Are you using the latest Microsoft Office 2013 technology?

 

That's why I like being a Microsoft partner. I get to use the latest technology. I just downloaded Microsoft Office 2013. We're using Office 365. We upgraded our website and SharePoint collections to SharePoint 2013. It's a different look and feel. You get new features. When you're looking for a job, it's nice to be able to say you're using the latest technology. People want to hire people who are into technology, folks with the latest software, folks with the latest phones. Birds of a feather flock together.

 How to Beat The Stress Interview






Stress interviews are still in common use. One type of stress interview is where the employer uses a succession of interviewers (one at a time or en masse) whose mission is to intimidate the candidate and keep him/her off-balance. The ostensible purpose of this interview: to find out how the candidate handles stress. Stress interviews might involve testing an applicant's behavior in a busy environment. Questions about handling work overload, dealing with multiple projects, and handling conflict are typical.

Learn to beat the stress interview. Come join the Blacks Gone Geek Job Search Work Team.

Sears’ Milt Haynes oversees knowledge management

This former national BDPA president graduated with U.S. President Barack Obama. Now he’s a knowledge manager at Sears, and runs a global group for blacks in technology

'I graduated from Columbia University in 1983, the same year and in the same class as President Obama,” notes Milt Haynes, “but he took a slightly different path than me.”

Haynes is a knowledge manager at Sears Holdings Corporation (Hoffman Estates, IL), where he ensures that IT knowledge, intellectual capital and experience are shared throughout the organization.

“My interest in computers started when I was a kid in Chicago, with Star Trek,” he says. “Mr Spock always seemed to have a logical solution to any problem. That made me think that if I had a computer, I could do that too.


Special thanks to the folks at Diversity Careers Magazine for this article. I've known them for years and highly recommend this best in class magazine and website for keeping up with the latest industry news, careers guides and job postings. 

Keep on keepin' on!

Milt Haynes
