USP means Useful Selling Proposition

This is a slang that has been advertised and hyped so much that virtually it has entered into the Human Resources department of all the companies. So as of now, USP means a lot. I can remember, in one interview with Microsoft at a very initial stage of my career, the interviewer was impressed my a mere fact that I have heard about this term. This story is of 2007, and we have come a long distance now!

(Unfortunately, I didn't made that interview ;) Countless stories, and millions of more reasons to smile back everyday :) :)

Let me go on with the formal definition of USP now. So, apart from the internet terms like Universal Service Provider, or Ultra Sensory Perception, or US Pharmacopoeia, what has this to do with Interviews, jobs, and marketing?

The answer is pretty simple. Look at the following full forms. All of them means the same, but at different places, different ones are used. I somehow propogate and use the first one. The usage over the internet and literature tells the full-form used at different places are in following order of publicity.

Useful Selling Proposition

Unique Selling Point

Unique Selling Proposition

Useful Selling Point


Definition of USP by Enterpreneur.Com: The factor or consideration presented by a seller as the reason that one product or service is different from and better than that of the competition.

The term USP is generally used in the marketing field. Nowadays, it has also been adopted in selling oneself in Job Interviews. It simply means enlisting the qualities that makes your product, service, or yourself, unique from the others. It ensures as to why the person should employ you, and not the others. Sadiyah Ozair, once described USP as those properties that make you proclaim that you are different and more useful. Obviously, Anwar-Sadiyah Unification tells that I had some USPs. ;)

So, start summarising your USP now. You may grab some pin-pointers from the list as follows:
Your Creativity
Experience
Skills and arts
Meticulous
Talented
Inter-personal Skills
Internet Skills
Your Network
Companies you worked for
Clients you faced
Communication Skills
Languages known
Diversity of technologies
Adaptability to change
Prizes and certificates
Educational Background
Internships, can be good USP
Cultural Exposures
Stabilty and Reliabilty...
And the list goes on.

Covmerge : Merging two Bullseye Code coverage reports

Merge or combine two .COV Files
Bullseye is a nice tool for Code coverage computation. And I have been using it for quite some years now. There is a pretty nice feature about bullseye utility which we tend to forget in our day to day work with it.
This feature of Bullseye you should know. It is the ability to merge reports.


This is pretty useful when you have one report from your unit tests and one from some other type of test run. Particularly useful in following scenarios:
Merge two Bullseye reports .cov files together
how to Merge Bullseye code coverage reports gathered from different test runs
Merging Blackbox test automation code coverage reports with White box API Unit testcase coverage report

Whatever be your objective, Use this command to merge reports with Bullseye:
covmerge.exe -c -fMerged.cov file1.cov file2.cov

Obviously, for this command to Work, the bullsye installation directory path must be in your environment variables. ;)

Tell me how did you use this utility.
For more tutorials on Bullseye, see my earlier posts. You can read details, download the tutorial and software directly from BullsEye Official Website
