    He wants to do something new, maybe a little bit righteous. She sees herself leading a nonprofit or creating a medical device that saves lives in the remotest parts of the world. However, the search process has changed radically from the last time they looked for a job. 
    
    Like many job seekers, they’ve done a lot and can do a lot. But, recruiters can’t see past old job titles to recognize how a candidate can contribute to the work force in new ways. And worse, the candidate feels tongue-tied for the first time in their career. In The Art of Finding the Job You Love, Cara Heilmann, CEO of Ready Reset Go®, offers a fresh, safe, and unconventional way to help job seekers speak their talents and passion to make a difference through their work. She connects the worlds of comedy and recruiting with a look behind the curtain to share what hiring managers are really looking for and reveals why the more successful people are, the more they wing interview prep—and how that can work against them. Readers learn how to:
    Get clear on the targeted job to make everything easier
    Create (at least) five riveting career stories that must be in every job seeker’s toolbox
    Understand how to connect with chemistry during the interview process—even for the most introverted introvert
    Make a lasting positive impression that sticks well after the interview 
    
    The Art of Finding the Job You Love helps job seekers craft compelling career stories and communicate them in a way that leaves hiring managers wanting more and job seekers with the opportunity to make a difference in the world through a career they love!

    Our lives are becoming more and more digital everyday. This is true for money as much as anything else. 
    In 2017, cryptocurrencies have moved from something a small-dedicated group of people paid attention to into a much larger public view. As with any new society changing technological advance there are investment opportunities that can and will make a fortune. There are also even more ways to lose any money invested just as in “.com” boom of the late 1990s. 
    Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve said “[Virtual Currencies] may hold long-term promise, particularly if the innovations promote a faster, more secure and more efficient payment system.” While Warren Buffett, CEO, Berkshire Hathaway said “Stay away from it. It’s a mirage, basically.” Whose right? Actually, both. 
    There will be dominant winners like Amazon, Facebook and Google in the internet space in the cryptocurrency market. There will also be many more eToys, Pets.com and webVan’s – companies that raised hundreds of millions of dollars during the late 1990s and went bust within a few years. 
    This book provides a broad view of the cryptocurrency market that includes Bitcoin and goes far beyond it. What most people don’t realize is there are three sectors in the cryptocurrency market today.  The three sectors are 1) cryptocurrency as currency; 2) platforms that enable software developers to build app like functionality in purpose built cryptocurrencies; 3) purpose built cryptocurrencies meant to better address the needs of business or consumer use cases better then traditional currencies do today. 
    This book provides the history, vocabulary, and essential information you need to understand the 30+ leading cryptocurrencies today. In addition, the investment strategies that the smartest investors in the world use are described and how they can be applied to the cryptocurrency market today. 
    In other words, massive opportunities and massive risks exist in investing in cryptocurrencies. Read and tread carefully. Ensure you and yours invest wisely. Remember the only constant in the world is change.
