Are Your Job Search Tactics Out of Date?

Searching for a job using outdated tactics can make the job hunting process an uphill battle. Job search methods have changed dramatically, especially in the last few years. With social media, applicant tracking systems and search engines playing a crucial role in recruitment, it is essential for you to update your job search methods. This will increase your chances of getting a job and open up new networking opportunities.

You Are Overprotective of Your Privacy

When you search Google for your name, what results do you see? If nothing comes up or the results show other people, you may think that you are doing the right thing by protecting your privacy. In reality, you are actually hurting your prospects of being hired. If employers are unable to find any information about you on the Internet, they may view that as a sign that you don’t know how to use the Internet to search for a job.

Judge Aborts North Dakota Abortion Law

The issue of abortion can be considered one of the most controversial topics in American culture. With the contrasting opinions of pro-life versus pro-choice, the tension within this argument has changed many state laws recently. While many states retain restrictions and tight regulations on abortions, the federal government has slowly begun to dismantle anti-abortion legislation. The most recent case involves a federal judge ruling North Dakota’s abortion law as unconstitutional. The law previously banned abortions after six weeks of pregnancy (due to the first signs of a fetal heartbeat), but now the federal government has overturned this law, providing leniency to those that favor the views of pro-choice. U.S. District Daniel L. Hovland came to this decision in his ruling:

“A woman’s constitutional right to terminate a pregnancy before viability has been recognized by the United States Supreme Court for more than 40 years. The United States Supreme Court has clearly determined the dispositive issue presented in this lawsuit. This court is not free to impose its own view of the law.”

Essentially, Hovland supports the notion that woman are constitutionally entitled to choose what they want to do with their pregnancies. Though this decision has received much acclaim from pro-life advocates, the governor of North Dakota refused to comment immediately on the Hovland’s ruling, possibly suggesting regret over this decision. The dismantling of one of the strictest abortion laws in the United States is a clear sign that further state regulations, in regards to abortion, will be challenged by the federal government in the future.

Oscar Pistorius Maintains Innocence

The murder trial of South African Olympian Oscar Pistorius  reached new heights when Pistorius took the stand a few days ago. While on the stand Pistorius broke down crying as the prosecutor repeatedly told him he shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on purpose.

However, prosecutors say the story goes a little differently. They assert that on the morning of Valentines Day 2013, Pistorius and Steenkamp had an argument and Steenkamp locked herself in the bathroom. Following that Pistorius, in his state of anger, went and grabbed his gun, and then purposely shot through the door with the intent to kill Steenkamp.

It is estimated that the trial will go on for at least another month. What do you think? Is Pistorius innocent or guilty?
