Links to Look At

Yes, it’s that time once again – time for me to drop in with some reading suggestions. Thankfully, job seeking – as well as launching a new socially good-oriented tech blog – has kept me busy.  Also had a great interview yesterday,  and I was able to hang out last week with some of my...

The Joys of Co-Working

The Joys of Co-Working
Sometimes, being in a freelance state of mind definitely has its benefits. Awhile ago, I received an e-mail from a pal who is seeking work after being a stay-at-home-dad. He had suggested a small group of us who were seeking work in unique niches pool our resources – that way, we could share leads, network... Read more »

The Benefits of Uncommon Wisdom

The Benefits of Uncommon Wisdom
One of the relative advantages of freelancing is that it provides more time for reading (at least, sitting in the comfort of my apartment rather than on the bus or train). I’ve been making more of an effort to read business-oriented books; part of it is wanting to broaden my mind (after all, I’m used... Read more »

Your Pre-Valentine's Day Networking Post

Your Pre-Valentine's Day Networking Post
There’s an old saying – “When one door closes, another door opens….but it’s a hell of a hallway.” And I feel like I’ve been in the hallway for awhile. It’s less about worrying about an income (my sole freelance client is providing plenty of work) and more about moving forward. I have been submitting my... Read more »

My Hyphenated Job Search

My Hyphenated Job Search
Like my fellow job stalker Brendan, I’m entering another year’s worth of unemployment (although for me, it’s year # 2). But in all honesty, it’s not as dramatic….after all, I’ve been able to keep afloat, and then I realized (and by “realized” I mean “came to a conclusion after reading several online articles”) that career...

To Temp Or Not To Temp.....

To Temp Or Not To Temp.....
This has been a relatively lively week – my current freelance work for a local business development agency has expanded, including some grant writing/research work and consultation on their Facebook pages. However, I did lose a major corporate assignment, which leads me to ponder one question in my job search…. To Temp or Not To Temp... Read more »

Some LinkedIn strategies ...

by Nan Palmero – http://t.co/oerHKCO This week we have another post from “co-JobStalker” Gordon Dymowski, with his advice on using LinkedIn.  Hope you find this helpful! — As the newest addition to the “Job Stalker” family, I am finding that I’m hitting a relative lull in my job activities – no recent calls for freelance...

I've been told I read too much Twitter ...

OK … so another week where I’ve been almost full-time between various projects.  It’s great to have folks “buying my time”, but I’m not used to the freelance/ consulting thing and the concept that I could be back to zero at any given moment hovers heavily overhead!  Fortunately, the one that’s sucking up the most...

Insert SEO-friendly title here ...

OK, so I’m being cranky.  However, it does bug me that most of the searches that find this blog end up pulling up pieces that the previous Job Stalker wrote, nearly two years ago!  We get a daily report on these, so I see what search terms are getting people in here, but do you... Read more »

Some links to get you through the weekend ...

Wow … sort of had a “last minute” situation here today, as I didn’t snag the last few of these until late in the day. I’d been distracted by (paying) projects this week, which is a Good Thing, of course, but it meant that I didn’t have much time to spend communing with Twitter. I... Read more »
