Two unrelated conversations collided in my head yesterday.
I was listening to sports talk radio in the morning and there was a discussion of quarterbacks. The commentator was grading various quarterbacks and every team that is a perennial post season contender had a B+ to A+ quarterback. The conclusion is that teams with mediocre… Continue

For one of my projects this week, I had to create a social media job description. I did a quick search on Google and on various job boards, but I didn’t like any of the descriptions that I saw.
So, I wrote my own “perfect” job description which could be viewed almost as a checklist. I think the responsibilities should be stated in… Continue

Amber over at altitude gives us the skinny on what her job as a community manager really means
. Good reading, especially for those planning to be in this position or hiring for it.
As a community director, I see my role as a bit of a blend: part business development, part client services, part communications (like marketing and PR all smashed together). In short, my job is to stay connected and… Continue

My new blog covers social networking. Here is yesterday's entry:
If you’re limiting your job search to responding to job postings on Monster or Hotjobs, you’re limiting your chances for success. Every news story giving suggestions on how to improve your job search results recommends networking. And when it comes to the Internet the place to network in the business world is Linkedin.
Certainly there are other social networking web sites for business including Plaxo… Continue

I'm an MBA student at Pepperdine University. I'm graduating in April this year and I currently don't have a job and have gotten almost no interviews. So, I finally decided to take a different route to finding a job. I figure a resume can’t tell you that much about me, so, I decided to start this website. I am hoping to find a position in online or traditional consumer marketing, or in account director role at an advertising agency.

Furl, a web page archiving and bookmarking web service was bought by Diigo, a social bookmarking and annotation service. Diigo has made the acquisition of Furl from LookSmart, who released them earlier this week. The acquisition makes many frequenters of both sites happy now that they won't have to choose between the two. I am sure that the furl users… Continue

Though I get some cool freelance gigs, I've been without full-time employment since July. Initially, I spent countless daily hours glued to my computer surfing various job boards and career sites. My knee-jerk reaction was to 'leave no stone unturned,' submit to anything and everything, and perpetually revamp my resume. I also dramatically expanded my online social networks - a move that resulted in 100's of additional hours spent networking online. After a couple months, I was not only still… Continue

I'm a fan of buying relevant domain names. Notice I said relevant. I think a lot of people buy them and don't do much with them, and I try to get some content on each, but one particular name has really fallen by the wayside.
It's a shame, because this particular blog is a first page search on Google for "blog case studies" and "blogging case studies." It's BlogCaseStudies.com
So here's the deal. If you want exposure, and you… Continue

As Robin Sharma so eloquently noted: "the secret of happiness is simple: find out what you truly love to do and then direct all of your energy towards doing it.” ... So assuming you've already found your true passion - that ONE thing you simply can't imagine NOT doing every day for the rest of your life - what do you MOST need to make your dream a reality?
Perhaps you LOVE making movies and you're producing a film that simply MUST have a certain talent attached?
Maybe your… Continue
