      5 Reasons No One is Following Your Business on Twitter

      Almost one-quarter of adult internet users are on Twitter, so it makes sense to include this platform in your marketing plans. By using Twitter, businesses can build brand awareness, promote their content, and drive traffic to their websites. However, that only works if people are actually following you. If no one is following your company on Twitter, you won’t benefit much from using the platform. So, where is everybody? Here are five reasons why no one is following your business on Twitter.

      Three Habits Of The Best Job Candidates I’ve Ever Interviewed

      Tell me if this sounds familiar: You continually make it to the interview stage, and then—crickets. You have the skills to get in the door, but for some reason, you stall out when it comes to getting the offer. It’s super frustrating, and you can’t help but wonder why.

      4 Steps to Get Your Mojo Back After They Hired Someone Else

      This is a crappy email to receive, particularly when you thought you had it in the bag. The exceptional opportunity that you believed was a perfect fit is no longer on the table. It seemed like an offer was definitely in the works, too; after all, you'd sent them references upon request, and even briefly chatted about possible compensation. Plus, you bonded with the hiring manager--you can't have made that up. In spite of an outstanding final interview, you didn't get the job--now what?

      Five New Rules My Company Set After A Hiring Disaster

      I soon realized we’d wound up with some real misfits. A couple of them turned out to be openly contemptuous of the company’s norms and culture, as well as of my own directives as a leader. Others simply hadn’t yet developed the skills they needed to do their jobs well. I should’ve fired the troublemakers early on, but I was afraid of a nasty confrontation and embarrassed to admit my errors. Instead, I spent the next few months hoping things would get better. They didn’t.

      Why More Tech Companies Are Hiring People Without Degrees

      One of Donald Trump’s loudest–and likely most impossible to fulfill –promises is to bring back coal jobs. He has made this appeal to people whose factory skills aren’t in demand anymore and likely don’t have the secondary education necessary to enter into other industries. Related: Why Are There So Many White Young American Men Without College Degrees? Whether or not more coal jobs are created, this need has started a conversation about laborers with different educational backgrounds.

      There are a few things in life that bring about extreme levels of stress, and looking for a job typically makes the list—which also includes moving, wedding planning, and way at the top, having a new child.

      I Built A Bot To Apply To Thousands Of Jobs At Once–Here’s What I Learned

      I have a great job, and there’s no rush to leave. As a director at a national nonprofit I’ve built some fantastic teams, but over the past year they’ve gotten so good at what they do that I’ve begun to wonder whether I’m still needed. So I started slowly casting about for new challenges, initially by applying (perhaps naively) to openings at well-known tech companies like Google, Slack, Facebook, and Squarespace.

      When You Agree to a Networking Meeting But Don’t Know What You’re Going to Talk About

      For some networking meetings, the agenda is obvious: your companies are considering doing business together, or you’re looking for a job and this person might help you get one. But many professionals often find themselves in networking meetings where the goals are murkier. Perhaps a friend thought you’d hit it off and introduced you, or you met the person briefly at an event and they’re following up for indeterminate reasons. In some cases, you’ll want to decline the invitation.

      How To Answer 8 Interview Questions You Should Never Be Asked In The First Place

      Sometimes, hiring managers are not HR specialists; they are simply looking for a talented person to join the team. In the quest to hire a colleague, they might ask off-putting or inappropriate interview questions. A job interview is not the time for a hiring manager to get input on his or her diversity recruitment strategy. If you’re the candidate, what should you do? It’s tough to outright correct a hiring manager or to refuse to answer–and that’s where tact comes in.

      How I Finally Quit My Job At The Gap To Freelance Full-Time

      At graduation, weeks before, I’d won a big scholarship, the one that’s given to just a single student in each department. When I walked up to receive it, the MC read aloud a short blurb I’d written–something self-deprecating about how after graduation I expected to be living at home with my parents, working in retail, and trying my best to become a freelance illustrator.

      The top 10 skills U.S. employers are after right now? They're all technical skills, according to our latest data here at LinkedIn.
