I am writing from the perspective of having been recently let go from my day job. For over 16 years, I worked in Chicago’s Loop as a Graphics Specialist for a large management consulting firm. I had survived several rounds of job cuts over the last several years, but they finally caught up with me in January. I would describe my basic reaction as shocked, but not at all surprised.
Wait a minute, there’s more. The same testing was conducted six months later. Guess what? The retention of the material was much higher for the group trained by their own boss.
However, companies that don’t rely on IT also face the same risks. IT blueseedconsulting.com firms offer their services to companies like these who don’t have a proper plan in place. By advising them on proper ways to handle their IT, how to make it better and what to do in case they do lose all their data.

Plot, suspense, an appealing setting, and above all, engaging characters. An opportunity to learn about an occupation is also a plus. Margaret Maron’s series set in North Carolina is a good example-the main character is a judge, and the reader learns a lot about the challenges of her profession.
