As you have probably noticed, my personal blogging style is finding a topic I think will help you out and then writing about it, incorporating links to other sites or other postings within that topic. I don’t like overwhelming people. You’re under enough stress at the moment as it is. Thanks to a reply that another blogger left for me, I learned of a blog that is packed with first hand information from someone who has been through a relatively recent job hunt. I have looked at this blog a number of times. It has short, well written articles with advice on effective interviewing, writing resumes, using guerilla tactics, even an article about cover letters. There is a great deal of free advice here that the author is passing along. The articles are well worth reading.
The blog is so good that I could not pass it by. But I did have to think about how I was going to handle it. The blog is the free part of a commercial resume builder site. As a public library reference librarian, I do not recommend anything that you have to buy, online or off. I have never used anything on the site I am discussing except the free blog. I realize that just as I would recommend the “Learning Center” of Ancestry.com (a free section of a subscription database), I am recommending the JobSpice blog (also a free section of a commercial website). To take a look, click on JobSpice Blog and pick your topic from the right hand frame. Let me know what you think.
