Every year in October, historic Franklin Street in Evansville, Indiana transforms from a bustling west side business district to a teeming smorgasbord of food booths and rides. The West Side Nut Club Fall Festival, now in its 96th year, attracts people from all over the Tri-State for food and fun. What was conceived in 1921 as a one-day street fair has evolved

These events have been the starting point for many different types of businesses, including some in the Evansville area.
You might expect that folks who work in the tech field are pretty tuned-in to the techy goodness that’s available out there. While yes, we love fuzzy slippers just as much as the next person, there are a few decidedly tech things on our list. We took an office poll and here are some of the most-asked-for tech gifts on our wish lists.
Our web design team took a road trip to a gathering of WordPress experts, advocates, fans, and professionals called WordCamp St. Louis. On any given week, we at Lieberman Technologies run the gamut from a kid with a new toy that he hasn’t figured out yet to diabolical web design genius, so WordCamp was a good thing for us.
Startup Weekend Evansville is part of a global network of events where people come and pitch a business idea on Friday night, work and sweat and learn all weekend, and Sunday night pitch the business plan. There is a panel of judges made up of local business and community leaders that pick the top three pitches. The winners get a variety of
Mention Google Easter Eggs around anybody that has used the Internet for a few years and you’ll probably get a quick response. Remember when they put Pac-Man on Google Maps? or My favorite is Atari Breakout! Yes, Google has been distracting us for years here at Lieberman, and that distraction has served to distract you today. Whether you are working a half
If you’re a recent (or soon-to-be) college graduate, you’re probably already on a quest for that all-important first job. You’re likely looking for employment in the field you majored in, and you’re better qualified than you ever have been thanks to your coursework and degree. That’s the good news.

In 2013, I became a Director at Lieberman Technologies, and I have to admit, that transition was harder than I expected.

That blog post enabled me to be fully committed to my new role as
If you have followed @tweetLTnow on Twitter or any of our employees on social media, you may have seen some of the recent fruit of our employee incentive program. A few years ago, Lieberman Technologies began an incentive program that allows our employees to earn Philbucks ($PB) for doing various things in the office. Here are a few examples: Bring in food to
(Or, How I learned to love the work day and throw my hour (hands) away.) When I started college at Indiana State University in Terre Haute, I worked at the campus radio station. What I learned there has stuck with me through every single job I’ve had since. We had a clock in the studio that didn’t have an hour hand–it only
Congratulations! You’ve landed an interview! It’s likely that you’ve gotten this far because you’ve paid attention and followed the rules the company has set forth for applying for the job. You’ve also put together a cover letter and resume that was appealing to someone at the company. (Or maybe you’re just following this thread to see if I finally say something intriguing.) Now that
In an earlier article, I shared what you have to do to gain consideration for an interview. With LT, Test #1 is the reasonably easy requirement that you submit a cover letter and resume using the instructions attached to the job posting. Surprisingly, less than 25% get this right. So, assuming that an applicant passed this test, now we’re looking at the details
