Apple creating ad agency, to hire 1,000 employees: Report

Apple is reportedly unhappy with its long-time advertising agency TBWA/Media Arts Lab and will be creating an internal agency to handle its advertising work. The iPhone maker is trying to hire top talent from the advertising world and focussing more on digital ads, according a report by AdAge.

This step towards taking marketing and advertising in its own hands has reportedly come as a fallout of arch rivals Samsung and Google having gained more mindshare with better and more impactful ads.

Nowadays, Apple often pits ideas by its internal teams against the ones by TBWA/MAL, with the former winning more than the latter. Apple is even inviting other ad agencies to bid for projects, a scenario that was unimaginable under founder and CEO Steve Jobs....Read More

Budget 2014: Five changes to boost the employment in India

Each month a million young men and women are joining the workforce and a majority of them are those from smaller towns and cities, who didn't win the ovarian lottery. To ensure these kids don't lose their future, the Modi government needs to direct our political, economic and social agenda on specific areas that can give a fillip to both employment and employability. And what better time to initiate the process than the first budget!
Here are five key areas in hiring that need immediate attention:
1. Move from job preservation to job creation: The only form of social security and national security our country can afford for its 1.2 billion populations are jobs. While we have witnessed two decades of growth it doesn't seem right because we have added far more informal jobs during the same period than formal.
There is a myopic possessiveness around our labour laws which seem to protect a ridiculous minority of 6% of our workforce only. And they have been allowed to freely hijack the agenda against reforms in the name of protection of the jobs in the formal sector.....Read More

'Retweet With Comment' Twitter's Named its New Feature

The "Retweet with comment" feature lets you showcase the original tweet in a Twitter Card, leaving you with a full 140 characters to respond. As of now, your only options for responding to another tweet are to reply, leaving out any reference to the original tweet, or quote the tweet, which takes up a lot of your 140 characters.
The "Retweet with comment" would probably replace the "Quote the tweet" option, which simply lets you add your two cents to the original tweet.
The idea is that this feature would foster more conversations on Twitter, allowing for context while not detracting from the length allotted for a response, which users currently experience with the "Quote the tweet" option. This way tweeters can have more space to voice their opinion while still linking to the original tweet.
According to TechCrunch, Twitter is currently testing out the "Retweet with comment" feature with just a portion of its user base. Kurt Wagner of Mashable first detected the new feature in a tweet sent by Twitter's head of communications, Carolyn Penner. But it seems like the test goes beyond internal with random users seeing the switch as well.        Read More..

Apple will launch 32GB and 64GB capacities of the phone for 5,288 yuan ($846) and 6,288 yuan ($1008), indicating that Apple may launch the iPhone 6 without a 16GB model. Notably, 5,288 yuan is the current price for the 16GB iPhone 5s in China, while the 32GB iPhone 5s is listed at 6,088 yuan.
A September launch would be consistent with the past two iPhone launches, as Apple also typically launches new products on a Friday. A reportBloomberg earlier this week also claimed that Apple may launch the larger 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6 and the 4.7-inch version simultaneously, with previous reports indicating that issues with battery and display technology would hold up the larger device's launch. In addition to a larger display, the iPhone 6 is expected to feature a thinner design, a faster A8 processor, and Apple will look to launch the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 on Friday, September 19, according to a new reportChinese web portal Tencent (Google Translate, via GforGames) citing inside sources.

Amazon is searching for Freelance Developers and Offering up to Rs.9 lakhs.

Amazon is offering $5,000 per app optimized for Fire Phone, paid out in tax-free Amazon Coins, the digital currency that lets you buy stuff in Amazon's Appstore. Each developer account can create up to three qualifying apps for a total potential payday of $15,000.

We first heard about the story on AndroidPolice.

Of course, there are some strict guidelines to follow in order to qualify for the full $5,000 per app.
Basically, Amazon is ensuring that its new 3D "Dynamic Perspective" feature will be used to some extent in the app, which would help the feature from falling into gimmicky obscurity. Dynamic Perspective is a bit similar to the parallax feature on iPhones, but it takes things to another level by using the Fire Phone's extra cameras to add 3D depth to apps and home screens, so that things shift and react to your movements.

Other than that, Amazon is also requiring apps to integrate with its multitasking user interface "Carousel" to keep browsing between different apps cohesive.

