Hi Alexandra,

You have a great site! My name is Lisa, and I work with the website ZooCaro: http://www.zoocaro.com

I recently found your site and am very interested in exchanging links. As you know, reciprocal linking benefits both of us by raising our search rankings and generating more traffic to both of our sites. I am trying to help spread the word about our new College-Site.com site, which helps college grads find jobs. Please post a link to my Job Search site as follows:

Title: College-Site.com
URL: http://www.college-site.com/
Description: Helping College students and graduates connect with potential employers!

Once you've posted the link, let me know the URL of the page that it's on, and I will post it on our site.You can reply to me at izoocaro@gmail.com

Thank you very much,

Lisa

I'm sure you are excited about the previous comment on this post ;-)

This is fantastic and ties directly into a highly relevant issue in my world...marketing...education and equally important, innovative/creative thinking. I've got some posts coming out on this soon, but though Tom Friedman (who quoted Dan Pink) nailed it here:

This reminded me of a WSJ article this morning about states lowering the testing bar for proficiency tests:

I think the problem is apparent when employers are demanding more skills and education than American workers possess while our educational system demands less and less of our children, the future workforce. As long as other countries provide their children with superior and more rigorous education--particularly in math and science--we will continue to need to import skilled workers from those countries.

@Lisa: Thanks for the site suggestion. In the future, could you please direct these types of messages directly to me? Thanks!

@Jeremy: Thanks for sharing the Friedman piece. You know, I'm getting to know Dan Pink better these days. I admire him a great deal.

@Tom: I agree. I wish there was an easy solution. And thanks for pointing us over to our friends at the WSJ!

Alexandra,

This is a great article that addresses a serious issue in the American market.

We, at IvyExec.com, an online job site for highly qualified professionals, have been seeing a growing trend towards emerging markets.

In fact, 86% of our members hold and MBA from a top tier school. More and more foreign companies have been hiring from our pool resulting in emigration of highly educated American professionals.

It seems that the issue is not only education promotion, but also retention of the highly educated!

@Ana: Sounds like a great resource. Thanks for sharing.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
