Posted by on Mar 11, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

When you have had the pleasure of creating a new invention from the ground up, this new addition to the market is just like your child. You pamper it, give it attention, and get the opportunity to watch it grow and become a successful product in the market place. Unfortunately, just like children without enough attention, inventions that are not nurtured early on will not grow to their full potential. There are three ways you can ensure that as an inventor, you give your little bundle of creativity a good start. Work with a Product Design Firm You can spend countless hours working on prototypes and those initial product designs, but even with all of your time and attention your end result may not be as perfect and complete as it should be. With any new invention it is a good idea to work with a product design firm when it comes to getting the item market ready. These professionals spend years working with stores, suppliers, and customers. They research various market trends and consumer buying habits. All of this specialized knowledge will take your product from ordinary to extraordinary, boasting the features that the consumer will be looking to find. Take Full Advantage of Trade Show Exhibits With so much going on during product design and startup, it can be hard to imagine taking time out to visit trade shows and exhibits. However, this is a step that will make it easier on you as the primary investor in your business venture. Trade shows are not just the perfect place to introduce a product to prospective suppliers, but a place to gain substantial investments from parties interested in taking your product to a new level. Become a Freelance Marketing Specialist If there is one thing important when it comes to giving your new invention a healthy start, it is how you market your product. You can rely heavily on the marketing services for new inventors, but it is even better if you can learn to market on your own as well. After all, no one will be a bigger supporter of your product than you. Get to know the product niche you are entering. Check out the best marketing practices for new products. Learn how to use the Internet as a successful sales venue. When you put a lot of effort into the initial phases of a new product invention, you can rest assured that you have given your new idea a fighting chance to get noticed by consumers.

What You Need To Know About A Career Choices In IT Support

Posted by on Mar 5, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

When you begin looking for a position in IT support, you may become discouraged with the vast number of entry level positions that are listed. This is especially true if you have an advanced degree in the field. In order to find the right job for you that matches your experience and education, you’ll need to know what your choices are.  Here are a few choices in the IT support field you should consider. Help Desk and Tier One Manager The help desk and tier one support positions are the most common because they are entry level. As a manager in this path, you will be dealing with employees that have little to no advanced experience in IT support. Calls will primarily be related to basic issues such as the Internet being unresponsive or not connecting, password retrieval, or virus related issues. As a manager you will handle escalated calls that do not go to the next tier of support, but need specific upper level consideration. For example, customers who don’t understand the current support representative or who have had this issues so often, they are considering cancelling their account. Networking Support Networking support deals directly with system networking between businesses, locations, and within a corporation. You may also find positions in networking support with cable and Internet provider companies. As a networking support manager you will handle escalated issues for networking connection problems such as computer not connecting to wireless services or file transfer protocol issues. This may also deal with cloud support if your company is making a hardware to cloud transition. Support Manager An IT support manager serves several roles within the IT department. As a support manager you would handle calls to retain customers who are unhappy with services. You may also be the one who makes final decisions on refunds related to support, sending a repair truck or crew, or sending the IT problem to a higher tier. If you are a support manager over several tiers of support then you will also need to decide what issues are handled by the tiers, when those issues need to be escalated, and when to contact a floor manager or yourself if the problems escalate. These are just three of the main non-entry level positions that are available to you in the IT field. If you are interested in advancing your career further, contact your local job placement service. They can take your resume, review your experience and education, and help you decide on the right option for your career path. You might also consider contacting a local IT support service like Logical Developments Consulting Services for more...
