THE lines of the Federated Malay States, Straits Settlements, and Johore State Railways have a special interest of their own.

As CMI research shows, marketers with a documented content marketing strategy are more effective than those who don’t have a written strategy. Yet,only 27% of B2C and 48% of B2B marketers have developed a plan.

The best proposal, though, is one you…Continue

Data is confirming what we already know: recruiting is an imprecise activity, and degrees don’t communicate much about a candidate’s potential and fit. Employers need to know what a student knows and can do.
Something is clearly wrong when only 11% of business leaders — compared to 96% of chief academic officers — believe that graduates have the requisite skills for the workforce. It’s therefore unlikely that business leaders…Continue

For instance, you can be connected to Bill Gates, Mark Cuban, or another idolized success, but if the relationship isn’t strong enough to help you out, is it really that valuable? It’s important to not get distracted by aiming for relationships with big-name…Continue
