How to Hunt for a Job Using Social Media

March 14, 2014 Leave a comment

Securing a job is the tough part, but scouting an open position? All it takes is a strategic scroll through your favorite social media accounts.

Sites like Twitter and Facebook can be fun and frivolous, but they’re also viable business opportunities. Plumbing through accounts, hashtags and personal pages could help launch next potential career.

Want to find a writing opportunity in a town near you? Just look up a hashtag on Twitter. Want to stay up to date with a company’s career openings? “Like” them on Facebook. Want to create a beautiful resume that’ll catch a recruiter’s or hiring manager’s eye? Head over to Pinterest.

Here’s how to land your perfect job via social media.

1. Twitter

In 140 characters or less, Twitter can help you find your dream gig. It’s teeming with job applications and professional networking pages, if you know where to find them.

a. Searches: Use that search bar to look for terms that apply to the job you want. For best results, type in words like “jobs,” “hiring” and other specifics that apply to your desired field and location; for example, “writer” and “New York City.”

b. Hashtags: Typing #jobs and #hiring will result in a plethora of tweets from those seeking employees. Employers who want to cast a wide net will often tweet out job applications, with accompanying hashtags.

c. Tweet often: Though it depends on your career of choice, tweeting is a great way to network with like-minded folks in your profession. Follow businesses and people you’re interested in and don’t be afraid to send them the occasional tweet. (On that note, make sure your Twitter account is polished and professional).

d. Follow away: There are dozens and dozens of Twitter accounts dedicated to posting job applications. Go to the search bar and type in “jobs,” then click “People” on the left-hand side. You’ll soon see all the Twitter accounts with “jobs” in the username and can gleefully press the “Follow” button.

2. Facebook

Facebook is an undeniable social media juggernaut. According to its representatives, these are the top tips for trying to get a job through Facebook:

a. “Like” some pages: Most companies strive for dynamic social media presences, and Facebook Pages are engagement 101. By “Liking” them, you can get daily updates about their activity. Plus, they will likely post links to available job applications.

b. Private/Public: Take a thorough look at your privacy settings on Facebook, and make sure you know exactly how others view your Timeline. However, you should consider setting your work and education info public, enabling others to see your professional history.

c. Stay updated: Make sure all of your work and education info is up to date and reflects your current position and past experience.

d. Add “Professional Skills:” A few months ago, Facebook added a “Professional Skills” portion to the “About” section. Underneath work and education, add skills you’ve acquired, optimizing your professional appeal.

3. LinkedIn

Perhaps the most obvious of job hunting sites, LinkedIn is the network of choice for professionals.

a. Connect: Unlike Facebook, it’s a little less creepy to connect with strangers on LinkedIn, because everyone there is looking for networking opportunities. Connect to people who have careers you’re interested in, and search around for those who might only be one degree away from you. For inspiration, check out the member stories portion of LinkedIn’s blog, where users share their success anecdotes about networking through the site.

b. Jobs Board: Not only does the site provide you with advice and connections, but it also has a jobs board highlighting available opportunities in nearly every field.

c. Endorsements and recommendations: There’s a portion of your profile dedicated to glowing recommendations and endorsements from your peers. Try to get as many as you can, and your page’s likability will instantly boost.

d. Share more: According to LinkedIn’s Career Expert, Nicole Williams, sharing articles or content with your network boosts your chances 10 times for getting contacted by a recruiter. When you share content, it proves your knowledge in the industry.

e. List all the things: Your profile is 12 times more likely to be viewed by a hiring manager if you have a detailed list of work experience, Williams says. The more robust your profile is, the more experienced and hirable you look.

4. Tumblr

You can use Tumblr, that vast Internet playground of GIFs and rabid fandoms, for help in the job search.

a. Search tags: In the search bar, look for tagged terms like “hiring” and “jobs.” It’s a bit harder to separate the wheat from the chaff in the tag-happy blogging community, but you’ll still be able to find plenty of cool companies advertising open jobs via Tumblr.

b. Start Tumbling: This is especially important if you’re the creative type. A Tumblr account attuned to your interests, and full of your own original content, automatically ups your unique appeal to employers. In addition, a good Tumblr following can lead to job offers from employers who happened to stumble upon your site.

5. Pinterest

Yes, Pinterest is more than just a pretty place to find wedding inspiration and delicious recipes.

a. Pin your résumé: Tired of the standard, one-sheet format? Use a Pinterest board to “pin” your résumé. You can highlight certain aspects of your experience and add photos and links. See Rachael G. King, a social media manager at Sidecar who created a “living résumé.”

b. Follow these pages: For a never-ending well of job tips and opportunities, follow these seven helpful Pinterest boards.

How Multiple Websites & Stores Work

October 15, 2013 Leave a comment

One of Magento’s advanced features allows for management of multiple websites and stores within one installation, and we have an amazing system to support this:  GWS – aka “Global, Website, Store.”

  • Global: This refers to the entire installation.
  • Website: Websites are ‘parents’ of stores.  A website consists of one or more stores. Websites can be set up to share customer data, or not to share any data
  • Store (or store view group): Stores are ‘children’ of websites.  Products and Categories are managed on the store level.  A root category is configured for each store view group, allowing multiple stores under the same website to have totally different catalog structures.
  • Store View: A store needs one or more store views to be browse-able in the front-end.  The catalog structure per store view will always be the same, it simply allows for multiple presentations of the data in the front.  90% of implementations will likely use store views to allow customers to switch between 2 or more languages.
  • multiple_websites_diagram
  • Example scenario

    Let’s say you want to sell appliances, consumer electronics, and DVD’s and CD’s.  For the purpose of this example we’ll separate the catalog into two stores and three websites.  The appliance line will be sold on its own website, and the remaining items on another website.  You bought appliances.com and coolstuff.com for this purpose.  You don’t want customer data and order data to be shared between the two websites, so data sharing will be turn off in the configuration between them.

