They are good hubs, richsim! I noticed there wasn't a comment box on the *Persuasion* hub but I gave you a thumbs up you are doing great!
I read all of your Hubs.. I think the content is very good, original, rich. Here are some suggestions.
1) Start each hub with a very succinct paragraph about what the hub is about and some statements to draw the reader in- like a headline. It's kind of there now- but could be more specific and powerful.
2) Definitely need some pictures to separate the text. I've taken a bunch of my own with a digital camera, so I don;t have to worry about copyright issues. You could do that as well..
3) Add videos from You Tube. There are a lot of relevant ones available.
4) Make sure you RSS feeds match the hub topic. I noticed one on there about interviewing tips, but the links had international news stories.
You are off to a great start. Good luck with your hubs.
I think your hubs seem interesting, and well-written, but they aren't really for me. Your one about getting to the person who recruits, for example - I am the person who screens applications at work, and the examples of speech you give seem far too smarmy to me.
“Mr. Smith, thru some personal research I have learned that your company is progressive, solid and enjoys a fine reputation. It’s the type of company I would like to work for. I would like to make an appointment to speak with you. Would tomorrow morning be convenient or would after lunch be better for you?”
That is far too pushy, and too full-on. I'd not be interested.
Many companies and industries have recruitment proceedures, and trying to by-pass them is counter-productive.
Have you removed your hubs? Because when I clicked on them I was taken to a page that said;
"Sorry that hub does not exist."

Having been here for fifteen months now, I've yet to receive my first cheque from Adsence or Amazon. Just this morning, thanks to advice in a Hub written by the Bard of Ely, I altered the layout of my Hubs so that they no longer began with an image or video. Here's hoping this improves...

Hello!I just joined Hubpages a few days ago. I've produced a few hubs at this point, and I'd like to know if I'm on the right track. I can already say that my use of pictures needs some work - I'm still doing some research on how to find them legally. Any and all comments/critiques/suggestions are...

I just happened to be viewing one of my hubs that has been deemed a sleeper, and I noticed that the Amazon and Ebay advertisements in the capsules displayed on the hub has been increased in size. This alarms me, as I have many hubs with various text capsules with these capsules within that...

I am ridiculously poor in English and never tried to write a poem in English prior to join hubpages. Now I am very interested to know about my writing ability. What do you think? What I have written is anything worth to be called poem or they are just rubbish? Please let me know. Will I carry on or...

Would any of you suggest 'reporting' an obvious newbie who has obviously not read anything of the rules and protocols here, whose profile includes no bio and indicates having joined but 2 hours prior, and whose portfolio includes but a single, very short and very poorly written hub?I'm not even...

In terms of philosophy or theology something like this:X is a mistaken position for reasons A,B,C. This Hub is an example of that position, lets do a point by point dissection of it (while not infringing on copyright) while pointing out the problems in their reasoning.Is that doable? Will it get...
