Most of the readers or browsers of this blog are tuned to
careers in technical disciplines– chemistry, and its affiliated
sciences and engineering, physics, biology and physical
sciences and medically and material sciences.  Much of
the blog’s attention addresses
 - mainline job hunting skills and trends,
 - public relations documents (CV’s, resumes,
cover letters, research summaries, research proposals,
list of publications, list of references and the like)
 - interviewing and its continuum before, during and after
formal interviews,
 - decision processes and thinking.

This year in addition to these topics we have ventured
into a series of wise skills, which differentiates highly
qualified candidates from those who eventually receive
job offers.
  intentional attention
  NOW to overcome procrastination
  audience analysis, key to delivering an impactful presentation
  mentors and board members for start-ups.
  committed networking

We continued to delve deeply into the nuances of INTERVIEWS
since after all this is usually where our performance bears
on the hiring decision.  As situations arose during the year
on various parts of the interviewing continuum and its zeroth
level
, the personal self assessment, topics included were:
  mock interviews
  interviewing “red flags
  business interview apparel
  screening interview questions
  academic interviews
 
Several career and job trends were highlighted, including:
  interdisciplinary areas
  marketing strategies
  job growth areas
  Job descriptions
  Internet presence
  job search approaches
