Watch Out!  Social Networking can Cost Your Iob

  

As many people indulge in social networking activities, they might have lost the sight of the risk of losing their existing job or a potential one.   When used inappropriately, social networking sites can cost you your job.

Communication is an art, not easily mastered.  No two people are molded the same.  We all come from different background, armed with different experience, share different value and beliefs and perceive the world differently.  Often, we think like the frogs from the well, trapped inside the box of our own.  We each carry our own set of filters through which we see the world.  This is where misinterpretation and misunderstanding arise.  While it is impossible to reverse our perception, try to control your temptation to be presumptuous.

 

There was an interesting episode in our household on how we perceive things.  When my daughter was in the restroom last night, she told us that there was the sound of ghost.  We were puzzled by that.  Then she said “Boo”.  I still couldn’t understand it.  Do you know what she meant?  To see the answer, please move your mouse to the white space next to this sentence.  “Poo” sounds like “Boo”, which is the sound of the ghost.  Now you know what my daughter was doing inside the bathroom.  Another example is the poem I wrote about the leprechaun house.  http://elisaenglish.pixnet.net/blog/post/4743928

A couple of days ago, our company issued a social media policy.  In that it stated, the easiest ways to remain in compliance when using social media sites are: (1) not to identify the company as your employer, (2) not to use social media to do business or communicate about work, and (3) not to provide any information about the company or its brands.  In addition, to help avoid regulatory issues, consider qualifying opinions with appropriate disclaimers such as: The views expressed are mine only and do not represent the views of my employer or anyone else”. 

 

My company is a public company in a high-profile industry regulated by the SEC and FINRA.  I know that I have not discussed any work-related topics.  Wouldn't you hate to talk about work outside of work, since we've all spent too much time working already?

I cannot help but post this news here since I am a graduate from Washington University in St. Louis, aka, Wash U.  I take great pride as an alumnus, so you can imagine how glad I am to hear this news.  I have only good things to say about Wash U.  I met my husband there too.  I like my school and would highly recommend my school to anyone who is interested in its MBA program. 

 

Its social work program ranks number 1 in the states.  See http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-social-work-schools/rankings

I decided to write a sample cover letter since someone was asking for my advice. 

 

This is a sample cover letter for the position of a teaching assistant for the school age kids.

How to write an effective resume?

Your resume has to sell you in short order.  It needs to stand out quickly among the hundreds of resumes your potential employers would be reviewing.  An effective resume focuses clearly on a specific job title and addresses the employer’s stated requirements for the position.
