Eye View Business, Make Your Resume Stand Out In A Crowd

July 13, 2012

You’ve tweaked and crafted your résumé, spell-checked it at least twice. But have you included a “QR code?”

Those are the bar codes that are popping up in newspapers, on consumer products and elsewhere, that can be scanned by smartphones. Some people are adding these to their résumés to direct employers to online portfolios, contact information and other application materials.

“People are definitely getting creative,” said Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources at jobs site “Individuals can create a code and link it to other information about their background.”

However, applicants need to know their audience and should think carefully before submitting a résumé that some employers may view as hokey. Furthermore, many employers spend less than a minute reviewing a résumé—they won’t have time for or interest in videos and charts.

  Given the nature of this drive- by world make your resume stand out in a crowd..

Eye View Business, Stupid Is As Stupid Does

February 8, 2011

( – The announcement early Monday morning that America Online (AOL) is buying Arianna Huffington’s liberal Web site, The Huffington Post, for $315 million — $300 million in cash — left at least one conservative outraged.

“This proves AOL News has lost its mind,” said L. Brent Bozell III, president of the Media Research Center.

Huffington, who switched from being a conservative commentator to a “liberal/progressive” writer in the ‘90s, will lead the newly formed Huffington Post Media Group, which “will integrate all Huffington Post content with AOL Content, including news, tech, women, local, multicultural, entertainment, video, community, and more,” according to the news release issued Monday morning.“They must be in such dire straits that they’ve been blinded by the millions and think an acquisition of The Huffington Post is worth sacrificing credibility and objectivity,” Bozell said.

Stupid is as stupid does as AOL shares plummet with pending relationship issues.

Eye View Business, National Enquirer Goes Into Chaper 11, Looking For Ways To Trim The Fat

November 2, 2010

After years of dishing tales of celebrity folly and misfortune, The National Enquirer’s publisher has fallen on hard times of its own.

American Media Inc. plans to seek federal bankruptcy protection in the next two weeks or so. The privately held company, based in Boca Raton, Fla., announced its intention Monday without sharing any details about its finances.

American Media, whose other publications beside The National Enquirer include Star, Shape, Men’s Fitness and Fit Pregnancy, is trying to get most of its creditors to back its reorganization plan before it files for Chapter 11 protection. About 80 percent of American Media’s bondholders already have expressed their support, the company said.

Eye View Business, Dems Push Decision To Extend Tax Cuts Until After Midterm, More Uncertainty For Businesses

September 24, 2010

WASHINGTON—Democrats abandoned plans to vote before Election Day on extending Bush-era tax cuts for the middle class while eliminating them for better-off Americans, spooked by protests from vulnerable incumbents and bleak prospects for passage.

With time running out to plan for 2011, the delay raises uncertainty for small businesses and individual taxpayers over their future liabilities. It also sets up a titanic battle over taxes after the election.

If returning lawmakers don’t pass legislation by Dec. 31, the expiration date of the cuts, tax rates would rise not only on income, but also on estates, capital gains and dividends. Important corporate tax credits and relief from the Alternative Minimum Tax also are up for renewal.

Democratic leaders and President Barack Obama made the proposal to extend the middle-class tax breaks a centerpiece of their midterm campaign strategy. They now face the possibility their members are vulnerable to Republican charges that they have failed to prevent taxes from rising for almost everyone.

More uncertainty for business and a vote to be made by pissed off Dems who will lose in November and  will be vacating their offices in January. Poor Turbo Tax will be hitting Costcos later than ever..


Eye View Business, Burger King Sales Low, Unemployment, Calorie Content, Creepy Factor High

September 3, 2010

 Burger King’s new ruler could help its empire expand.

Burger King Holdings Inc. sealed a deal Thursday to sell itself for $3.26 billion to 3G Capital, an investment firm with strong ties to Latin America. The fast-food chain’s chairman and CEO, John Chidsey, said the deal will help it expand more rapidly overseas.

Burger King has more than 12,100 locations around the world and perennially lags its far larger competitor McDonald’s Corp. It struggled to keep up with its rival during the economy’s roller coaster of the past two years.

Its biggest problem: high unemployment among its most important, but notoriously fickle, group of customers — young men between 18 and 34, whom it has targeted with big burgers like the 930-calorie BK Quad Stacker and edgy ads featuring the creepy King character.

Women having it their way, want nothing to do with  Creepy King…
