Mike Combs was promoted to Director of Asset Protection for Supply Chain Home Depot. 

Last week's announcement of the SEC fine on Office Depot for improper disclosure charges to U.S. regulators is followed by this week's announcement that their chief executive, Steve Odland, will be stepping down on November 1.  Of interesting note is that Steve Odland also paid a $50,000 fine in a settlement to the SEC for the same incident in 2007.  (Source Reuters)

Google will require all 23,000 employees to undergo privacy training and introduce more checks aimed at making sure workers obey rules regarding privacy to ensure that its employees are not intruding on people and collecting data on them.  (Source Associated Press)

Between June 2008 and February 2010, the LP industry lost 44 senior LP positions in North America.  From March 2010 up to the present, we've seen 24 senior LP positions added back.  While they certainly don't line up one for one relative to companies, it does mean retail America is bringing them back in a relatively short period.  It'll be interesting to see when we hit the 44 number.

eBay Joins the Fight Against Breast Cancer

eBay, the world's largest online marketplace, makes it easy to help raise a lot for a cause by giving a little. Throughout October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, eBay is inviting consumers to join the fight against breast cancer by pledging their support to sell, buy or donate through eBay Giving Works. eBay Giving Works, a program offering convenient, trusted ways for eBay sellers and buyers to support their favorite nonprofits, provides a unique opportunity for consumers to give to a cause they care about without reaching into their wallets. "In fact, for the value of every laptop sold this month through Giving Works, one uninsured patient could get a mammogram," said Robert Chatwani, Director eBay Global Citizenship. "Each person who takes part in this campaign will have an impact on the fight against breast cancer." On eBay, more than $68 is raised for a cause every minute and a donation is made every 24 seconds through the Giving Works program, which has helped raise more than $200 million for nonprofits since 2003.

Preparing for an interview should be exhaustive.  However, the day of the interview you should clear your head and not do any prep at all or look at any notes other than the well thought out prepared questions you've come up with.  A clear mind performs better than one that's cluttered and trying to remember everything.  And all the prep you've done should be well stored in your mind.  Have faith in it and try to relax the day of the interview and work out if you can before it.  The mind body connection is a powerful thing and your brain cannot operate at 100% if your body isn't there with it.

Good Luck
Gus Downing
