    @Javier beBee. Sir. Consider reaching out to the following organization http://www.remoteyear.com, I sense there are some great opportunities for the domain of affinity networking and the beBee framework (aaS) with the Remote Year Service. I'm actually thinking about Remote Year right now, just trying to figure out how to sponsor/finance it.

    Is "beBee in the workplace" possible? What does it mean? What is required? Intra-beBee? Maybe we can start talking about something like that here. For example, what would it mean for the organization you work for to adopt the beBee framework for corporate social affinity networking or intra affinity networking(?????????).

    #1 THank you, Jared. I'm so glad to hear it.

    My favorite parts, Lynda:

    "Focus on what fits. Don't tailor yourself to fit jobs.
    ...be certain that your resume represents who you are and what you do.
    ...When reviewing potential positions to apply for, find openings for which your value proposition will resonate with the employer.
    In other words, let your resume showcase your authentic self."

    Oh so true. I say this from experience. I tailored and was "just looking for a job". No success. Surprise!? Nope.
    Follow this great advice instead.
