Want to work for Google or AirBNB? Move to Cuba

Want to work for Google or AirBNB? Move to Cuba

With most of the world explored and exploited Cuba may yet be a new uncharted frontier for media and tech careerists. Cuba may yet be the greatest opportunity for this millennium so far with digital expansion one of the priorities. Seems like everyone wants to get “into the act” including the Rolling Stones offering a free concert (pushed back for 5 days due to the President’s visit). Cuba Broadband Internet Access is Top Priority In one of Obama’s first speeches after his arrival he emphasized the importance of broadband when he stated that “expanding Internet access for Cubans is key to changing the country”. But the rush is on…Google has announced that it will be providing WiFi and Broadband access in Cuba, Western Union is expanding operations and AirBNB has announced that it will be opening up all its Cuba listings on April 2nd. According to the Associated Press, Google’s Chief Internet Evangelist, Vin Cerf, spent more than an hour talking to an audience of Communications Ministry officials and recent computer science graduates at the 2016 International Computer Science Fair, a government-run symposium on information technology and communications. If there was ever an opportunity to get in on the “ground floor” this…

The Ed Tech Company Worth over $1 Billion Dollars

ed tech company the learning company

Can anyone make money selling ed tech?  One company thinks so and could be valued at over $1 billion dollars. It all starts with the ABC’s with the mega kids app called ABCmouse. The holy grail for jobs at app companies or other tech jobs or media jobs isn’t to land a job at Google, or Microsoft, or Apple. It’s landing a job at the next Google or Microsoft or Apple before they get there. To find that company, you want to look at any nexus between a current or coming societal change and technological advances. One of the markets where this is currently happening is educational technology. The Ed Tech Opportunity Ed tech is fast approaching a $10 billion market, and educational reform is a huge issue in our culture, so opportunities should be abundant. But while there have been some great products and ideas developed, the next mega-company hasn’t yet emerged. At least not in the public eye. Enter ABCmouse, a learning app for children between ages 2 and 7 (currently, 2-8 soon) made by educational start up The Age of Learning, based in Glendale, CA. As far as educational start ups or ed tech go, you could say they’re starting to get…

Customizable Digital Advertising Displays that look Great on your Feet.

Customizable Digital Advertising displays that look great on your feet.

So have you read MediaJobs most recent article from Roy Weissman about skipping on trying to make money on the ads and just going straight to selling products?  What would you say if the product being sold WAS the digital advertising outlet? Lately we’ve been going in-depth on the wearable technology front like the LED fabrics we covered and most of us have already become aware of the strides that have been made with flexible electronics, so check this out. Presently a company called ShiftWear is working hard seeking funding for their miraculous product on Indiegogo. The product being promoted is a prototype pair of shoes that have screens incorporated into them. The screens are made from flexible E-Ink color displays, a type of super-thin digital screen that mimics the appearance of paper. Digital shoes, well, what are the implications for advertisers? On the screens you can display two types of images, static or moving, and the image presented can be customized and selected by Bluetooth communication (jobs for Bluetooth communication) via a smartphone app or tablet. You could even display photographs. The idea is to let users browse, download, and program designs for the shoes. Art can be created…

What should A.I. Developers and Marketers know about the Autonomous Car revolution

What should A.I. Developers and Marketers know about the Autonomous Car revolution

Your automobile will soon be the ultimate media immersion tool, watch Netflix (jobs at Netflix), YouTube, Play VR baseball against your friend in another autonomous car. Yeah so what if that was supposed to be Science Fiction stuff, it is here now, accept it! Could you imagine planning an even longer commute to get more work done while in your car away from the husband and kids. Jason Harrison, global CEO of Gain Theory says “Cars are essentially becoming the next must-have mobile device.” PricewaterhouseCoopers projects that spending in the autonomous-car industry will balloon to $43.2 billion globally by 2021. Electric Car manufacturer Tesla (jobs at Tesla) is adding 1,600 employees to fast-track its autonomous driving efforts. Ford just made a deal with Google to collaborate on the automaker’s autonomous ambitions. General Motors revealed it is investing $500 million in the car-service app Lyft in order to beat its competitors to the self-driving future. Mercedes-Benz joined with connected-home player Nest to create ETA, a tool that enables a car approaching one’s house to send a signal to adjust the thermostat ahead of time. “Rather than opening up an owner’s manual that’s 500-600 pages long, you watch a little bit of the video, put…

5 Tips for Landing a Social Media Job

5 Tips for Landing a Social Media Job

So you’re looking for a social media job, but you aren’t sure what kind of qualifications you might need or what the pay is like? Don’t feel too bad, even many of the companies hiring a social media manager can’t answer those questions objectively. The truth is that the field is still so new, and still growing and evolving at such a rapid pace, that there really isn’t much objectivity to go by. That being said, there are some rock-solid tactics you can use to try and land that dream job in social media, and some general guidelines for what you can expect to be paid in such a position. Before we get into the tactics, let’s take a quick look at the pay scale. Part of the problem with setting a salary range is that the size of the company plays a big part. Larger companies tend to pay more, obviously. The other problem is that you may find listings for five different titles, but each one has the exact same requirements. Social media manager, social media coordinator, social media strategist, and so on. There are no definite titles and descriptions established, so it’s a matter of the company’s preference…
