For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Email-Phone-LinkedIn Things That Impress You In A Candidate: One of the things that really impress me about a candidate is a very well thought out resume, including contact info - summary - experience - education/certifications. Readability: the resumes contain short paragraphs, with no more than three or four lines. Important points are bulleted. Accomplishments stand out: they are measurable with numbers, dollars, and percentages. Shorter is better 2-3 pages. Please no graphics, charts, or tables. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Also, LinkedIn is a huge tool for recruiters. Please make sure your profile is complete. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: One thing that nearly disqualifies candidates to me is an incomplete or repetitive resume. Even if you have done the same or similar job for 5 years I am sure things changed along the way. Please take the time to explain your contributions to the process. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Internal branding about how data helps management make better decisions has been around for a decade. But to go from data to information and knowledge, data literacy is not enough for the clients of data analytics practitioners. Business data analytics users need accurate multi-disciplinary skills to ask themselves what the data tells us and where and how these insights can be applied.

Within the United States, many state departments of education are lowering teacher certification requirements to meet the demands of the current teacher shortage. In New Jersey, for example, aspiring educators no longer need to take PRAXIS exams. In Arizona, people are now allowed to teach in school with just a high school diploma (and current enrollment in university). In New Mexico, the National Guard has been activated as substitute teachers.
