We had a guest lecturer in a class last week. He talked about his success with Social Media and how he has not had to adverise or go out and find work for the last decade. Some of the projects that he has worked on as a result has gotten him world records in human powered vehicles, or other design projects. He is just an engineering technologist, so it goes to show that once again it is who you know rather than the specific piece of paper on the wall. When you google his name the first 4 pages of hits are all about him and his accomplishments. He no longer needs a resume, he just directs them to google him.
From another guest lecturer that we had who has done a lot of hiring of engineers over his 37 year career stated that it although your degree might be important for your first job or first couple of years in your career that after a while, job postings would also include "or relevant experience" clause.
This has caused me to think about some of the efforts that members of the Church are doing in helping create and maintain a positve profile for the church. It has been a while since I have written anything on here, so I will endeavour to write more frequently on here as well as I might start another blog on my projects that I build. It will be an interesting journey as I continue with my experiment with Social Media. Isn't this what the law of consecration really leads to, the free flowing of information between people?
