Argo (2012) 10 Things Recruiters Won't Tell You (Careerrealism, J. T. O'Donnell, 14.10.2011) Recruiters have one job: Find the right person for the position. Their performance is evaluated on how efficiently and effectively they match top talent to job requirements. Ironically, in the current economy, recruiters are finding their jobs harder than ever. I’m serious. There’s too much talent for them to weed through. What used to be “finding a needle in a haystack” has now become “finding a needle in ten haystacks.” As a result, recruiters have to determine a candidate’s marketability much quicker. Translation: Candidates must pay even more attention to the power of the first impression factor. People skills, attire, etc. all become more important when competition amongst talent is this fierce. Reality check: Those who are failing to make a good first impression get put in the “no” pile and are never contacted again. Now, most recruiters won’t tell you what you did wrong. Why? For one reason, they aren’t paid to give you the bad news. Top 10 Things Recruiters Won’t Tell You Your Next Step

Titanic (1997) The Worst LinkedIn Summary Ever (Careerrealism, J.T. O'Donnell, 28.07.2013) Okay folks, I’m going to give it to you straight: There are certain phrases when used in a LinkedIn summary that have the same effect as nails on a chalkboard. In other words, it’s such a turn-off as a hiring manager, it’s hard to focus on your profile as being credible after reading them. This is the profile summary someone asked me to review. I’ve underlined the phrases that make me want to cover my ears and run from my computer screen yelling, “NOOOOO. Not again!” A dynamic leader with the ability to drive change and proven track record of high accomplishments in various areas. What makes me cringe when I read this? For starters, the person is being completely subjective. If you are looking for a job in 2012, I am begging you not to ruin your profile with an unsubstantiated, over-used summary statement like this one. What should be there instead? Facts, facts, and more facts. 15+ years of experience leading teams of 10-200 staff members. See the difference? Your Next Step Watch Video Now ►

La liste de Schindler (1993) «Le majordome» de Lee Daniels (2013) · IMDb Installing Python on Mac OS X The latest version of Mac OS X, El Capitan, comes with Python 2.7 out of the box. You do not need to install or configure anything else to use Python. Having said that, I would strongly recommend that you install the tools and libraries described in the next section before you start building Python applications for real-world use. In particular, you should always install Setuptools, as it makes it much easier for you to use other third-party Python libraries. The version of Python that ships with OS X is great for learning but it’s not good for development. Doing it Right Let’s install a real version of Python. Before installing Python, you’ll need to install GCC. Note If you already have Xcode installed, do not install OSX-GCC-Installer. If you perform a fresh install of Xcode, you will also need to add the commandline tools by running xcode-select --install on the terminal. To install Homebrew, open Terminal or your favorite OSX terminal emulator and run Now, we can install Python 2.7:

7 counter-tips to entrepreneurs | The Official Iterate Blog I’d like to protest against some general advice, by giving some general advice. Written by @hauge2. Dave Kerpen’s post titled 7 tips to entrepreneurs is undoubtedly based on experience, and written with the best intentions. Even so, the more general advice about entrepreneurship I read (that includes stuff I’ve written myself), the more I ask myself what’s the value for the receiving end. Based on experience. Example: “Believe in yourself” is an advice we hear often. What’s more alarming, is how easily such advice is misinterpreted and used in ways that was never intended. And please: Take this with a pinch of salt. Tip 1: “Have an amazing support system”. Counter-tip: “Don’t get addicted to confirmations from your support system” Make sure you distinguish moral support from validated learning. Tip 2: “Expect utter hell, and you’ll be just fine” Thank god someone told me to go with “success” Counter-tip: “Expect to fail fast, and you’ll be better off” Tip 4: “Bring the best people together”

How to restore a system after accidentally removing all kernels? (Ask Ubuntu, 13.02.2014) The Passion Gospel (Virtuous Code, Avdi Grimm, 10.02.2014) When I was in my late teens and early twenties, like most people that age I had a tremendous amount of latent energy and passion. And like so many, I was trying to figure out to what I should devote that burning need to make a difference. I also, coincidentally, had a talent for, and love of, software development. The evangelists of the “passion gospel” have crafted a message which is purpose-built to appeal to younger-me. And fundamentally, it’s just Joel Osteen’s prosperity gospel, only flipped around. It’s an easy pill to swallow. Which would almost be OK if the world actually were being changed, and for the better. In rare cases the product is useful and/or successful. When you’re working from within the passion gospel you’re surrounded by people who will eagerly validate your project as “disruptive” and “important” no matter how inane it really is. Show me the money The gospel of passion, like the gospel of wealth, is a belief system. Remember Tim Draper? They need heroes.
