Job ApplicationWe’ve received many job applications over the years at Mikogo and while we appreciate every single one of them, some are far below par. We recently posted one example of such a poorly executed application on our Facebook wall to share what not to do. In fact, we’re often surprised how many mistakes some people make, how little research they do about the company, its products and the job offer, and how little love they put into their resumes and cover letters.

If you’re currently looking to apply for a new job, take a minute to browse the following list of do’s and don’ts.

Windows 8 TilesRecently Mikogo passed the “Certified for Windows 8″ program successfully, and is now available on the first ever Windows Store. We are very pleased to join Microsoft’s biggest operating system update in 17 years, which will allow users to download the Mikogo software and add it as a tile on the new-look Windows user interface for starting and joining online meetings on Windows 8.

The Mikogo desktop sharing software was successfully tested earlier in 2012 on the pre-release version of Microsoft’s new operating system, confirming its compatibility with the Windows 8 beta release. We are happy to be one of the first web conferencing applications to be available on the revolutionary Microsoft OS, joining the 10,000-plus apps in the store today.

Online Meeting Tools Review - 2nd PlaceWay to Go-go, Mikogo! Online Meeting Tools Review, a vendor-independent reviewer of web conferencing and webinar solutions, recently published their annual review and comparison of the best web conferencing and webinar software and Mikogo has landed itself at number 2, with an overall score of 9.28 out of 10!

Ted Carlson, CFE
Workers' Compensation Compliance SaaS Programs

In tough economic times, it is often easy to forget the needs and wants of small businesses, inadvertently allowing them to drift towards our periphery. With attention being moved toward complex financial markets and investment management, there is a tendency to forget that Main Street, not Wall Street, is what builds a healthy economy. Saying this, small businesses can only grow and flourish if they are managed efficiently and with a firm grip on compliance. If there’s anyone who understands that, it’s Ted Carlson.

Ted Carlson is a certified Fraud Examiner specializing in worker’s compensation compliance. For the past 9 years, Ted has been working hard to teach small businesses how to deal with worker’s compensation claims and avoid being audited. He also works to make sure there is accurate and up to date worker’s compensation information and reports for employers and insurance companies.
