So are there any real qualifications for this job? I’ve thought about it quite a bit over the last few weeks. And the only clear almost un-negotiable one I could come up with is that you have to be a guy
My superpower is getting things done. I am The Producer.
I like to create things. I have a whole closet full of fabric. I own crayons. I have every color of paint they make. I am good at matching.
And the only clear almost un-negotiable one I could come up with is that you have to be a guy. A guy who’s been in a serious and stable relationship for a significant period of time. That’s it. Every boss I’ve worked with well has met that criterion. Weird, huh?
Can anyone tell me how the memory of these people is served by taking the land from the owners to build the memorial? It's an irony that the people on Flight 93 died trying to protect others, but the land owners find themselves entirely without protection as the park service makes a land grab.
The best part? (Outside of getting to hang with Seth for six months, that is.) - The part where Seth says this is going to be about practical application of (drum roll) stuff I'm actually interested in!! I work with accountants right now. I've tried to read books on financial reports and corporate finance. Just can't make it through because that's not where my passion lies. I want to dream big. I want to grow our firm's internal community. I want to find new places to share my thoughts.
"I am guilty of being impatient with the journey. I want to be there already. I'm still pushing for a four-day work week in our office. So I love the idea of something short and intense so we get to where we're actually using what we learn."
Great for Google for setting standards for hiring. But a GPA requirement for anyone not straight out of school (and maybe even then) slices your pool of potential employees down to those who are good at school, spent college with no social life or under-challenged themselves...(For the record, I meet the requirement on both of my degrees. I am very good at school.)
Bio: Fulfilling my generation's mission to question everything. Heavy doses of questions, social media, books, marketing, quilting, indignation and Squidoo.
Having said that, I seriously doubt the Google application reads "Name:_______ GPA:____" and that's it, so I don't understand why she singles out asking for a data point that many, many companies have asked for over the years.
Next, don't try to control the power in your job search. That's sounds empowering and all, but really it's bullshit and we know it to be so. You have no power because you need someone else's money.
Marketing is a science, like finance, economics, chemistry and physics.
The only difference is that the science of marketing has the error rates of 18th century physics.
"Her unique skill is getting things done, and she wants a place where she can exercise that power to the fullest."
I don't know if there are facts, but you can run multiple version of an ad and determine which one gets the best click-through rate. You can measure campaign spend over time and compare results versus costs.
Fifteen years ago, someone coined the term, Eternal September. Because each September sees an entire crop of freshman showing up at college, you need to assume that you have to start teaching protocols all over again. Once a year, it's a whole new audience, and they need to learn the ropes.
In 1998, Godin sold Yoyodyne to Yahoo! for $30 million and became its vice president of direct marketing, a position he held until 2000.
Without the producer, the executive producer is just holding meetings with people, but no movies are made. Without the producer, the director has nowhere to shoot, no film and no costumes. Without the producer, the actors never get scripts and have no trailers to crash in.
The producer gets things done. Without the producer, there is no movie.
