How Blogging Can Help You Get a New Job

Since we have been discussing Blogging so much lately, and today is positivity day, let’s briefly discuss this article in today’s WSJ: How Blogging Can Help You Get a New Job:

"Corporate recruiters have long surfed the Web to vet potential hires, but now they are also surfing blogs to unearth job candidates, expanding their talent pool and gaining insights they say they can’t get from résumés and interviews…

Job seekers who blog increase the odds that a potential employer will find information online that the candidate wants to be seen, says Debbie Weil, a corporate blogging consultant in Washington and the author of "The Corporate Blogging Book," which was published last summer. "Everybody has an online identity whether they know it or not, and a blog is the single best way to control it," she says. "You’re going to be Googled. No one hires anyone or buys anything these days without going online first and doing research."

Anyone looking for a job? Feel free to post a request in comments, and link back to your own blog; The Big Picture’s Google score will (slightly) increase the odds of your own blog coming up in a search.

Example: If I were to use this blog to seek employment, I would point interviewers to this post On Line Trading: A Business Plan for the future, and to the CV here

Now you go . . .
