Education News 1. California Passes First State Law Requiring Ethnic Studies in High School Curriculum California has become the first state in the nation to require ethnic studies as a graduation requirement for high school students. The law was signed by Governor Jerry Brown in July and requires the California Department of Education to develop a model curriculum by 2019. The curriculum is expected to include a variety of topics related to the histories, cultures, and contributions of African Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and Pacific Islanders. Supporters of the law believe it will help increase cultural understanding and reduce racism in the state. 2.

5 Reasons Why The Job Search Is Harder Now - Chameleon Resumes

“Why is this job search so damn hard?” This is a sentiment I hear often… And, yes, the job search nowadays at all levels ain’t easy. It’s always had its challenges… But in this video, I go through 5 stats/scenarios that explain why it’s hard. Thank you to Jim Stroud of SourceCon, Hunt Scanlon, Hung Lee, Bureau of Labor Statistics, and Katrina Kibben for their stats and insights that helped me come up with this list (credit given for each point in the video, too). It’s no wonder job seekers are burned out. These 5 points are big hurdles to overcome. But here is the thing… They are “overcome-able”… 100% First step to fixing a problem is admitting that you have a problem and accepting the situation at hand. So watch this video. And accept the situation… Like you have done 627 times at work. Once you accept the situation, you can come up with a plan. So DM me if you want to have a plan. And until then, keep educating yourself on how recruiting works and what’s going on “on the other side.” Each month, I have a pop-up career chat, aptly named PopUpCareerChat.com, where I speak to executive recruiting experts from different disciplines and tangentially-related-to-hiring experts (like executive comp lawyers, executive coaches, employment lawyers, executive education leaders, etc…) to give YOU the inside scoop on how hiring works. So go to PopUpCareerChat.com to register for my next guest session with Mark Polansky of Outcome Solutions (formerly of Korn Ferry for 25 years). We will be discussing how to use your IT knowledge to land a C-level role in any profession (CMO, CFO, COO, etc…). Tech knowledge isn’t just for CIOs, CTOs, CISOs, or CDOs anymore.
