Why does a career counselor want to blog?

The employment world changes so fast that there is always something new to discuss. Blogging is a perfect example of this. It began as an opportunity for self-expression, and of course it still is. But it also makes use of the Internet’s awesome potential for capturing the thinking of the moment. You’re not reading polished prose here – if this were to turn into a book, a lot of editing would have to take place. I value the creative opportunity to communicate with people on the topics that are of interest to so many of us. If I hear of a new interview question that is currently in use, I want to share it with you. If I have read a wonderful new book or seen an article on some aspect of employment, I will mention it here. If someone doesn’t get a job for an interesting reason, I want to talk about it. And judging from your response, you want to hear about these things and even respond to them.
This is the kind of material that used to be in a Q and A format in the weekly newspaper. The deadlines come around faster and the turnaround time is immediate, but the two-way communication continues.

I look forward to your comments, and ask you to stay tuned.

    Anne,

    I think the resume skill site is terrific. It confirms my remembrances of you teaching these skills at Anne Arundel Community College. Your ability to lead students to insights about their strengths and weaknesses and to assess their qualifications was always amazing. Students were then able to write their resumes and brush up on their interviewing skills with clarity and realistic expectations. My daughter-in-law used your help to obtain the excellent job she holds and has held for 14 years. Many thanks from all of us.
