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...

Links to Help With Post-Olympic Withdrawal

Links to Help With Post-Olympic Withdrawal
This week, have to admit – I’m in a bit of a creative lull. Reading a job-related book for review for the next few weeks; several key networking events (including a breakfast and meetup on Thursday), and I’m starting to gain some traction in terms of freelance work. (Still plugging away at the job search,... Read more »

Getting Schooled in Non-Profit Job Stalking

Getting Schooled in Non-Profit Job Stalking
Yes, I admit it – I sometimes listen and heed the advice of career coaches. One such piece of advice is to connect with my school’s alumni associations, and since I was a alumnus of Loyola here in Chicago (getting both my bachelor’s and master’s while attending classes in three different classes), I took advantage...

A need to read ...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/kthbiblioteket/4362639628/ Wouldn’t that make a great title for a very limited-action movie?  Yeah, sometimes my week’s like that.  I have a few less links this week than I’d prefer (even with “holding over” some from last week), because I was out of the office at a client’s location twice this week … and somehow, if...

These are dark days ...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/arasmus/3629191339/ I do try to keep this about “the job search” rather than my job search, but I’m now 14 months into “pounding the pavement”, and sometimes that feels like a total waste.  I got a one-two punch over the past couple of days, hearing back from that recruiter (who was so sure that my...

Well, there you go ...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/julyyu/311846814/ I guess I should just give up trying to make sense of the Twitter data flow, at least in relation to the limited amount of time that I’ve been able to give it in the waning days of the Census (I did get renewed for the next phase, but it should only be another...

The best-laid schemes ...

So the Burns fans out there won’t burst with anticipation, “gang aft agley” might have made a better title, but figured the first part was a more familiar route for indicating the flow of this week. http://www.flickr.com/photos/hashir/936394705/ Once again, I’m looking at a fairly thin week in terms of number of articles to pass along...

Some weeks it pours ...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/eflon/3271730476/ This week had no good reason for having a full bunch of links to pass along to you, given the limited amount of time that I was able to interface with Twitter, but there was, especially in the early part of the week, quite the torrent of interesting job pieces, so I was up...

Some things you know ...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/heipei/3570609850/ Wow … another rough week.  I hate to be complaining in here about a job (albeit a temporary job that is paying less than half of what I’d need “a real job” to), but this Census gig is quite a grind.  I opted to take the 3rd shift posting there because I tend to...

I wish I was passing this on ...

The post earlier this week was my 60th entry as The Job Stalker, and when I signed up for this gig I never anticipated that I’d be still out of work at this point!  As I’ve noted, things have been up and down, with periods of a lot of hope (and interviews) and periods where... Read more »
