Trust Your GutAll of my divorced friends wished they had followed this advice. If the job seems amazing but something doesn’t feel right, don’t accept the offer without learning more. Ask to speak with other staff members or even former employees. Ask around about the organization – you’ll be surprised what people tell you when you ask them for the truth. Better to Overdress Than UnderdressIf you’re unsure about the office attire, ask before you interview how you should dress. But when in doubt, overdress. Wearing a suit in a business casual environment never hurt anybody’s chances, but wearing jeans in a formal business attire setting has left a lot of folks spending more quality time with the Classifieds. It’s Not All About YouToo many candidates make the mistake of talking too much about themselves during the interview and failing to listen or ask questions. The more information you can glean from the interviewer(s), the better informed you will be about whether this is a job you truly want. Be YourselfNot only is this good dating advice, it’s also great interview advice. No matter how badly you think you want the job, remember to just be you. If you try to force it, you may end up with a job you aren’t a fit for, or worse, you may miss out on a great job for which you would have been perfect. Do Your HomeworkBefore you interview, thoroughly research the organization and the staff with whom you will be meeting. Know about the role you are interviewing for, and have questions prepared. And it never hurts to throw in some questions for the hiring manager that might just strike a good nerve: “Claire, I understand you went to Notre Dame. I love the Fightin’ Irish! Do you ever make it back for football games?” No Soliloquies, PleaseAs a general rule, keep your responses to the interviewer’s question brief – one to two minutes max. If they want more detail, they can always ask. If you ramble on to the point you have to stop and ask, “I’m sorry, what was the question again?” you have probably said too much. Don’t Pretend to Walk on WaterDuring the interview, you are bound to be asked about your weaknesses. Please, for the love of Pete, do not give a hollow answer such as “I work too hard.” Not only with the interviewer see right through you, she might also be concerned you are hiding a big, ugly weakness. Be ready to talk openly about a legitimate flaw you have and how you are working to improve in that area. Demonstrate Your PassionYou’re not interviewing for a job in a widget factory – you’re interviewing for a job in the free-market nonprofit sector. The interviewer wants to know why affecting social change is important to you, so be ready to tell him a little bit about your passion. Do You Want to Work at Innotech?Sure you want a job, but are you sure you want this job? Pay attention to the office environment and the types of people who work there, and ask plenty of questions about what it’s like. Soon after the joy of receiving a paycheck fades, you’ll be stuck writing TPS reports, so make sure it’s a good fit for you. Be Nice To Anyone You Meet in the Powder RoomInevitably, you’ll visit the powder room beforehand and run into someone. That someone may be the person you are about to interview with, so be on your best behavior. I once complimented a woman on her shoes, and she turned out to be the hiring manager’s right-hand-gal. I got the job. via GIPHY
Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts chris cameron A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… First it was the heated angels vs. venture capitalists debate, and then the infamous “angelgate” Bin 38 meeting. These and other happenings are still the talk of the startup investment scene, and at the epicenter – a notorious gang of in-betweeners known as “super angels.” Whether you agree with this nomenclature or prefer to call them “micro VCs,” as an entrepreneur or young startup, it’s important to understand these key players in the investment market. ChubbyBrain, a group of “data geeks” focused on helping entrepreneurs, has put together a handy list breaking down everything you need to know about the super angels.In case you’re confused about what exactly a super angel or micro VC is, it’s basically any angel investor who has become so popular and skilled at their craft as to warrant raising an outside fund themselves. They sit between traditional angels who invest their own cash and full-blown VC firms that employ partners and invest copious amounts of other people’s money. So who are the super angels? That’s where ChubbyBrain’s directory comes in handy. Thursday, the self-proclaimed data geeks compiled a list of 14 super angel funds, complete with loads of information for each. Curious about the average size of Dave McClure’s 500 Startups investments? That’s in the directory. Want to know about the types of companies Howard Lindzon’s Social Leverage funds? That’s there too.Other valuable information include the size of each fund, the geography of the investments made and the number of investments made by each super angel. For startups, approaching investors is all about developing a personal relationship and getting to know their habits and needs. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s a lot like dating, and in that case, ChubbyBrain’s directory is the startup investment personals section.