Why is Amazon offering developers essentially free money?

It's important to remember that Amazon is entering the smartphone market at a time where fragmentation is at an all time high. This trend can increase the workload for developers seeking to offer their app on as many platforms as possible, an issue Android has run into into in the past, and Apple could face if it continues to expand its iPhone product line.
                                                                                                                                     Read More...

9 signs you should Search for a new job

Here are some leading indicators that your IT career growth might be of little interest in your current employment and that staying where you are could mean further spinning your wheels at a time when your technology skills are in great demand.
1. New ideas meet red lights
Earning a stable income to endure ongoing tedium isn't everyone's ultimate goal for a career in IT. Unfortunately, that's all some employers have to offer -- even if it didn't seem that way when you took the job years ago.
Stagnation can mean career death in a competitive field, and if your company isn't offering unique, forward-looking projects, it might be time to hit the road.
"The speed of change that businesses are seeing today means that our IT organization needs to be more flexible, more adaptable, and we challenge the status quo more than ever," says Philip Garland, CIO at consulting firm PwC. "Disruptive innovation is the name of the game for our IT professionals."
The surest sign that your employer isn't facing this reality? A pervasive fear of failure can be felt throughout IT.

2. Respect and recognition are afterthoughts
Competitive pressures should not translate into poor treatment of staffers and co-workers, but all too often, dignity and respect take a back seat when the going gets tough.
When contention impedes results, a change of scenery may be the right call.

Interview Question You Should Never Ask

Here is one question for all the recruiters out here! How many of you have asked ‘What is your greatest weakness?’ to a candidate while interviewing him?

There would be many who would agree that they have asked this question to the candidates while interviewing them. If you are one among those, then can you simply tell how did that question helped you in deciding whether he is the right pick for the job vacancy or not?
Well, the truth is not just the candidates hate this question, but also it’s answer doesn’t lead to any fantastic insider about them.

Well, here are 2 main reasons for why you shouldn’t ask this question:

1.Sense of awareness might bring manipulation
In case, the candidate has a great level of self-awareness, and he knows what all are his weak points, then too his answer wouldn’t help you to judge whether it is the same candidate that you are looking for or not. Yes! With the high level of self-awareness, the level of smartness would also be high, and this broadens the chances of getting a manipulated answer. In simpler terms, chances are that either he would have worked upon his weaknesses and so he won’t have anything to answer, or with his sharp presence of mind, he would make sure that he gives a manipulative answer. So, again your purpose of peeping into the weaknesses of the candidate would fail.

2.The Candidate himself doesn’t know the answer
Most of the candidates themselves do not know about their weaknesses. In fact, according to one study, most people do not know what others think about them, they just believe or think about themselves as what they want to. This is one of the reasons for why they cannot figure out what’s missing in them, or what is there that they need to work upon. So, when they do not know the correct answer, they get fumble and give some vague reply, which won’t be helpful to you in any sense.

How to Increase Your Blog’s Social Media Presence ?

Do you want more people sharing your Blog content across various social media channels?
Blog posts are the hub of your social media presence.

1.Integrate Blog and Social Media Comments
Many bloggers are discovering something interesting: When they update Facebook with a link to a new blog article, fans are leaving comments on the Facebook update instead of the blog.

2.Add Social Media Sharing Buttons/Widgets
Readers like things to be easy. If you make it easy for them to share, they’re more likely to do it.
To that end, social sharing buttons are the basic need of integrating social media into your blog.

3.Content should be valuable which you are Sharing 
Many websites offer free resources to readers who sign up for an email subscription. Why not do the same for your blog content? If you have popular posts with consistent traffic, “lock” them and ask readers for a share before they can access the content.
While this is an effective strategy because it requires people to share an article before they have read it. To alleviate this, don’t lock up the entire article. Instead, reveal a strong introduction that entices the reader to share to continue.

4.Include Attractive Images into your Posts
These days it’s all about the images. Every social media network from Pinterest and Facebook to Google+ and Twitter emphasizes visual content. That means each one of your blog posts should have an image that inspires your readers enough to share it.

How to Use Social Media For Effective Job Search in 2014 ?

Social media can definitely  provide you better information and connections that are vital to your job search. You can research companies and industries, but you can also contact alumni who work at a company to learn even more.Having a social media presence is one of the better way for you to market yourself, to develop networking connections, to join groups and be connected to resources in your field(s) of interest, and to be accessible to others who are seeking a person with your skills, qualifications, interests, and expertise.

