Stopje mei boarch, lit ús ynvestearje yn kâns

jild smiteAmericans hate to lose a war, period. In one view, the dying automotive industry is a war that we think we're losing. I don't believe we're losing anything, I believe we're progressing. Jobs moving overseas always sounds ominous, but people always ignore that we're creating new jobs right here in this nation that have never been heard before.

Ik bin in libbend foarbyld hjirfan. Fresh out of the Navy, my first job was an industrial electrician at a Newspaper. I stayed in the newspaper industry for a decade before I was pushed out, and I'm forever grateful. I wonder what would have happened if my superiors were útkocht and didn't need to change. Would I still be suffering in a dying industry?

Besjoch it Social Media Manager posysje that's open at HP. They're looking for someone with a proven blogging record, a knowledge of Wikis en Twitter. They want to transform that person's knowledge and develop Key Performance Indicators for the business to monitor their social media strategy.

Kompjûterproduksje ferhuze in protte jierren lyn offshore ... binne de jonges dy't har baan yn it bûtenlân ferlearen op syk nei in útdieling fan 'e Amerikaanske regearing? Nee, se ferskoden fan rjochting en kearden har talinten fan ûntwerp en produksje en ferpleatse it nei de ûndernimmende en geniale startups op it ynternet.

If our nation (and others) wish to remain at the forefront of leveraging technology, then we need to constantly be looking towards the future. We've done automobiles already… check it off the list and let it move to a country that is hungry to take it over. Meanwhile, our auto industry employees should be looking to the next challenge such as engineering and constructing alternative energy sources.

For ol' school marketers, it's time to move on folks! Begin educating yourself and your clients on the next opportunity – blogging, reputation management and social media are here – they aren't on the horizon. It's time to make the change, before you find yourself in line begging for a bailout.

Op in sydnot, kudos nei HP foar antisipearjen fan 'e needsaak om in ynterne strategie foar sosjale media te ûntwikkeljen!

    Doug,

    Ik koe der net mear mei iens wêze. It liket derop dat guon plakken / minsken net wolle feroarje en oanpasse as ús maatskippij feroaret mei technology. Ik tink dat Indiana dêr in goed foarbyld fan is, safolle fan 'e regearingsprogramma's binne rjochte op behâlden en kreëarjen fan produksjebanen, wylst se de mooglikheid negearje dat Indiana in broeinest wêze kin foar technologyske foarútgong.

    Goed sein Doug - gjin bettere manier om kreativiteit en ynnovaasje te smoaren dan om merkswings (net te hawwen oer minne saaklike besluten) te beleanjen mei hânouts fan oerheid.
