Want to be irresistible to hiring managers? Avoid these 6 resume mistakes at all costs

Never underestimate the power of basic skills such as MS Office, Excel and communication skills. (Things to leave out: Leadership, time-management, project scheduling, etc.) Hiring managers receive piles and piles of jargon-filled resumes that it’s difficult for them to assume what skills you do or don’t have. Play it safe and include even the most basic soft skills, especially the ones that are listed under the “minimum requirements” section of the job listing.

Biden hires over a dozen senior advisors from Obama administration for 2020 campaign: Sources

Former Vice President Joe Biden and his team have hired over a dozen senior advisors from President Barack Obama’s administration for his upcoming 2020 campaign for president, CNBC has learned.

Biden hires over a dozen senior advisors from Obama administration for 2020 campaign: Sources

Former Vice President Joe Biden and his team have hired over a dozen senior advisors from President Barack Obama’s administration for his upcoming 2020 campaign for president, CNBC has learned.

Many of these people didn’t work within Biden’s office throughout Obama’s tenure as president, but they have extensive campaign experience ranging from political consulting to communications, according to sources with direct knowledge of the matter.

Since their time in the Obama White House, some of these aides have gone on to work on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and later helped Democrats retake the U.S. House of Representatives during the 2018 congressional midterm elections, these people said.

Numerous former Obama White House advisors who have been brought on to work with Biden’s team, have yet to hear where the campaign will be headquartered. But they expect it will be either in Delaware or Pennsylvania. Biden was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania and as a Senator, represented the First State for over three decades.

Those who described the recent hirings declined to be named in this story because they did not want to get ahead of the upcoming announcement.

NBC News reported on Friday that the former lawmaker is set to announce his much anticipated 2020 presidential run next week. Biden, according to people with direct knowledge of the matter, is likely to roll out his campaign video in the coming days.

A spokesman for Biden declined to comment.

At a recent press gaggle with reporters, the former Vice President touted his connection to Obama and their legacy.

“I’m an Obama-Biden Democrat, man, and I’m proud of it,” he said at the time.

Since at least March, Biden and his team have been discussing potential economic policies for a third White House campaign, including an infrastructure reform plan, cutting taxes for the middle class and bettering income inequality, CNBC first reported.

An emphasis on infrastructure would give Biden an opportunity to directly challenge Donald Trump on a key aspect of the president’s “Make America Great Again” agenda. Trump ran on improving the nation’s roads, bridges and tunnels, but those policies have yet to take shape as the administration’s $1 trillion infrastructure plan failed to gain traction.

Top execs at American weed retailer MedMen quit amid ex-CFO’s claims of financial duress

Top execs at American weed retailer MedMen quit amid ex-CFO's claims of financial duress

The chief operating officer and general counsel of MedMen Enterprises have both resigned amid a broader employee shakeup at the American marijuana retailer.

Chief Operating Officer Ben Cook and General Counsel Lisa Sergi Trager — who also served on the company’s board — have quit, a source familiar with the matter tells CNBC. Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications Daniel Yi has also resigned.

Some members of the company’s design and technology teams were also let go as the company tries to makes itself more efficient under CEO Adam Bierman.

Cook, Trager and Yi did not immediately respond to CNBC’s requests for comment. MedMen confirmed the resignations of Cook and Trager later Friday morning in a press release.

“We appreciate the contributions of all current and former MedMen team members as we work to build the world’s leading cannabis company, and I have the utmost confidence in the management team. Their expertise, skill set and experience sets the standard of excellence for the industry,” Bierman said in the release.

Cook, a global supply chain executive with 15 years of experience in retail and consumer brands management, was hired at MedMen in October following tenures at Sam’s Club, Target and Apple. Trager, an alum of both UCLA Law and global consulting firm Deloitte, helped MedMen navigate its various business transactions.

Yi joined MedMen in 2016 following roles at Southern California Edison and the Port of Long Beach. The company also announced on Friday the appointment of Ryan Lissack as chief technology officer.

The latest employment shuffle comes amid concerns of overspending and an unhealthy work environment at the Culver City, California-based company. Those worries were recently voiced by the company’s former chief financial officer, James Parker, who on Jan. 29 filed a lawsuit against MedMen for wrongful dismissal.

In the suit, the ex-CFO detailed what he viewed as a work environment “replete with racial, homophobic and misogynistic epithets and slurs, drug and alcohol abuse, personal humiliation occasioned by the words and deeds of the CEO and President of the company [and] profligate spending by both the CEO and President.”

MedMen, in the middle of litigation, denies those allegations and says the suit is unfounded. Michael Kramer replaced Parker as CFO.

As one of the preeminent multistate cannabis companies in the United States, MedMen has recently drawn the eyes of customers and Wall Street alike.

