Hello everyone, Andy Gesner, owner and president of HIP Video Promo!

As someone who has worked in music video promotion for nearly 20 years, I want to share with you the biggest question I am asked here at HIP: how do I get my music video on MTV? Well, ladies and gentlemen, attaching the brand of your artistry to an international brand like MTV is not easy.

You can look online, and they’re going to direct you to a company called DMDS- Digital Music Delivery Service. They’re in Canada, and they are expensive. Why pay them a large sum of money to have your new music video close-captioned, quality checked, and then submitted through their portal to MTV, mtvU, MTV’s Pluto channels?

Five Ways To Attract A+ Talent to Your Team

No need to panic; we all have had to fine tune this process, and have even stunk at it in the past. How can we make sure we learn the lessons and begin attracting, recruiting and retaining those A+ Players?

1. Define what an A-B-C player looks like within your organization and communicate throughout the ENTIRE organization. State what having the right players on your team means to the success of your organization, and what the wrong players mean to your detriment. Think in terms of $$$ and overall morale. Make it a part of your dialogue, both internally and externally. It must become a part of your culture, who you are and march your vision.
Determine who is responsible for the process. How it will be implemented and communicated throughout the ENTIRE organization. Also, develop a training protocol for success. Define expected outcomes, and make sure they match your mission.
Discuss expectations with everyone on the team and what attributes or skills are critical to measur

7 Reasons Executive Search is Essential to Your Next Hire

Fortunately, trusting an executive search firm with the recruitment can help you avoid costly mistakes in the future. If you have not worked with such a company in the past, here are seven compelling reasons why you should start today:

Additional knowledge and resources: Recruiters often maintain large networks of people they are working to place in high-level jobs. This is a source you would not necessarily have access to when going about the hiring process in the usual manner. They are also adept at cold calling and getting passive candidates more interested in the position your company has to offer.
Confidentiality: This is particularly important when your company is recruiting specific candidates from another organization. Not only could you face legal troubles for approaching the employee of a competitor, it could damage your company’s reputation as well. Executive search firms also bring objectivity to the table. Your contact can tell you what a competitive industry s

These are the industries that are hiring for professional roles now

We spoke to recruiting experts, and these are the types of jobs and industries that are still seeking qualified applicants during a pandemic.

By Stephanie Vozza

If you’re looking for a gig to help pay the bills, grocery stores and delivery companies need help—and fast. But if you’re looking for something permanent or want to take the next step in your career, you may be able to find a professional role, too, says Michelle Armer, chief people officer at the job site CareerBuilder.

“There is definitely still a demand for professional and management workers across many different industries,” she says.

5+ Essentials to Effectively Promoting Your Brand in Crisis

This is not a time to sit still and wait until ‘everything is normal again.’ This is a time to use your isolation to intently think long and deep about who you are as a professional, what your company REALLY does, and what the world should know about your brand – either professional or corporate. Get clear, and get ready to make sure your voice, your talents, your value and your message are heard, not silenced ….revealed, not suppressed…made visible, not extinguished…during and long after this temporary cloistering.

Without self promotion, something terrible happens – nothing. Being the best kept secret in the world is nothing to be proud of, unless you are in special ops or other covert line of work….If your breakout strategy depends on waiting to be discovered and rewarded based on merit alone, bring a lunch and several good reads – you will be waiting a long while. You have just this one life to live, and without mastering the fine art of self promotion, it is

Measles: To vaccinate or not?

The US has been measles-free for 15 years but there has been a new outbreak, which started at Disneyland in California. The theme park has been praised for its handling of the outbreak, which may have been triggered by an overseas visitor. The spread of cases across seven states and Mexico is being blamed on parents who have chosen not to give their children the MMR vaccine, due to concerns about potential side effects. No authoritative research has been published to back up claims that the vaccine may be linked to autism and bowel disease.
Alistair Leithead reports from Orange County in California.

Assam NRC: People queue to check they are on list – BBC News



People have been queuing across the Indian state of Assam to check if their name is on the National Register of Citizens.

India has published the final version of a list which effectively strips about 1.9 million people in the north-eastern state of their citizenship.

Families have been required to provide documentation to show their lineage, with those who cannot prove their citizenship deemed illegal foreigners.

India says the process is needed to identify illegal Bangladeshi migrants.

The BBC’s South Asia correspondent Rajini Vaidyanathan has been to the village of Katajhar to meet some of the people who say they are at risk.
