Understanding USA Job Requirements


Most of our information is directed to individuals, companies and organizations whose native language is not English.  We provide "ESL" English as a Second Language classes and English language learning resources.  For many "new" Americans learning English is step 1.

Looking for an Online Advertized USA Job Opening

We have selected Klout - this is the link to their careers page - http://klout.com/corp/careers .

I have signed up to Klout - created a profile and loaded in my social media profiles.  If I was age 22 to 35 with either a communications or programming background and an interest in social media - then I would look at Klout as a potential employer. This is what I would research to apply for a job at Klout.

Selecting the KEY JOB FACTORS on the Klout Careers page.

Open Job positions - lists what they are specifically looking for + job location.

Technology used at Klout:
Hadoop  Hbase  Hive Node Backbone Scala Play Elastic Search Mongo DB Redis Akka Flume Storm

Understanding the Company Klout

What does Klout do? - What is the science behind social media ?? - What is an open source tech stack? - What is a Kloutlaw?  - What is collaborating with Disney, Virgin, GM or P&G? -

Understanding the Personal Requirements

What is Staying Fueled? - What is a break? - What is staying fresh? - What is a trailblazers? - What is thinking outside the establishment? - What is a visionary team? - Can you work harder than anyone else? - What is tackling obstacles? - What is investing ourselves completely in the process? - What is trusting our teammates? - What is embracing our goals?

What English and USA Knowledge would I need to apply for a Job at a Company such as KLOUT

1. what open positions do they have
2. what technology expertise do they require - match to positions if possible
3. what personal qualities do they require
4. can I work as part of their team and mesh within their corporate environment

What is usually required to apply for a position such as listed at Klout?

 I would prepare a cover letter, resume, work portfolio and list of referrals.
