Interviewing for Success

When it comes to job interviews, I have spent a lot of time on both sides of the table (though there’s not always a table). There is advice all over the Internet about how to interview successfully. You probably already know the common themes: dress well, bring a good resume, don’t be late, smile, etc. I’m not going to cover those here, but rather dig into some of the less common advice and offer more detail than is usually provided by advice sites.

Basic Intellectual Property Concepts

Intellectual property is commonly misunderstood, when it need not be. Mixing up the basic terminology is one of my pet peeves, too. Here, I will give some straightforward and basic information about intellectual property concepts and law. It should be easy to follow! Although they are not the only forms of intellectual property, there are three main types: copyrights, patents, and trademarks. Copyrights In the US (and most of the world), copyright exists for the protection of creative works.

Writing the Perfect Resume

As my previous informational article was received well, and since I am regularly asked for help in writing and revising resumes, I decided it would be a good idea to put down some general advice here. Writing a good resume is not as difficult as it might seem, and it can be the key to getting you an interview, or even a job. Here, you will find reliable advice for crafting a resume that distinguishes you from other applicants.

Demystifying Credit

This could be considered a more practical companion piece to what I wrote yesterday. I was initially on the fence as to whether I should write strictly informational–that is, non-editorial/opinion articles–but I think there are areas where I can provide useful information to people, and this is one of them. My credentials in the credit realm are 7 years working for a receivables management software company, as well as 17 years of utilizing credit in various forms: mortgages, auto loans, personal bank loans, credit cards, students loans.
