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…

5 Virtual Reality Jobs that Pay the Most

5 Virtual Reality Jobs that Pay the Most

The Virtual Reality job market is about to explode.  With the recent introduction of the Oculus Rift and Microsoft Hololens two of the largest companies in the world have begun to stake their claims in the newest high growth market. Technology generally directs how we live our lives in modern times. Microwave ovens changed how we eat, cable television changed how we spend much of our free time and consume news, and smartphones have changed how we communicate and, frankly, how we do almost everything. This trend will continue to accelerate as we become more and more technologically advanced in the world, and the frontier which is set to provide the next huge evolution in civilization is undoubtedly virtual reality. Virtual reality can be simply defined as ‘near reality’ or ‘almost reality’, an emulation of reality based in technological constructs. We think of reality as being made up of what our senses can detect, but in truth there are more than just the five senses we normally think of. For instance, we have a sense of balance. This ‘sense’ can’t be squarely placed under the heading of sight, touch, sound, smell, or taste. This somewhat vague idea of our senses can be…

E-Payments in Cars with “Selfies” Facial Recognition and Fingerprints, Oh Boy!

E-Payments in Cars with Selfies and fingerprints, Oh Boy!

The sad truth is we currently live in a world where everyone wants to get paid, and fast; so Freshbooks, Visa and Mastercard are working towards making E-payments occur as fast as humanly possible.  So how are all these quick transactions of currency going to happen?  Let’s first take a look at what Freshbooks is up to.  Founded in Toronto back in 2003 as a cloud based accountancy software, they’ve moved into the credit card reader business to accept cards through a smartphone.  They announced it back in December and have tested it with invite only customers for a limited time.  Their $29 reader is a direct competitor for Jack Dorsey’s Square which went public 3 months ago. The reader unit that plugs directly into an iPhone’s audio jack and is designed to help freelancers and small-business owners go “cash-free” by accepting most common bank payment cards.  However, the card reader integrates with FreshBooks broader software offering, meaning that merchants’ invoices and financial reports will be synced in real time when each payment is processed.  In addition to the $29, merchants will be charged 2.7 percent + $0.30 for each Visa and MasterCard transaction, and 3.4 percent + $0.30 for American…

Diffbot – Machine learning is the new Big Data and Giving it away might be a Money Maker.

Machine learning is the new Big Data and Giving it away might be a Money Maker.

“Everything’s becoming intelligent, but the limiting factor of intelligence is access to structured data,” Tung says. Diffbot, an artificial intelligence company that helps clients extract and combine data from multiple Web sources wants to scrape all the data on the web (all of it) to put it into a structured format. Making it useful for all sorts of business purposes and make money doing so.  The company says its technology “uses computer vision and NLP algorithms to extract and structure any web page into the world’s largest structured database… with no human curation or oversight.” Founded in 2009 The Palo Alto, CA-based startup announced today it raised $10 million from investors to expand its “knowledge-as-a-service” offerings to businesses and consumer apps.  They have raised close to $13 million since its seed round in 2012.  Diffbot’s plan is to catalog trillions of facts across the Web—many of them drawn from page elements such as comment forums, which can’t be mined by traditional search engines. Web-mining can be a competitive advantage for apps as well as the proliferating devices of the Internet of Things, Tung says. The startup says it has made a significant start on that goal, having indexed 1.2 billion…

Will Robo-Advisors become the New Financial Adviser?

Will Robo-Advisors Become my Financial Adviser

Today’s Financial Adviser is becoming today’s Robo-Advisor. The ranks of today’s Financial Advisers will most likely be significantly reduced in the next 5 to 10 years and possibly much sooner.  Instead of visiting with your local adviser you will be managing your money using your desktop, laptop or mobile phone. Over 1 million B2B sales jobs will lose their jobs to self-service e commerce by 2020 according to Forrester Research, a reduction of 20% of the current workforce. Similar changes are already coming to the number of US financial advisors whose numbers fell for the fifth straight year to 285,000.  The industry has lost more than 39,000 advisers, about 12%, since its peak in 2008 according to the Boston based research group Cerulli Associates.  Nearly half of the current financial advisers are over the age of 55 and Cerulli expects about 100,000 of today’s FA’s will retire in the next 10 years. The growth in the financial services industry is coming from the Wealth Management sector where most earn fixed annual fees based on total assets managed.  However most wealth managers want clients with at least $500,000 or more to invest and these minimums are increasing.  JP Morgan/Chase’s Wealth Management…
