Giving Notice and Moving On....
It’s the one subject I haven’t covered yet….but now, it seems all too timely. First, this is going to be my final guest post for Job Stalker - I have already e-mailed Brendan (did so two weeks ago). I wish I could say that I’ve found a steady gig, but I’ve been fortunate enough to keep... Read more »

The Golden Rule of Job Search Burnout

The Golden Rule of Job Search Burnout
I know, I know, you didn’t see my weekly guest post last week….but I have a good excuse. Actually, several. First, I had three – count them, three, phone interviews in the past few weeks. Fortunately, they came just before a really nasty cold last Tuesday, providing me with a great opportunity to get some... Read more »

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...

Right now, I’m in a semi-regular position with the job search – I’m coasting on some freelance work (lost out on a potential fun job, but continuing to seek more clients); questioning whether I truly am “unemployed” based on a friend’s comment (my answer – I’m probably more underemployed than employed); and resenting those who...

Through A Glass Door (Dot Com) Brightly

Through A Glass Door (Dot Com) Brightly
Occasionally, there will be a unique confluence of events – things happen which seem a little too convenient to be coincidental, but not enough to seem forced. So when I discovered Glassdoor just a few weeks before being asked to write about it by a blogging pal of mine…..it just seemed natural for me to... Read more »

The hidden job market ...
I’m strangely excited to be able to bring you an actual job search book this week!  As enthusiastic as I’ve been for the various Social Media releases that I’ve been featuring here, I do realize that these are not as to-the-point for everybody else’s job search as they are for mine.  The current book, Donald...

Somewhat back to normal ...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/katerha/5013886721/ So, as regular readers of this space know, this has been a bit of a topsy-turvy week, with last weekend having the links and the book feature (such as the latter’s been of late) flipped, and then my being out of town mid-week for the 140 Character Conference, from which I attempted a bit...

Have it your way ...

This week we’re taking a look at Mark Jeffries’ The Art of Business Seduction: A 30-Day Plan to Get Noticed, Get Promoted, and Get Ahead  … usually I have a problem with those long title/subtitle combinations, but in this case it certainly helps (as “The Art of Business Seduction” by itself just brings up the...

A Chicago institution ...

Those following this blog will recall that one of the main reasons that I got The Job Stalker assignment was that I’m in my third major job-search in the past 10 years.  After my publishing company faltered (it was a long slow death), I went back to school to learn web development and related programming,...
