How to Get Your Boss's Job (And Get Your Boss To Help)

Posted by administrator | 15 Oct, 2014

nebenjob binäre optionen Ready to move up? Desire to move on?

Unless you (or your company) create a new position just for you, or you decide to get a better job outside your current company, chances are that you won't get promoted until your boss gets promoted (or moves on). Even then, there's no guarantee that you'll step into your boss's job.

There are two things that you can do to really make yourself promotable in your current job:

1) Learn Your Boss's Job

2) Train Your Replacement

Learn Your Boss's Job

This means learn everything that your boss does, not just what you think they do, but every minute little detail.

Find out what they really do each day. What is their schedule? What are their daily challenges are (you might be surprised at what you don't know) and how they deal with them. Who are their information and action resources?

How do you do this?

Just ask.

Let your boss know that you're ready to advance and want to know how they do the work that they do.

The point of this is not to become a threat to your boss but to provide them with the opportunity to move up the corporate ladder themselves. Learn enough that you can step up to fill their shoes once they move on.

Train Your Replacement

The surest way to career stagnation is to be very good at your job and not have anyone available to replace you.

Now, that can mean job security if you really love what you do, but if what you really want to do is what they're doing over in Marketing? Then it can mean misery.

So, while you're learning you're boss's job, start grooming the person who will replace you. Share your secrets, your tricks of the trade. Pass on every bit of information you can to one or two people who you feel can step into your shoes once you move on.

Show your boss and your company that you're more than prepared for a new position and a better salary. Make it easy for your company to promote you. Give them a reason -- give them a couple of reasons -- to make you the boss.

What Is A PDF And How Does It Work?

Posted by administrator | 19 Feb, 2014

opzioni digitali il migliore What Is A PDF And How Does It Work?
by Wendy Tucker, Human Resources

here We have been asked many times here at what exactly is a PDF file and why we request print ready PDF’s for printing.  Let me take a moment and try and explain the key points and how they work with printing… A PDF file stands for source Portable Document Format.  It was invented by Adobe® Systems over 20 years ago, and has consistently been updated and perfected to work with many different electronic document exchanges.

tiger trader opzioni binarie When you convert a document to a PDF formatted file,  it will look just like it does after its been printed at, regardless of what kind of computer or printer someone is using and regardless of what software package was originally used to create it.  Also, although they contain the complete formatting of the original document, including fonts and images, PDF files are highly compressed, allowing complex information to be downloaded efficiently.

There are many advantages to converting files to a PDF, below are a few…

go to site Reliability – When using PDF files, you don’t have to worry about if who you are sending to has the same software that you used to create the original because the files are compressed and the fonts, images, full color graphics, grids and layouts are embedded within the document. Trusted – All types of businesses and government agencies all over the world use PDF’s as a standard for exchanging documents more securely, and it is largely used in the Printing Industry as well as a trusted and reliable format for printing documents from a wide range of original documents.

To convert a file to a PDF format, you will first need to install a PDF print driver.  You can do this from the Adobe® site, and download a free trial to Adobe® Acrobat, or there are several free downloads available online, a few that have been used are CNet and CutePDF.

Now that you have the PDF print driver installed on your computer, you are all set to start sending your document PDF’s to to be printed to your specifications!

What is Consecutive Numbering?

Posted by administrator | 24 Jan, 2014

What is Consecutive Numbering?
by Carl Lane, Webmaster

Consecutive or sequential numbering refers to the printing of numbers in sequential order on sets of forms or other printed pieces. Each form or piece gets a unique number and is printed in either ascending or descending numerical order. At we have found that sequential numbering is a very popular option but we have also found that not everyone knows the different types of numbering.

Sequential numbers can be printed almost anywhere on a sheet or form and can be positioned horizontally or vertically. Numbers can also be repeated in another position on the form under certain conditions.  Many carbonless forms such as invoices and purchase orders may require consecutive/sequential numbering.  Numbers printed in sequential order allow the form to be controlled by the end user. e.g. 00001, 00002, 00003, etc.

 When developing your artwork, consider adding a box to your artwork for numbering, making it easier for your customers or employees to find and reference a specific job or transaction. At our standard number size is 3/16” tall and each digit is stepped at 5/32 of an inch. You may also differentiate your number by color. Most printers allow a choice of colors, typically black or red, to make your number stand out. You may start your sequencing at any point you like, or pick up where you left off on your last print order.  If you are thinking of using sequential numbering on your carbonless forms, please give our printing experts at a call for helpful advice on how to best set up your artwork and submit your carbonless forms for print.

Consecutive Numbering is an inexpensive and effective way to maintain accurate records and improve organization. At, we can number a variety of sheet sizes and up to a 10 part carbonless set. Many printers have a special numbering machine which can accurately guarantee unique numbering in a precise location. Quality control procedures are in place to ensure numbering accuracy.

