When you’re hiring for a new position, it’s tempting to go straight for the most impressive resume or portfolio. With dozens of applications to read and not much time to make a decision on who to interview, the cover letter often gets overlooked in the hiring process.

But the truth is, cover letters can reveal a lot about a candidate (both good and bad), and it’s worth taking the time to read every single one.

Take it from this panel of 11 successful entrepreneurs from the Young Entrepreneur Council, who share the reasons they ask for cover letters.Image

It’s easy to feel like you’re in the hot seat during a job interview — you really want the position, you’re battling all sorts of jitters and it certainly doesn’t help that the stern executive sitting in front of you looks like he could use another cup of coffee.

What often gets lost in the interview process, however, is a dialogue between job seekers and prospective employers, rather than a one-way Q&A. Instead of letting the interviewer ask all the questions, you should find the appropriate time to ask more about the position, the company and the industry.

Here are the most important questions job seekers should ask during an interview, according to career experts and human resource professionals.

1. What is the company culture like?

2. What constitutes success?

3. Who previously held this position?

4. Is there anything missing from my resume?

5. What comes next?

Starts out about yahoo and privacy and how yahoo wants to give whatever the NSA asks for to them and ends up with the growth of broadband speeds would provide the biggest change in technology over the next five years.

The chief executive of Yahoo has demanded that the technology giant is allowed to publish details of all personal data requests from America’s controversial National Security Agency.
Marissa Mayer said that the present system was “murky” and that greater transparency about the relationship between personal data and the security services was the only way to ensure the public trusted the system.
Yahoo and other technology giants like Google are barred from publishing details of the the requests at present. The NSA has been accused of indiscriminately harvesting mobile phone activity.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Ms Mayer argued that there were understandable “concerns” about what the NSA was looking at following a major series of leaks on America’s security body by Edward Snowden.
She said that Yahoo is already allowed to publish details of US state requests for information including “how many we get and the nature” of the request.

“We really want to be able to do the same thing on the NSA level,” she said. “What is murky is that people don’t know”
Gavin Patterson, the chief executive of BT, echoed Ms Mayer’s call for action. He said that Parliament should consider new legislation on the issue.
“Government legislation has to catch up,” he said. “It is often several years behind and in this sphere it is not fit for purpose.
“There need to be clear guidelines on what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. It is just too murky at the moment.”
Mr Patterson said that people understood that some sacrifice of privacy was necessary for reasons of security but the public needed to know what the rules were.

BY KURT WAGNER2 HOURS AGO

For a taste of who uses the image-based social network We Heart It, look no further thanFacebook.

A simple Graph Search query for “People who work at We Heart It” returns hundreds of results, many of them young females with titles like “Boss,” “Heartbreaker,” and even “Chief Executive Officer,” all claiming to work at the 2-year-old startup.

This list is not the actual staff roster from the San Francisco-based social network. In fact, We Heart It has only 18 employees. Instead, these are the platform’s loyal users, and the counterfeit job titles somewhat baffle, but ultimately please, the startup’s actual CEO, Ranah Edelin.
