‘The Wall Street Journal’ Staffers Land Swag on 125th Anniversary

candlesAs you can probably agree, it’s no easy feat remaining afloat in publishing right now let alone celebrating 125 years!

According to Jim Romenesko, in honor of the 125th anniversary today at The Wall Street Journal, employees received goodie bags. While most of the contents remain a mystery, per the site it sounds like ice cream scoops were “a real hit.”

Another tipster told Romenesko there were also cell phone charges along with a few other things.

In any event, congrats on their huge milestone!

Media Powerhouses Dish Career Inspiration at 2014 Matrix Awards

NYWICI logoAs this week comes to a close, we can’t help but recall one of the highlights in Manhattan: The Matrix Awards.

MediaJobsDaily was front row and center (okay, more like table 8 near the stage but still…) at the Waldorf Astoria in midtown. Regardless, the annual Matrix Awards presented by New York Women in Communications did not disappoint!

After conducting red carpet interviews to be aired shortly, it was time to settle in for an afternoon of motivation and inspiration. Oh, did we mention Gloria Steinem was in the house? Along with hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb and notable names like Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah and Cynthia McFadden, in true form the luncheon was full of memorable moments and of course, quotes.

One by one as each presenter and honoree gave their speech, there’s a common thread. Persistence, dedication, setbacks, risks and overall achievements. They all had to start somewhere, they all had to earn their first byline, their first rejection and get back up on their feet again. Look at Queen Latifah who’s now a talk show host and started her career in a male-dominated industry.

That’s why their stories have so much mojo and meaning — they all have a back story. You have a back story. We all do and that’s what makes us so vibrant, interesting and  resilient.

So, without further ado, let’s check out some of the quotes and then, of course, look at the list of winners… Read more

Want to Ramp Up Your Career in the New Year? Look at Successful Dieters for Inspiration

scaleHave you ever noticed when you’re truly focused on achieving a goal, everything else falls into place? You’re so focused, determined and persistent that other things around you look like a similar goal? Maybe it’s just us?

Anyway, we read this post on LinkedIn by John C. Abell, their senior editor, and it resonated with us. Although his post is about the habits of highly successful dieters since he lost 80 pounds on Weight Watchers, we couldn’t help but make the connection to highly successful achievers. (And if you want to drop a few pounds in the new year, his tips make total and complete sense). Read more

News Anchor Publicly Announces Resignation in ‘#Xmas Jammies’ Video

If you’re among the 12 million YouTube viewers of the hilarious tongue-in-cheek Christmas card video by the Holderness family of Raleigh, you’re not alone. This spoof on traditional holiday cards mentioned that Penn Holderness will resign from his role as local news anchor.

In the video his wife rapped, “The biggest thing is what happens next — as of next month, he’s stepping off the anchor desk. It’s the biggest decision of his life, he’s going to step off the desk and come work with his wife!”

All we can say is bravo for their ingenuity and not-so-shameless plug of their next venture, a video production company called The Green Room.

And on that note, happy holidays to all and to all a good night.

What Resume? Web Designer Creates Video Game as CV

Find a JobEveryone should have a resume, right?

Okay, let’s rephrase that. Everyone should have a resume but lately it seems that comes after the fact. Contacts get to know you as a person and then ask for the soft copy version in order to circulate it.

If you’re in the camp that CVs are becoming obsolete, you’re not alone. Your LinkedIn profile and Web site may certainly speak for themselves. The resume feels more like an afterthought, doesn’t it? Read more
