Well, isn't that nice ...

While I’m not a “jobs pro”, just another guy “in the trenches” of a job-search war within a really awful economy, I do try hard to make these blitherings of use to those of you out there who read this blog.  And, I’m certainly not above “ego-involvement” in it, so when The Job Stalker gets...

Oh ... ooops!

Ya know … I had something good-to-go for Monday, but it wasn’t really a “book thing” so I was iffy about using it, and then I heard from Gordon that he wasn’t going to have something ready for Wednesday, so I figured I’d use the thing I had sitting here (another “guest post”) for that. ...

Links and musings ...

Well, I’m afraid I’m going to subject you all to another round of navel-gazing, as I don’t have anything substantive (well, except for the links below … it is Friday, after all) framed up for this post.  As folks know, I’ve had a lot of consulting/freelance work come through over the past few months, and...

Considering "Job Clubs" ...

We’ve got another entry from “co-Job Stalker” Gordon Dymowski today.  Interestingly, he’s taking up the subject of “job clubs”, a concept that I’d just encountered in reading the Mark Bolles book that I covered last week.  Needless to say, I found this of interest, and I hope you will too! — One of my greatest...

When the hours aren't enough ...

OK, got another dozen links for you today.  I have to tell you, though, how hard it is to keep up with the level of Twitter reading that I used to do to get at least this many stories to pass along each week!  Since a large chunk of my hours are “spoken for” these... Read more »

Collected from my recent reading ...

Photo by Jeremy Wrenn. I really wish I had some good excuses to make aside from “I’ve been busy” that I’ve not been writing in here, but that’s pretty much the core of it.  The project that was, back in December, looking to take up about a quarter of my time has almost gotten to... Read more »

Looking for some stability ...

Well, it’s nice to have a co-author on board for this blog, and I expect that Gordon will be able to keep some interesting material flowing in here.  Frankly, I’m a bit of a mess at the moment, as the project that’s taking up about a half of my time is still not a “done... Read more »

Into the Void ...

Hey there, The Job Stalker readers … I realize that there’s been a big gap here.  I don’t know if it’s just a low-level depression messing with my long-standing daily habits, or just the conflicts presented by a bunch of (some paying) projects, but I’ve been so “out of the loop” for things applicable to...

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...

Choosing absence over pointlessness ...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/hinkelstone/2765597758/ What?  It’s Friday again?  So soon?  Yeah, I missed two posts, having had nothing “bookish” to offer up on Monday nor anything “industryesque” to feature on Wednesday, and being “all full up” with billable hours on freelance/consulting projects (which is a Good Thing, of course), I opted to go silent rather than sleepily tap-dance...
