Something you should check out …

Hello residual, hard-core The Job Stalker readers. As I’ve detailed in previous posts, this blog is not dead, but it is in something like a long-term hiatus until we (which I guess means “I”), find a new main writer for it. However, it still floats around my mental space, and if I see something that... Read more »

Another online-reputation scare …

Hey … how are all you doing? Since things around The Job Stalker have sort of slid back to me, I have been keeping an eye out for interesting things to drop in here from time-to-time. Today I ran across something along those lines, so I’m back in your blogosphere. The piece in question is... Read more »

Are you interested in the glamorous blogging field?

Well … so here we are. Frankly, I’d sort of moved on from being The Job Stalker, having felt that I’d passed the reins along to others. However, they have moved on as well, which is why there’s not been a post in this space in quite a while, just about four months by the... Read more »

Links to Look At

Yes, it’s that time once again – time for me to drop in with some reading suggestions.

The Double-Edged Sword of Freelancing

The Double-Edged Sword of Freelancing
In all honesty…I should have seen this coming.fore It’s an exchange that I’m having a bit more frequently when interviewing for full time positions. Without being too specific, the conversation usually tends to go a little something like this: THEM: It looks like you’re currently freelancing – why would you want to work full-time. ME:...

Networking: We're *Still* Doing It Wrong

Networking: We're *Still* Doing It Wrong
Almost six  months ago, I wrote about the ways in which job seekers might be harming themselves when networking.  Granted, it was a very simple note….but in the intervening months, I’ve come across some other major faux pas. So for this week’s guest post, I’m going to focus on some further ways – both major... Read more »
