Meetups and Tweetups and Stuff - Oh, My!

Meetups and Tweetups and Stuff - Oh, My!
One of the advantages – and disadvantages – to living in a city like Chicago is that there are plenty of opportunities to network. I’m not talking about the kind of high-level, cocktail-party events that are held on a nightly basis – you know, the kind that brag about getting 1,000 RSVPs into a 100-person... Read more »

Menu of Food For Thought

Menu of Food For Thought
For my usual guest-post this week, I’m going to be focusing on several items of interest, mostly to generate some conversation, engage in a little self-promotion, and hopefully, provide some online reading pleasure. And to paraphrase Jackie Gleason, away we go! As part of my Chicago Net Tuesday organizing duties, I’m often asked to participate... Read more »

Speaking of networking events ...

As you know, I try to make it out to 2-4 networking events per week, to keep myself “in front of” folks that I already know, and meeting others that I haven’t yet.  And, as I’ve noted, there are several very useful resources out there which list many hundreds of events every week in the...

Some "superific" networking ...

It’s been a while (I think) since I’ve updated what I’ve been doing in terms of networking, perhaps due to being somewhat abashed at my networking vs. what’s being recommended in the various books I’ve covered here.  I guess if I was one of those guys with a defined career path from which I could...

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...

Out of sequence, out of town ...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/bionicteaching/3676501465/ I thought I had a really great post lined up for this Wednesday.  One of the resources that I follow on Twitter had been “teasing” about a new e-book that was just chock-full of job search info, with a number of guest authors, and was going to be coming out yesterday.  I don’t know...

Things you should have read ...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/24oranges/4216172526/ OK, so maybe “should have read” ought to be “might want to read”, after all, few people plow through so much on-line content as I do in a week (yes, primarily to have stuff to pass along to you here, although, obviously, it’s useful to me as well), but these are things that came...

Networking and research ...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/ccacnorthlib/4131839908/ Well, I got back on the Networking horse this week, with two fairly interesting events.  Neither of these were “home runs” for my job search, but they at least got me out into public again.  Frankly, on Wednesday night I had a choice of three events that seemed on-target to choose from.  As I’ve...

Where to go, what to read ...

It’s been a couple of rough weeks around chez Job Stalker … having gone from the excitement of  several phone interviews in a row (“They like me!!!”) to deafening silence for weeks at a time.  I got totally blind-sided on one of them, where the recruiter had told me that he was only doing phone...

Never enough hours in the day ...

Photo: Griszka Niewiadomski It’s a sad commentary on how brutal the job search has become, but I’m aching to get a job just so that I have some time off.  Admittedly, I’m probably more “obsessive” about this than the average guy, but I fill very nearly every waking hour with something related to the job...
