Welcome to the March 8, 2009 edition of Corporate Vigilance presenting an array of opinions, instruction, and helpful information as it relates to business and personal finance.
Simon Stapleton presents How To Find Work in Your Dream Organization Using Facebook And LinkedIn | SimonStapleton.com posted at Career & Personal Development for CIOs, Technical Professionals and Self-Professed Geeks, saying, "By combining your LinkedIn profile with Facebook ads, you’ll discover an effective way of getting yourself in front of potential employers who use Facebook (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?) It’s a guerrilla job-hunting tactic that enables you to search the hidden job market and find or even create the best jobs before they hit the job sites."
debergerac78 presents Was Allen Stanford in league with Bernie Madoff? | The Business Ethics Blog posted at The Business Ethics Blog, saying, "Yet another billionaire businessman has been accused of massive fraud--bad news for an already jittery market."
Jim DeSantis presents Is Diversity In The Workplace Really Working? posted at On Line Tribune | Workplace, saying, "I know that diversity in the workplace has been a big topic of conversation ever since the early 1990s when research supported the demographics that, by the year 2000, 85% of the entering workforce would be female, African-American, Asian-American, Latino, or new immigrants. The fact that white males would be a minority entering the workplace was a wake up call for corporate America. How have we done since then?"
Martin Russell presents Marketing Bad Luck posted at Word of Mouth Marketing, saying, "I have just come back from Melbourne, Victoria. Great to be there for the live event, and to meet everyone (including a few of my subscribers too whom I had never met before.) But the whole event had a slightly different atmosphere, because Victoria has just gone through Australia’s worst ever natural disaster."
Shaun Connell presents How to Pick a Niche posted at Make Money Online, saying, "Before you get a website, you have to find your niche. A “niche” is a specific topic that you’ll base your entire website on. The topic might be “financial planning” or “baseball” or “knitting.” Regardless of the topic you choose (it can be anything) it needs to meet a few common criteria."
Wally Bock presents Planning for an Uncertain Future posted at Three Star Leadership Blog, saying, "Wally Bock notes that too many leaders are planning for the future like they always have. That won't work in a whitewater economy."
Simon Stapleton presents How To Become a Highly Paid IT Professional (And Be Rich) | SimonStapleton.com posted at Career & Personal Development for CIOs, Technical Professionals and Self-Professed Geeks, saying, "Most of us want to be rich. At least rich enough so that we can make our own choices of who we work with, when we work and how we work. How about you?"
Silicon Valley Blogger presents 2009 Economic Stimulus Package: Obama’s Plan For Your Money? Tax Cuts and Spending posted at The Digerati Life, saying, "Thanks!"
The Smarter Wallet presents Will The Obama Economic Stimulus Check and 2009 Stimulus Plan Save The Economy? posted at The Smarter Wallet, saying, "Thanks!"
Joe Manausa presents A Small But Significant Shift In The Housing Market posted at Really Better Real Estate, saying, "One key trend to pay attention to in any local real estate market is the movement of the sales success trend. What this measures is the total number of home sold divided by the total of homes listed (put on the market) during the same period of time."
debergerac78 presents Muskogee nursing home’s failure to apologize triggers a predictable lawsuit | The Business Ethics Blog posted at The Business Ethics Blog, saying, "An elderly man was beated to death by another resident, and the nursing home neither informs the victims family nor apologizes for its negligence. Exactly what is a nursing supposed to be doing, if not take responsibility for its residents?"
Tushar Mathur presents How do we Cut Marketing Costs without hindering Business Growth posted at Small Business Resource, saying, "As business owners and/or marketers, we’re all under pressure to cut costs. Unfortunately, many business owners get so intent on reducing costs, they lose sight of what it’s going to do to the business. It’s hard to grow - or even survive - if you don’t have any customers."
Praveen presents The Financial Crisis, Madoff Scandal, Bailout, and Black Boxes posted at My Simple Trading System.
