I’m a fairly recent grad, and as disheartening as this may be, it was nowhere near easy to land a job–or even an interview–after graduation. I blanketed resumes, stalked people on LinkedIn, and scoured through company’s websites, only to receive no call back. I felt compelled on a daily basis, to march straight into the office of every organization’s CEO and riddle him or her in a distressed, but respectful tone, “Tell me how on earth am I supposed to gain the required experience to work in an organization such as your own if no one will let me gain it. Please, I am dying to know!” Then, after living out that fantasy in my head, I would continue submitting resumes online. It’s really the only thing to do, keep trying, and when you finally get an interview, kill it.
The organization I am currently working for threw every type of interview and interviewer my way, and had I not been ready for the worst, I wouldn’t have gotten the job. This infographic outlines the different types of interviews and the various versions of interviewers that come a long with them. Be prepared, don’t let “The Nice Guy” throw any curve balls. They are more times than not, the trickiest!
Internet freedom is a luxury in America. As much as our government tries to restrict our websites and download clients, we usually let freedom ring. Legislature like SOPA and PIPA have been struck down in the name of a free internet. If you want to know my take I am very pro internet freedom.
When the Stop Internet Piracy Act was up for a vote in Washington, I wrote a post about how the bill’s implication’s could even affect Daily Infographic. I was and am still against censoring or regulating the internet. Iran is a country with a ruler that has most of the power. Internet censorship is a horrible problem in some countries and really shows how the country’s government is favored by the population.
Right now North Korea is having another temper tantrum and is threatening nuclear war. Unfortunately they threaten the US all of the time and experts have said the threats are to keep the DPRK’s citizens too preoccupied with possible war that they forget about the country’s problems. I believe there is a power struggle and the newly crowned leader is using his father’s tactics to slow down a coup. But what do I know, except that North Korea censors their internet extremely strictly. [Via]Share This Infographic
Have you ever been to a fancy restaurant and wondered what the extra spoons and forks were for? I most definitely have. I actually went to a fancy wedding a few years ago and was so flustered with the utensil options that I ended up spilling my water all over the table! Talk about bad table manners! Knowing table etiquette is extremely useful when trying to make a good impression at a work interview or at a first date. However, etiquette classes can be costly for the average person.
Thankfully, today’s infographic gives a brief overview of table etiquette and which utensil is used for what. I had the opportunity to attend a real class, and I can tell you that today’s inforgaphic is the real deal, for free! So learn up and feel confident on your next date or job interview!

There are some inventions that take a while to catch on. Remember when Apple showed everybody the iPad for the first time? Everybody was all like, ‘Who needs an oversized iPhone that doesn’t even let you call people?!” But now look at you. Tablets all over the place. You should be ashamed.
In all seriousness though, what I’m getting at is that every market takes it’s own time to develop an audience and for that audience to grow. Take for instance the 3D printer. Never heard of it? Check this out. While it may not be a true Star Trek replicator, it is quickly becoming one the coolest and functional inventions of the 21st century, allowing one to ‘print out’ anything they want. Imagine, you could print out chairs for party guests, print out a new watch of your own design. You could even print out another 3d printer!!
Though it is a new technology and the prices are still high, I could imagine this machine revolutionizing how we as consumers can get what we want. It’s the next step from making digital ideas into physical realities. I know I want one, what do you think? Is this just a fad? Do you think that this is the next big thing?
