    #8 Let me know when you do, @Jim Murray. I'll help push it.

    You made me think of a few features to add to my email system. How about One-Click subscriptions using Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook credentials, and subscribe links that can be added to blog posts, email signatures, or anywhere.

    I'll get on that after I finish coding the email drip-type campaigns.

    @Jill Hendrickson Thank you for writing this. I do so feel for you. When I had ad. agency I had 68 staff 54 of them women ( my most competent and loyal employees! ) I had a strict policy regarding sexism and intimidation. On two occasions I had cause to fire two art directors for flouting those rules. What upset me was the fact that the women who were harassed didn't come forward thinking that I would take the side of her more senior colleagues. I found out by being told of those slimy bastards behaviour. Articles like yours should prolificate and more women should speak out. Thank you for sharing what is a critical issue in today's workplace.

He helped identify what wasn't working and made sure I spent my time effectively by getting sales appointments and ensuring I was always working towards the sale.

To wit: the article I wrote below on Medium has received about 5,000 reads since I posted in on LI as an update -- many more reads than the origin post on Medium. Thus, try cross-posting your beBee content to LI as an update to spread the buzz and maximize engagement. THOUGHTS?

    Hi John, Thanks for your question. I am not sure about an online MBA course, but one thing that I can tell you about a campus course is that you are under a lot more pressure (which is a good thing) and accountability is high when it comes to high-priority submissions and teamwork. Class participation is also another advantage when it comes to campus MBA. However, if you have a full time job or are pursuing an online MBA from a reputed and affiliated institute, that should be okay, too as they must have designed the course to bring maximum learning to participants.

    I agree with you on all aspects here in this buzz. I myself have done an MBA in Finance because the subject itself attracted me more than anything else. This study has taught me life skills and have helped me to expand my horizons. I became a voracious reader as we have to prepare for case studies and vivas on several subjects.

    #2 True, it does depend on the institute you are getting the degree from, as well. Most of the institutions are rated on the basis is placements provided by them. At the end of the day it boils down to the choice of: how much one is willing to pay vs. how much they trust their employability.

    My five cents: What I got from my MBA was connections, knowledge on the business jargons (for example, if someone mention to me "Porter 5 forces" I know what he/she means) and lastly the capability to read a book per week. If you asked me was it worth ? Probably yes but it cost me too much 200K USD for 2 years @Proma Nautiyal
