How to Launch a Career With Your Blog
Can your blog really launch the career of your dreams?
Leslie Taylor (FastCompany) says yes.
I agree with her, but not because it launched me in to a new career. Rather, it's given my career an additional tool to reach out to the job-seeking community. It was my Christmas present to myself in December 2004. That's when I decided to start plugging in and posting about my passion: recruiting - work- jobs - wireless.
The result? Recruiter's Dumping Ground, which became Talent Bloggers, which morphed in to Career Builder's Blog, which brings us to the present: WirelessJobs.com.
That decision also created some new friendships and introduced me to the likes of a few people in the blogging community:
Recruiting.com - Recruiting Bloggers - The Recruiting Edge - ERE - Jobster - CollegeRecruiter.com, et al.
But most importantly, it put me in touch with the likes of you, the job-seeking public.
So, here's to blogging - new careers for some; new relationships for others.
