Christmas Time – What Did You Ask For?

Last year’s commercial also had a few “Walking Dead” zombies in the episode, however this year it will be the main focus instead of other shows and clips that were more popular last year. Luckily for the indie show on the AMC channel, they will still get “Walking Dead” advertisement in the Superbowl but they won’t have to shell out the high cost of over million for the 30 second time slot.

That’s 39,300 people. With great previous employment. Looking for a new technical position. This is not to mention those people still employed and looking to see what opportunities are out there.

Here’s where things get a little confusing. While it’s the Giants team ownership that would technically owe the tax money, the team has a lease agreement with the state of New Jersey. According to this agreement, New jersey taxpayers, not Giants ownership, will end up paying out of pocket. A hearing on this case is expected to take place in March.

Recently, Norman Reedus of “Walking Dead” fame shared a few pictures on Twitter from a Superbowl ad that the show is shooting. On Jan. 11 business insider shares that while the ad being shot is for the Superbowl, it is actually the newest installment for Time Warners’ “Enjoy Better” ad that will be featured during the Superbowl.

By donating money to the non-profit P.A. Arts through Omaze, an L.A. company that works to support social causes, someone will win a trip to the Walt disney Studios for a special tour.

Judging by the storm of scathing comments on the website of Le Monde, France’s leading newspaper who published the results of the UBS report, the french hardly agree with the study and perhaps for good reason. France’s legal work week lasts 35 hours. UBS used this figure, plus the number of paid vacation days and paid holidays to calculate a city’s annual work volume.

First of all, cool your jets a bit. Have you been there for over a year? If not, don’t even think about a raise or a promotion. Is your company in transition? You may feel like you’re ready to take your career to the next level, but is your company ready? Are they in the midst of a merger or restructure? Finally, are you exceeding expectations or just meeting them? You may be the best employee on your team, but if everyone, including yourself, is below target, then don’t expect to be promoted. You’ve got 40-50 years to climb the corporate ladder; so don’t expect to make your first leap within 18 months. Hopefully you have joined a company that is providing you great training, which is more valuable than any pay or job title in the first 3 years of your career.
