As many of you are aware, the office of undergraduate career services is undergoing several changes this year. Among those changes include the introduction of CareerEdge. This online resource will allow you to access campus career events, job postings, recruiting and employer information, and blog posts by the career services team.
By hovering over the Blog tab, you can filter blog posts by your major to get narrowed results. The Featured Jobs section allows you to view the featured jobs as well as all other jobs that you can apply to. They’ve also included useful filters to narrow your job search by state, type (full time, internship, etc.), industry, and function. The website has many other cool features, so definitely be sure to check it out at careeredge.bentley.edu
As a convenience, we’ve added an RSS feed to our website that links directly to the CareerEdge blog posts. Located on the left sidebar, you’ll be able to view the most recent posts.
You may have recently been hearing about the words “Big Data” if you’ve been following news in the technology industry. It is a relatively new trend that is just beginning to make an impact and affects more industries than just IT. It can be seen being used almost everywhere from healthcare to financial services to telecommunications and even transportation.
So what exactly is big data? Lets start off with a few facts:
That’s a lot of data! The concept of big data emerges from this trend. However, it is important to realize that big data doesn’t only encompass the large amounts of data that firms have today, but also how this data is analyzed and interpreted. That is the heart of big data: what do you do with such massive amounts of data, how do you analyze it (what tools do you use), what do you analyze (what is relevant vs. what isn’t), and how can it help you find relevant trends in your industry. Through the business courses you’ve taken, you probably know that this kind of analysis can be very valuable to firms.
These data that are being analyzed can be pretty much anything. One might want to analyze the thousands of comments that people post on articles that relate to the latest iPhone 5 news, what is going on in the financial markets, which hot new phones are coming out soon, what are people saying about the presidential candidates, etc. Using these data, analysts can better understand what people think about certain products, where certain trends are going and which ones are starting. Moreover, big data tools are very powerful. (more…)

Do you have an email account on GMail? What about Youtube? Google+? Google Talk? Do you do Google searches while you’re logged into your Google account, or use the Google Calendar? As you can see, Google has a lot of products that are available for the daily user. And each product comes with its own settings where you can customize and manage your privacy, etc.
You’ve most likely searched for images on Google by using keywords, but have you ever searched for images using images? It would be a pretty cool idea wouldn’t it? This is exactly what Google allows you to do now. And it is just as easy to do as normal searching.
You can get started by going over to http://www.google.com/images, or if you’re on the main Google website, you can just click on the “Images” link at the top left corner. You’ll know you’re on the right page when you see the small ‘camera’ icon next to the search box.

So you’re building a website for a class project or for your job and you’ve finished creating all of the content. Everything looks nice and orderly, just as it should. Then you go to upload the pages onto your web server only to find out that the links on your webpages don’t work. What could be wrong? A little bit of background on relative and absolute addressing could be helpful.
In the world of web design, you can create links to other pages in one of two ways: use absolute path URLs, or use relative path URLs. These concepts may sound complicated, but they’re really simple.
