So many events, so little time ...

Sorry to have not gotten out a mid-week post here … I had planned one that was focusing on a couple of events this week (including a job fair), but I got swamped by events and by the time I was able to “pull the trigger” on that,  it would have been “old news” (or... Read more »

The issue of trust ...

As I’ve noted previously, I spend vast amounts of time on Twitter in pursuit of job leads, information, and articles to share in this blog.  When I first started using Twitter (before my current unemployment), it was because I saw it as an amazing way to get information on the activities and interests of key...

Links for the week ...

Another busy week, although I don’t quite have as many links for you as usual (things that might have ended up in this list have been, as you may have noticed, being spun off into their own posts!).  I had a couple of very interesting networking events, a meeting of the Evanston Chamber of Commerce...

Delving deeper ...

Doing something a little bit different today … I had three URLs that I was considering for the weekly “link dump”, but each was a resource for a particular area rather than an article or blog post, and I figured: why not feature them together. http://www.flickr.com/photos/somegeekintn/ / CC BY 2.0 Now, one caveat before we...

Miscellania ...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/marxalot/ / CC BY-SA 2.0 So, this is where I’d “typically” have a book review and author interview feature, and had been expecting to have a particular book featured here both of the past two Mondays.  As noted, I’d been dealing with the Author’s “people” previously and had hit a point of no response from...

Research, research, and more research ...

Sorry for this missing its usual Friday slot, but my day totally got away from me, and I eventually found myself asleep at the keyboard at 4am!  I’m sure nobody reading this really cares about the details, but I’m still dealing with computer issues, and have been also dealing with an exploding Twitter list, and...

Bits & Pieces ...

So, I guess I should have saved one of those posts from last week to run this week!  I’d actually planned to have another author interview this Monday, but there was a “communications breakdown” with that, and now I’m hoping that it will be in-hand in time to run next Monday … it’s a good...

More links from Twitter ...

Got another bunch of links for you this Friday.  As previously noted (for those just coming in now), I spend as much as eight hours a day reading through the hundreds of Twitter folks’ post on my “follow” list, which includes job boards, “career experts”, people from industries I’ve been involved in, and others I’ve...

Organizing your time ...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/k6mmc/ / CC BY 2.0 One of the challenges for the job seeker is keeping their days organized.  Opinions vary on how one should have one’s day scheduled (from those who encourage taking personal time during the day to those who are totally “nose to the grindstone”), but it really does help to have some...

The value of a word ...

I recently read a blog entry that made me think.  A lot. It is, on its surface, about journalists, so is, perhaps fairly “narrow focus” for this vehicle, but it brought up so many other issues about the current value of work, that I decided that I’d do a The Job Stalker entry about it,...
