How not to use blogs in a job search or employment
Filed under: Position Searching, Networking
Posted by: BlogMaster @ 1:47 pm

This entry continues the theme started a couple
of days ago Shouting Out about the importance
of NESACS Webmaster, David Cunningham, in
working and developing this blog.

Eric Felten described in his WSJ piece
about how blogs when used in certain
ways can lead to negative “unintended
consequences.”  Eric called blog articles
about a certain high profile conductor Internet
“blabbing” which led to savage reviews
from a prominent columnist.

The article is just an example supporting
how blogs can support your expertise and,
in a sense, expand your resume. 

The final anecdote in the Felten article
describes about how a famed pianist
made the “show go on” despite a stroke.
Not one person even mentioned it.
