One ironic thing about writing my book, Social Networking for Career Success, is the more writing I did for the book, the more difficult it was to put together a blog. I didn’t want to share the same information I was writing in the book, and my inspirations for blogs were running low. Now that I’m promoting the book, I’ve been concentrating my efforts on trying to highlight contributors and blogging on the book’s website!
Here are some recent blog posts I’ve added to the book’s blog. I hope you’ll click through and take a look!
Highlighting contributors Tasti-D-Lite (@tastidlite) and Pizzeria Venti (@pvatl), this post reminds readers of key considerations when thinking about using social media to grow a business
This post highlights Chris Russell (@chrisrussell) and Susan P. Joyce (@jobhuntorg), experts on job boards and online job hunting. While job boards aren’t generally considered social media sites, they are an important part of many job seekers’ strategies, so I tapped my network of experts for advice for you. Also, learn how to use job boards to help you research and prepare your pitch.
Chris interviewed me for a podcast on the topic of social media for job seekers. You can listen to the podcast by visiting the link HERE.
This features my friend Hannah Morgan (@careersherpa), who noted, “Twitter, more than any other social media tool, enabled me to establish a recognizable presence and brand online. I highly recommend that everyone — even job seekers and business owners who do not have an interest in blogging — experiment with Twitter.” I agree with Hannah – I love how Twitter helped me connect and become friends with many colleagues and contacts. It’s an amazing resource for job seekers and business owners, which is why I devote three chapters to it in my book!