The company owns and operates 19 facilities ranging from cultivation to retail in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada and New York, according to its website. It employs more than 1,000 people, has plans to expand into other U.S. states and Canada, and recently posted sales of $29.9 million in the second quarter.

The public company trades on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker MMEN, though the exchange was closed on Friday for the Good Friday holiday. Many stock exchanges refuse to list companies with U.S.-based marijuana operations because of the federal outlaw.

SEC, Tesla CEO Elon Musk seek one-week delay to resolve contempt motion

Tesla CEO Elon Musk and the Securities and Exchange Commission have asked for a one-week delay to resolve their contempt of court dispute, the parties announced Thursday in a joint submission to a federal judge.

“While we have not reached an agreement, counsel for the SEC, Mr. Musk, and counsel for Tesla met and conferred for over an hour by telephone earlier this week and are continuing to discuss potential resolution. Because our discussions are ongoing, we respectfully request to provide the Court with another joint submission on or before April 25, 2019, indicating whether we have reached an agreement in principle,” the submission says.

On April 4, a federal judge gave Musk and the SEC two weeks to work out their differences, punting a request from the agency to hold him in contempt of court for allegedly violating an October securities fraud settlement. U.S. Judge Alison Nathan said she had “serious concerns that no matter what I decide here, this issue won’t be resolved.” Nathan ordered both parties to “take a deep breath, put on your reasonableness pants” and work out a solution.

Now the parties are asking for one more week to figure it out.

The dispute stems from tweets Musk made in February that contained Tesla production forecasts. At first, Musk wrote to his millions of Twitter followers that the electric vehicle-maker would build around 500,000 cars in 2019. He followed up by tweeting that he meant to say that Tesla would reach a peak annualized production rate of 500,000, but still expected to make only about 400,000 cars this year.

The initial tweet was enough to convince the SEC to charge Musk with contempt for violating an October agreement. That agreement came about as a result of Musk’s tweet last year saying that he had “funding secured” to take Tesla private at $420 per share. Musk and Tesla each paid $20 million fines as part of that settlement.

Former SEC prosecutor Elliot Lutzker told CNBC earlier this month that he does not expect the SEC to try and remove Musk from his CEO role, but believes the settlement will involve a fine larger than $20 million.

These 15 new books will help you live a happier, wealthier and more successful life

It’s never too late to start developing a new (and improved) perspective on life — and what better way to accomplish that than by reading books?

Luckily, 2019 has already brought in a handful of new titles that you probably haven’t heard of. Below are 15 highly-praised books that have the ability to change the way we view our lives and the world we live in.

1. “Team Human”

By Douglas Rushkoff

“Team Human” gives plenty of insight into why being “fully human” is a team sport, rather than an individual one. In what the Washington Post calls “a manifesto for connecting personally in a tech-dominated world,” media theorist Douglas Rushkoff takes a look at how technology trends today have flipped society on its back — and why it’s time to rally together and reforge social bonds with positivity.

2. “Company of One: Why Staying Small Is the Next Big Thing for Business”

By Paul Jarvis

Freelance designer Paul Jarvis is best known for his creative work with big companies like Yahoo, Microsoft and Mercedes-Benz. In “Company of One,” he gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at how he makes a six-figure income working for himself out of his small home on an island off of Vancouver. With no plans to expand the business beyond himself, Jarvis explains how leaving a high-pressure corporate world led him to a happier, more successful and productive life.

3. “The Prosperity Paradox: How Innovation Can Lift Nations Out of Poverty”

By Clayton M. Christensen, Efosa Ojomo and Karen Dillon

It’s time to get serious about making the world a better place for future generations. More than 20 nations have received billions of dollars in support and yet are poorer today. Clayton M. Christensen, the best-selling author of classics like “How to Measure Your Life” and “The Innovator’s Dilemma,” along with co-authors Efosa Ojomo and Karen Dillon deliver a groundbreaking strategy on how to end the cycle of global poverty for good.

4. “Zucked”

By Roger McNamee

Roger McNamee, a venture capitalist and former mentor to Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, recounts and reflects on the conversations, events and realizations that led up to the catastrophic failure of the world’s largest social network. “Zucked” is a compelling exploration of how moments of political culture and crisis can affect a business.

5. “Digital Minimalism”

By Cal Newport

There’s nothing cooler than a digital minimalist — they’re happier, healthier, less distracted and a lot nicer to be around (nobody likes talking to a person who checks their phone every five minutes). Already a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly and USA Today best-seller, “Digital Minimalism” offers insight into how to achieve focus in a world that’s overwhelmed with digital clamor.

