentioned it yet right?

Well the wait is over folks!

Facebook has finally added a calendar every time someone wants to look at some events. You know a calendar. That thing composed of pieces of paper hung somewhere on a wall in your house with dates on it. It has actual dates in boxes so you can write things in it so you would be able to see in a chronological order the events that you might not want to miss. It’s been around for eons and its usefulness has been passed down through generations. Apparently these factors still aren’t enough to persuade Facebook to add it a long time ago like they should have done.

Facebook is only the largest social networking company in the world which boasts about a billion user accounts around the world. You’ve read that right, the figures for Facebook has already blown through the roof that it doesn’t concern itself with millions anymore but with billions! Recently Facebook has now added a calendar view in their user interface to better help people managing events. Although it’s been long overdue and has taken a lot of public outcry first; many still gave r positive reviews about the changes they rolled out. The only negativity that people are saying right now is that the update is so recent in fact some accounts might not even feature it yet.

Monket CalendarLet us not forget as well that other than the “hackathon” (letting Facebook know that the people are screaming at them for not having it), one important thing that occurred that many consider as the turning point on how Facebook changed its views it Google plus’ introduction of their own event view. Oh what great things competitions brings! I figure this change will do wonders on how fun managing events would be like from this point.

There is a worthwhile event right now I think. It’s the launching of “The Dark Knight Rises “by Christopher Nolan. This would be the first day I’m going to try out this new event layout created by Facebook then. Fun to see how my friends’ reaction to this would be like; this will probably be the first time they would see this upgrade as well.

Glad to see Facebook has already seen the obvious. I know it had taken many of us to tell them what they’re missing, but you know that it’s better late than never.  Although for a company is worth many billions of dollars, I don’t think that excuse is valid for them. Try it out if you have it, if not you’ll just have to wait a few. I’m sure you’ll find it pleasant and much more fun to interact with which is really what social networking sites are supposed to do.

Charlotte Events – Need Help?

Charlotte is one of those few cities which both offer its visitors history and rapid growth towards the future. Like many other urban parts of the country, one could just simply look up wonderful events that have yet to happen on the internet. At any given moment, there is always someone within the city asking him; where is the best restaurant? Where do I go to have some fun? How do people in here use their leisure time? These questions are common; and they can be further magnified if coming from a tourist who has got limited time to spend in this great city. Taking a peep online allows us to take into account the festivities or Charlotte events the city has to offer in advance. With this knowledge in hand, we can make preparation or alteration with our own schedule so we would be sure that we are part of the event we want to participate in.

While I am looking for a particular event I could attend to on the internet, (I’m sure I’m not alone with this) I’ve got a social networking site on the other tab. Social networking sites have been the place on the internet where people from all sorts of places can gather on, well, one place. The only requisite is that you have a common interest or connection, people on social sites always finds a way to bump in to each other. I brought this topic up because in the case of scheduling or filling up a calendar event of a particular place, social networking sites can now also play a huge role of filling up those slots.

Smartphone Configuration for Social Media Mark...

Recently social networking sites have been integrating the power of those tiny devices we always carry with us called smart phones. Unless you have been living under a rock, you should know that no matter how small these devices may become most of them if not all contain an even tinier component that does so much. Most of the smart phones we keep inside our pockets are embedded with a component which lets the phone become part of the global positioning system or GPS. It is a system that locks on the GPS satellites above our heads and lets us pinpoint a location anywhere in the world as long as we can lock on the needed signal. Social networking sites have always been groundbreaking with the features they are introducing the public and utilizing the existent technology of GPS has been nothing less.

Anyone who carries a smart phone or a GPS enabled device can now log in to some of the most popular social networking sites and scour their localities of new adventures. With this technology at hand, anyone can have the whole city covered. The variety of Charlotte events that one has to choose from can be daunting, that is why we can ask the help of our families and friends at any time with the help of websites that offer the service.

So, would it be to a museum filled with historic warplanes for today or to the Charlotte Bobcats? Don’t take too much time on it and ask a friend who’s been there.
