It appears that the media is fascinated with negativity. From tragedies to twitter fights to the Mayan Apocalypse to the fiscal cliff, the year’s biggest news stories were undeniably bad news. Honestly, reading the fiscal cliff coverage, if you didn’t know any better you’d think that we were all literally going to fall off a cliff and die on January 1, 2013.
Every few months there’s another story that is blown way out of proportion. First Europe was definitely going to collapse, then the Middle East was about to fall apart. The media just loves scaring people.
Yes it’s true, there are a lot of bad apples out there and economic conditions are tough right now. But why not look on the bright side?
In the New Year, CompliancEX will bring you ideas on how to empower yourself in your career. Whether you want to get a new job or advance where you are, we will give you the tools to do so.
Of course, we will continue to offer the latest news and compliance and regulatory updates to keep you up to date.
But in addition to our news coverage, we would like to give you a better chance in the difficult job market we are facing.