    Under coolstuff.com you create two stores – Electronics, and Media.  Consumer electronics will be sold through the electronics store, and the media items through the Media store.  Since each line of items is very extensive, it makes sense to create a separate category structure for the Media store and the Electronics store… otherwise the category tree would be large and cumbersome.  When the stores are created, you simply assign a different root category to each store.

    In addition, you want to feature your catalog for both websites in English and Spanish.  To do this, you will create an English and Spanish store view for each of the three stores.  When entering catalog data you can switch store views in the admin to create the additional product titles, descriptions etc…

    Configuration

    The configuration of Magento uses GWS as a kind of tree when setting up the stores.  When it is initially installed, all configuration settings point to “default”, meaning the global installation.  A check box next to each configurable item can be un-checked in a particular website or store view, to indicate that this item will be specific to this website or store view.  For example, you will offer authorize.net as a payment module on both websites, but you only want to offer google checkout on coolstuff.com.  In the configuration, you’d select coolstuff.com in the store view drop-down, find the google API settings, and un-check “use default” in the google checkout tab.  For this specific website you can now enable or disable google checkout.

    All modules in the configuration function the same way.

    Moving on to store views – after a store view has been created, you can configure the layout and visual settings of the store view however you’d like – a drop-down allows customers to switch between store views.  This will reload the current page with the alternate view.  This can be used for multiple languages, but can also be a way to easily do A-B testing between several design packages to see if one yields more conversions.  The possibilities are endless!

    The above is meant as a basic overview of this functionality – the best way to learn how to set it all up is to install Magento and get in there and start playing around.

Jquery Timeago Implementation with PHP.

Nowadays timeago is the most important functionality in social networking sites, it helps to updating timestamps automatically. Recent days I received few requests from 9lessons readers that asked me how to implement timeago plugin with dynamic loading live data using PHP. In this post I am just presenting a simple tip to implement timeago in a better way.

Why Live Query
LiveQuery utilizes the power of jQuery selectors by binding events or firing callbacks for matched elements auto-magically, even after the page has been loaded and the DOM updated.

Code
Contains javascipt code. $(this).timeago()- here this element is refers to timeagoclass selector of the anchor tag.

 

// <![CDATA[
javascript” src=”js/jquery.min.js”>
// ]]>
// <![CDATA[
javascript” src=”js/jquery.livequery.js”>
// ]]>
// <![CDATA[
javascript” src=”js/jquery.timeago.js”>
// ]]>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
$(document).ready(function(){
$(“.timeago”).livequery(function() // LiveQuery
{
$(this).timeago(); // Calling Timeago Funtion
});
});
</script>

//HTML & PHP Code
<!–?php
$time=time(); // Current timestamp eg: 1371612613
$mtime=date(“c”, $time); // Converts to date formate 2013-06-19T03:30:13+00:00
?>

You opened this page <a href=’#’ class=’timeago’ title=”<!–?php echo$mtime; ?>“></a>

 

SINGAM II- My Review- EXCLUSIVE

July 5, 2013 1 comment

English: Anushka Shetty at the TeachAIDS launc...

Continuation of Durai Singam‘s mission in thoothukudi followed by SouthAfrica..
As witnessed in the ads it is an in and out mindless masala movie with the routine route of a fight follwed by a song and comedy sequence and sentiment
in the whole first half.
There are so many ribtickling serious scenes in the movie as well.
Suriya- He performed well indeed. Fire in acting.Few scenes were really powerful especiallly the interval block and first 20 mins
of the second half.
Apart from it drug smuggling,gypsy chasing,hero flying, etc., etc., blah blah you can predict the next scene well in advance..
Hari‘s route is this but there are so many obstacles he should have seen it. Trying to make the scenes jet speed is ok but it should
have continued throughout the movie.
Santhanam does the humour part,nice but silly dialogues and Vivek did a role similiar to sathyan in thuppaki.
Hansika was so cute. Her role is heavier than Anushka who filled the glamour portions in songs.
Coming to DSP the music is below average and the singam theme was ok for few moments. “Singam Dance” song was the best of the worst.
There are lots of starcast among them Mukesh rishi and rahman doing the Villain role followed by Danny the Afrian drug leader who was disgusting.
Graphics and VFX works horrible,
V.T.Vijayan failed to cut a lot of unnecessary scenes.
Priyan’s cinematography was apt for the movie.
It is nothing wrong in doing masala and commercial movies but it should satisy atleast fans of the hero.
If it doesn’t satisy even the fans then it is no use in marketting, still the makers of this movie
are keen in telugu market value and i believe that they overpowered the hero with tons of masses and ultimately it reversed against the
hero.People however will be forced to go to the theatres in the first week by the promotions.After that it may run only in tv ads as superhit.
And the movie is very lengthy almost close to 3 hrs.. you need some patience as well..
On the whole to sum it up there are some noteworthy scenes then and there you can surpass it by those saviours.

Singam II-Mission failed to fullfill
