small talk

This article is completely right about people will talk about anything to keep the night going. the suggestions they give are some good ones but you have to find the right person for each of them. Personally as a girl, I would not know what to say to someone who brought up sports. I do not like them and i do not care about them. If you brought up my family I could keep the conversation going for days but, then again you have to find the right person because it could be a sore subject.
Small talk at work is a way to get to know people and see if they could be someone you would like to work with more often. This could also lead to customers or clients in the future so it is important that you do not say the wrong thing and bring up a topic that could offend them.

Linkin

I would not use this website in the future, I think it is a good idea and could help people who use it correctly. From the tips that were given in the article I would not use it the way it should be and it says use it correctly, or do not use it at all. I would not update it on a daily basis or as often as it needs to. 
I do think the tips are good. If people are not going to use it correctly then they should have it. Put up a picture so people know who you are and what you look like. It should not matter, but people not look at you at all if you do not have a picture. Also people do not want to be confused, or have a hard time moving around your website so make it clear and visible for sections that are necessary. The website is a great invention it is just not something I would use in the future do to the tips for best use.

What resumes do not show

Resumes do show what work experience people have, but they do not show many other things like if these people were doing work or sitting on facebook all day. What kind of person they are and if they are willing to work as a team. Teams at most jobs are important, and when you get one person that does not want to work as a team it could be difficult to do your job.
Interviews are where people should really let out their true colors. If you are willing to go the extra mile for your job and really care about your job let them know. Do not be scared to say how you really feel because most of the time that is what they are looking to hear not the typical answer they hear all day long. Bosses should look past the resume and what is written down on paper because it could look good when it is on paper but then as soon as they are hired they will show you what kind of worker and per truely son they are.
