Networking for Job Opportunities on Blogs

Networking for job opportunities has evolved along with the Web and one of the forums people are using to advertise their skills and availability are online blogs. Blogs (Web logs), chronicle the daily lives of authors and include personal as well as professional details. “It’s an informal way for job seekers to get the word out that they are looking for opportunities in a specific industry,” says Web researcher Ron Fruth. Because hiring managers are using blogs from the other side of the desk to draw in candidates and discover potential hires, it can be worth the time and effort to use blogs for career advancement. Here are some guidelines to follow if you are considering blogging as a way to kickstart your job search.
