Want a job with Google or Facebook
January 30, 2018
sir, i am a 11th class student from india .what should i do for becoming an software engineer at top it compneies like google and facebook.
yogesh - India
It is good to have a dream of becoming a software engineer with companies such as Google and Facebook.
You can get information from Google Jobs and Facebook Careers.
However, it is best to start near home, perhaps getting an apprenticeship with an IT company in your community. You really need some good experience before getting hired with a major company.
Best wishes for success in achieving your goals. I am sure you will do well.

Just a quick note to let you know there is a broken link on your page:
Broken link: http://www.mba-online-program.com/
I recently published a new resource for MBA degrees:
It might make a nice addition to your page.
Either way, I hope this helps you out and keep up the great work with the site!

Product design engineering career guide
December 7, 2015
I wanted to reach out and share a resource which I think your students will benefit from.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics has identified product design engineering as a field that is likely to see strong job growth in future years, so in conjunction with Pannam we have put together a guide for anyone considering a career in this area:
I think this would make a valuable addition to this page - http://www.school-for-champions.com/career/resources.htm, alongside the other career resources you have shared.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
All the best,
James - USA
Thanks for the suggested link. I added it to Career Resources.

Greetings from EducatorLabs!
I’m Kathleen, and I work part-time with the EducatorLabs team to research and share useful resources with information-seeking individuals.
Today, my sights are set on jobs… Why, you ask? Well, with 2016 approaching, most of us will make resolutions and seek a fresh start and, for many, this involve a job search.
To assist those looking for help, I spent some time putting together a list of resources, which I wanted to share with you because I thought your site visitors would find them useful.
It’s my goal to encourage 50 people to share these resources in an effort to help others find their dreams in 2016. Let me know if you’re one of the 50 who has decided to stand up and help!
Thank you - and Happy 2016!

Suggested career resource
October 23, 2015
I’d like to make a suggestion to improve this page of your website - http://www.school-for-champions.com/career/resources.htm.
Many of us find ourselves working in an industry or vocation that just doesn’t provide job satisfaction and we might consider a career change; at this point we ask ourselves which job are we most suited to.
That’s where a personality test can be helpful and I’d like to draw your attention to this free one - http://www.sandboxadvisors.com/career-change-choice/free-personality-test.
To give you some context, ImprovEDU is a volunteer-run organization focused on highlighting noteworthy educational resources. I’m getting in touch with you today because you’ve shared similar information in the past and I feel the above would be of benefit to your visitors, if you’d prefer not to hear from me again please let me know and I will ensure you receive no further emails from our organization.
Thanking you in advance for your time and consideration.
Joel - USA
Thanks for the suggest link. I added it to the Career Resources page.
Let me know when your website is up, and I'll add a link to it from our Education Resources page.
Apparent bogus company listed
May 19, 2015
Dear Website Manager,
I recently used your site during my job search, and I wanted to draw your attention to a website called jobapplicationguide.com, which your page links to. When I visited the About Us section of jobapplicationguide.com (http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:29bIkHkiie8J:www.jobapplicationguide.com/about-us/) to make sure the website was legitimate, a simple Google search revealed that their cached site seems to be using other people's identities to appear more credible and authentic.
The picture of the supposed director David Brooklingdale originally came from the profile of a Professor Michael Minkenberg (https://www.kuwi.europa-uni.de/en/lehrstuhl/vs/politik1/team/lehrstuhlinhaber/index.html), and the one of site student liaison Debera Turner-Bryant is actually a teacher named Alessandra Pogianni (http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/newsandeventspggrp/imperialcollege/businessschool/newssummary/news_8-6-2012-12-50-33).
As it turns out, the pictures of the other two team members were also taken from other sources. The picture of assistant director Julie Anderson can be found at the bottom of the page at http://www.unipa.it/dipartimenti/distem/The-Laboratory-of-Marine-Biology-and-Resources---LaBioMaR/, where it appears she is actually some kind of researcher, and the picture of technical supervisor Michael Moran is really an image of a student named Francesco Romano, seen here: http://www.internetfestival.it/en/protagonisti/francesco-romano/.
With so many scams out there for job seekers to worry about, I hope you will take appropriate action over your endorsement of this clearly fraudulent website.
Thanks for your time.

The Job Application Guide website certainly looks legit, and it seems to have some good information for job seekers. However, the use of other people's pictures certainly is troubling. Why would they do that, unless their people are extremely ugly?
I see that they removed the pictures on May 14, 2015.
Anyways, I deleted the item from the Career Resources page.
Thanks for your diligent research concerning this company.
Hopefully, this reader feedback has helped provide information about Career issues.
