Thx 4 the gr8 intrvu! - 0 views

  • Hiring managers like Johnson say an increasing number of job hunters are just too casual when it comes to communicating about career opportunities in cyberspace and on mobile devices. Thank-yous on paper aren't necessary, but some applicants are writing e-mails that contain shorthand language and decorative symbols, while others are sending hasty and poorly thought-out messages to and from mobile devices. Job hunters are also using social-networking sites like Facebook and MySpace to try to befriend less-than-willing interviewers.
    After interviewing a college student in June, Tory Johnson thought she had found the qualified and enthusiastic intern she craved for her small recruiting firm. Then she received the candidate's thank-you note, laced with words like "hiya" and "thanx," along with three exclamation points and a smiley-face emoticon. "That e-mail just ruined it for me," says Johnson, president of New York-based Women For Hire Inc. "This looks like a text message."

Little Red Riding Mood [Video] - 14 views

    Spoof on Little Red Riding Hood. Cute, short safety video for student education to initiate a discussion about friending people you don't really know on Facebook.
    This video was great to teach students about sharing information. A good way to start a lesson on internet safety or use in your curriculum. Use a wiki site and make a curriculum where the students can do a self study with some of the videos.
