Is the News New to You?

February 28, 2009

725850_96391811When was the last time you read a newspaper or watched the evening news? Having an understanding what is going on in our world is crucial in landing a job. When being interviewed it is impressive to be able to reference and apply current events into the conversation when it is appropriate. For instance, having an understanding of the stimulus package would be extremely important, particularly if you are looking for a  career in finance or accounting. If you can incorporate your knowledge of the stimulus package into the interview, it can prove you understand the economy in an indirect way.

Following the news is extremely beneficial in the workforce. Our professions are changing daily, and it is important to keep your work up-to-date. Take this test to see where you stand in your knowledge of current events. I got seven out of ten correct.   http://www.cnn.com/2009/LIVING/02/26/quiz.weekly.news/index.html
