Twitter confirms what we’ve all been waiting for!

Twitter-character-limit-for-direct-message-increased

A couple of days ago, Twitter formally announced what rumour mills had been anticipating for a little while now: An extension to their 140 Character limit! Woot! Woot!

But before you get very excited, there are certain provisos to this grand announcement. The 140 character limit still stays, but the following are no longer part of that limit:  Twitter Handles while replying.  This is a big one, when you reply to a tweet, the handle of the original poster will not be counted toward the 140 character count. For me, this makes my tweet life a lot simpler. I dislike cutting words short, like using ‘b4 for before’ – I’m just old school that way.  Attachments: Basically, photos, videos, and quote tweets will also be exempt from the 140-Character count. Twitter will also allow you to re-tweet yourself by enabling the retweet button for your own tweets.

This update will roll out in the next few weeks, making your tweeting experience a lot more rewarding. There have been countless times, I’ve had to edit and re-edit my tweets in order for them to fit!

Interestingly, I had read a article a little while ago analysing the existing services being offered by Twitter and the author had made a few very interesting recommendations. Among other things, the author suggested Twitter do away with the @handles counting towards the character limit! Well, the writer got what they wished for! You can read the article here.

How does this change your twitter experience, comment below and let us know!

Jumpstarting Careers for Women

00-jumpstart-your-career-20-helpful-infographics-on-job-search

It can be a daunting experience to look for a new job. Even more if you have a break in your career. This is generally applicable to women who take a break in their career for various reasons. Getting your career back on track can get difficult. Not all companies take a break in career positively and it can influence their current hiring decisions. Today, however there are options for women looking to restart their career – or even change career verticals. Lets look at some of these options:

Springboard by Microsoft: Having two batches underway, Microsoft is soon starting the third wave of their Springboard program. This program offers an internship to selected women to jumpstart their careers. Microsoft has listed a minimum of a year’s break and a minimum of 4 years of continuous employment to be eligible for this program. Also, all openings in the Springboard program are technical in nature. After the completion of the internship the candidate can interview for a full time position with Microsoft. You can read more about this program here.

Dr. Reddy’s Comeback Careers for Women: Dr. Reddy’s also recognises the talent opportunities in women looking to resume their career life after a sabbatical. Unlike the Springboard program by Microsoft, these opportunities are full time with Dr. Reddy’s. They list the openings and women with a break in their career can apply. The openings are across all verticals and departments. The promise Dr. Reddy’s makes is to not let the career break influence their decision in hiring. You can look at the opportunities available here.

Second Career Internship Program by TATA: Tata launched SCIP way back in 2008 and defines it as a Career transition Management program for women. They also need women to have a minimum of 6 months and a maximum of 8 years break in their career. This program works a little differently. The program is based per project and they have a certain number of flexible hours the applicant needs to complete for the project. The project is location based. Applicants can apply based on a listed project or simply register for any upcoming projects that suit their profile. Visit this link for more information.

The fact that there are such opportunities available is testimony enough to the direction employers are taking in making their work place as positive as possible. Comment and let us know if you know of any other such programs or if you have personally experienced one yourself. We would love to hear about your experience.
