“A Teen’s Guide to Cyber Security”

Hacker Girl

I get some great suggestions from friends and readers. This week I’ve been looking at a genuinely interesting compilation of material for teens and their parents.

One of my biggest interests is studying – and learning techniques for securing – the way teens behave online. There’s some articulate discussion and well-chosen materials for teens and parents: highly recommended.

Tech in the Workplace

Smaller screens

This guest article is brought to you by Leonardo Calvo / NEUVOO

Smaller screensNowadays, technology is such a big part of our lives that we do not even notice how much we rely on it. Technology affects us and helps us almost every minute of every day. From the minute our alarm wakes us up to the moment we read our favorite book on our tablet before going to sleep. No one can escape the barricade of innovation and the way it has affected how we live our lives. We are currently positioned in the threshold of gadgets, Internet and Artificial Intelligence.

The last generation was used to spending their days stuck in a cubicle without almost no social interaction, obligated to commute every day from home to the office. However, due to this new digital era, both the conception of workplace and how we develop our careers have changed drastically, at least for the vast majority.

People working from home is a trend that is rising, thanks to the Internet and new startup initiatives that are taking advantage of new and very productive working protocols that adapt into people’s comfort and the company’s needs, which is a rather beneficial agreement for both employer and employee. But if you are one of those people who does not like working for an employer, the Internet has provided us with global online outsourcing marketplaces like Fiverr where people can offer their freelance services, depending on their skills and field of study.

Comedians, musicians, filmmakers, bloggers and artists have found different ways to earn good money through platforms such as Youtube or Vimeo, which have demonstrated that working in these new networks is entirely profitable, especially when a top ranking Youtuber makes around 3.2 million dollars annually.

Desk, Table, Laptop, Notebook, Coffee, Business, OfficeWhat if you do not have a job? That could also be easily solved by technology these days. Job search engines like neuvoo index jobs from different sources and companies; it filters all offers through their system and classifies them by location and industry. So yes, those days of browsing through the newspaper employment classifieds are entirely over, being that the Internet is a much more practical source for a job search.

Has technology changed or influenced the way you work? I am sure it has, in one way or another, the future is now and it is taking over. Eventually, Artificial Intelligence might start taking our place in different entry level jobs, let’s hope it is a very far away possibility and let’s focus on taking advantage of it while we can. Hopefully, technology will always have a positive influence on our society.

We have seen the word a million times in articles, magazines, blogs, even Facebook, but it is very likely we do not have the slightest idea of what “Networking” actually means. We might relate it directly to Facebook and we definitely know it is an important tool when it comes to doing business. But, do we know its actual objective? Networking can be defined as the exchange of information or services among individuals, groups, or institutions, and it specifically refers to the cultivation of productive relationships for employment or business. Now that we finally know what it means, how do we get it done? Should we just go to parties, meetings, benefits and events, talk to people about our company or business, exchange business cards and be sociable? Yes, that is exactly what a networker does. The main idea is to make new contacts with the objective of forming mutually beneficial business relationships. That is it! Now you are an expert on the subject.Linked, Connected, Network, Team, Teamwork, Black, MenThere is another aspect we have to consider, why go ahead and do business networking? Some entrepreneurs and business owners actually think business networking is a more cost-effective method of getting new clients than advertising or public relations. Business networking can be conducted in a local business community, or on a larger scale on the Internet. Social networks play a very important role for companies nowadays. Even law firms and oil companies have Facebook and Twitter in order to attract more clients and be able to get the word out there about what they do. Social networks make companies more approachable to the general public and potential future clients. That is the reason why the position of Community Manager has boomed over the last five years. If it is not on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn, your company literally does not exist.To be the greatest networker known to man, just follow these simple, yet life changing, tips:

  •    Always be honest. No one likes a liar.
  •   Carry your business cards with you at all times.
  •   Try to meet at least five or more new people at an event.
  •   Be friendly.
  •   You will need to give to be able to receive. The business relationship works both ways.
  •   Go get them!
