NCET has launched a new job board designed to connect Nevada professionals with companies seeking assistance. The NCET job board can be utilized for any Nevada job — part-time or full-time, and from any sector. While NCET focuses on technology and entrepreneurship, the jobs don’t have to be tech, entrepreneur or startup in nature.
By now, most people are familiar with “The Cloud”. You use Apps for your smartphone; send and receive email and text messages; and, download movies to your television.

I think we can agree that positive word-of-mouth is one of the best marketing tools any business can have. To get this to work, you need what I like to call “war stories” that are affirming. These are customer experiences about doing business with you that are so compelling they want to share the story with their friends and colleagues. For that to happen, you truly need to have over-the-top customer service that consistently exceeds expectations. When I owned my printing franchise, we used an over-the-top guarantee with the tag line: It’s Right, It’s On Time or It’s Free. If the customer was not 100 percent happy with the job, we reprinted it for them and gave it to them for free. The same was true if we missed their due date; it was free.
The combination of a lower unemployment rate and increased number of jobs means employers now need to focus on retaining employees. As opportunities abound, employees are enticed to leave.

Polish start-ups hoping to break into the U.S. market will now have a place to do it in Reno. Governor Brian Sandoval and Polish officials based in Nevada held a ribbon-cutting ceremony last week for the Poland-Nevada Acceleration Space.

Small businesses and entrepreneurs aren’t certain where to go to take the next steps to launch a company that can create jobs, generate profits, and benefit customers throughout Northern Nevada and the rest of the world. They don’t know to whom they can turn to get them to the next level. For a decade, NCET has addressed this need with its annual Small Business Expo. The Expo provides entrepreneurs and small business owners with the practical knowledge, tactics, and the tools they need to start a business or spur the growth of an existing venture. In a single day during the Small Business Expo, business owners — and those who hope to launch a business — can visit with professionals, experts, and representatives of government agencies.
