Working from home can be a fantastic experience. It offers the opportunity to access true comfort, creativity, and efficiency in the workplace, without ever having to change out of your pyjamas (unless you have a meeting of course). Unfortunately, if you fail to organise your home office space effectively, or make it too casual, then you could miss out on the productivity that’s so often associated with remote working.
In this brave new technologically fuelled world, the role of a full-stack developer has evolved into something quite extraordinary. Originally when asked to research this role for our “When I Grow Up” series, my knowledge barely skimmed the surface of the full scope and spec of a full-stacker. After reading countless forums and speaking to the savvy developers themselves, it was quite clear I’d entered their complex rabbit-hole filled with languages, databases, scripting and UX design. It finally clicked that I was dealing with the techie Jedis that go far beyond the ‘Senior Engineer’. These were the masters. Full-Stackers have the higher view of the connecting pieces and apply their skill-sets to make something technically beautiful from the consumers’ perspective to the back-end workings, and everything in between.
In this fast evolving digital era, jobseekers must be vigilant when building a resume, especially when it coincides with having a visible online presence. Of course, the majority of jobseekers are well aware of the implications that negligence can have when applying for jobs, however many people end up doing the same silly mistakes. We've outlined the Five Commandments to follow as a rule of thumb when job hunting in the digital age.

As the internet has grown, more and more companies have built better experiences to improve customer engagement and gain competitive advantage. As a designer, product person or developer you've probably heard of user experience (UX) and are already doing some UX whether you know it or not. For those new to UX, you're thinking how do UX Designers think? How do they go from an initial challenge to a user friendly solution? How can I apply UX to my own projects?
Hiring the right people for your team is hard work, but selecting a leader? At times, it can seem an impossible task. When it comes to recruiting for management roles there are particular qualities and experiences that should be on every interviewer’s checklist. A management position, no matter the business or industry, requires individuals that can think on the spot, devise innovative solutions and juggle a multitude of responsibilities. All at the same time. A natural drive, emotional intelligence and genuine passion for the work are amongst some of the leading attributes that signpost your next great management hire!
That's right folks, JobAdvisor will shortly be launching in the UK! Here at JobAdvisor HQ, we are all super excited to celebrate the next leg of our global journey. Please tell your friends overseas - we'd really appreciate your support to help us grow to help more businesses build better brands.
It’s Monday morning and as you pull the sheets to one side, swing one heavy leg out of the bed closely followed by the other, wipe the sleep from your eyes and drag yourself into the shower to start another day in a job you don’t enjoy, working for people you don’t like. Ask yourself is there something else I would rather be doing, or is there somewhere else you’d rather be doing it?
It's no surprise that we're in a rapidly evolving digital era, where consumers are hungry and expectant for user-friendly apps and slick web designs. Consumers these days download apps or visit a site and expect to navigate through it as if they've built it in their sleep without a second thought. This is where the UX Designer comes in. The role of the UX Designer is fairly new and has quickly crept up on us in within the tech and mobile scene, however it's fair to say that there are quite a few people out there who still have absolutely no idea what a UX Designer actually is or does in their day to day working life.
In an effort to have more happy, engaged employees, smart companies are looking to the world of community management. Online community managers, who have been around since the earliest days of the web, are experts at creating the four key elements of community - membership, influence, fulfillment of needs and shared emotional connection. And they often do it without the people in the room (what better way to approach the remote and distributed teams of the 21st century!)
