University of Florida Class of 26
Whenever you are printing something, do a final check at the print site, with two people. I was lucky enough to learn this lesson in college when we printed two hundred shirts for a night at the ballpark sponsored by the “Publuc Relations Department.”
We were lucky enough to not have it on the evening news. Can’t say the same for the kids from Florida.
RadioShack Uses E-Mail to Fire Employees
Employee communications. Very, very important. What sort of message do you think this sends to current employees?
You should be happy you didn’t get an email? I think it says that ‘we don’t value our employees or the contributions they have made to the company.”
Whether you work at a large or a small company, make sure the head of HR knows you, knows your work, and lets you at least see any companywide communication before it goes out.

I’m not taking a stand here on the issue since I can’t vote on it, I live in El Dorado County.
For some words from both sides on the issue check out Prosper Mag’s online forum.

Just a thought.

Kids Say the Darndest Things in Their Blogs
Sometimes it’s hard to say ‘no’ to the media, but people need to learn how to do it.
Why would Jared Watts agree to talk to the Washington Post about this issue? Forevermore, when someone googles his name, this article will come up and he will have to explain why he referred to a customer as the “Middle-Aged Wench of Doom.”
Not all press is good press. Before you agree to participate in an article, find out the angle, who else the reporter is talking to etc.