Crash Numbering

A numbering machine makes an impression of a number, that you can actually feel, on a multiple part carbonless form. The number may be printed in either red or black ink on the top sheet (part one) and is transferred as an image through the whole set by pressure, in the same way as writing on it. This is sometimes referred to as “crash” or “crush” numbering when numbering multi-part carbonless forms. Do be aware that the more parts there are in a carbonless set the result are not as crisp and clear the further from the top sheet the impression goes.

Digital Numbering

Forms are numbered at the digital press as they are being printed. The number is printed in black, or for an additional fee may be any color you choose, on each part because each part is being numbered separately before they are collated together. All parts do not have to be numbered when doing numbering at the digital press and the number location can change from part to part.

While both of these methods of numbering lead to the same result, your printer may choose one method over the other depending on many factors;  quantity to print, ink colors within the printed piece,  time factor and many other production related variables.  The print experts at offer helpful advice on how to best meet your particular needs. Highlights Proactive Benefits Of Direct Care, Challenges Critics

Posted by administrator | 7 Aug, 2013 published an article responding to critics who say that a subscription model doesn’t make sense for direct care. Naysayers suppose that patients stand to waste money if they don’t use the service, much like an unused gym membership. But physician and health care consultant Dr. Zubin Damania, who is working with online retailer Zappos (they’re considering offering a direct primary care clinic to Las Vegas-based employees), had this to say: “Would you use car insurance to get your oil changed or tires changed? I see primary care the same way.” Hmmm, sounds like an analogy we’ve been promoting for a while now.

Check out the complete article. We’re especially impressed with one of Qliance success stories. They provide direct care to a commercial fishing company operating off Alaskan coasts. The companies saved money by enrolling the fisherman in a direct care program, and have staved off side effects of high blood pressure in four cases. The risk of stroke is no small matter, and could be life-threatening in this intense and dangerous line of work. Another great example of the proactive benefits of direct care.

A side note to doctors concerned about implementing an Atlas MD-style subscription model: We encourage you to listen to our podcast, specifically episode 3 which covers running an in-house pharmacy. In certain cases, your ability to provide a wholesale medicine that would cost 800-900% more through a pharmacy can actually make it cost-prohibitive for patients NOT to join your practice. Even if they aren’t coming in every month for a visit, their “subscription” supports your ability to prescribe medications at a steep discount, to them, and other members of your community. That in and of itself is a tremendous value.

And a final thought on critics of a subscription model: We offer 24/7 real-time communication, at no additional charge. If we were lawyers, and charged for any time we even thought of a case, or spoke to you via phone, email or text, the charges would be astronomical. And it’s this open communication that can SAVE patients time, and prevent them from coming in unnecessarily (or visiting an ER), that makes the gym membership analogy pretty errant. Working out is physical; knowing whether your cut needs a butterfly bandage or stitches is an abstract. These things offer little comparison.

Make Your Website More Panda Friendly

Posted by administrator | 31 Jul, 2013

The recent Google Panda update has raised the bar not only for SEO experts but also for web designers. It's getting tougher and tougher to rank well and that means that you really have to pay attention to all designing and Google ranking factors. When we do this, search engines rewards us because we are rewarding our audience and providing them with the information and experience they are looking for. The following points will help you to make your website panda proof:-

1.Content is key:The Panda algorithm update emphasizes providing assurance only on websites that contain unique and useful content. This will help users better find content relevant to their search. If you provide web page content that is unique, relevant, high quality and preferably 1000+ words, your site will likely be rewarded with improved rankings and therefore, increased traffic.

2.Above the fold design: Narrowing your header images, removing header banner images and pushing more content onto the top of your site will help with Panda.

3.Web Page indexing: A website with more than 100 web pages and maximum pages indexed by Google would be considered as a Panda friendly website.

4.Page rank: Page rank is still one of the most important factors. PageRank is an independent measure of Google's perception of the quality/authority/credibility of an individual web page. It does not depend on any particular search phrase. Google conveniently reports this as a number from 0-10 (10 being the best).

5.Check your Domain registration: Domain registration for five years helps to enhance authority points. This is a small tip, but every little bit helps.

6.Webmaster tools: It enables webmasters to get a better idea of what Google "thinks" about their web sites, how the Google "spider" sees them, and what improvements could be made.

7.Social media proof: Google Panda takes social media trends seriously and content that is loved by social media sites like Twitter and Facebook gets better position in search engines.

8.Optimize for Fast Load Times: Avoid flash, single background images in the website. Google tends to favor sites that are snappy, quick, and fast. migliori opzioni binarie truffa About The Author
