Google Part II

Ok - apparently couples, a family or a business (oh almost forgot, a pet either!) can't have a presence in google plus. So, I have it set so my name appears and Jim is a nickname. Hopefully that will work - want his family and friends to find him without having to maintain separate pages!

I did hear from an actual person (via email), which was surprising! I emailed a question and didn't hear back. Not sure when this will be lifted or when it started really. So I will probably resend photo's from our recent trip just in case!

Grrrr... Google!

I love google, don't get me wrong! BUT, this Names Policy is just stupid. Jim and I have a shared account and have a very logical email address for that purpose: jimshiber.marysherwood@gmail.com.

At some point after I started my blog on blogspot, I needed to indicate how I wanted posts to appear. Naively, I decided Jim and Mary at the Beach would be a logical way for any posts or communiques to appear. His name is Jim, my name is Mary, we live at the beach.....

Google does not agree this is logical and, in fact, feels that this name might be nefarious and has suspended my privileges. I am not entirely sure this post will "post!"

This is very aggravating, to say the least. As a long time google user, I know that this violation has been detected and is being reviewed by a computer. I have filed an appeal and also have changed my name in the meantime (although I can't change it back for 30 days). I am not entirely convinced the appeal will be reviewed by a person.

It will be interesting to see how long this takes to resolve - hope not too long.

Assess yourself before job searching


There are several different kinds of résumé s and you may have several versions, depending on where you are in the hiring process and/or what types of jobs you will be seeking. Before starting your résumé , though, you will want to identify your strengths, skills, and abilities.

Take the time to complete a SKILLS AND INTEREST ASSESSMENT like the one from Alpinelink or Rileyguide or Quintcareers which are helpful. Look up typical skills and abilities in ACINET.org In short, think about the following:

In terms of employment, what are you able to
Do?
