The market for smartphones under Rs 30,000 in India is highly competitive. OEMs have often found it difficult to manoeuvre across this market where ‘bang for your buck’ is prioritised above all else. Enter the OnePlus Nord 2T, a mid-range smartphone that was unveiled in India back in July. In our first impressions of the OnePlus Nord 2T, we noted that the device had a lot of potential and was a welcomed addition to the India’s sub-30K smartphone market. But is that still the case after extensively using this device? We’ll answer that question right after a brief note on the OnePlus Nord 2T’s price in India. OnePlus Nord 2T Price in India The OnePlus Nord 2T is priced at Rs 28,999 for the base 8GB/128GB model. The handset also comes in a 12GB/256GB variant that will set you back Rs 33,999.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Executive Resume Writer and Former Recruiter | Partners with clients to tell their unique career story | careerintelligenceresumewriting There's no doubt that looking for a job during a pandemic is exceptionally challenging. Right now, millions are furloughed, underemployed or out of work. The United States unemployment rate was 6.7% (with 10 million+ unemployed) in November 2020, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics latest news release. While this number has declined over the last six months, it's not close to the 3.5% level reported in February 2020. That said, looking for a job in a booming economy isn't easy either. When people feel confident in finding another job, they often decide to begin exploring opportunities. As they move from being passive job seekers (those who need to be enticed to move) to active job seekers, competition for plum positions grows. The truth is, standing … [Read more...] about How To Get Hired In A Highly Competitive Job Market
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Ryan Lucia, Founder of Such n Such Media & Aaron Overhead Doors. Ryan is an entrepreneur, speaker, podcast host, and consultant. To attract top talent, business leaders consistently tout their company culture as amazing, forward-thinking and welcoming to all people. And yet, according to a 2022 survey , toxic company culture is the number one reason for the many employees who quit their jobs in 2021 and 2022. Are business leaders so disconnected from the daily operations of their company, or do they genuinely feel their company culture is good even when it’s not? My Experience With Poor Company Culture Before starting my own business, I worked for a company that was eventually acquired. After the acquisition, the new leadership called a companywide meeting and explained that they wanted to prioritize mutual respect and build more meaningful relationships among employees and between employees and … [Read more...] about Every Company Has A Culture; Is Yours Good Or Bad?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Out of the blue, Elliott Sadler picked up the phone and called his public relations representative and said he needed a new business manager. On the other end of the line was Brett Griffin, a young man from the small town Pageland, South Carolina. Griffin, who started working as Sadler’s PR representative at Wood Brothers Racing in 1999, imagined he’d eventually be a racer’s manager, but not so rapidly. It was late 2000, and the next day, Sadler called and made a second offer that would change Griffin’s life. “I’m 26 years old, working for Elliott as his business manager, and the next day, Elliott called me and said, ‘I want you to come spot for me,’” Griffin recalled. “I’ve done two races in my life, one at Watkins Glen and one at New Hampshire in 2000. “As Elliott began making changes in his career, he wanted to make a spotter change and I’ll never forget it. When he first offered it to me, I thought I was going … [Read more...] about Nascar Spotter Brett Griffin Guides Drivers From Above And Behind The Scenes
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Forbes 400, 2017 Jamel Toppin Because Texans are obviously the most important subset of the billionaires who make up the Forbes 400 list of wealthiest Americans, I have conveniently culled them here for easy perusal. Fun fact for your next cocktail party: the newest Texan to join the Forbes 400 ranks is Bert "Tito" Beveridge , founder of Tito's vodka. The 55-year-old entrepreneur will sell close to 60 million bottles this year, enough to earn him an estimated net worth of $2.5 billion. Overall, America's rich just keep getting richer -- thanks in large part to Internet Bubble 2.0. The Forbes 400 net worth cut off this year was a record-high $2 billion. In Texas, low oil prices have flatlined the growth in some fortunes, like that of San Antonio natural gas tycoon Rod Lewis and business legend Red McCombs. They may still be billionaires, but they're no longer rich enough to make the Forbes … [Read more...] about Forbes 400: The Richest People In Texas, 2017
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Andy Techmanski (center) briefs a Whitefish crew on the ground in Puerto Rico. Courtesy Whitefish Though Puerto Rico canceled his controversial contract last weekend, Whitefish Energy CEO Andy Techmanski is still working to restore the island’s power — and his reputation. Just days after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, Andy Techmanski, the CEO of Whitefish Energy, arrived and offered his assistance to the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) to help repair the island’s devasted power grid. He first connected with PREPA after Hurricane Irma’s glancing blow a few weeks prior had knocked out power to parts of the island. Then Maria completed the devastation. Techmanski was ready to get to work. After two decades building power transmission systems across the U.S., U.K., Middle East and western Canada with the likes of Quanta Field Services, Techmanski launched Whitefish three years ago … [Read more...] about Is That $300 Million Puerto Rico Power Contract ‘Whitefishgate’ Or Just a Red Herring?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin As the first woman to run a big American oil company, Vicki Hollub has quickly made Occidental Petroleum leaner, smarter, gentler--and poised to gusher cash for the next half-century. South Curtis Ranch is an 11,000-acre "unit" that Occidental Petroleum operates in the Permian Basin, a 300-mile swath of West Texas and southeastern New Mexico that produces a quarter of America's oil. Here, cattle placidly masticate as hundreds of 20-foot-tall "nodding donkeys" suck up oil and gas from deposits 2 miles down. Oxy's pumps are gray with red tops--a well-gauger might describe his day as having been spent "chasing redheads." North winds whip up dust from truck tires crunching on the work roads. A storm-chasing group issues a flaming-tumbleweed warning. That's no joke to Vicki Hollub, the chief executive officer of Occidental. Just 5-foot-5, Hollub strides with authority to a lineup of nervous roughnecks, all men. She shakes … [Read more...] about The Changing Face Of Big Oil
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Makeup is bought, these days, online. With so many brands on the market, we depend entirely on product photography to see and understand a product—whether it’s a pair of jeans, a necklace, or a tube of fire engine red lipstick. But some photographers, like Miami-based photographer Tsour Lee Adato create click-worthy, buyable images that sell makeup, perfume and jewelry with his company, Pro Photo Studio . DTC brands reach their audience entirely based on their choice of good photography and video—and often, art supplies, hair dryers and post-production tricks are used to make them look magical. In fact, Adato’s Tiktok account, @productphotography has been gaining steam for taking us behind the Wizard of Oz’s curtain, so to speak, when it comes to seeing how these images are made, behind the scenes in his Florida photo studio. “People are looking online, and they are buying with their eyes,” said Adato. … [Read more...] about Behind-The-Scenes Tricks Product Photographers Use to Sell Makeup
