The American Mathematical Society, the American Statistical Association, the Mathematical Association of America, and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics announce that the theme for Mathematics Awareness Month, April 2012, is Mathematics, Statistics, and the Data Deluge.

This comes from 2 math teachers with a combined total of 70 years experience. It has an indisputable mathematical logic.

What Makes 100%?

What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%.

How about achieving 103%?

But what makes up 100% in life?

Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:

If:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Are represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

Then:

H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

And

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E 

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But,

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that while Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, Attitude will always get you there.

Let’s apply this mathematical formula to a job search,
once you identify a job opening.
H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
(Focus on acquiring 1 inside advocate EVERYDAY using LinkedIn , Hoovers, Manta, Lead 411, Discover Org, ETP Angel Program and ETP member directory)
K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E (7 Step Job Search)
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%
A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

Believe you have GREAT Skills to offer and Sell those skills with enthusiasm!!!  Believe there are 3 job offers with your name on them RIGHT NOW and every “No” gets you closer to “YES“.
