Post 1: 
Hi All,
I am pleasantly surprised how these articles we read this week are so right on for the unfortunate times we live in. They are easy to read and easily understandable for any reader. I have lot of takeaways, but i am going to emphasize on three, First one is Similarity-Attraction Paradigm explained so well by Dr. Forret. I felt this all the time that people with similar race, gender or ethnicity work comfortably and succeed in their work because of trusting each other and learning from each other. For example, in one of my MBA class when i entered the room i saw tables each with 4 chairs. I went and sat at one of the tables and 10mins into to the class I turned around and I was shocked how people coming in one by one picked their team. All the people with similar race sat together including my table. My second takeaway is from the PowerPoint presentation by Dr. Forret mentioning that networking is about giving either in terms of money, time, your effort/energy into helping someone. I tell my kids this all the time. Always do good and expect nothing. If someone reciprocates (also explained by Dr. Forret in her PowerPoint and the article Guide to successfully Navigate Career Changes) then it is good. My third takeaway is how Dr. Forret & Dr. Sullivan explained the three shifts (Emphasis on Intrinsic rewards, self-reliance, professional loyalty). How true is all that, is my feeling when I was reading this article.
Thank you,
Dhatri Alla
Post 2:
 My analysis discussed the results of the two different networking diagnostic tests. I found that I need to try and grow my network at all levels, especially in my profession. I am an accountant currently and have a limited background in supply chain management. Perhaps joining an organization that is in this field would be beneficial. My first takeaway is having a broad social network is important for forming connections and being able to achieve different goals both in your career and out. These social networks are arguably just as important as human capital and technical skills. A second takeaway is I realized how difficult it can be for different minority groups to form connections and network, especially with powerful people who have clout to help them. There are numerous reasons for this, one reason is people like to interact with people who are similar to them (i.e.: gender, race, ethnicity). A third takeaway was from the grant video recording. He did a good job of explaining how to get past the negative aspect of networking and how to network properly. Networking properly can be done by asking for advice rather than by wanting something more burdensome. It also was clear that being able to help the person you are contacting is beneficial, so you are not just trying to take and use the other person. 
Thank You,
Hadden

Write a 3-5 page compensation and benefits package for a new expatriate position working for either Java Corp or an organization with which you are familiar.
Introduction
Structuring and communicating a total compensation package that meets regulatory requirements and the needs of a global workforce requires a delicate balancing act between what is required and what will contribute to an effective relationship between employer, employee, and the community or country in which the company operates. Communicating benefits programs to employees can be as important as the benefits themselves. Knowing how to leverage all available compensation options is a necessary skill for any HR professional.
Preparation
Research compensation and benefits for either Java Corp or an organization of your choice. A minimum of four resources are required to support your work.
Scenario
For this assessment, choose either option 1 or 2. You do not need to do both. You will apply one of these scenarios in the instructions below. Both options will be graded using the same scoring guide.

You are planning on filling one executive level position with a U.S. citizen. In the scenario, the employee filling the role can either be an existing employee or a new hire. The term of the initial assignment is two years. Design a compensation package for this position as the new HR manager.
Option 2
Choose an organization to use for this assessment. It can be where you are currently employed or a company with which you are familiar. It must be an organization that is researchable, as you will need to gather and analyze information to complete the assessment. You may use the same organization you have used in past assessments.
If you choose the organization where you are currently employed, please keep in mind that the analyses you make must be based on facts that can be documented rather than your personal opinion as an employee.
Research the compensation and benefits of the chosen organization. The company is opening a new branch office in London, England. You are planning on filling one executive level position with a U.S. citizen. This employee can be newly hired or an existing employee. The term of the initial assignment is two years. You are the new HR manager and must design a compensation package for this position.

 each question should be answered with a page and a half
pick a single company in the S&P 500 and answer the following four questions…
Experience  is a common job requirement – but aspiring professionals are often  frustrated by this obstacle to career advancement. They think “I need  experience to get the job BUT I need the job to get experience!!!” Maybe  you can relate to this. First, research and describe how your chosen  company is handling the question of education and experience  requirements in hiring. Then, explain how you would handle it  differently (if at all) if you were in charge of Human Resources and  Workforce Management for the same company. How much would or should be  necessary? Would it vary by job? If so, how? And are there any  exceptions?
2.  Some businesses focus a lot on succession  planning. Others, however, seem to just put off worrying about it until  someone dies, resigns, or gets fired. First, research and describe how  your chosen company is handling the questions of employee development  and succession planning. Then, explain how you would handle it  differently (if at all) if you were in charge of Human Resources and  Workforce Management for the same company. What kind of programs or  initiatives or incentives would you put in place? How would you measure  whether your efforts are achieving the desired goals? 
3.  Most businesses run payroll biweekly, but  some do it more frequently and some less frequently. First, research  and describe how your chosen company is handling the question of payroll  frequency. Then, explain how you would handle it differently (if at  all) if you were in charge of Human Resources and Workforce Management  for the same company. What are the advantages and drawbacks to your  chosen frequency? 
4.  Location is a critical variable in  determining not just where a business’s operations will be situated, but  also where it will find its human capital and talent. First, research  and describe how your chosen company is handling location strategy.  Then, explain how you would handle it differently (if at all) if you  were in charge of Human Resources and Workforce Management for the same  company. If you were asked to identify a new city (anywhere in the  United States) for a corporate headquarters office, what city would you  suggest and why? Be sure to consider variables like minimum wage and  taxes, average education levels, and other factors that would be  relevant to such a decision 
 minimum of eight (8) sources (two for each of the questions)
