    Young people need a new approach to employability and digital skills

    In June 2013, the EU youth unemployment rate was 23.5%. In Greece, it was around 60%, in Spain 55%, while in Italy and Portugal it was 40%. Overall, around 5.5 million people in the EU between 15 and 24 are not in education, employment or training. At the same time, only around 13% of millennials have a LinkedIn account, and only 7% intend to get one. Young people cite that there aren’t other young people on LinkedIn and that a lack of employment history puts them off from joining. They feel inferior to others on LinkedIn, and the site isn’t designed with young people in mind. The worlds’ largest employability…

I’ll get to them in a minute. The reason…

That said, my wife this year braved the crowds, and very cold weather, to stand in a line to get our kids a Wii game console. We have avoided any sort of gaming device for our kids for years, but this one has won us over from…

    Pet Peeves Still Interest People

    It has been some time since I have written on What’s Gotta Go. My lack of compositional volume is not for a lack of things to gripe about, trust me! I thought I would write a little catch-up and insight as to the status of things. A bit over a year ago I started up WGG as an experiment on several levels. First, I wanted to try out WordPress as blog software. Second, I thought it would be interesting to see how well placed a blog like this could get ranked in Google, as a site, and on various topics. Third, I thought it would be fun to rant about…