Using social media in your job search is about linking yourself into the technological world of social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. These are the three most popular sites, which will be described in more detail later

Why Use Social Media? 

An expanding number of managements are utilizing social networking destinations to enroll and to promote for workers. The larger part of open employments are not posted on employment sheets, yet are found through systems administration. Utilizing social networking locales as a systems administration instrument can help you discover informal occupation postings or get some answers concerning employment opportunities through your online associations at the organizations you are most intrigued by. Online networking has turned into a route for experts to system and "meet" several individuals. Utilizing person to person communication as a part of your pursuit of employment is essential on the grounds that:


  1. It demonstrates employers that you are well versed in current internet and social networking capabilities.
  2. It helps you to create and showcase your "particular brand" or your online profile 
  3. It join you to circumstances that are overall never made accessible to employment seekers in light of the fact that they aren't posted on occupation sheets 
  4. It fabricates your expert systems administration contacts, which are urgent to your pursuit of employment 
  5. It permits you to research about commercial enterprises, organizations, and your positions of interest.
  6. It makes your presence  to  visible to hiring managers, recruiters & other entrepreneur's.
The motto is to shift your emphasis from looking at positions to finding people. Start by creating and maintaining up-to-date comprehensive profiles on one of the three most commonly used social media sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.





Using LinkedIn Professionally

LinkedIn Jobs suggests open positions that align with your interests and allows you to search jobs based on different categories. You can also see how you are linked to a person who posted the job opening,
Follow companies and industries you are interested or suits your profile.
Research your recruiters or interviewers through their LinkedIn profiles.

Facebook and Twitter

Facebook and Twitter can be just as effective in your job search as Linked In. These two platforms are traditionally used more socially than professionally, so it is very important to be aware of your online presence and the image you are projecting on your social profile so be aware & smart . Keep updating your profile from time to time

More and more companies are using Facebook and Twitter for recruiting and hiring in 2014
Like and Follow companies you are interested in
Re-tweet or share interesting posts by these companies
If you have a professional interest or area of expertise, become a go-getter person in that area
Create a blog, focus your tweets on that subject or, post interesting articles on your LinkedIn and Facebook pages. 




Social Hiring is the Latest Trend Now

If you are not on social platform's then you will have missed some hiring opportunities as of now, you probably have completely missed out a trick. And in that includes, if you are not probably on Linked In, Facebook, Twitter, if you do not have plans in terms of how people would follow you, if you have not thought through how you would advertise jobs, and you would have people find you in some way. In my view, I think some of the best class companies at this point of time are doing lot of things which are like search optimization is one of the biggest things that a lot of companies are doing, which effectively means that if somebody goes to a search engine and types jobs or jobs of particular skill, profession, or an industry, then probably your company would come in the first one or two, because the research shows that a lot of people click only one or two and get on there. I think it is very important for you to think through from a jobs perspective, overall on how you advertise & track & get people through the door, in terms of being present on the social media.

Appearing for Next Interview? Should prepare these 2 Questions.

Candidates with one to three years experience are much in demand today. However, corporates are also very cautious and selective when it comes to hiring experience candidates as they are skilled personnel who will deliver from day one and stay for long.

What is your biggest weakness?
HR experts suggest a different approach to this question: “It is alright to talk about your weakness, what is important is what steps you took to get around it, so that it’s not a hindrance to others,’’ says Singh. “So after saying, ‘I tend to get impatient’ it is far smarter to focus on how you warned your team members about it and asked them to raise a red-flag to make you aware of it.”
Tell Me One Thing You Would like to Change About Your Last Job
This according to experts is the question candidates should be wary of. “Disparaging comments about former co-workers and bosses is a definite no-no. At the same time the candidate needs to be able to vocalise pain-points,’’ says Chakraborty. “It is best to be ready with a line that does not criticise anyone or the organisation but simply states a process that needs to be tweaked a bit.’’

One level easier — Vps, conveyance heads and group pioneers — a higher number of individuals have surrendered, taking representative steady loss to a record-breaking high of 18.7% in the simply finished quarter. Sources at recruitment firms appraise that in about 500 mid-level chiefs have left Infy under Murthy's watch this previous year.

