The year 2018 is barely underway and, already, digital trust initiatives have captured headlines. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg has said his platform will de-prioritize third-party publisher content to keep users focused on more “meaningful” posts from family and friends. Google has led off the new year by blocking websites that mask their country of origin from showing up on Google News. And the European Union’s upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will affect every organization around the world that handles personal data for EU residents. The regulations will also, no doubt, inform data protection laws and corporate trust-building strategies elsewhere.  By Bhaskar ChakravortiAjay BhallaRavi Shankar Chaturvedi

In recent years I have read 3213 blogs on “How to Get the Job!”  They include:  "Five Secrets Interviewers Never Reveal," "Five Secrets Your Resume Reveals," "Five Methods to Instant Hiring" and "Five Reasons Interviewers Hate You."  Perhaps you've seen those blogs.  Few, if any, of these well-meaning pieces match my experiences in the process of hiring.  The "five tips" articles may be true in the halls of business schools, textbooks and HR manuals but that's not how a person is chosen for a job.  I have hired and witnessed the hiring of thousands of people at private and public companies.  I have hired at 100-year-old companies and at start-ups.  I've hired people who earn much more or much less than I did.

Have you ever wondered where your customers drink their coffee? If you haven't, perhaps you should. After all, if I say Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts, you will immediately get a vision in your head about their customers: what they look like, what's important to them, what their values are, and perhaps even their overall belief system. That's because both brands have done a masterful job of defining exactly who their products are for. One could argue that they aren't competitors at all and that the only thing they have in common is that they sell coffee, stuff to go with it, and a place to buy it.  By Ed Faruolo, Founder of VitaLincs and ANA Faculty
