Somewhat ironically (maybe?) my friend Hannah Morgan, also known as @CareerSherpa, posted a blog yesterday acknowledging that it is important to take credit where credit is due, about the best way to keep track of your accomplishments at work. For those of us who aren’t about tooting our own horn, this is a good reminder.
Why is Hannah’s timing ironic? It was posted the same day that Monster.com announced “The Monster 11 for 2011: Career Experts Who Can Help Your Job Search.” I was thrilled and flattered to be named to the list, along with my good friends Hannah and Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter (@valueintowords) as well asÃ‚Â colleagues: Heather Huhman (@heatherhuhman) (all also of the Career Collective), Penelope Trunk (@brazencareerist), Eve Tahmincioglu (who tweets in rhyme @careerdiva), J.T. O’Donnell (@careerealism), Chris Perry (@careerrocketeer), Donna Svei (@avidcareerist), Abby Kohut (@absolutely_abby) and Louise Fletcher (@louise_fletcher).
As Monster notes, there are many, many other great career pros who write and tweet advice for job seekers. (Be sure to follow the #CareerCollective hashtag for some of them!) I am proud to have been named on this list with these terrific colleagues. I’ll use this post to help me track my accomplishment, as Hannah suggests. Have you considered creating a blog or website to help you track and share your milestone career moments? Contact me….I am creating a product to help you do just that – even if you don’t know anything about starting a blog or creating a site!
Monster suggests you follow them on Twitter: @HotJobs_editor or @MonsterCareers, where they often reference these and other career experts’ work! Also, be sure to check out Monster’s HR and Recruitment Bloggers top 11 for 2011 list. It was exciting to see so many of my Twitter friends and colleagues listed there.
