Blog Your Way into a New Career

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008
It's amazing where blogging can lead you. My colleague, Amanda Mooney , and I recently found ourselves in new jobs, largely credited to our participation in the blogosphere and other social platforms. Your resume won't give you a voice. The first thing you should have on your resume under contact information is a link to your blog or website. Sometimes I feel like having a blog is my little secret to opening doors to opportunities that once seemed unattainable. And the more I discuss this with other bloggers, the more I begin to see that I am not the only one experiencing it. Yes, maintaining a blog and building relationships with other bloggers takes time and commitment, but the rewards, from the first realization that someone is actually listening to the possibility of life-changing opportunities, are well worth it.
