Now for something completely different


We have to quit the SSDD approach. Same…Stuff, Different Day.

Miriam Salpeter, writing in On Careers on the US News website, says just slapping another resume on Monster is not enough.

First, how about doing some speaking? The local Chamber, Rotary, Jobs Group, Church, someplace. If you hate speaking, join Toastmasters.

On LinkedIn—add Events to your profile (add an Application) This will send notices of meetings your way.

Go on Quora.com and answer some questions—become known. (I went there and found it to be hard to register...)

Create a website about yourself—include your social sites…Talk about what you do, maybe even blog—but not just what you had for lunch.

Join a group that is outside of your usual area. If you are a computer type, join a genealogy group or a writing group. Mix it up!

I woke up and decided all my LinkedIn groups were sort of random—and I deleted them and got others.

That could happen again.
