Patriots and Seahawks are Alike

The National Football League season has finally come to the big game and there is a ton of media speculation finally surfacing as to who the favorite is heading into the final week. There has been a media circus that has surrounded the New England Patriots in the last week that has completely dominated the media regarding the Patriots purposely deflating footballs in the AFC championship game against the Indianapolis Colts and subsequently gaining a massive advantage due to the cold conditions that are typically played in the Boston area. The deflate gate case has totally taken away from what everyone has wanted to hear going into the big game, which is how the teams are going to match up against each other and who is the predictable winner. The Seahawks have pretty much remained in the shadows, despite possessing one of the biggest trash talkers and media attention seekers in the National Football League in Richard Sherman, but he is finally breaking through and gaining some attention.
It is kind of ironic that the Patriots are facing this controversy and there has been hardly any talk about the Seattle Seahawks being caught up in a scandal several years ago that involved nearly the entire team taking the prescription drug Adderall to gain a competitive advantage. It seems that both teams like to push the limits on what is fair and what is not according to Xrossfire.com fans like Lee Slaughter are expected to weigh in on what they feel is a fair outcome for both teams. We will see who takes the Super Bowl next weekend.

 

Jared Haftel’s Argument for Dedicating Your Resume to Real Occupation Accomplishments

Jared Haftel completed his studies and graduated in 2009 from Duke University. Jared Haftel’s 5 year stay in this university saw him attain three different degrees; Economics, Mathematics and Science. All these credentials have made him to serve incredibly well in his career of investment banking in high profile companies.

He started by working in Merrill Lynch, where he served as an analyst in investment banking and particularly gave professional insight for some prominent companies such as CONSOLE Energy and GeoEye. The experience and exposure he got from these institutions made him to land key positions in investment banking industry. Some of these major positions included his time in service as an analyst in investment banking in the Bank of America, and also served as Vector capital associate.

Besides his excellent school performance and remarkable career life, Jared has always deemed it right to share some success tips to young fellows especially those graduating from university and looking forward to get a job as investment bankers or anything related to this.

Jared explains the importance of a crafting appealing resumes when applying for a job. He begins by stating that dedicating your resume to a real career accomplishment is the best decision that you can ever make. This is due to the fact that, it is more important to outline your potential worth to any prospective employers, and this can only be done by displaying to them what you have already achieved.

A good resume should contain 50% work experience that is relevant mostly if you are looking for big jobs. The reason for this is that it is the most crucial factor when looking for big gigs. Vast experience in a particular field is the main aspect that is looked out for when searching for a job opportunity that pays well, and offers you limitless opportunities. In this regard, your resume should replicate your experience in that field of occupation. It is not advisable to focus on things you did in university or in high school. Actually, you should completely leave out everything that is related to high school, since there is no high profile corporate institution that cares about high school stuff. So, if you wish to succeed in getting the big gigs, you have to utilize the relevant career accolades.

A job position that you had in a bank or any recognized financial institution, accomplishments you have attained while you are an employee at your present or previous occupation. These are the important aspects that any prospective employer expects to see or hear. They expect to know the reasons why they are obtaining a fine employee, a person that is trustworthy and one that can get the job done in the required way.

However, you should also be ready to answer demanding questions. Similar to what Jared says, in some instances you should be willing to engage in complex conversations if at all you desire to accomplish anything substantial in your career. This means giving reasons why you wish to depart from your current job, or reason why you have already left the position you held previously. These two are quite important since they help in driving home factors to support your candidacy for the position been offered, but at the same time indicates that there is nothing wrong you did or any bad blood in your previous job environment.

The Distinguished Career of Sam Tabar

Excellence seems to have always been Sam Tabar’s motto according to a recent CNBC article where he was featured for his savvy tips on good investing habits for 2015. From an early age, he was determined to succeed and reach as high as he could manage.

His first job out of law school was at one of the top law firms in the United States, Skadden. Tabar’s work at Skadden centered around business clients. He advised them on the best way to create and manage their hedge funds, along with approving their investment decisions, and dealing with other legal issues pertaining to a business.

He started out with the company as general counsel, but worked his way up to a Managing Director position. His meteoric rise at the PMA Investment Advisers group was a testament to Tabar’s knowledge, hard work and dedication to the company.