6. “Wise Guy: Lessons From a Life”

By Guy Kawasaki

Guy Kawasaki, a Silicon Valley icon, serial author and chief evangelist of Canva, was part of the original Macintosh team back in the early 1980s. His latest work is a memoir-esque collection of stories from his life journey. Get smarter and gain wisdom about everything from parenting to work to moral values. You’ll also find a handful of interesting vignettes about Kawasaki’s experience working at Apple under Steve Jobs. “In many ways, I am who I am and where I am because of Steve Jobs and Apple,” he says.

7. “How to Be a Capitalist Without Any Capital”

By Nathan Latka

The host of the Top Entrepreneurs podcast started a software company at age 19 — with just $119 in his bank account. Five years later, it got a valuation of $10.5 million. In “How to Be a Capitalist Without Any Capital,” Nathan Latka, now 29, offers advice on how to retire at 29 by doing just four things:

Focusing on one skill Focusing on one goal Being unique Appealing to the masses

8. “The Passion Paradox: A Guide to Going All In, Finding Success, and Discovering the Benefits of an Unbalanced Life”

By Brad Stulberg and Steve Magness

“Follow your passion” is the advice we hear all the time. But is it really ever that simple? Brad Stulberg and Steve Magness, co-authors of the best-selling book “Peak Performance,” dig into scientific case studies to examine the “passion vs. balance” debate. You’ll learn how to cultivate and sustain your passion while avoiding common pitfalls like endless seeking, suffering and burnout.

Why you shouldn't hate on the millennial that wears headphones at work

In the era of open-office floor plans designed to increase collaboration at the expense of privacy, more workers are finding a new space for isolation — headphones.

Such is the case with Christopher Reichert, android software developer at OfferUp, a company that has fully adapted the open-concept workspace. “I listen to music on my headphones because it helps me drown out noise and distractions in the office,” said Reichert.

“While I like working in an open-office environment because it make spontaneous collaboration easier, more distractions can happen both because of noise and because it’s easier for people to start conversations and pull you away from what you’re trying to focus on,” he said.

Experts say that contrary to concerns about fostering a team environment, listening to music at work may make workers more productive.

A study conducted by the staffing firm Accountemps, a subsidiary of global human resources firm Robert Half, found that an increasing number of professionals like listening to music at work and are actually more productive when they do so. The company polled more than 1,000 workers in an office environment and found that 85% like listening to music. In particular, the study found that 71% of professionals say they feel more productive when listening to music.

JP Morgan and Bank of America posted record profits, but investors worry it's downhill from here

The two biggest U.S. banks each just posted record first-quarter profit, the result of years of work building coast-to-coast franchises that have attracted billions in customer deposits.

On Friday, J.P. Morgan Chase said it made $9.2 billion in the first three months of the year. Bank of America said Tuesday that it generated $7.3 billion.

But investors’ darkest fear about the industry – that if the Federal Reserve really is done raising rates for the foreseeable future, banks’ main profit-making engine will sputter – is becoming apparent.

Bank of America just posted more quarterly profit than at any time in its history this week, but analyst Matthew O’Connor was worried about what next year looks like. The bank’s CFO warned that growth in net interest income would slow by half to 3 percent this year, below some analysts’ estimates.

Here’s how many Google interviews it takes to hire a Googler

Year after year, Google has been ranked as one of the top companies to work for, so it’s no surprise that the tech giant receives roughly three million applications per year. With an acceptance rate of 0.2%, you’d have a better chance of getting into Harvard. Google’s careers page makes the process seem quite simple: “Become a Googler in three steps,” it advertises.

Year after year, Google has been ranked as one of the top companies to work for, so it’s no surprise that the tech giant receives roughly three million applications per year. With an acceptance rate of 0.2%, you’d have a better chance of getting into Harvard.

Google’s careers page makes the process seem quite simple: “Become a Googler in three steps,” it advertises. “Apply. Interview. Decide.”

Below those headings, the veil begins to lift: “We interview differently.”

Nowadays interviewees won’t come across certain oddities like brain teasers, but Google remains an outlier when it comes to how precise and methodical its interviewing process is.

Comparably: The 10 highest-paying entry-level jobs in tech

The U.S. tech industry is currently adding new jobs at almost 400% the rate of other fields, and it pays workers about twice as much too, according to jobs site Comparably.

That high pay isn’t just limited to a handful of senior roles or hardcore technical positions. New college graduates and career changers can earn into the six figures from their first day in the office in many of tech’s entry-level positions.

To find the roles that paid workers top dollar from the outset, Comparably analyzed more than 8,000 tech workers’ salary records to find the ones that led to the biggest paychecks during the first three years of an employee’s career. The results are good news for those who want to work in tech without learning how to code. While several of the 10 highest-paying gigs rely on strong computer science or programming skills, quite a few call for a knowledge of business or marketing.

No matter the role, wise tech workers would head to San Francisco or Seattle to start their careers. These two locations paid the most for each of the following 10 positions, beating out other top cities like Los Angeles, New York City, Boston, Chicago and Austin, Comparably found.
