Why Study a Healthcare Course or Degree

Why Study a Healthcare Course or Degree

Deciding on a career path can be difficult when you start considering all of the different college majors and degrees there are to choose from. Of course, one of the most common recommendations in this regard would be the healthcare field, as it offers a number of unique benefits, ideal starting salaries, and a diverse range of job positions to pick from. However, beyond those basic benefits, here are the three main reasons why so many people are getting into the healthcare profession:

1. Multitude of Career Options

Healthcare is a broad field and most of the jobs aren’t as difficult as being a doctor or surgeon. Thus, students who want a simpler and faster introductory entrance into the medical field could study to become a registered nurse or take a course to become a medical assistant (bestmedicalassistanteducation.com). Of course, another benefit of working in healthcare is that you’re free to continue advancing your medical knowledge and credentials to eventually pursue higher paying positions. With so many options on the table, you can always switch to a different healthcare profession later on if desired. Plus, even the entry level positions offer starting pay as high as $15-$20/hour.

Why Cloud Storage is Important for Startups

Why Cloud Storage is Important for Startups

When starting a new business, it’s always a challenge working out where to spend the few financial resources you have.

What Hosting Plan Does a Startup Require?

What Hosting Plan Does a Startup Require?

There are different kinds of startups. Some are affiliates sites that review products and sell them via retailers, taking a commission for their referral. Other startups are dot-coms, app-based, or web app ones that have different needs to an internet marketer with their affiliate site.

Let’s consider what hosting plans are suitable for different types of startups.

Web App

Web apps are typically Software-as-a-Server (SaaS) business models where customers visit their website, sign up, log in, and then begin using their software. The software isn’t installed. Rather, it is the website. Try to imagine a world where the cloud storage provider Dropbox only has a website and no mobile apps. You’d log into your Dropbox account and then transfer files back and forth; that’s a web app.

Nueva Era de Content Marketing en 2018: Cómo desarrollar tu estrategia con éxito?

En 2005 Matt Cutts, director de Google Webspam Team, publico en su propio Blog: “Invierte tu tiempo en investigar, sintetizar y producir contenido original”.

Más de 10 años después, ese consejo ya no es “suficiente” como para poder alcanzar las primeras posiciones de Google.

Históricamente, los responsables de Content Marketing en una empresa se enfocaban en desarrollar contenido único escalándolo a través de la creación de nuevas páginas centradas en distintas palabras claves relacionadas con su industria. Esto a partir de 2015, definitivamente no es la estrategia que permitirá generar nuevos clientes con éxito a futuro.

Tech Startups Learn to Soar in Buenos Aires

Tech Startups Learn to Soar in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, the riverside metropolis where the tango is danced and the passion for soccer overflows on the weekends, is also gaining global recognition as a launch pad for high-tech companies.

The Argentinian capital of 3 million has been dubbed Latin America’s Silicon Valley, a place where many promising startups are born and where some have transformed into successful “unicorns”— companies whose valuation exceeds $1 billion.

One such unicorn is Globant, a software and data services provider based in La Plata, just south of Buenos Aires. With just $5,000 and a borrowed office, co-founder Martin Migoya and three partners opened for business in 2003 when Argentina was just emerging from a severe financial crisis. Fourteen years later, Globant has grown into a truly global giant with offices in 17 countries and total annual revenues of $400 million.
