Social JobWorking Site offers Hints for Jobseekers Recommends Locking Down Your Social Networking Profile.

Austin, Texas (February 17, 2012) -- (pronounced Jah-Bo-Sah-Bee) ,the first locally focused “social jobworking” website, is launching a new program to educate job seekers on the proper way to position themselves on the web. The company recommends that candidates “lock down” their various social networking profiles to friends and family only.

The biggest mistake that a job seeker can make today is to leave their social profiles open to potential employers. They cannot control what their “friends” post and often times innocent photos can be misunderstood, costing the candidate a job.” Noted Carl Braun co-founder and CEO of parent company Cross-Post LLC. “With jobs being at a premium these days you simply cannot afford to make a mistake you'll likely never even know about. You just won't get the job.” He added. recommends the following:

1. Create a job profile summary on Its easy and free! Do NOT include your address, email or phone number or any other personal info. We'll insert a link where employers can learn more about you or send you a DM to request additional info and resume.
2. Lock down your Facebook page for friends and family only. You can do that in the privacy settings.
3. Direct Employers to your profile summary.
4. Keep your summary employment related. Here's a sample:
Hint: Avoid religious or political affiliations or any organization that may be considered controversial. Employers need not know your religious preference and specifying a political affiliation might work against you. Let employers judge you on your BFOQ (Bona fide Occupational Qualifications) and NOT your weekend activities.
5. Conduct a search for your name on "google" and see what shows up on the first or second page. if there is anything embarrassing do what you can to get it removed or consider pushing it off the first two pages by getting positive mentions on popular websites.
6. Use the blogging tools to write articles about your area of expertise. They will get you good PR on the web and employers will be impressed with your writing skills and subject knowledge.
7. Become a Talent Community Leader on in one of our many communities like Veterans, Green, or various Diversity focused Groups. If you don't see one in your area of interest, START ONE! We give you the free tools. Connect with your local newspaper through their talent community as well.

Forest Carbon Partners funding scheme wins support of FRA

News of the new Forest Carbon Partners forestry investment scheme from New Forests Inc. has won the support of FRA, which analyses various forms of forestry investment project.

Seattle, United States, February 17, 2012 -- News of the new Forest Carbon Partners forestry investment scheme from New Forests Inc. has won the support of Forestry Research Associates (FRA), which analyses various forms of forestry investment project.

Forest Carbon Partners is an investment vehicle that offers funding for carbon offsetting projects in California. The fund helps to manage these projects and deliver revenue to landowners.

Among the first projects it is involved with is a scheme to develop forestry carbon offsets over 11,000 acres in the West of the US. The scheme sees it partner with a Native American tribe and a family who own the forest in the area.

The project is intended to help finance a total of 100,000 acres of forestry carbon offset schemes, which will generate returns for land owners, as well as increasing natural habitats and absorbing large qualities of CO2.

FRA is a research and analysis consultancy that specialises in forestry investment projects. It supports investment projects in developing countries, as well as carbon offsetting schemes all over the world.

The Forest Carbon Partner is one such project, and its managing director, David Brand commented: “As the California carbon market comes online, New Forests believes that forest carbon projects will become a critical source of offset supply.

Forest Carbon Partners brings together a sophisticated understanding of both forestry and carbon markets to meet the demand for high-quality carbon credits that ensure important co-benefits for family forest landowners and the environment.”

FRA also supports schemes such as the renewable plantations run by Greenwood Management in Brazil and Canada. These projects help to reduce the reliance on natural forests by providing alternative non-native forests, which are managed in a sustainable way.

FRA’s Peter Collins, said, “We welcome the New Forests project as it will help to boost carbon sequestration in one of the world’s most high impact regions, in terms of CO2 emissions.”

IAPAM Reports that Botox Training Remains Popular

The IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums train physicians on how to safely, profitably and successfully add botox ®, hCG for weight loss, and other aesthetic modalities (lasers for skin rejuvenation, medical microdermabrasion and medical-grade chemical peels) to an existing medical practice. The IAPAM helps physicians enter this lucrative market by offering the industry’s best botox ® training and hCG training. To date, all of the 2011 and the January 2012 Aesthetic Medicine Symposium events have sold out.

Las Vegas, Nevada (February 17, 2012) -- Since 2006, the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium ( has offered physicians a competitive advantage through its comprehensive, hands-on, immersion into the field of aesthetic medicine and cosmetic injectables. The IAPAM’s ( Symposium with Botox Training, is the only program which gives physicians a hands-on opportunity to learn from two board-certified dermatologists, who are true experts of the skin and cosmetic injectables. In order to ensure physicians learn the best injection techniques, the botox ® training is done in a medical practice, not in a hotel room chair. In addition, the Symposium does not allow exhibitors, giving physicians more time for education.

Physicians who attend the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium can revisit their educational experience by using the IAPAM’s 19 comprehensive training DVDs. The 3 clinical DVDs offers focused instruction and demonstrations on Botulinum Toxin (Botox ®) Injection Techniques, Dermal Filler Injection Techniques, Chemical Peel Techniques, and Microdermabrasion Techniques. These DVDs cover three key anti-aging treatment areas:

1. Botulinum Toxin for Cosmetic Patients lecture.
2. Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers for Cosmetic Patients - live demonstration.
3. Chemical Peel and Microdermabrasion live demonstration of techniques.

Equally, Symposium attendees receive 16 Cosmetic Practice training DVDs. These resources allow physicians and their staff to re-immerse themselves in the IAPAM’s training, at their convenience.

The popularity of the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium is consistent with the demand by physicians for expert and accredited cosmetic injectables training. Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM has witnessed the tremendous growth of minimally-invasive modalities. “We are hearing from our members that minimally invasive procedures like botox ®, dermal fillers as well as microdermabrasion continue to grow in demand by patients, and we are seeing a correlating increase in attendance at our Symposium with botox ® training. Moreover, physicians are realizing they not only need to offer botox ® treatments to their patients, but also laser hair removal, IPL skin rejuvenation, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion, and organizations like the IAPAM educate physicians and their staff on how to package treatments for the most appealing and profitable outcomes.”

For additional information and to register for an upcoming Aesthetic Medicine Symposium (March 3-4, 2012), please contact the IAPAM at 1-800-219-5108 ext. 704, or visit
