Iâ€™ve heard that I should use blogs for my job search. Why is that?
Blogging is still a little controversial and difficult for some people to â€œget intoâ€ but it really can add a new tool to your job search kit.
For a job seeker, a blog:
Gives examples that you can write clearly, persuasively, with humor or otherwise
Proves you have subject matter expertise
Attests to your knowledge of technology
Demonstrates your skills or talents
How do you find blogs?
ïƒ˜Â Blog search engines
ïƒ˜Â Directories such as Blogarama or Blogwise, etc
ïƒ˜Â Read articles about successful blogging
ïƒ˜Â Look at the blogrolls of reputable job search authors
ïƒ˜Â See blogs listed on networking sites
Like any other one method you use for your job search though, donâ€™t spend too much time reading blogs.Â Stay focused on the end result you want: A satisfying, productive job.
