  • Ready to apply? First it's time to create a Yahoo! worthy portfolio. Your portfolio is the best way to flaunt both your talent and experience. That's why we've put together the following tips and tricks sure to help you cook-up a down right tasty portfolio.Make your portfolio user friendly:The people reviewing your portfolio are busy, so make sure your design is clean, easy to navigate, and highlights your best work. Don't let your portfolio be the one project that ignores your user's needs. Give us all the goods:Final products are great, but we'd love to see how you got there. Wireframes on napkins, mood boards, personas, and rejected directions are our favorite things to look at. And may actually reveal more about you as a designer than the final piece. Check those expiration dates:Although we'd like to look at your design archives all the way back to crayon drawings on momma's fridge, your most recent work is most likely indicative of your current skill. So don't leave that out. Even if your brainchild was born out of wedlock, he's still cute:Include any and all projects that demonstrate your abilities, whether they were for an employer or just for yourself. If you don't have a lot of professional experience, take on some pro bono work on the side. Local charities and local coffee shops alike will be more than happy to accept some free web design work. Hey 007. Back away from the intellectual property:Remember to remove confidential and proprietary information. We're looking for ethical employees, not spies. If you're not proud of it, we won't be either:We've all had projects where we slapped "lipstick on a pig." In your portfolio, however, you should highlight projects where design was the competitive advantage that made it succeed. And what if you only have primped-up piglets? Then Yahoo! UED is the perfect place to take your portfolio from sty to stylin.

  • 2006- Published Guidelines for managers of transgender employees to address delicate issues like “which bathroom to use”____________________________Over the past few years, Yahoo! has solidified our position as an employer of choice in the LGBT community: Did you know that it is still legal in 31 states to fire someone simply because they are gay or lesbian? In 2004, Yahoo! was among the first public companies to support federal legislation that would prohibit employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. This month, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which also includes protection for transgender employees, is expected to reach Congress for a vote. Yahoo! and more than 45 other major corporations have called on Congress to pass this legislation.In 2006, Yahoo! added “gender identity” to our global non-discrimination policy to protect Transgender employees. We also published guidelines for managers of Transgender employees, to help address some delicate issues like, “which bathroom should I use?” or “when can I change the name and photo on my company badge?”In 2007, Yahoo! featured a beloved organization, Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) on our LGBT Pride site and we will make a $10,472 donation to the Point Foundation, in the name of our audience, who submitted 10,472 Worldwide Pride photos to our site.What’s next? We’ll continue our annual tradition of handing out National Coming Out Day pins on our campuses, this October 11. These pins have become a collectors’ item over the years. We’re also sponsoring the annual Reaching Out LGBT MBA Conference for the 4th consecutive year, this October.