Kane Williamson hit a century and Luke Ronchi smashed 24 runs off one explosive over when the match was still in the balance to steer New Zealand to a four-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the fourth one-day international in Nelson on Tuesday.Sri Lanka set New Zealand a testing victory target of 277 to win the match at Saxton Oval after being bowled out for 276 in 49.3 overs and the Black Caps reached the mark with 11 balls to spare for the loss of six wickets.Williamson continued his rich run of form with the bat, scoring 103 off 107 deliveries to provide the backbone of New Zealand’s innings. He was well supported by Corey Anderson, who made a quickfire 47 before being run out in the 46th over with the home team still needing 32 for victory.New Zealand required 25 off the last 18 balls when Ronchi tied the scores in the blink of an eye, blasting three sixes, a boundary and a two off the 48th over from Thisara Perera.Daniel Vettori spanked a boundary off the first ball of the next over to end the match, leaving Ronchi unbeaten on 32 from 15 balls.”Really good effort from the bowlers to give us a score under par,” New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum said at the post-match presentation.”Kane showed how experienced he is and how he can formulate a game plan. Also finished off well by Corey and Ronchi.”Sri Lanka’s big three batsmen all made significant contributions to their total but the tourists did not get enough runs from the rest of their lineup on a good batting wicket. Mahela Jayawardene fell just six runs shy of a century and Kumar Sangakkara made a swift 76 after Tillikaratne Dilshan gave the Sri Lankans a solid platform with 44.advertisement”After the start we got, I thought the lower order batted poorly,” Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews said.”I thought Dilshan, Sangakkara and Mahela batted beautifully. It was a very good wicket, didn’t turn as much or slow up, but it was a good batting track.”Fast bowler Adam Milne was the pick of New Zealand’s attack with 2 for 28 from seven overs, while opening bowler Tim Southee was expensive but finished with 3 for 59.New Zealand lead the best-of-seven series 2-1 after they shared the first two games and the third match in Auckland on Saturday was rained out.

Members of the OSU men’s soccer team huddle during a game against Rutgers on Oct. 25 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU won, 4-1.Credit: Taylor Cameron / Lantern photographerWith only one regular season game remaining for the Ohio State men’s soccer team, its standing in the Big Ten race is still unclear.“We could end up being all over the place, we could end anywhere,” OSU coach John Bluem said.The Buckeyes (7-6-4, 4-3-0) currently sit in a tie for third in the conference standings, however, OSU can finish anywhere from a share of first place to a tie for sixth, depending on the results of multiple games across the Big Ten.“I guess it does feel different,” junior defender Liam Doyle said. “There’s a lot at stake, not only in the Big Ten but looking forward to the NCAA Tournament.”In order to receive a share of the regular season Big Ten title, the Buckeyes would need a win Wednesday coupled with a loss or draw by Maryland at Rutgers.However, Bluem said “in his heart” he believes Maryland will likely win on Wednesday in New Brunswick, N.J., to receive the outright Big Ten title.Despite the possibilities hanging on other games, Doyle said his only concern falls with his team defeating Michigan (6-7-3, 3-2-2) and letting the pieces fall where they may.“We have a game to focus on and where we’ll be, we’ll see at the end of the game, I guess,” he said.Bluem said he had a chance to watch the Wolverines’ 3-2 victory Sunday against Michigan State with the team on the bus ride home from College Park, Md., and was impressed with what he saw.“They’re very good going forward, very spirited team, great athleticism,” Bluem said. “They’re young, so maybe that’s something that plays to our advantage a little bit. I just think they’re a pretty good team who happens to be in really good form.”If the ramifications of OSU’s postseason play were not enough, redshirt-senior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov said playing rival Michigan gives the Buckeyes even more motivation to come out strong on Wednesday.“There’s always that rivalry with Michigan,” Ivanov said. “All of us know about that big football rivalry, but I think all the times we’ve played them in soccer it’s been close until the end, so I think there’s also a rivalry there. We don’t like that state up north.”Ivanov is coming off a week in which he won his fourth career Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week award. The native of Strongsville, Ohio, stopped nine shots in OSU’s two games last week, though the team did not win a game in that span.