I caught sight of this old tabloid press article the other day, charting some British chap’s discovery of some new-fangled thing called the Internet, whatever that was. Well, of course, it never took off.
As someone currently residing in the United States, and with the promise of another televised Presidential debate hanging in the offing, this article was a well-timed observation. According to the New York Times, Americans are going barmy over Britishisms. Actually, ‘Britishisms’ is a new word to me. Is it surely not ‘Anglicisms’? Anyway. Enjoy.
This infographic is of particular interest to me, as someone who spends their working life between South-East England and the US West Coast. According to a study by LinkedIn, and based on the data of job seekers within their network, the most desirable location in the world to seek work is San Francisco. This isn’t surprising given the burgeoning success of the Tech sector. It’s backed up by a strong showing from the UK, which leads Europe in terms of desirability and opportunity.
On the face of it, things look rosy for me as a freelance Technology copywriter. But with desirability of course, comes intense competition – so I’ll continue to do the best job I can for all those I work with.
If you’re looking for copywriting support within the Technology sector, at home or abroad, please give me a call!
