A look behind the lines ...

Hello, regular readers of The Job Stalker … today I may be “testing your patience” a bit, as I’m going to be discussing a book that not only is not about the job search it’s not even particularly targeted to a general audience.  However, as I worked my way through it, one thing really stood...

Live from Detroit ...

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/51/FillmoreDetroitmarqueedaylight.jpg OK, so I’m writing this (live) in Detroit (at the 140 Character Conference), but by the time you’re reading this, it will have been edited, linked, and uploaded, so it’s not so much “live blogging” as, well, something else.  You may recall that I’d been off at a TweetUp when Jeff Pulver came through...

Another week, another month ...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/fugue/889813550/ OK, it’s Friday … and I’ve got a bunch of good links for you today.  As I noted last week, my “old/good” computer semi-miraculously is back from the dead, and this is making my days FAR more efficient (grabbing Twitter is at least twice as fast, for example, and even reading it is quicker...

Revisiting recent themes ...

Those of you not into “personal branding”, “social media”, and the web in general (although I can’t imagine that I’d have been able to keep many of the latter sort of readers around for long, given my focus on the job search via Twitter!) will be happy to hear that this is likely the last...

Using video ...

Since I’ve been featuring my book reviews in here, I’ve had a number of “communication channels” open up with various publishers.  When I contacted Wiley for a copy of Chris Brogan’s book a while back, their representative asked if I’d be interested in another book as well, Steve Garfield’s Get Seen: Online Video Secrets to...

A Tale of Two Gurus ...

Yes, it’s Monday, and it’s time for another book feature. Usually I get to these hot on the heels of having read them, however this one’s been sitting around for a month since I finished reading it and posted my review.  The reasons for this will be dealt with later, but I first want to...

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...
