LinkedIn enhances Premium subscriptions to help you optimize your career

LinkedIn is rolling out updates to its Premium subscription plans in a move to boost the value proposition and direct outcomes delivered through LinkedIn data on businesses, careers and education.8148014478 fc95cd7ca9 o

The changes are designed to make better use of both existing data and the new datasets LinkedIn is gathering on salary, company details and the courses its users are completing on LinkedIn Learning, a new service the company repackaged in September following its 2015 acquisition of

“The goal for us on the Premium team is to deliver direct economic outcomes to our members,” says Gyanda Sachdeva, senior director of product management and head of LinkedIn’s Premium subscription products.


LinkedIn Premium Business subscribers can now see data on companies, such as employee headcount and areas of growth by function and geography.

LinkedIn Learning and LinkedIn Salary (a new service launched in November to track and analyze salaries globally) are now included with all four versions of LinkedIn Premium. Job seekers can also see how they stack up against other potential applicants. Professionals can view more unique and timely data on specific businesses, including trends in headcount, geographic expansion, employee turnover and other information useful for competitive analysis, according to LinkedIn.


Premium subscribers who are seeking a new job can see how they rank against other potential applicants and details about current employees’ level of experience.

“Over time we have developed more coverage and precision on some of these data points,” Sachdeva tells LinkedIn is also surfacing this information in new ways, according to Schedeva. For example, when Premium subscribers look at LinkedIn’s “Who’s Viewed My Profile” feature they will now see more pertinent data on the particular companies whose employees are viewing their profile.

“We are seeing a shift in the mindset going away from just purely job seeking to also optimizing your career,” Sachdeva says. Subscribers who may not actively be seeking a new job could uncover gaps in pay for their profession and use data from LinkedIn Salary to negotiate a better salary, for example.

LinkedIn doesn’t release subscriber counts for its Premium products, but the division reported a year-over-year increase in revenue of 17 percent on $162 million during its third quarter of 2016. Microsoft officially closed its acquisition of LinkedIn in December and LinkedIn Premium numbers were not provided in Microsoft’s most recent earnings report last month. As of late 2016, however, Sales Navigator remained the fastest growing bundle in LinkedIn’s Premium subscriptions.

LinkedIn’s lineup of premium offerings ranges from $30 to $60 a month for job seekers and other professionals, $80 monthly for sales professionals and $120 per month for recruiters. Sachdeva says LinkedIn is focusing on ways to grow the business and has no immediate plan to change pricing. “The goal actually has been the opposite where we just want to add a lot more value and keep the price the same with the intention of improving customer [return on investment],” she says.

LinkedIn Premium is predominantly comprised of customers in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, according to Sachdeva. All of the LinkedIn Premium enhancements are now available to subscribers, according to the company.

Microsoft teases Windows 10’s sleek new look for the future

Microsoft’s planning a sleek visual refresh for Windows 10, and the company quietly teased its first official glimpse of what’s coming in the future during the Windows Developer Day keynote on 10

There aren’t many details being shared about “Project Neon” right now—as the refresh was called in earlier leaks—but the new visual look will focus on animations and transitions. The basic concept is “to add fluidity, animation, and blur to apps and the operating system,” as first reported by Windows Central. The new design language also hopes to make it easier for developers to create attractive apps.

The design refresh should extend to all Windows 10 devices including PCs and tablets, HoloLens, Xbox, and the few surviving Windows Phones, according to Windows Central.


Twitter user Tom Hounsell shared a clean version of Microsoft’s first look at Windows 10’s forthcoming design tweaks. The image shown on the livestream had large text overlaid on top of the screenshot.

As you can see, this isn’t a huge change, but the visual refresh gives Windows 10 a sleeker, more modern feel. The taskbar icons look a little more dynamic and bolder. Cortana is using the icon instead of the search box, though it’s not clear if this will be the default look. The clock on the taskbar is also bolder, and the usual notification area icons including the Action Center are notably absent. The open Groove Music window itself looks more polished and Aero-esque as well, with no title bar to be seen—just unobtrusive options in the app’s upper-right corner.

Windows Central says that some of the code for Project Neon is already available in recent Insider Preview builds of Windows 10; however, it’s unlikely the visual refresh will be ready in time for the massive Creators Update this spring. Microsoft is expected to share more information about Neon during the Build conference in May. The Creators Update is expected to roll out in late March or early April, followed by a second major update later in 2017.

Microsoft will likely fix Windows SMB denial-of-service flaw on Patch Tuesday

Microsoft will likely wait until February 14 to fix a publicly disclosed vulnerability in the SMB network file sharing protocol that can be exploited to crash Windows stock campus building

The vulnerability was disclosed Thursday when the security researcher who found it posted a proof-of-concept exploit for it on GitHub. There was concern initially that the flaw might also allow for arbitrary code execution and not just denial-of-service, which would have made it critical.

The CERT Coordination Center (CERT/CC) at Carnegie Mellon University at first mentioned arbitrary code execution as a possibility in an advisory released Thursday. However, the organization has since removed that wording from the document and downgraded the flaw’s severity score from 10 (critical) to 7.8 (high).

Attackers can exploit the vulnerability by tricking Windows systems to connect to malicious SMB servers that send specially crafted responses. Successful exploitation will result in a crash in the mrxsmb20.sys driver, which will trigger a so-called Blue Screen of Death (BSOD).

There are a number of techniques to force computers to open SMB connections and some require little or no user interaction, CERT/CC warned. The organization confirmed the exploit on Windows 10 and Windows 8.1, as well as Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2012 R2.

