ECONOMICS - No More Résumés, Say Some Firms

0 comments
'Instead of asking for résumés, the New York venture-capital firm—which has invested in Twitter, Foursquare, Zynga and other technology companies—asked applicants to send links representing their "Web presence," such as a Twitter account or Tumblr blog. Applicants also had to submit short videos demonstrating their interest in the position.
Union Square says its process nets better-quality candidates —especially for a venture-capital operation that invests heavily in the Internet and social-media—and the firm plans to use it going forward to fill analyst positions and other jobs.

Some are bypassing the staid requirement - onto personal blog, Twitter feed, LinkedIn profile, and links to social-media sites Delicious and Dopplr, which showed places where she had traveled. 'If we had just looked at their résumés at the moment we wouldn't have hired them'.'

PEOPLE - On the Wrong Path? 6 Steps to Finding Your Way

0 comments
If you find yourself feeling like you’re on the wrong career path, don’t panic
1. Do What You Can With What You Have

2. Listen to Your Inner Voice - I knew, deep down, that the work I was doing wasn’t the work I was meant to be doing - lacking the
3. Redefine Success - It is about feeling deep fulfillment and meaning, eliminating unhappiness from my life, and experiencing progress every day.
4. Find Someone Who Believes in You - Invaluable when you take the leap "Why not?" "What’s the worst that can happen?"
5. Pick Something - I had no idea what I wanted when I first arrived in New York. I only knew what I didn’t want. So I decided to pick something, anything, that seemed interesting. I figured that picking something was better than picking nothing at all, and the only way we figure out what we really do want from life is when we go out and actually do something.
6. Make it Happen - If you have an in with a company that aligns with your new definition of success,

and tell them how you want to help. If they say no, keep trying until you find one that says yes

EARTH - Rare caterpillar-like horizontal earthquake discovered

0 comments
Imagine that, as you sit reading this story, your entire city suddenly snaps a foot to the south. That's what happened to the city of Kohat, Pakistan, in 1992. A magnitude-6.0 earthquake moved a 30-square-mile (80-square-kilometer) swath of land one foot (30 centimeters) horizontally in a split second, leveling buildings and killing more than 200 people. The area hadn't experienced many temblors before, making the earthquake an unusual occurrence. Now, 20 years later, geologists have used satellite and seismic data to track down the cause of that rare quake — an equally rare type of fault.
"The pattern we saw was absolutely a dead ringer for a horizontal fault.
