When did we lose track of how much data is being grown and delivered?
I would say never.Data to me is like the change you save in the jar at home.This jar has all the coins from emptying your pockets everyday.You never count it , you just dump it and save it for when you need it.Social Media data is almost the same thing.It just grows every day and only a few people care about it.Well now , its time to empty the jar. Now what are we going to do with it? Who empties the jar ? Who counts the change ? Who spends the money? You can ask the same question using Big Data.The Who,Why and How it is being used and explored every day.
Image, if you owned all the data in the world.It would be like owning all the currencies from all the countries in your pocket.This is why Big Data is the real deal and Social Media will be one of the driving force.
Check out the article below for more details and examples.
More Social Media Data = More Big Data.
Once again I give thanks to Tom Humbarger for posting this article .
Just to be clear… I think it is. Is Education worth it absolutely. Does what you spend equal what you will make ? Who knows.
See how Big Data is being used to create this InfoGraphics on the subject.
That being said, You can find a successful career without going to college.At what price do you wish to pay.I was once told there is a difference between a job and a career.Your time in school should help you decide this choice.Plus the fact that is part of your natural growing experiences in life.Not only that but every parent with kids dream of their child being the next big thing. Students are smarter and know now what the cost of college is.Not only how much it cost,but how much in debt they will be in student loan repayments.

Imagine that your could visualize your career,major milestones and achievements in one picture.
Behold … The InfoGraphic Resume
Well today is the day to do it. We have come to the age that your resume will no longer be boring to the eye.Recruiters and HR coordinators will not have to search for keywords or write algorithms to pick that one candidate with all the skills.My first resume creating instructor told me that make it short and precise.The folks reading it will only take 15 -30 seconds on it.Then it goes in to 2 piles … the Circular one and the Folded one. I preferred the Folded one, so I followed his advice and for years made the same resume with tweaks here and there…Short and Precise.
Today, we have the IOT (Internet of Things) and Social Networks to help us keep pace with the world.It is a natural fit for Big Data and InfoGraphics.The more data you have to back your statistics and presentations, the smarter you seem to be.Like manipulating numbers in a report.”Numbers Don’t Lie” but they can be manipulated and misinterpreted.
With the job market like it is now, it would be hard not to try to use every digital trick in the book.You need to join clubs,meetup ,twitters , Facebook and every reputable job boards available.
With that said, why not join the InfoGraphics move and create one for a resume.I think I will give it a try.What the heck, nothing to lose but time and nothing to gain but knowledge.
