"This is a celebration of students who are entering the workforce or post-secondary training with a plan. They’ve chosen to maximize their high school opportunities for career training and industry certifications, with an eye on becoming successful and financially secure much earlier in life."

The students met with representatives from their future places of employment and both signed letters outlining what they would do before and during employment, as well as what training and compensatory benefits the employer would provide, and an estimate of the position's overall value.

Beaton said the idea for the recognition ceremony was rooted in a constant battle to show the importance of this kind of training.

The Radical #Plan to Save the #Planet by #Working Less


source: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/bj9yjq/the-radical-plan-to-save-the-planet-by-working-less
Right now, our work, play, and general quality of #life is dictated through the terms of consumption. Working less, making less money, and reducing material use likely will negatively impact most people's quality of life unless society comes in to meet those needs.

Practically, this would require an increase in free public services; people won’t have to make as much #money if they don’t have to spend on #healthcare, #housing, #education, and #transportation.

Fake LinkedIn Profiles Are Impossible to Detect



We created a fake profile and connected it to a real company. Sadly, it isn’t hard. LinkedIn doesn’t ask for any proof or confirmation of anything. Instead, LinkedIn runs on a sort of honor system.

I supervised a man who in a small QC lab. When I became his supervisor I told him he had to stay until 3pm (instead of leaving at 2:30 or so). He replied that he wouldn't come in early but start at 7am (he said he was coming in at 6:30 but would come in 6:45 or later) and I said sure. I caught him falsifying data and since he didn't know I had photocopied his book he tried to obliterate and change. I took it to management and they minimized it - maybe giving him a warning. I denied a 2 week LOA attached to his 3 week vacation during our swamped busy time (harvest). People who would be subbing for him are farmers. I checked labour laws and tried to make a decision that was fair to all the techs. He filed a harassment claim against me to corporate. Some people just have no idea.

Ask HN: I want to build a company. How can I work towards that while employed?


I will start a job as a software dev and with the job offer comes a bunch of contract clauses that basically lets the company own all IP while employed. I am from a third world country, so I won't be able alter the contract clauses. With these restrictions in place, what can I do while employed to have a better chance of succeeding when I do start a company?

My plan :
  • continue learning while on the job
  • prepare for interviews so that I can apply to companies that are friendly to side projects (stripe, gitlab, github and a bunch of other such companies. Please mention companies that are ok with remote workers and are side project friendly, even startups paying $30,000 work for me)
  • build side projects in my free time that demonstrate my skills
  • maybe participate in Pioneer.app tournaments so I can network
  • basically work on stuf