Infy's misfortune of armies of its pioneers undermines to be the greatest smudge on Murthy's rebound scorecard. "There may be further passageways at the top administration, which may put at hazard, our postulation of turnaround and income development recuperation," examiners Govind Agarwal and Arshad Perwez at financier firm JM Financial said in a note after Srinivas surrendered a week ago.

Authority is at the heart of the issue Infosys confronts today. At one level — in any event till Monday when ET reported that previous SAP board part Vishal Sikka was the leader — the greatest vulnerability was over Infy's new CEO. Anyway at an alternate level, a just as grave issue is the departure of second and third-generation leaders

Is Self-Employment Riskier Than the Traditional 9 to 5?

Getting a job as an employee in a company with organized health and retirement benefits is the default and safe position in the working world. Anything outside of the safe, steady, in-house job environment—be that contracting or self employment—is seen as high-risk, high-stakes poker. But, is this assumption still correct? Is self-employment riskier than the traditional 9 to 5?

For example, one massive risk with full-time, permanent employment is that all your eggs are in one basket. If a recession hits and you are laid off, or you get fired for performance, it can be a catastrophic event; your income can drop to zero immediately, as you have no other income channels. You haven’t spread your risk, like you might do when you are self-employed (having several clients), and in this sense, having one in-house job is riskier than being self-employed where the loss of one client for whatever reason is not so catastrophic as you have other clients providing income to tide you over until you can replace the lost client.
Another risk with full-time, permanent employment is that the sands are shifting beneath employees’ feet. Reported in the HBR suggests that the rate of growth of contingent workers (freelance, contractors, part-time) is four times the growth rate of traditional workforces and that contingent workers will eventually make up 25 percent of the workforce.

Apple finally admiting about its i-Message bug

Apple has Finally admitted to a problem in its iMessage text message App.

The problem occurs when you attempt to move away from an iPhone to another type of smartphone.
Once Apple gets you into iMessage, it assumes you will stay there. If you switch from an iPhone to a phone running a different operating system (as many people, me included, have done), messages people send to you using iMessage simply disappear.
The sender is not told they weren’t delivered, and the intended recipient has no way of knowing they never got a message – because they never got a message.
Apple has been extremely reluctant to admit there has been a problem, blaming poor user behaviour.

But now, in a statement to tech news site Re/code, Apple has fussed up – a little. ''We recently fixed a server-side iMessage bug which was causing an issue for some users, and we have an additional bug fix in a future software update,” Apple said. “For users still experiencing an issue, please contact AppleCare.''
A simple Google search shows that the problem is widespread. Apple’s refusal to acknowledge it until now is, sadly, typical of its behaviour.

E-commerce ready for creation of 50k new jobs in India.

As foreign and domestic e-retail majors such as Amazon ,Snapdeal and Flipkart expand their businesses aggressively, hiring activities are expected to grow by over 30% in the sector and may help create up to 50,000 jobs in the next 2-3 years.According to leading human resources consultancy Randstad India, the hiring in this space is likely to rise by 20-30% in next few years on the back of entry of domestic online start-ups and e-commerce MNCs into Indian marketplace, as also because of setting up of back-office operations for various global businesses.

Another HR firm Unison International says that hiring has been rather slow in the e-commerce space over last couple of years, but recruitment may grow rapidly now by 33% over the previous year as various retail brands are also bringing in their business online.

As per findings of Jigsaw Academy, the e-commerce industry may create 15,000-50,000 jobs in the next three years for data analysts professionals alone.

"With global e-commerce giants entering India, demand for talent will increase along with compensation for top executives," Randstad India's Uppaluri said.

"The management and technical roles recruited from top B-schools and engineering campuses, have a starting package between Rs 8 to 12 lakhs per annum while senior executive compensations range from Rs 50 to 75 lakhs with attractive employee stock options plans (ESOPs)," he added.

Unison International MD Udit Mittal felt that the salary was more for this sector against the traditional retail "majorly because a lot of people who take up job in e-commerce are taking a higher risk as we never know if the e-commerce business model they are working towards will fly or can backfire".

"Traditionally data analysts in the BFSI sector are paid the highest salaries but e-commerce players are the new entrants, they are building their analytics capabilities and in a bid to get the right analytics talent, are offering lucrative salaries to analysts across levels,"
