Whether you're an experienced marketer or searching for your first job in the industry, there are plenty of opportunities across the country. Finding and successfully applying for them however can feel like a job in itself, particularly if you aren't yet fluent in Swedish or used to the working culture. The types of roles you'll find can be broadly divided into three categories. The first option is to work in in-house marketing PR for a company -- perhaps one of Sweden's tech or engineering giants, a small startup, or another industry you're interested in. Alternatively, you might work for a marketing or PR agency, meaning you’ll likely be working with a range of clients, and may have a more specific focus such as digital marketing, events, or branding, whereas in-house marketers will usually wear several of these hats.

Ending job title
If you were one of the many people impressed by the Sega Forever initiative, which aims to release several of the company's classic games to smartphones, and you decided to try out a title or two, you may have noticed a slight problem: the games don't exactly run well, even on high-end hardware. Which is a problem primarily because regular, non-official emulators can deliver much better performance, and have been able to do so for years.Meanwhile, Sega's own solution suffers from a slew of problems: visual stutters, out-of-sync audio, poor touchscreen controls, and input lag. But the bugs run deeper than that: it seems users who want an ad-free experience are having problems: ads are still present in the games even after purchase, and local saves also appear to be broken for some users.

If you're into … [Read more...] about Most Sega Forever titles are a buggy mess, here’s why

It would just make no sense to stop now unless they came to an agreement. Beyond that, they will continue until their eventual end. posted on 10 Feb 2013, 13:54 0 22. darkkjedii (Posts: 27091; Member since: 05 Feb 2011) Well said posted on 10 Feb 2013, 14:14 5 26. androiddownsouth (Posts: 598; Member since: 02 May 2012) They may be past the moment of no return, but that is a terrible place to be more often than … [Read more...] about Comments for : Tim Cook said ‘No’ to suing Samsung but Steve Jobs said ‘Yes’
By Jindrich Liska2012-01-01 16:30:35 UTC Jindrich Liska is founder and CEO of Jobmagic, a leading social recruiting platform which enables employers to hire candidates on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Jindrich has pioneered many social recruiting approaches which are now used worldwide by brands such as Disney, J.Crew and Compuware. The 2011 job market is ending on a positive note. With unemployment shrinking to a mere 8.6% — its lowest level since May 2008 — and a steadily growing economy, businesses are planning on hiring and recruiting even more as their confidence in customer demand builds.

Until Tony Soprano took viewers on a strange journey over the New Jersey Turnpike for the very first time in 1999, television title sequences were mostly straightforward affairs. There was an establishing shot: a barrel wave off the coast of Hawaii, or choppers carrying wounded vets over a mountain in Korea. Then a theme song swelled, an earworm that would echo in your brain like an advertising jingle: “Here’s the story, of a lovely lady…” Some names appeared alongside corresponding actors, who often turned to smile — or brood, depending on their character — in a weirdly stagey way. The audience was told the central premise in no uncertain terms. The nanny is named Fran. In the criminal justice system the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. The truth is “out there.” Then the cartoon family converged on the couch, and finally the show began. Television titles set the scene, offered some exposition, then got … [Read more...] about In the age of streaming TV, who needs title sequences?
