    How to Get a Job as a Web Developer

    Job searching sucks. It's probably one of the most challenging, and if you're like me, depressing experiences you'll go through. This is especially true if you're entering a new industry, or if you're seeking a job with a higher salary. It's a roller coaster ride, to say the least.This is why I decided to become a teaching assistant for a web development boot camp early in my software engineer career. I know what it's like to feel imposter syndrome, to be rejected by companies you passionately want to work for, and to doubt your ability to get hired in tech. In this article I’ll cover:

    Becoming ABW

    I started this blog when I was 16. I was a sophomore in college and decided it was time to make an account that focused on what interested me. Since there was really no representation for Black Women, or dark-skin women, I took the time to upload one post per day. I did not think much of it. The number of my followers grew, but I did not pay much attention to it.

    4 Types of Bias to Avoid in Market Research

    In spite of the best efforts you may put forth, it will be hard to completely eliminate any internal bias when you conduct market research. You might not even realize your biases, which is even more of a problem if your company consistently takes action according to data results without any knowledge there may be some fault or misleading elements underfoot. The problem lies with trying to correct a problem, or eliminate it completely if you aren’t even aware of its existence. In the case of researcher bias, a proactive way is to understand the types of bias and implement strategies that will eliminate them.

    Celebrity Hire

    A decade ago, the very idea of being able to hire a celebrity would have been deemed laughable. For so long, Hollywood A-Lister's, iconic musicians, and legendary sportspeople have lived and worked in their own "celebrity bubble." Loyal fans would wait in their masses to catch a brief glance of their idol. Queuing for hours on end, whatever the weather for a quick sighting of their own personal demagogue. All a bit ridiculous if you ask me, but whatever floats your boat.

    Millennials and the Sharing Economy

    Millennials and the Sharing Economy

    Sharing your life with strangers is an important part of building the economy. The sharing economy involves freelance work often facilitated by a larger company that can choose who works for them, and sometimes supervises transactions between customers and workers. Companies such as Uber, Lyft, and Airbnb, which encourage the social economy, have become very popular recently. With the rise of the internet, and advancements in app development, the ability to do freelance work is at an all-time high. The sharing economy comes more naturally to younger generations, because of the fact that they have grown up always having the internet. It is also a point in time for generations, typically Millennials, and the earlier members of Generation Z, that they may not be completely settled into the job they ideally want, and they probably do not have complete financial stability, so being able to easily make money while working another job, or studying in college is appealing to them. When thinking about anything, you should always consider both the benefits, and the detriments, especially when it comes to the economy. The most prominent argument people have against the sharing economy is that it is taking us away from more traditional businesses, however, there is always going to be a demand for both. I strongly believe that the sharing economy is improving the economy as a whole.

    Why Are You Ranking: Best Defunct Websites That Paid for Content Listed from Cash Poor to Internet Wealthy

    For over a decade now, the web has revolutionized lives for the good of individuals. Now, you can order pizza, a ride, transfer money, conduct video conferences with friends, and much more, all with a few swipes of a finger on a smartphone or other device. But what has not been spoken of or written about as much are the sites that paid for content. User or contributor or partner generated content has been the little secret that no one discusses about the internet. It is a conundrum wrapped in a riddled sprinkled with mystery to most folks. While gaming apps reap in billions of dollars for their makers, the sites that pay (or paid) for material have been relegated to the corner of the digital space. Names that when you speak of them to the layperson, usually draw faces of confusion or even wonder. Few news outlets have spoken of these now deceased sites and the people who possessed the opportunity to spread the message of the goodness of these sites didn’t have too much time as they changed business models, saw absorption into other companies, or found themselves rendered obsolete altogether. But the men and women who saw something curious in the universe said: this internet thing is a huge bank for the yacht-sized companies that have docked here. Why can’t people with a passion for writing or video be compensated for their efforts in these speedboats?

    The Top Reasons to Hire a Marked Mobile Patrolling Security Service

    In today’s society of advanced security options, technology is ever improving and providing superior security options for any situation. With the increased presence of CCTV cameras, alarms systems, and other security equipment, it is much easier to secure a location, home, or business than it was in years past. Even when security guards are utilized, security equipment can offer double protection, assisting guards and helping them to better secure any area. Not to mention, if a crime does occur, camera footage provides evidence of the crime, as well as proof of who committed the crime. Despite this, it sometimes takes more than just cameras to keep large campuses secure, such as schools, colleges, and public arenas. Such places can greatly benefit from the added security of marked mobile patrolling vehicles. This additional security helps secure the entirety of a large area, preventing and stopping criminal acts.

    Chapter/Episode ONE of ENOCH—The Movie—A Work In Progress—from ENOCH the Metaphysical Novel by David Alexanders English (C2018) The inspiration for this work has always been the incredible story of Enoch. There has been so much mystique and misunderstanding around this character down through the years. It is a wonder and a testament that this singular figure holds such a revered and curious place in the fascination of so many thinking people of all cultural traditions to this day, regardless of whatever belief system to which one subscribes. The goal was to humanize this character; by positing the notion: what if he really existed; then envisioning, fleshing out how might his story have actually occurred.

    Pyramid Schemes Are Alive and Well

    Pyramid Schemes Are Alive and Well

    You may have heard of pyramid schemes in the past. This a business model where one person or organization would recruit people to sell something. In turn, these newly recruited people will act as their own business and continue to recruit others, just as the original person had recruited them did. The cycle continues so that each underling continues to recruit more people to sell a product or service. Obviously there is potential for building a large organization using this tactic.