“Windows is the only platform with a customer commitment to investigate reported security issues, and proactively update impacted devices as soon as possible,” a Microsoft representative said via email. “Our standard policy is that on issues of low risk, we remediate that risk via our current Update Tuesday schedule.”

Update or Patch Tuesday is the day when Microsoft typically releases security updates for its products. This occurs on the second Tuesday of every month and the next one is scheduled for February 14.

The company sometimes breaks out of this regular patch cycle to release updates for critical and actively exploited vulnerabilities, but this won’t likely happen in this case, especially now that the flaw’s severity has been decreased and there’s apparently no threat of remote code execution.

Windows 10’s Creators Update bug bash begins, signalling an end to new feature releases

On Friday, Microsoft announced the launch of its “bug bash” for the Windows 10 Creators Update, a sign that it’s beginning to slowly wind down its development process before it finally releases the next major version of Windows.

Historically, Microsoft begins each iteration of its milestone Windows 10 releases bwindows 10 creators update bug bashy fixing a few last-minute bugs from the previous version. It then begins rolling out and testing all the new features of the upcoming milestone to Windows Insiders in the preview program.

At some point, though, Microsoft moves into the last phase of its development process, fixing all of the bugs that Microsoft employees and its Windows Insider beta testers discover in the imminent release. That phase typically begins with a huge bug-fixing exercise, known as the “bug bash,” whose current iteration will run through Feb. 11. Microsoft uses the information it gathers to determine which bugs are the most serious and prevalent, prioritizing them.

Microsoft hasn’t said when the Creators Update will actually ship; it’s still due in “early 2017.” The blog post announcing the bug bash notes that Microsoft developers will be working on fixing these bugs for the next “several weeks,” however, meaning that our guess that the Creators Update could be released at the end of March is still valid.

Most users know on some level that adding a new software feature introduces new bugs to go along with it. The annual bug bash/bug-fixing phase is critical, however, to help shape the public’s opinion. Not every bug will be found or eliminated before the software’s release. The idea is to at least prevent headline-grabbing glitches such as those that disabled webcams in the Anniversary Update.

Any motivation to assist Microsoft in its bug bash is primarily a charitable one, with the end goal of simply improving Windows. Nevertheless, Microsoft is offering special Bug Bash badges for the Feedback Hub as prizes for those that participate.

Insiders need to check the Windows 10 Feedback Hub for new “Quests,” tasks that Microsoft would like beta testers to perform to check for bugs. Leaving feedback within the Hub is also encouraged. You’ll need to make sure that you’re running the latest Windows 10 preview, Insider Build 15025, which includes a consolidated feedback mechanism so that similar reports are consolidated into a single response.

 Microsoft will also hold live webcasts with engineers from 2 through 4 P.M. PT on Feb. 7, and from 7 through 9 P.M. on Feb. 7, to walk users through some of the quests. Those quests will change over the course of the week, Microsoft said.

As always, we recommend that Insiders test out Windows 10 on a secondary PC, one that you don’t do anything truly important on. Stumbling across glitches or bugs that can break or force you to reset your PC is part of the Insider experience. Cruising on an Insider machine, though, can also be an awful lot of fun.

Managing Product Innovation

What is the forecast for the manufacturing sector for the near future? Is your company looking for a more efficient way to implement new products in the manufacturing process?

We will look at the manufacturing projections for the upcoming year and investigate ways to improve new product innovations.

We will be focusing our attention on United States economic forecasts, and bear in mind that any suggestions offered can be implemented within any company that does business outside of the United States.


Consumer spending continues to rise at a steady level and projections indicate this will continue in 2017. Overall, the general economic forecast for 2017 looks better than what 2016 has offered.

Now armed with a positive economic forecast, it is time to evaluate what the best way is to implement new products into your manufacturing department. This is of course if your company has budgeted for these expenses and has planned accordingly.

We know new product implementation is not an overnight matter that happens over drinks where we draw it up on a bar napkin and implement the following day. Careful thought and consideration is necessary to have a successful launch.

By finding and using a new production introduction software package that utilizes in house solutions, you can eliminate the headaches that come with third-parties and enjoy quicker customer support.

Be certain that this software package includes features and benefits such as; Task Flow Management, Assembly and Part Management, and Design Data Importing.

Terry Jones, the founder and former Chief Executive Officer of Travelocity, makes a bold statement in that; “If you want your people to be innovative you have to create a culture where innovation can thrive”.

Why would you not give your new product innovators the best tools possible to not only create, but to also execute the manufacturing of these products in the most efficient and effective way possible?

Keeping a closed mind and staying complacent hurts everyone, open your mind to new ideas and explore.

What is one common aspect of doing business that all industry leaders agree upon? The importance of networking.


It can be traced to almost all areas of our lives; from as far back to childhood on the playground and after school to when we started interviewing for a job fresh out of college.

When it comes to new product innovations, simply waiting until your product hits the market is insufficient to have a successful launch. Awareness is key, and you know this already. So why not capitalize on ways to network to “put it out there”?

By joining, and participating, in an association that tailors to product development your business will only benefit. The business is not the only benefactor here, as the attendee(s) will be able to network with other like-minded individuals and organizations.

Not only do these associations offer the trade shows and networking events, they also offer the opportunity for growth through investigation.

This is as dynamic of a time as one could dream of to be in business with the technology at our disposal. Capitalize on the resources available and watch your business grow.
