Links around the watercooler:

  • Since we are hiring top talent, we’re really digging this new startup called ResumUp. They allow you to create a resume profile, and establish goals that will help you on your career. It looks like a great resource for folks looking to create a career strategy.
  • On a related note, if you’re thinking about redesigning your portfolio, Web Designer Depot posted a great article with simple tips to improve your online portfolio.
  • We love, love, love Game of Thrones here at Four Kitchens. If there is one thing we love more is good design (and maybe beer). A top designer from Nike recently rebranded Game of Thrones (you know, for funzies), and this is the result.
  • Lastly, Wolfram Alpha recently launched a Facebook Analyzer tool that lets you get some data about your Facebook profile. Just go to Wolfram Alpha and search for Facebook Report. (The site will ask you to connect to Facebook.)
