ABOUT ME – HAKKIMDA

Welcome to my website!

This website, in the vast world of internet, is a little place of mine in which I freely share my ideas on various topics that I find interesting and worth sharing. At the moment, topics are not focused; they range from photography to free sources of internet. However, it is a reflection of my own background, so it makes sense in itself. I’ve studied philosophy at Boğaziçi University and did my master in Sociology. Meanwhile, I followed my interest in media arts and worked as a freelancer in media production including directing and taking photos for various occasions. I am mostly active on Instagram so you can catch up with me there. I walk around the streets of Istanbul, visit museums, take photos and share them.

There are lots to write on this website; important notes on the books I read, the historical background of the places I visit, inspirational works of artists, truly great sources on the internet that you can utilize from etc. I hope to create time for all of it. Meanwhile, feel free to share your thoughts, criticisms or suggestions under the articles I post..

Google’a girmek isteyen adaylarda aranan 4 önemli özellik

Google’a girmek isteyen adaylarda aranan 4 önemli özellik

Google ilk zamanlarda Amerika’nın en iyi üniversitelerinden başvuru yapan adaylara öncelik veriyordu- muhtemelen prosedür olarak çok daha etkili bir sonuç alındığı düşündükleri için. Fakat Google insan kaynakları yöneticisi Laszlo Bock’ın belirttiği üzere bu yaklaşımın zaman geçtikçe oldukça hatalı olduğu ortaya çıktı.

Bock CNN’e, Kaliforniya devlet okullarında ve diğer üniversitelerde hedeflerine ulaşmak için canla başla çalışan fevkalade öğrencilerin olduğunu belirtti.

Bir diğer önemli nokta da Google’ın üniversite not ortalamasına ağırlıklı olarak önem vermemesi. Bock, üniversite ders notlarının kariyerin ilk iki yılında nasıl bir performans gösterileceğini işaret eden önemli ölçüler olduğunu ama nihayetinde çok da bir öneme sahip olmadığını belirtiyor.

Pek çok mezun dünyanın en iyi çalışma mekanlarından birini sunan Google’da çalışmak için ilginç yöntemlere başvuruyor. Bock, kapıdan içeri adım atabilmek için CV’sini ayakkabısının içine sokandan ya da geldiğinde kendini imha eden robot gönderenine kadar pek çok farklı adayla karşılaşmış. Tavsiyesi ise adayların CV’lerinde yaptıkları en iyi işlere yer vermeleri. Bock, bu işlerin inceleneceğini belirtiyor.

Bock’ın yeni çıkan Work Rules! Adlı kitabında da Google’un işe alımlarda 4 önemli faktöre dikkat ettiğini yazıyor;

  1. Bilişsel yetenek ya da problem çözme yeteneği.
  2. Gerektiğinde öne atılıp gerektiğinde geri çekilmenizi sağlayan liderlik vasfı,
  3. Şirketin kendine has bir terimi olan ‘Googleyness’
  4. Entelektüel tevazu.

En az öneme sahip şey ise iş yapmayı biliyor olup olmamanız.

Defne Data secures contract in Kuwait

September 15, 2008, Monday/Published at Today’s Daily News

Defne Data Processing, a solutions provider for telecom operators in many countries, including Turkey, has signed a new project with Media Phone Plus, Kuwait’s leading mobile entertainment services company. The project, called “Value-Added Service Platform,” which is planned to be an entertainment service for landline and mobile networks, will be put into operation in many Middle East countries in addition to Kuwait beginning in October 2008. Competitions, polls and chat rooms are some of the planned services.

Defne Data Processing General Manager Oğuz Haliloğlu said: “Entertainment services are in high demand from consumers, and they increase revenue for mobile operators. … As such, the diversification of services plays an important role in promoting brand names and contributes greatly to operator revenues.”

Defne has planned various projects in more than 15 countries in addition to Turkey. “Since the competition is getting very fierce among operators, value-added services provide an edge for mobile operators,” Haliloğlu said.  According to Haliloğlu, the importance of value-added services will increase much more when third-generation networks and virtual operators take a place in our lives. He says, “Video feed call center services, mobile TV and interactive commercials are among the value-added services that will be available with the third-generation networks.”
