7 Tips for Job Seekers

February 24th, 2011 Martin Raske No comments

Social Media is changing the world. I guess we agree on that.

When I started to get involved with Social Media my motivation was to see what it could do for corporate learning. In the meantime I am also investigating what it can do for the whole HR function and the whole employee lifecycle. An interesting blog article I found comes from Kelly Dingee: She shares "7 Things Employers Should Tell Job Seekers About How to Get Considered":

SOMESSO - Social Media Meet Up

May 21st, 2010 Martin Raske No comments

#csmm - the Twitter Hashtag for yesterday's Social Media Meet Up in Zürich at cinema Razzia, organized by SOMESSO and Signorellfilms.

The learnings I took home:

a) it is possible to build a bank from scratch, using Web 2.0 functionalities: The CEO, Matthias Kröner (@ficoba), know how to tell stories and he has to tell a very convincing one.

b) Riccardo Signorell (@signorellfilms) showed us the importance of telling strories - instead of selling products/ideas. He did this by showing many examples from all kind of different movies - from Hollywood blockbusters to Youtube perls.

Meeting in a Cinema that falls appart and talking about current and future developments in the way we interact and make business is a very cool combination. Makes you think twice.

Can everybody learn how to learn?

July 25th, 2009 Martin Raske No comments

That's a question I was asked in an interview recently. My answer was: Yes. We have all learned how to walk, how to talk, how to eat etc. without a sophisticated instructional design. For me that's proof enough that we are able to learn on our own. Later in our lives we often un-learn these skills, as more and more instructors enter into our lives. But I am convinced that we can re-learn it easily.

The Value of Twitter

June 16th, 2009 Martin Raske No comments

Twittering is like hugging. Just because it's hard to measure the return on investment doesn't mean there isn't value there.