“It was an honor to be recognized by the conference,” Ivanov said. “Unfortunately, we didn’t get the results, but I always try to do as much as I can to keep us in the games, but we just couldn’t find the back of the net.”The award was the third weekly Big Ten honor for an OSU player this season. Junior forward Joao Ehlers and sophomore forward Danny Jensen previously were awarded Offensive Player of the Week honors.In order for the Buckeyes to host its quarterfinal matchup at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium on Sunday, they need to finish in the top four of the conference. Beating Michigan would clinch that standing, while a draw would have to be paired with another draw in the game between Indiana and Michigan State. In that scenario, OSU would receive the fourth seed in the conference.“Home-field advantage would be massive,” Doyle said. “We’ve been very good at home, especially in the Big Ten, but we’ve traveled a lot lately, as well, and it would be nice to relax in our own place before the game.”OSU is 4-2-3 at home this season, including a 3-1-0 mark against conference opponents.OSU’s is set to conclude its regular season Wednesday in Ann Arbor, Mich. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
Last season’s runaway champions Manchester City look set to retain their crown ahead of the start of the campaign on Friday with Liverpool and Manchester United completing the top threeAfter nearly three months of waiting, the Premier League returns to action today with Manchester United hosting Leicester City at Old Trafford for the first game of the new season.Jose Mourinho’s side are hoping to go one up in the upcoming campaign and win a first league crown since 2013 but with their pre-season preparations having been compromised, and a lack of success on the transfer front, the task of ending City’s dominance will likely fall to Liverpool.But even though Jurgen Klopp’s side have done impressive work in the transfer market this summer, Bet365 doubts that they will be able to overhaul Pep Guardiola’s mighty City squad.Below are the odds for the top six finishers in the 2018/19 Premier LeagueManchester City – 4/6The Citizens stormed to the league crown last season by breaking nine records and becoming the first team in English football history to break the 100-point mark, as well as finishing an incredible 19 points ahead of their nearest rivals.Thanks to the arrival of the 2016 PFA Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez, a Aymeric Laporte with a full pre-season now behind him and a fully-fit Benjamin Mendy, City are looking more dangerous than ever heading into the new season and are looking good to become the first team since Manchester United in 2009 to retain the league title.Liverpool – 4/1The Reds are out for their first Premier League title since 1990 and will be bolstered by the arrivals of Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker.Improving a squad that reached the final of last season’s Champions League is no mean feat, but Jurgen Klopp has done well in strengthening some key areas and has enjoyed a relatively smooth pre-season.But after spending over £250m this year alone, the pressure is now on for Klopp to deliver big at Liverpool after coming so close before in his two-and-a-half years in charge at Anfield.Manchester United – 7/1It’s probably been at least one of the worst summers in Jose Mourinho’s managerial career with the Portuguese coach often bemoaning his lack of key players due to the World Cup in pre-season and criticising the club board over their failure to adequately support him in his pursuit of new transfer targets.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding ar Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…Manchester United have not won the Premier League since 2013 and things look like that wait will go on for at least another year.Chelsea – 12/1After months of uncertainty, Chelsea finally announced they had dropped Antonio Conte in favour of Maurizio Sarri after finishing outside the top four last season.While he has had very little time to prepare, Sarri has already begun implementing his very different ideas in place at Stamford Bridge.Although the loss of Thibaut Courtois will likely hit them hard, Chelsea looks like they are a side capable of challenging for a return to the top four spots in the Premier League this season and, crucially, return to the Champions League thanks to goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga’s world record arrival from Athletic Bilbao.Tottenham – 16/1Will the opening of their Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September be the trigger needed to help Spurs end their 10-year wait for silverware?Unlikely with the Lilywhites having not made a single summer signing at all.Due to this Mauricio Pochettino will likely turn to the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli to help salvage the club’s season.But the lack of reinforcements could have a telling effect later on in the season with Spurs’ proud run of three successive top-three finishes in the Premier League now in serious danger.Arsenal – 20/1Although new boss Unai Emery has brought in some interesting players this summer in Stephan Lichtsteiner and Lucas Torreira, the Gunners are unlikely to be a real threat in their first campaign in the post-Arsene Wenger era.Much like Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, Emery will likely need at least a full season of English football behind him before he can build a side worthy of being considered serious challengers.
