Google to open retail stores to compete with Apple Stores. Only to compete with Apple Stores? They completely ignore the Microsoft Store’s across the country. The best thing about Google and their
entry into the retail arena, is that there are plenty of empty store fronts in the shopping malls across the country.

Google is launching retail stores by the end of the year to sell its own products we’re reporting over at 9to5Google. Will Google try to squeeze into the local Mall between the new Microsoft Store and the existing Apple Store? Will they be able to supplant some of Apple’s MacBook sales with their $249 Chromebooks? iPhones with Nexuses? Find out more.

I need work, paying work and I need it now. It’s very frustrating to want to be a contributing member of society, able to do so, and yet no business’s are hiring.
So, here’s my resume. I’ve got a general background in lots of different jobs and industries, and can certainly be a positive contribution to your enterprise.
I’ve no interest in speaking with recruiters or screeners for businesses. I need to speak with and have a conversation with the decision maker who has the power to hire now.
All of the autobots, and non responsive companies, more than 200, I’ve dealt with over the past few months are completely unprofessional in both a business and personal manner in their approach to hiring.
Contact me today and we can have a conversation about where I can support and contribute to your business, company or enterprise.
