Western Civilization's Historical Guide to The Job Search

The search for a job has evolved dramatically over the millenia. Today, with the use of the Internet, we have the advantage of being able to search all over the world for that perfect position. Of course, it wasn’t always like that. For most of history, men and women have had little to no choice about what it is they would “do” with their lives, and almost always took on the same occupation as their parents. Let’s take a walk through time to see how the search for a job has evolved.

  1. Totally agree with you regards avdsrtieing and how sometimes it pays not to push your products. The two products with the most hype, Wave and Buzz, both crashed and burned as a result of over hyping whereas other Google products that slowly built up credibility and a big audience have become very successful. I do find it sad that no one can really compete with Facebook, but at the same time even if another company created a better product and we all moved over to that, I feel like it would be a case of same problems, different website. The privacy issues surrounding Facebook are the same that any company with that kind of size and uptake face so as much as we love to hammer Facebook and Mark Zuckerburg, it would just be the same bad-guys with a different name.Thanks for dropping by and leaving a great comment btw
