Job Seeker as Video Star
Those researching their next career move will want to check out the latest in online job search. It’s called GetHired.com and it features multimedia resumes, going beyond just one piece of paper listing past jobs and education. Job seekers can build a profile, add video and audio components, and connect with dream job recruiters. And, unlike other job search services that use video resumes, only employers can view candidate videos, meaning privacy among the competition. GetHired also makes it easy to schedule interviews with candidates and conduct those interviews online via video conferencing. The best part, of course, is that the service is FREE. Employers and potential employees can check it out here.
Speaking of resumes, add an educational element to your list of skills – for free. If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to code, or already know how and want to teach others some tricks of the programming trade, Code Academy is the place to go.
WiFi to Go
Last week OnSale told you about new hi-tech cufflinks from the good people at Brookstone. But for those of you who like the idea of taking wireless Internet with you – without having to wear a fancy shirt – have an affordable option from Clearwire (CLWR).
The CLEAR Spot Voyager lets you create a personal hotspot for up to eight Wi-Fi users, and has a battery life of more than six hours. And, while it’s a bit larger than a cufflink, the device is just a 2.6-inche square and weighs 2.1 ounces. There are also 4G usage plans available with the device, starting at just $34.99 per month.
The retail price for the Voyager is $124.99, which doesn’t include tax or shipping. There’s also the CLEAR Hub Express, which is both a wireless router and 4G modem, available for $99.99. It easily creates a 4G hotpsot at home or in the office, without installation or set-up. Order yours at Clear.com.
Art aficionados and collectors who enjoy surveying – and sometimes purchasing – contemporary pieces have a friend in Artspace. The site offers free membership and connects artists and galleries with potential buyers.
As an artspace member, you have exclusive access to insider pricing on new artwork, plus invitations to special events and private sales.

The pricing is competitive, too -- some pieces start at just $100, so if you’re looking to decorate on a budget, or just want exclusive access to great artwork, this is definitely the place for you.