Real Madrid full-back Marcelo has acknowledged he ‘misses’ Cristiano Ronaldo, stating that Ronaldo is still ‘the best player in the world’, and adding that he is ‘very happy’ for Keylor Navas.“I was surprised by the change, but I respect the Coach’s decision,” he stated after Sunday’s 4-1 win at Girona, which saw him replaced by Raphael Varane on the hour mark, as quoted in Football Italia.“I wanted to keep playing because I felt good, at 100 percent, but we’re on the right track and I’m sure we’ll improve with each game. We had a good game and took the three points.Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“Cristiano is the best player in the world and of course he’s missed, but Bale and Benzema are also very good.“We have two very good goalkeepers, but I’m very happy for Keylor. He’s doing very well.”
Newbie manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, opened up about how much of an impact Sir Alex Ferguson has on his career at Manchester United.We still don’t know if the Manchester United board of directors will end up keeping Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the manager’s seat, but the influence from Sir Alex Ferguson is more evident by the minute and even the Norwegian doesn’t shy away from any type of comparison.The Red Devils completely changed their tune since the caretaker manager arrived in the club to take over Jose Mourinho’s spot, the credit is not only his but also Michael Carrick’s and Kieran McKenna’s.Both assistant managers were already in the squad when Mourinho coached the squad, but they didn’t really have a major influence over the players as they do today.Even the warm-up has gone back to the old days when Ferguson coached the team, the Scotsman had a level of control over many aspects of the team that no other manager in football history has been able to accomplish.Solskjaer has been able to understand that in order to do all the work that Ferguson did back in the day, he has to rely on teamwork with the other two assistant managers and things seem to be working so far.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has downplayed Sir Alex Ferguson’s role in Manchester United’s revival since his appointment as caretaker boss.Full story: https://t.co/iiljfWukHB pic.twitter.com/TIXda4iKFX— Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) January 21, 2019Regardless of how well the squad is doing everything at the moment, the Norwegian manager confessed that he still doesn’t feel ready to take on the whole operation and he has remained in contact with Sir Alex for advice on how to work better with the players.It is almost as if the Scotsman was back to work, as if he was still controlling everything from the comfort of his own home.Solskjaer denies that they talk regularly, but he does agree that there is a major influence where he draws his energy from.“We don’t speak weekly. I haven’t spoken to him many times,” said Ole via The Express.“He has been in to visit us just once – he has been to see [former player, Giuseppe] Rossi once.”“The influence is more my 15 years under him. He is 77, it is not fair to him either is it?”“Part of the history of the club is that you get setbacks. It was not just glory days with Sir Alex either.”Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“That is just the way we are, that we bounce back and hopefully we move up the table. That is key to us now.”“The past three managers have passed on so much knowledge that the players know they will have it in the locker because every day is an experience,” he added.How Sir Alex Ferguson has emerged from the shadows after arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer | @Jack_Gaughan https://t.co/JDYynhnetf pic.twitter.com/XUuVHOa8Yk— MailOnline Sport (@MailSport) January 18, 2019With Manchester United’s latest victory over Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reached an impressive 7 consecutive victories in all competitions since he took command of the squad.The Norwegian manager set a record that no other newbie Premier League manager has been able to accomplish, but this record might stay there because the next match will be extremely difficult for the Red Devils.We have the FA Cup weekend approaching, Arsenal will get a visit from Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium and these 7 consecutive wins could finally stay there if the Gunners get to defeat Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.Even if things seem to be going fine for the Red Devils, Ole doesn’t want to get that overconfident feeling because he knows that being defeated is something that will eventually happen.Actually, the faster his squad gets a loss, the less pressure he will have for the rest of the season.Ferguson will be watching diligently from the sidelines as he’s been doing for the past few years since he retired.The only difference is that now, the Scotsman feels more involved because the ones in charge are his direct disciples.Inside Solskjaer’s perfect first month at Man United: How he brought Ferguson’s ways back to Old Trafford. Great read! https://t.co/Md71B7MVSg 🇾🇪 #mufc— United Xtra (@utdxtra) January 18, 2019What aspects of Manchester United’s game are more similar to the Sir Alex Ferguson era?
